Picasso was caught by the creative and vital outbreak of youth in Barcelona. He had arrived in 1895, with 13 years, and it was here that he went out on his firsts binges with friends – the first to recognize his talent and discover the pleasures that were hidden in the brothels.

Contraté el tour con mis amigas. Nos encanta el arte moderno y queríamos conocer la historia de Picasso a fondo. El guía nos explicó cosas que no aparecen en los libros y nos encantó ver que Barcelona no ha cambiado tanto en todo este tiempo. Picasso vive en las calles!

FAQ about the private tour  Picasso y Barcelona

How can I customize the experience?

Our private tours are 100% customizable, so if you want to change any of the stops to add another or delete one to reduce the duration, contact us here with your request and we will answer you with the steps to follow to complete the reservation.

If you like the tour as it is (the pick-up point and the end point are not a problem: we go for you to your hotel, to the airport, the port, somewhere in the city … wherever you tell us), continue the purchase process and we will confirm you instantly.

Why do we use taxi instead of private vehicle?

The entire tour takes place in the streets of the Gothic Quarter and the Born. They are narrow streets, of the center of Barcelona and in many, the circulation of vehicles is not allowed. Hire 4 hours of a vehicle when you are going to use it seems an unnecessary expense. So we have thought that it is better for you to take a taxi together from wherever you tell us and finish the tour in the center so you can continue enjoying your day of tourism.

You will not have to worry about anything. The guide will be with you at all times to book the taxi and give you directions. If you want, at the end of the tour, you can help you stop another taxi and give the directions to get where you want.

And if you prefer a vehicle available, no problem. Contact us and we will customize the tour to your liking.

Are the 4 hours by car?

No: in this tour, we will only use the taxi to get to the center of Barcelona. Once there, the route we propose is walking through pedestrian streets. As all the sites we visited are close to many others we have decided that it made no sense to offer you an exclusive car during the entire tour because you were not going to take advantage of it.
