Yes. We will have an in-depth visit to both the interior and exterior of Gaudí's incredible masterpiece.
Is this tour wheelchair accessible?
The Hospital de Sant Pau is fully accessible and offers wheelchairs for rent. Sagrada Família is wheelchair accessible as well. The distance between the two venues is 1 kilometer (just over a half mile, approximately a 15 minute walk), and the surfaces are flat and paved.
Is this tour appropriate for children?
For young children (ages 3-12), we recommend our shorter Gaudí Tour for Kids tour, which is led by experts specially trained in educating children.
Does this include the Towers at Sagrada Familia?
The tickets we secure for this tour do not include the towers. Your guide may be able to assist you with upgrading your tickets on the day of the tour so you can climb one of the towers after, pending availability. The towers involve climbing a lot of stairs and are often very crowded so it isn't an experience that we recommend. Please feel free to contact us for advice and further suggestions.
