Find your guide and tour group waiting at the Plaça Catalunya, where you will see the Gothic Cathedral, famous for having taken six centuries to finish. You'll also see the Roman Wall's remains at Plaça Ramon Berenguer.

Proceed to the Picasso Museum for skip-the-line access at this popular attraction. Spend 45 minutes on a guided tour, getting to know the artist's style, his work and the highlights of his biography. See 4,200 pieces of art housed in 5 interconnected medieval palaces, including the 1957 series "Las Meninas" and some of his Blue Period works. After the guided tour, spend some free time exploring on your own.

Embark on your walking tour of the Gothic Quarter, getting the feel of the neighborhood as you pound the pavement (and cobblestone) between several highlights. At Plaça del Rei, visit the the Saló del Tinell, the 15th-century Santa Àgata’s chapel, and the Tower of King Martí.

Continue to Plaça Sant Jaume, where the city's two major Roman roads once crossed. It is now the center of Barcelona's political activity. End your tour here, just a 2-minute walk from La Rambla, where you can continue exploring on your own.

We walked through old gothic city and learned quite a bit of history from our guide. The museum was so interesting-this was an excellent well done tour

Amaia was our tour guide and you can tell right away that she was very knowledgeable about her city and about Picasso. Not only was she knowledgeable, you can tell she had a genuine interest in her city and of Picasso. My husband and I just finished watching Genius: Picasso on the history channel so we were very eager to see his work in person and to learn about him during his early years. Amaia was very helpful and thorough about Picasso so we enjoyed this tour very much. Amaia is so smart, we really enjoyed her and wished she was our tour guide for the Sagrada Familia. Book this tour and hopefully you will get Amaia as your guide, you will not regret it.

This was a great tour. We loved it. Highly recommend. Perfect amount of time allocated to the Picasso museum and also the gothic tour. Our guide was really knowledgeable and super friendly and organised. Well worth the money and only takes a small part of your day for those who are time poor

The walking tour part was great! Our guide was very knowledgeable and showed us some interesting places and architecture off the beaten path in the Gothic Quarter. The only place I felt a little bit rushed was in the Picasso Museum. We had the option to leave the group at the museum and stay longer but Phillip our guide made the walking tour part so interesting we decided to stay with the group.

Traveling through the neighborhoods of Barcelona is so much better when you have the opportunity to learn about its history. Our guide did a great job of sharing information about the city of Barcelona. Upon entering the museum, it was evident that she was also extremely knowledgeable about the life of Picasso and his art.

I was really glad we had a tour guide in the Picasso museum, however, we did not have enough time to adequately view his work and I'm not an art or museum person.

The details of the walking tour were lacking in terms of the details and architecture of the neighborhood. Beware this tour also requires headsets to listen to the guide. I just felt it placed us at a disadvantage for pick-pocketing.

This was an excellent 2 1/2 tour that I highly recommend. Our guide Artur was pleasant, funny and extremely knowledgeable about the history of Barcelona and Picasso's early works. I learned so much that I didn't know before! Thank you, Artur!

Wonderful snapshot on the history of Barcelona and the gothic area. Artur was a good guide providing interesting commentary and perspective on the evolution of arte modernista and details of Picasso life and influences.

This was a great walking tour which included a very well in depth tour of the Picasso Museum. The walking tour was very art/Picasso focused rather than overall about Barcelona. Lots of info and no waiting in lines.
