My wife and I were first time visitors to magnificent Barcelona and we of course wanted to see as much as possible so we pre booked the 3.5 hour Gaudii Tour and the Picasso Museum and Gothic Quarter walking tour..both were extremely worth it, very reasonably priced and well organized… Our 2 expert guides were friendly, incredibly experienced and informed with impeccable English..and excellent access..we have no hesitation in recommending any visitor to Barcelona to book these tours and enjoy!

“Very good and value for my money” 4/5 stars

The tour I joined is a relatively small size one that makes it feel like a semi-private tour. The tour guide is good and fluent in English (comparatively better than the other tour guides I received in tours with another companies). If you would love to find out a bit more about Picasso and the Old Town in Barcelona, this morning walking tour is a good one.

The PICASSO Museum Tour yesterday, June 8, was excellent! Perfect, easy to find meeting place, well organized reception, good whisper boxes, great guide who did not walk or talk too fast as most do.
Aida was very attentive to our group, very knowledgable and presented very well. In our years of travel guides she definitely ranks as one of the very best and BGB one of the best client-responsive guide bureaus.

“Wonderful Tour with great guide” 5/5 stars

We took the Picasso Museum and Gothic Quarter tour. The guide was absolutely lovely and knowledgeable. She gave us a great experience and lots of information. Very good, maybe a little short but you can always go back revisit the places as the area is not that big

“Great way to discover Barcelona” 5/5 stars
We used Barcelona Guide Bureau on our recent trip to Barcelona. We went on two tours: the Gaudi/Sagrada Familia and the Gothic/Picasso Museum tours. Both tours were excellent. The guides were knowledgeable and pleasant. It was a great way to see the city and I would highly recommend it.

“Excellent tours with first class guides” 5/5 stars
We booked the All Barcelona Highlights Tour ahead of our trip and enjoyed it so much that we backed up the next day with the Picasso Museum and Gothic Quarter Walking Tour. Both were excellent, and well led by experienced guides Danny and Ally respectively. They were enthusiastic about the subject matter of their tours and seemed very knowledgeable. Both were able to answer rather obscure questions that I thought were well outside the tour boundaries.

We would have no hesitation in recommending BGB.

“Excellent guides” 5/5 stars
We did 2 tours– Gothic/Picasso Museum and Gaudi. The guides were terrific; Monica, who led us to the Gaudi sites, was VERY knowledgable and Oliver, who took us to the Gothic Quarter and Picasso Museum was very entertaining and knew his stuff. Highly recommended!
