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 :)

We really enjoyed this tour, walking through the streets where Picasso spent his early life. Our guide was very knowledgeable and it was great to skip the very long line at the museum.
Our guide was very knowledgable and spoke perfect English. The tour itself was very exciting and interesting. Glad we took it!
Excellent tour. Our knowledgeable guide was wonderful. It was fun to see Picasso's old haunts and learn details of his past at the same time. Seeing the paintings with her made all the difference.
This tour was terrific. The guide we had was very knowlegeable and well informed and just delightful.I am sorry that I cannot remember her name. She deserves a reward!
Super energetic and exciting tour guide. Made the walk extremely fun and entertaining. Walking through the streets and getting insights into Picasso's life there was fascinating. The museum also was tremendous. I ended up understanding the artist 200% more. Thank you.

If you like a short, yet informative walking tour, I highly recommend this one. Our tour guide was very knowledgable, patient, and kind to my older mother who had problems walking.
The tour guide new Picasso's work and life history very well, and she delivered every piece of information with such passion and enthusiasm that it would turn a commen person into an art enthusiast. The tour includes a nice walk into the city's older neighborhood which provides many photography moments. If you like short but sweet, informative but not boring, walking but not running, this is for you. I would do this tour again if given the chance.
This was an amazing tour of picasso and his early life in the gothic quarter. The musuem was fabulous as was our guide who was very knowledgeable about Picasso. Fantastic! We had plenty of time to visit the musuem.
