The Street Art Tour with Gerardo was a very enjoyable and educational experience for us! We brought our dachshund along and he was also quite happy with the tour. The walk is quite manageable for little dogs. Would definitely recommend it for anyone looking to learn more about the local culture and check out some great street art. After this tour, we started noticing a lot more of it around the city.

Our guide was great. The collection at the museum is exactly what we wanted to see. Picasso, Dali, Miro, Man Ray, etc.
