Excellent experience. Our guide greatly enriched the amazing visual experience of the cathedral adding a history and context to what we were seeing and calling out details that we likely would have missed.

The first time I tried to enter through the ticket line, my ticket was rejected, then I tried one of the guides, but the same thing happened. I ended up missing my tour. They were nice enough to reschedule for the next day due to the confusion, telling me to wait in the Plaza del Triunfo for a guide with a green umbrella. I did as they told me over the phone and waited in the Plaza del Triunfo, arriving 1/2 an hour early and looking attentively for my guide. Yet again, I didn’t find anybody, and when I called again, they said I was supposed to wait in the main entrance for someone with a BLUE umbrella, contradicting what I was told yesterday on two fronts. In the end, I wasted 22€ (non-refundable) without taking the tour because the company couldn’t give me accurate instructions to access the tour. Needless to say, this is the last time I’m buying tickets through this company, and I wouldn’t recommend this company to anyone else, either. Instead, I would try a self-guided tour.
