Loved this experience, especially the haunts in the old part of town. The museum was interesting in that we really didn't know what Picasso was able to do when he was a kid.
A good, two hour tour that shows you some of the haunts of Picasso whilst he was in Spain and moves on to the museum. Whilst the museum doesn't have any of his best known works, it is an excellent way to see how talented the young Picasso was at 13 and show you how his style/s developed. Recommended!
This was an excellent tour! Carlos was so engaged and knowledgeable about Picasso,
his life and other artists of the era. We would definitely recommend this tour!
Our guide on this tour was terrific. We did a tour of the Gothic Quarter highlighting time Picasso spent there plus an overview of his career. The guide made it very interesting even if you aren't an art lover. Inside the Picasso Museum he talked about specific works. A great tour of the Gothic Qtr.
Once we figured out that the meeting location was in the Placa Catalunya square itself, then down a stairway below the plaza...we enjoyed an exceptional tour. We were provided headsets and we could regulate the volume control to our individual needs. The guide spoke English clearly and had such a pleasant voice. The pace and the information provided was perfect. Touring the museum with a guide - priceless!!!
Excellent! For a disabled person there are big challenges in this tour; the rest of us took the hike in stride and enjoyed every minute of it.
Our guide was fabulous. I would recommend that anyone wishing to visit the Picasso museum and Picasso's influence in the area, that you consider doing it with Viator. The experience was a highlight for our family.
A wonderful combination of art and history. Plus, our guide was wonderfully knowledgable and passionate about the subject.
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!
