This was most certainly not the best day for a tour walking because it was (perhaps unseasonably) just wet and cold enough to make outside uncomfortable. It was a small group tour with Judit who kept it interesting with commentary you would not get from a guide book and not from the guides provided in Sagrada Familia.
The tour description provides an excellent outline of what to expect but not necessarily in the order listed.
It is worth noting that Sagrada Familia is most certainly not just another European church - if you have seen a few you know what I mean. It becomes even more interesting with expert commentary on what you might not notice in the details or not understand why it was done like that. And that alone makes this tour exceptional.
The tour ended at another strange Gaudi creation with self guides that responded to your location - no looking for numbers or device menus - a great use of technology.

This tour company is fantastic. They made all our tours so memorable. The guides are very knowledgeable and they really cared about our needs. The Sagrada Familia is so moving and spiritual, take your time and take in all that it has to offer. Our experience with EXPLORE CATALUNYA was fantastic, they were the nicest people to deal with.

Gloria was awesome! She was so detailed, thoughtful, funny, attentive and full of so much information it was amazing!
I was born in Barcelona but had never been back...and Gloria stayed in touch with me after the tour giving me suggestions as to where to go to where to inquire about recovering my birth records. This was way beyond the requirements of a tour guide and I will forever be grateful for all her interest and support in my endeavors!
She was adorable, always referring to us on the tour as “my people”. 🥰
Tony was also a great driver and got us all home in one piece.
I highly recommend this tour for the level of detail it provides to the novice or 1st time visitor in Barcelona...and also it’s the best way to avoid the lines. 😉
Salute! 🥂

This company was recommended BUT they are only as good as the guide you get! Our guide used no "whisperers" or headphone device so it was difficult to hear anything as she walked ahead of us facing away. And she refused to use a paddle or flag of any type so we could find her or follow. The small group was 21 people. We did get to see and hear about La Sagrada because the church hands out whisperers and forces tour guides to use them. When we finished the tour we walked out of the church and she told us we would have 25 minutes of free time to go to the gift shop, photos, etc and said, "Meet back here." Because I travel alone I was back in 18 minutes to be on time. There was no one there. I waited until the appointed time and still saw no one - just the 1-2,000 wandering in front of the church. I stayed 5 more minutes and then began to run back and forth in front of the church trying to find anyone in the group or hope they saw me. After 30 minutes I knew they must have left me. It took me 20 minutes to find a tourist stand who could assist me. They called the local number and explained my situation. I was told that I never showed up and they left me - not true! Their solution was for me to "kill 2 hours", take a taxi to the restaurant they were eating at and hope to find them for the rest of the day! After talking to the tourist assistant, she told me there was very little walkable surrounding the church that would be of interest for 2 hours and that the restaurant was isolated so going there would give me nothing to do either. The decision was made for me to simply take a taxi back to my cruise ship and lose the day of touring. Upon arrival at the ship, I phoned the local office again to politely explain I was not going to go to the restaurant and hope the guide would be there. The agent in the office was extremely rude told me I was totally wrong in getting lost, never showed and basically that I was too stupid to be able to find my way around! I was angry and insulted! I did contact my travel agent who contacted Viator, the booking company. Viator stood by me and refunded my money for the tour. But, the day, sites and memories were stolen by Explore Catalunya. I would never recommend nor use that company again!

Explore Catalunya is a wonderful tour guide business. We went on the Best of Barcelona Tour Including Sagrada Familia. Rodrigo, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and funny. He kept the mood light even as we tired from heat toward the end of the tour. The experience he provided was so good that people he had guided earlier in the week would stop just to say hi to him. I would definitely recommend using this service and if you get Rodrigo as your tour guide you are in for a very exciting experience!

We had a wonderful time doing the Barcelona full day tour, with Miguel as our guide. What we appreciated the most is his capacity to go « left field », meaning stepping out on the ordinary tour guide speech to provide us with great explanations of the past history, but also great comments on how these buildings are still evolving through time.

Wonderful guide for a wonderful outing!

We took this tour with a group of 13 of us. It is difficult to make a group happy but our guide Eduardo was amazing. He was informative and delightful. He made sure that everyone was happy. We had wanted to experience traditional paella and sangria and he was even able to arrange a last minute reservation for lunch for the group of us. The pride and joy he took in Barcelona was so nice to see. Everyone in our group was beyond happy and we came away with such a good feeling. La Segrada was amazing and we were so happy that we were able to go right in as well. Worth it all!!!
