Art Tours in Barcelona Review
“I loved this tour! Jimi our guide was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable and his passion for art shone through. Having lived in the city for a while it was an eye-opener to learn about the history of streets and monuments that I had passed several times. Thanks to the tour I have developed a deeper interest in Picasso and Dali artwork and recommend this to anyone wanting to learn more about their lives and influences in the city.” – Lisa Imogen Eldridge
