    I really enjoyed the tour. Our guide Olga Escribano was very welcoming and knowledgeable. I felt that I got a lot more out of the Picasso Museum than I would have if I'd just visited myself, and found out lots of interesting facts that I didn't know before. Plus having somebody familiar with Barcelona for the walking tour was great not only for info about Picasso, but also getting to know the city itself. Highly recommended.

    What amazing and excellent tour this was…. Our tour guide Olga Escribano was simply the best , so professional , passionate, detailed and dedicated. She took us through the whole life story of Picasso via the city , reviving his life and detailing the evolution of art history to modernism. She was constantly engaging us the audience with a personalised approach and was extremely patient. She went above and beyond the tour and even recommended the best things to see and do whilst still in Barcelona and was very resourceful to answer to all our questions while on the tour and when it ended. She’s definitely a 6 star and made our experience a 6 star too! Strongly recommend!

    The registration was easy to do and the truth is that I did not have high expectations, we arrived and the guide Olga greeted us and gave us the walkie-talkie that was used by us on the tour ... From here we set out on a journey following the painter Picasso who was wonderful in every aspect
