Great way to work around the streets of Barcelona, hearing about Picasso's early experiences in the city. The Picasso museum mainly focuses on his early life, so if your expecting more modern works you may be disappointed. Definitely worth the money.
Our tour guide was wonderful. Very knowledgeable and passionate about Picasso. Enjoyed it a great deal.
Good balance between the different balances of Picassos life and his work. Nice walk.
The tour itself was quite interesting but finding the exact meeting location was not a pleasant experience. We waited in line at the wrong counter only to be directed to another counter where we again had to wait in line. There were no clearly marked visible signs for the walking tour and the guide was extremely rude and sarcastic when I brought this to her attention.
Fabulous! A great guide made this tour simply brilliant . If you have any an inkling of interest in Picasso, it's a must do.
What a wonderful and enlightening tour. Not only did we get to see the Picasso museum with a guide who had a doctorate in art history, but we also got to wander around the neighborhood where Picasso once lived and it was a fascinating area that we would have never found on our own. Our guide, Juan, was very articulate and had a passion for his subject. We learned so much both on the walk and inside the museum. I totally enjoyed this activity!
the best guide around Barcelona -Gotic Bari- and our trip to the Picasso. Our guide was informative took as to all the highlights of the area and ending up at the picasso! I highly recommend this tour!
Another good tour and all about Picasso's early years. Elizabeth knows art and how cultural influences changed Picasso's view and paintings. Be aware that if you take the 3 PM tour, the museum is the last stop after nearly 2 hr of walking. It is a large museum and so you may want to save some energy prior. This tour left right on time, so don't be late.
We loved the experience of having a very knowledgeable guide help us understand Picasso's significance -- I have lived with art all my life but he wove together concepts and observations that helped me understand all the more. It was also great to see where Picasso spent time - you could almost feel his presence. We also enjoyed not having to wait in line - it's very crowded. Well worth it!
Really enjoyed the visit to Barcelona.
Food was great and seeing Gaudi's work is amazing.
Wonderful tour!! Our tour guide, Olga, was a wealth of knowledge and a great communicator, and made this tour an marvelous experience.
MaryBeth, our walking guide was top notch. We loved the stroll though the city, as Marybeth explained just enough to make it interesting but not so much that I wanted to tune her out. The pace was perfect, and ending up at the Picasso Museum was ideal so as to allow additional time if desired to see more on our own. Marybeth answered questions to assist guests - since the tour ends at the museum. We were delighted with the afternoon. It was a favorite!!
Very good tour, guide was very knowledgeable. Plan to stay longer in the museum... lots to savor there!

Olga was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic. she really knows art.
Good tour! I liked actually going to the places Picasso was at with his family and friends. Our guide, Mary Beth was friendly and knowledgeable. I would recommend this tour.
This was a great tour! We enjoyed seeing the different areas of the Gothic Quarter and the guided tour of the Picasso Museum. The length of walking time was perfect - not too short or long. Our guide, Elizabeth, was very knowledgeable and seemed to enjoy showing the large group around. This tour was worth doing - highly recommend!
Fascinating! Our tour guide was amazing! From our meeting point to the museum we felt like we knew Picasso at some level.
This was a terrific experience exploring Picasso's influence on Barcelona and Spain -- as well as a nice visit to the Picasso museum. Loved skipping the long line to get into the Museum and our guide did a nice job. I highly recommend this.
Maribell was an excellent tour leader. Friendly, considerate, and well-informed. She walked us through the Barri Gotic, La Ribera, and El Born areas that Picasso had evidently frequented during the 10 years he lived in Barcelona. The walk was longer than we had expected, but we were glad to have that introduction to this part of the city. The museum visit was fantastic! Maribell showed us certain highlights in one portion of the museum and then we were on our own to stay as long as we wished. Our only disappointment is that the Picasso museum prohibits any photos---even none-flash. Compared with the Dali Museum in Figueres, which has no such restriction, which we had visited with a Viator tour the day before. There's no consistency among museums on this point. Otherwise, the tour is highly recommended.
Well worth doing. The guide was brilliant and the tour was excellent. An interesting insight into the life of Picasso and his work.
Picasso, a Master must not be missed.the walking tour that took 2-3 hours of our time was worth it.
This tour was really interesting and fun. We used headsets so it was easy to hear the guide as we navigated the narrow streets to the museum. We had several stops along the way where the guide shared stories of why the area was important to Picasso and then showed us pictures of work produced that was influenced by that area. Our guide was so knowledgeable and obviously passionate about Picasso, history and art in general. The tour of the museum was enhanced as we had heard about the various phases of Picasso's art and then could see it as we toured the museum. Wonderful experience!
