Sagrada Familia, is the last on the tour so you can stay and explore it as long as you like, return in the coach to the city center.
We will leave the meeting point by bus and discover Passeig de Gracia. This broad elegant avenue was built for and by the wealthy Barcelonians and they have never left; luxury and design shops line the street along with major banks and the stock exchange. Architectural details include modernist lampposts and Gaudi's tiles for the pavement and a myriad of grand buildings including two of Gaudi's houses: Casa Batllo and Casa Milà also known as La Pedrera.

The temple is a synthesis of his overall conception of architecture. The richness of detail and its significance need explaining in order to appreciate this fascinating and extraordinary building in full.
Gaudi wanted the temple to be financed voluntarily by the people, not by taxes or funding, and that's just what your entrance fees do (included in our tour price): finance the completion of the building started in 1882.
The tour will end at the Sagrada Familia, so if you wish to, you can stay inside the Sagrada Familia for as long as you want. That will give you the opportunity to visit the Sagrada Familia museum.

Our guide Berta was excellent. We got to learn more about these places and Gaudi than I could have imagined. When you have a short time in Barcelona, this is the best tour.

Check in at Plaça de Catalunya
Passeig de Gràcia and Façade of La Pedrera (Casa Milà)
Board a comfortable, air-conditioned bus and drive along the Passeig de Gràcia, a luxurious avenue where you can find elegantly-designed shops, big banks and the Bolsa de Barcelona stock exchange. Here you can admire the curling exterior, balcony ironwork and helmeted chimneys of La Pedrera.
Story has it that the construction of Casa Batlló is inspired by a dragon pierced by St. George. The building's striking façade is reminiscent of scales or the surface of a serene sea. Roam around the noble floor, and head up to the 'dragon-back' roof terrace with its swirling chimneys.
Finally, reach the Sagrada Família, Gaudí's greatest unfinished work set to be completed in 2026. Examine the church façade representing the life of Jesus Christ. Stand in awe of the granite columns and play of colors inside the minor basilica. Peer into Gaudi's studio workshop at the museum.

My husband and I had the best time on this tour! Sonia was such a sweet and knowledgeable guide! We had a small group of about 15... people. This made maneuvering around very easy. The Sagrada Familia is breathtaking and a must see! Pictures you see online don't even do it justice. The information we learned from the tour was excellent. We went to Casa Batllo first and then the Sagrada Familia. From the Sagrada Familia we had the choice to return on the bus or head out on our own. My husband and I decided to hop in a taxi to Park Guell because it was close by. If you are traveling around the holidays I would recommend getting all tickets in advance/signing up for a tour before going. When we arrived to the Park Guell it was sold out for that day and the next. I highly suggest signing up for this tour. You won't regret it! more
Our guide Philip was engaging, knowledgeable and made our visit all the more enjoyable
The tour was great and our guide was quite knowledgeable. I highly recommend this tour.
Our guide was the best. He walked us through both with best info and history. The unfinished church which will finally be done in ...2026 was just awesome. City Discovery is best tour organization to work with more

Our tour guide was Monica, who did an outstanding job. She was very knowledgeable about the Guadi sites as well as the history of ...other Barcelona buildings nearby. She was patient, thoro and a really nice person. Thank you. more
It was a good tour - Packed the highlights of Park Guell and La Sagrada Familia into a quick few hours. The tour guide was great a...s well. The only suggestion I might have is to offer a little more free time at each venue. 30 minutes seemed like not quite enough time to explore on our own. Otherwise everything was great. more
This tour was very informative and easy to locate in Plaça Cataluyna. Took as to Casa Batlló and Sagrada Familia with time to expl...ore both on our own for a short time. Tour guide was very informative and helpful. more
I was disappointed that we did not stop at Park Guell for a guided tour as per your tour desc<x>ription on the website. This... was one of the reasons why I booked this tour. There would have been enough time if less time was spent at a couple of the other stops. more
I would recommend this tour as we only had a small window of time in Barcelona. I repaid before leaving Melbourne. Our tour guide ...Bernard was the making of this tour with his history knowledge and excellent English. more
The aqueduct on this tour is a "not to be missed." The Roman ruins of Taragona are not that spectacular, but the museum... offers a good overview and is part of the ruins - so should be a "must stop and see." Sitges is a beautiful seaside resort that is very inviting. more
Great gift shop. We were there in the afternoon, and it was windy and quite cold.
