Loved this tour! Walking through the Old City of Barcelona definitely enhanced our knowledge and appreciation of Picasso. Unfortunately, I can't recall the guide's name (July 8 at 3pm), but he was outstanding -- particularly his discussion of the paintings once we arrived inside the museum. It was wonderful that we were allowed to remain in the museum after the tour for as long as we wanted!
Even if you don't love Picasso, you will by the end of this tour! My son and I really loved the walking tour, meandering around old streets of Barcelona, seeing where Picasso lived and drank! Then we skipped that line at the Museum. Our guide had a wonderful and passionate manner and made it all come alive for us! Well worth doing.
Excellent Tour! To be honest, we only registered for the tour because there were no tickets available directly from the Picasso Museum for our last day in Barcelona. The Viator tour was our only way to get into the museum. But the tour was much better than the museum would have been on our own. The walking tour, from Carlos, gave us lots of insights that we wouldn't have gained otherwise, and it was fun. It lasted one hour. Then when we got to the museum there was a huge line but we got to walk past it. When we got inside the museum, some of us in the group were swapped from Carlos's group to another Viator tour guide in order to meet the museum's group size limit so we could get in faster, because it was an unusually crowded day. We only waited about 5 minutes. The new tour guide was also excellent. I didn't ever get her name. She was able to organize the paintings in groups for us so that they made sense in relation to events in Picasso's life. In the end, we were quite glad that we had taken the Viator tour rather than visiting the museum on our own. Highly recommended.
This tour is awesome once you find the Big "i" and go down the steps to get your headsets. Our tour guide was exceptionally knowledge about Picasso's life. His art appreciation knowledge helped us understand the paintings more. We definitely skipped the lines and had tons of time in the museum after the tour was over.
Les passionnés de peinture et les fans de l'oeuvre de Picasso se régaleront!
Excellent tour. The guide was wonderful and had a wealth of knowledge. Very worthwhile tour
Enjoyed a fantastic tour with Gina yesterday. She is extremely knowledgeable and was very patient with my sons questions.
The tour is two parts. The first is an hours walk through the Gothic quarter where Picasso commenced his career. The second is a
guided tour through the Museum which was excellent.
Highly recommend this tour.
Highly recommend the tour.
The tour was very informative and the guide was extremely knowledgeable, giving us all kinds of information you would have difficulty discovering on your own.
We would highly recommend this tour. It leaves from a central easy to find spot. Very well organized with a highly enthusiastic guide (Sandra in our case) who gives you a hearing device so you can easily hear her as you walk.
She led us on a 2 hour amazing walk through the Gothic quarter pointing out all the highlights in Picasso's life ,showing us places of interest and his relevant paintings in a book she carried. The tour ended in the Museum where we could appreciate the paintings so much more as we had context on them. We also went back to explore the Gothic quarter which is a delight. Not to forget cutting across the entry line at the museum. Do not miss this one!
Very informative tour and reasonable price when you consider the museum entrance is covered. Wonderful walk in the old quarter with a very informative guide who gave tips on where to eat and what to go back and see.
Very good tour. The break in between the walking tour and the river tour was perfect for relaxing and having a bite to eat. Only bit missed out was walking nearer and over the "bridge of sighs" which was a pity.
Great tour; the walk thru some of Picasso's old haunts gave unique insight to the inspiration behind Minsky of his works. We went back for a glass of cava at 4 Cats!
Took this tour on my first full day in Barcelona. Not only was it interesting, but also a great way to walk around and get oriented to the city. Cool stories about Picasso's history in Barcelona - where he lived and hung out. Being able to skip the line at the museum is a great bonus. Loved seeing some of his early works!
We took 5 organized tours while in Barcelona and our two walking tours were the best. Sandra our tour guide was excellent. She provided so much information and was very easy to understand.
Great tour! We walked around Barcelona with the tour guide pointing out highlights of Picasso's life from childhood. Then, we ended the visit in Picasso museum where we understand how events in Picasso's life influenced his artworks. Great way to appreciate art :)
