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.

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.
