My mum and I had a great time with tour guide Mariella during the modernism tour. We just wanted to have a tour which went through the new town (having already done the old town), but were very surprised when we actually really got into learning about modernism- and were not at all disappointed. We got a great feel for the new town and learnt some amazing facts along the way. Mariella knew her stuff and explained things with loads of enthusiasm- catering to all audiences. I would highly recommend.

Our second tour was on 24/11/19 with Mariella. Gaudí and the modernism. Again amazing buildings with amazing views, Mariella was full of interesting facts like the story of the four cats and showed us a hidden gem/restaurant, EL NACIONAL, in Passeig de Gracia, which we would have bypassed otherwise.

Yes, you should definitely pre-book, the queues are very long otherwise. We recommend that if you want to visit the inside of the temple you book your tickets for the same day at either 19.00 or 19.15. That should give you time to finish the tour and go inside comfortably. You can book your tickets here, at the official Sagrada Familia webpage https://sagradafamilia.org/en/home
