Full description
Explore 2 of Barcelona’s most iconic landmarks on a comprehensive tour of Parc Güell and the Sagrada Familia.

Start at Parc Güell Park on Carmel Hill in the north of the city to admire some of Antoni Gaudi’s finest handiwork. Marvel at the Art Nouveau (Modernisme) motifs of its main highlights, such as the mosaic tiles of the salamander statue (“El Drac”) at the park entrance. You will then have 1.5-hour to yourself so you can have lunch.

Then travel to the Sagrada Familia cathedral in the 19th-century extension of the L’Eixample, and admire the contrasting façades of Gaudi’s unfinished masterpiece. Go inside the basilica to look up at the towering spires.

See models of what the cathedral would look like when completed, as imagined by Gaudi, and learn the history and symbolism of the depictions of the Holy Family as an expression of Christian ideology on the elaborate Nativity and Passion façades.

Marc was a great guide and the tour was quite good

As stated in other reviews, the tour is in both English and Spanish. This was disturbing at first since there was not a lot to see or do while the information was presented in a second language (we were thinking the tour could be done in half the time) but as it progressed, we were able to see things in more detail as the second language was used so it actually was not a problem. The park and its history were interesting and the Sagrada Familia was breathtaking. The transportation between the two was comfortable and worthwhile.

Excellent!! We recommend this tour.

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and a very good English speaker, easy to understand. The only downside, if there was one, it was supposed to be an English only tour and the tour guide spent 50% percent of her time speaking in Spanish for people in the tour that were not comfortable speaking English. I understand that I am in a foreign country, but this was advertised as English tour and I think she could have spent more time explaining things about the sites we visited if she didn't have to do the commentary in 2 languages. Thank you for the great experience.

Jorge was an excellent and informative guide!!

Jorge's presentation in Spanish and English was so well done. I can not imagine touring either the Parq Guell or the Sagrada Familia without his detailed description of Gauli's conception for either place. Thank you, Jorge...it was an excellent way to spend an afternoon in the beautiful city of Barcelona.
