Great guided tour. The Born district tour was a smaller part of the tour, but it was perfect for us because we were mostly interested in the Picasso Museum. Our tour guide, Marc, was very knowledgeable, and his passion for the artwork was evident. He was responsive to our questions and spent a lot of time answering them.
