Everything was so easy. We met our guide, Begonia, across the street, which was a perfect spot for a group photo before we bypassed the long lines and entered the temple. Begonia spoke English perfectly, was extremely knowledgeable, and had a great sense of humor. She not only knew all the history and facts about Gaudi and the Sagrada Familia, but she grew up in Barcelona so she was able to give us anecdotes and stories of the temple as well as the Spanish culture. We had several teenagers in our group and she kept them fully engaged throughout the tour. Although I had already visited the Sagrada Familia, I learned so much more being on a private tour, especially with Begonia as our guide.

I can’t say enough positive things about our experience with Carolina and Skip the Line. We were unsure about using a tour guide because we had never used one before, so we waited until we arrived in Barcelona to set something up. They responded immediately and were flexible concerning meeting times. We made an easy payment through PayPal and we were all set up. We met up with Carolina two blocks from where we were staying and she immediately engaged our 6 and 9-year-old kids. We went on to a tour that was incredibly informative from a historical perspective, but also in current events. And, it was great to get the perspective on current events from a local. Carolina was honest AND even-handed. The tour ended with “Certificates of Achievement” in understanding Barcelona for my kids. Skip the Line and Carolina were a highlight of our trip and I highly recommend them.

Best way to start our Trip !!!!

We signed up for the Highlights tour on our first full day in Barcelona and it was the perfect way to start our trip. Carolina was a great and patient guide and she really helped us get our bearings. We saw a few different areas of the city, learned a lot about each neighborhood, and ended up with a great tour of La Sagrada Familia. I highly recommend scheduling a tour with Skip the Line – they were professional, on time, organized and really fun to hang out with!

Gaudi Barcelona Sagrada Familia private city tours

Antoni Gaudí i Cornet (1852-1926)

Born in Riudoms, a small village in the south of Catalonia, Gaudí moved to Barcelona so he could study architecture at university and ended up staying in the city for the rest of his life. This is why a large part of his works can be found in Barcelona.

He is unquestionably the greatest of all the Catalan architects. Without his works, Barcelona today would undoubtedly not be the same and would not have the international recognition it enjoys nowadays.

Visit with us Antoni Gaudí’s masterpieces. Choose from his many different projects such as apartment buildings, and unique houses such as La Pedrera (Casa Milà), Casa Batlló, Palau Güell, Sagrada Família Church, and Park Güell.

 Picasso museum Barcelona private city tours

Pablo Ruiz Picasso ( 1881-1973)

Born in Malaga, in the southern region of Andalusia in Spain, Picasso’s family moved to Barcelona when he was 14, where he attended Fine Arts schools and held his first exhibition. The 10 years that he spent in Barcelona were crucial for his artistic training and future success.

The Picasso Museum in Barcelona was the first Picasso Museum in the world; it opened in 1963 and is one of the most visited museums in Barcelona. The arrangement of the works inside the museum interior shows us the evolution of the artist throughout his life.

We recommend you combine the Picasso Museum with a visit to the Sagrada Família, an excellent choice to admire the work of two geniuses. (More info here)

Joan Miro painter artist Miro museum in Barcelona private city tours

Joan Miró i Ferrà ( 1893-1983)

Joan Miró was a pure Barcelonian. He created a very personal style, with a unique artistic language. His works are colorful and childish. The Miró Museum opened in 1975 in a modern gallery built by Josep Lluís Sert. Right from the start, the museum has been a dynamic center where Joan Miró’s work coexists with cutting-edge contemporary art.

We are so lucky in Barcelona to have two museums dedicated to geniuses such as Miró and Picasso; a combined visit to both museums gives you a glimpse into the avant-gardes of the 20th century. The Picasso Museum is located in the Barrio Gótico or Old City and the Miró museum is on the Montjuïc Hill.
