  • I am a huge Picasso fan. You want to see Guernica you go here. Well worth it. It is spectacular. The museum has an old and new part. The old was a former hospital. Some great paintings in this place- Iot was also a better English Spanish split on the explanation- liked it a lot.

  • This tour did not meet my expectations. We spent a great deal of time moving our large group through the museum up and down several elevators and relatively little time looking at the art. Our tour guide, Jose, just seemed to be going through the motions. He hadn't made much effort to figure out how to translate what he wanted to say about the art into English, or to present a coherent perspective on the different art movements represented in the Reina Sofia. While he seemed knowledgeable about art from a certain perspective, he didn't seem to understand how to engage the group or to convey excitement or enthusiasm about Dali, Picasso, etc. Rather than exciting my kids about art, I think it turned them off art and museums.

  • We had the most wonderful guide, Belén, who took us on a tour along Cubism and Surrealism, talking fluently and with a good sense of humour in-between paintings.

  • Great guided tour to see most important pieces and related history

  • This place is just amazing. We had a chance to see all Picasso's paintings very well explained by out tour guide. The guide has a small group and spoke very clear in both English and Spanish. Excellent experience and highly recommended.
