Hi! My name is Onno. I've been a tour guide in Barcelona for almost 5 years and have been a guide for a total of 10 years, in 4 different cities.

Never has a building captured my attention the way Sagrada Familia has, and I've been a guide in Paris, Amsterdam and Brussels!

My obsession with Sagrada grew as I started learning about it's history, symbolism, innovative construction techniques and came to know the stories of the people involved in it.

Stories and details are what makes a place special and unique. I will guide you beyond the superficial and make you appreciate Sagrada Familia for the miracle it is.

I'm a photographer as well so I can help you take the best shots from the best places

Really fantastic tour. An amazing introduction to Gaudi and the Sagrada Familia by a guide who is clearly very experienced. Onno was a pleasure. A clear communicator who has a passion for history, architecture and detail. Very very enjoyable. I had booked the outside tour with Onno and then immediately after that an inside tour. In comparison his intro and general overview of Guadi and the exterior of the building was much better! Highly recommended.

Onno is an excellent guide: funny, knowledgeable, and courteous to all his guests. I’ve been on two tours of Sagrada Familia before and neither was as detailed as Onno’s. It’s a must for anyone curious about the basilica and its significance!

This was one of the best guided tours I have ever been to. Onno is a great tour guide with all the experience you might desire and a friendly and welcoming personality. He was even experienced and confident enough to be honest and interested when he did not know an answer rather than faking a response which is a mark of a good guide. I could not rate this higher if it was not for the slight confusion about costs and flexibility of fees which I find quite uncomfortable because I don't want to get things wrong. The basic fee was set stupidly low... the request was middling and unclear and I had no idea what to pay at the end of the session... It is still one of the best experiences of my vist to Barcelona.

Onno is the best story teller. It was awe inspiring to listen to the background story on Gaudy and Sangria Familia. Highly recommend you go on the tour before going inside the Sangria Familia...
