    Our guide was Aida. She was terrific. She explained everything with enough detail to keep it interesting. During the walk in the neighborhood on the way to the museum, besides discussing Picasso she told us about many Catalan customs. Once at the museum her knowledge and passion for Picasso was evident. Highly recommend Aida and this tour.

    This was an informative and fun tour. Olga was a great guide. We got to see buildings in the Born that I had not appreciated. Her knowledge of art is extensive. She spent way over 2 hours with us and this tour was a highlight. My only criticism is that the directions to find the meeting place were lacking. We got lost because of this- (the place de catalunya is large)- however calling and getting help through the app did save the day. You could specifiy what corner the stairs are and that this is a tourism office to make it clear where to meet for this tour. We thoroughly enjoyed it all however. We only arrived 5 minutes late.

    The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the life and works of Picasso. At the end of the walking tour I felt I had just completed a crashed course on Picasso covering his different periods works starting from young age of 15 till his death in 1973 in 2. 5 hours. He's very professional and took time and patience to answered our questions.
