Your Sagrada Familia Semi-Private Group Tour begins with a meet and greet just next to the basilica while you, the other fellow travelers, and your guide get acquainted. There, you will be able to take advantage of the unobstructed view of Gaudi’s creation from the ground where you can snap a few keepsake photos before your guide leads you and your semi-private group to a beautiful vantage point where you will learn about the history behind this rare architectural wonder, Gaudi’s life, and his inspirations.
Wanting to share the story of the Bible with his fellow citizens, Gaudi made the bold move of depicting the story on the façades with stone figures. The side facing the east, with over 300 animals and people, depicts the Birth of Christ and his 33 years of life on Earth. The opposite façade shows the 12 Stations of the Cross and his ascension into Heaven. While the southern facing façade, yet to be decorated, will show the Final Judgment and the Glory of God. Your guide will take the time to share with you the details and meaning behind the decoration, inspired by Gaudi’s deep faith. You will learn these and many other interesting and curious facts only with your LivTours expert tour guide.
Once inside the Sagrada Familia, enjoy the serenity of the space as you explore the basilica’s awe-inspiring interior with its soaring ceilings. Be prepared to be entranced by the expressive architecture of Gaudi which was designed to simulate a forest, a place of nature where Gaudi felt closest to God. See the incredible morning light beaming through the colorful stained glass windows and feel the atmosphere of the enchanted forest made of stone! You will finish the tour inside, allowing you as much free time as you desire to wander around and process all of the stories and tales presented to you by your expert guide and continue with your afternoon explorations.

All LivTours Semi-Private Group Tours are limited to 6 guests per tour guide. Our commitment to maintaining our uniquely tiny group sizes can sometimes be a little tricky, mathematically speaking. For example, we want to ensure that traveling families and friends can tour together so on rare occasions we may add one or two guests in order to not split groups. On that same note, you may also find yourself on tour with less than six people! We thank you for your understanding and flexibility.
Informative tour through a beautiful place
"I went on the La Sagrada Familia tour and I was blown away by how awesome the location was and how interesting the tour was. Olga was our guide and she exceeded the high standard that LivTours sets for their guides. My wife and I have gone on multiple tours with LivTours in the last 5 years and we cannot recommend this company enough…and Olga really impressed us with how much information she knew about the La Sagrada Familia and she had such a welcoming attitude and energy!"

A Great Afternoon at the Sagrada Familia.
"Olga was an awesome tour guide: she made the tour very intriguing and she was very nice and excited to share her knowledge with us. Our group ended up to be just my wife and I, but her excited and knowledge made the afternoon perfect. "

Above and Beyond
"I was unable to make the tour because I woke up sick, but my daughter was excited to go and still went. The tour guide was Olga, and she went above and beyond to by taking pictures that my daughter could send to me, as well as give us many recommendations for dinner! I was very happy and impressed that she still tried to make me feel apart of the tour even though I was not there! I highly recommend this tour!"
