Meet your guide at the Picasso Museum in the Gothic Quarter for a guided tour of the permanent collection. Skip the line and go straight into the museum.

Walk through the exhibit and see how a precocious young painter establishes himself as the leading artistic force of the 20th century. Admire sketches and oil paintings from his early years, including paintings by his family, such as the Portrait of Tía Pepa, done in Málaga in 1896. See paintings from the artist's first visit to Paris. See the Woman in the Hood, a major work from Picasso's Blue Period. Go ahead and watch as the artist ages to maturity, creating his cubist works, still lifes, and ceramic pieces.

Very interesting and the guide pointed out things you wouldn’t notice if you did the tour by yourself. I would make the guide however look more obvious as I walked past like 3 times trying to find them, maybe carry a yellow umbrella or something to make the meeting point even more obvious.

Our guide was educated (for the most part) engaging and interesting to listen to. She was delightful and at the same time we’ll informed. The reason I hesitate is she was asked if any f Picasso’s children “did” anything. She wasn’t sure. Pabloma Piacasso, whine she spoke of is a fashion designer and had designed jewelry for Tiffani’s. She should know that. I was too shy to say.

Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and talked us through the history and background to the paintings. She certainly enlightened us all about Picaso's development as a painter and his going through different stages of his artistic and personal career. Thank you Valentina.

The tour was really good. It was not necessary the skip the line since there was no line at all, but the guide took care of everything. Olga Escribano was our guide and she arrived on time, she explained Picasso's life and every important piece of art, not only from the critics perspective but also taught us how to read art and create our own vision.

Meeting point is at Palau Dalamasas, where there are a lot of signs for a flamenco show; plus, the lack of Picasso Museum tour meet-up sign made us and others question if we were in the right place. Started late and group was in excess of the expected 15 (small group). Guide and information she shared was 5 stars however, and the headsets allowed us to hear the guide clearly even from a distance.

I have never been a big fan of Picasso but the tour and guide was very interesting and I enjoyed it. Prior to the tour, it was quite simple to find the tour guide. I say this because finding the meeting point for many tours is like playing a game of hide and seek.

The guide was nice and informative. After the tour I wanted to go back and look at the art closer but wanted to use the restroom first. I was told the bathroom was downstairs but afterwards I could not go back into the museum. I was told that I didn’t get a ticket with my booking. It was really not fair.

I enjoyed learning about the progression of Piscasso’s work and how his personal circumstances influenced the way he designed his artwork. The tour was a great highlight of the major aspects of the museum although it was a bit hard to hear at times due to the other tours happening at the same time. Our guide, Olga, did her best and I did appreciate that our tour group was slit into two to reduce the overall size of the group.

Olga was our tour guide. We have traveled all over the world and we believe we are very experienced travelers, and simply put Olga was the best guide we have ever had. She is very intelligent, well educated but also so personable and funny. We learned so much about Picasso and feel we understand him and his art so much better and with a very different perspective. We could not recommend her more highly. If you can select her do it, you will be thrilled!
