Nuria our guide was very thorough, guided us through El born at a fare pace, and helped us understand how Picasso started. Would have wished more time in Picasso museum and gift shop though.

Sophia was a fantastic tour guide. I learned so much about Picasso and his art. Not to mention a history of Barcelona. Sophia’s use of an iPad to show additional works not currently on display was very helpful.

Leader was very informed and excellent at conveying the life and influences that impacted Picasso throughout his life. Also memorable to explore some of the gothic areas. The VR was ok, but could be enhanced to provide more than just abloom at the space. Why not introduce people into the spaces carrying on their daily routine??

This is a must tour. It's short and covers the must see locations in old quarter. If you like art you will like the insight of the guide. Even if you don't Picasso's story is interesting. I would suggest reserving the visit for Barcelona Basilica right after since the tour end in front.

The Picasso Museum and Gothic Quarter Tour was fantastic. It was clear Tonja knew her historical knowledge of the Gothic Quarter and Barcelona history. The Picasso Museum was aw inspiring. Highly recommend this tour and cannot say enough good things about Tonja/very impressed. The 4 teenage children we had with us enjoyed the tour as well/never assumed with teenagers. Thank you Tonja!

Tour guide was excellent . 3D visionary glasses was in my opinion a waste.

The tour itself was interesting . The portions that you use the 3D glasses in our opinion was dumb and not even accurate .

Thank you for taking your time for the review. We love to hear the opinion of our customers! we really appreciate your comments about the interesting of the tour. Respect to the 3D glasses we try to show the evolucion of that part of the city from the Roman age (with the 3D glasses) to nowadays. This is the oldest part of the city so we think it is very important to know the history but it is not possible without a recreation 3D. Many thanks for all! and have a lovely day!

I had visited both the Gothic area and the Picasso Museum, and this tour was wonderful. I learned more about the area and a great deal more about Picasso. Our guide, Tanja, was exception. She had so much detailed information and presented it with such passion and with so much caring. She had a delightful sense of humor and was very attentive to everyone's needs. Barcelona came alive with Tanja's knowledge and her descriptions of what we were seeing and experiencing. An excellent tour. Highly recommended.
