Walking tour was fairly good--enjoyed visiting Picasso's stomping grounds. The group was a little large so it was hard to hear in the back--head sets would have been nice. Would have liked a little more discussion about Picasso's personal life. Jan 2017

Fabulous tour. Loved this. Our guide was VERY knowledgeable and told us amazing stories of Picasso. I wish photographs were allowed inside the museum, but still enjoyed it nonetheless.
Quite informative! I particularly liked the old city walk leading to the Picasso museum. Knowledgeable guide too!
Unfortunate purchase for us as we couldn't use the e ticket. When you purchase the e-ticket you are given the impression that you will have entry to each of the museums. This is untrue. When we went to the Picasso Museum they told us that the e-ticket could only be redeemed at the tourist office that were all closed when we arrived because it was the day after 3 Kings parade. The next day we went to yet another tourist office that didn't have the ticket book we have run out so we trekked to another tourist office to finally get our booklet. As it turns out 5 of the 6 museums aren't open on Monday. So for us this turned out to be more expensive than paying directly. We leave Tuesday.. Very disappointing.
Doing what: Barcelona Museum Pass
Great tour. Very informative, not only about Picasso, but Barcelona also. We were told about his favourite cafe, The Four Cats. went for coffee and lunch later in the week. Excellent. You need to book for dinner, very busy.
The Picasso museum was disappointing. It contained none of his best work. The paintings exhibited were mostly his very early ones which were interesting from an art history point of view. The rest of the tour which involved a lot of walking was only moderately interesting.

Our impression of Pucasso was totally changed! Amazing tour! It was interesting to learn about the early life of Picasso. Our guide was very knowledgeable.
Annette our tour guide was wonderful. We met at the Placa Reial and began a walking tour of the Gothic Quarter and the area where Picasso lived and worked before moving to France. Annnette was very knowledgeable about the art and food of Barcelona and pointed out many areas of interest. Because both couples on this intimate tour had been in Barcelona, she tailored to tour to things we did not know. She also tailored the tapas, which consisted of a stop for savory dishes along with our choice of beverage. We choose a Spanish red of her choice which was wonderful. We then walked to the Picasso museum where ample time was allowed for us to visit the entire exhibition. While not included in the price of the tour, pre-arranged, skip the line tickets were available to us for 16.00 each. We then walked to our next tapas stop for dessert and Cava, the local Catalyunian sparkling wine. Annette ordered traditional treats of Catalyunian Creme, bread and chocolate and chocolate and whipped cream. it was a wonderful afternoon and we would do it again!
Doing what: Guided Art and Tapas Walking Tour in Barcelona
This was a wonderful walking tour of the places Picasso lived and frequented in Barcelona. Our guide was wonderful and very passionate about Picasso. After walking in many parts of the city, our guide took us through the Picasso museum and shared all of his knowledge about Picasso and his life as an artist.
There are very few sites in Barcelona that are relevant to Picasso's life. Most of the tour was spend wandering through the streets with little explanation of what we were seeing. While our guide was knowledgeable about Picasso's work and art, it would have been better to have a half hour walk followed by a 45-minute illustrated lecture about Picasso's work. I found it annoying to spend so much time walking while listening to things that were unrelated to our walk. I would seriously rethink how this tour works rather than continue offering it.
The walking tour was long, not interesting but the museum and the information the guide gave us in the museum was excellent
This a great way to see the old part of Barcelona the guide we had was very insightful and imparted a lot of depth about Picasso - The Museum is wonderful - after the tour worth spending more time - our group was about 12 people good size and all in excellent English
Our guide was so knowledgeable, and she made the entire tour quite interesting. It was fun to walk some of the same roads that Picasso traveled, and that enhanced the experience of the museum.
This was a great walking tour. Not only did it show you local haunts of Picasso, but you could see many great areas of Barcelona and public art. The museum itself is very nice and well worth the visit. Great time and nice job by Viator.
We had an exceptional guide who told the highlights of Picasso's life along with specific techniques used for us novices with little art background. This was a memorable highlight of our trip to Barcelona.

The info was great, but the guide walked way too fast, never stopped for us to take pictures and never paused his lecture for us to ask questions. The guided part in the museum was especially good. If they slowed the walk a bit and interacted more with the participants, asking for questions, I'd give it a 5.
While we started out 15 minutes late, the tour leader was well-informed and personable. Sometime he was a bit hard to understand. We feel we certainly got our moneys worth and saw much of the old town. The museum as interesting and our guide knew it by heart. The tour ended almost a half hour overtime, but worth it.
Great informative tour.
Lots of spots, lots of information, ending at the Picasso Museum was great. We got to stay there as long as we wanted.
Guide knew her subject matter as well as info about the whole surrounding area.
