Our guide was well informed but also a lot of fun. Enjoyed hearing our questions and had answers for them. The first part of the tour which involved seeing some places Picasso visited or where there was some of his artwork served as great preparation for the Picasso Museum itself. He did a great job of explaining the development of Picasso as an artist.

Excellent way to see Barcelona and learn about Picasso at one time.

I forget our guide’s name but she was wonderfully engaging and made you feel very welcome in her city. She was beautiful with long brown hair. I loved all the details she shared about various paintings we saw as well as details about the neighborhood as we walked around. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who appreciates art and history.
