We had a wonderful evening with our guide, Laura. She was friendly, funny, and knowledgeable. The four restaurants we visited were different from one another so we experienced a great variety of food and drinks. You will certainly have plenty to eat on this tour! For drinks, we had vermouth, cava, cider, and wine. Each restaurant paired a specific drink with special foods for an awesome tasting experience. We enjoyed visiting different parts of Barcelona and learning about the culture from Laura along the way. We highly recommend this tour for a different perspective on food and drink in Barcelona. It really was a wonderful evening.
Apart from the first stop where we had really bad cider this was really great. We had a good laugh and tasted lots of different tasty foods and wine.
Had a great time on this walking tour. Alex was a great tour guide and she introduced us to a wide variety of food and drinks. Only two of the four stops served us wine, but the other two stops exposed the group to local drinks and customs that fit the old town. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who enjoys food and drinks and is looking for an experience of local old town Barcelona.
Alex did a wonderful job. The food, information, and company was great. This will be a highlight of my trip to Barcelona.
The food and wine were amazing! Eli was an excellent tour guide, and at the end she gave us great recommendations for the rest of our stay in Barcelona!
Our tour guide was awesome and very knowledgeable. She was very thorough and pleasant. Appearance good
We really enjoyed our tour and Francesc! Moved at a fast pace with lots of delicious tapas and wine. We went to 4 different places and Francesc gave us recommendations on things to do and places to eat while in Barcelona!
Eli is the absolute BEST!!! You will fall in love with this city, the food, and the drinks. This is a MUST do.
This was such a great tour! we had incredible platters of food at each place that was enough to make you feel like you had a full course meal by the end. In no way was it scarce with the amount of people in the tour, which wasn't even that much, maybe 10 people. It was very nice too because you actually got to know the others on the tour, and make friends. The drinks were absolutely amazing too, and not just restricted to wine!! so if you dont absolutely love wine no worries!! you will have plenty of other things to drink!! Overall we went to places that were in plane sight but would never think to go in so im so happy we did this tour to show us, Also i could never forget our tour guide, Elie was literally the best tour guide we had on the trip. She was so cute and friendly and really made you feel like she was your friend. She was also so informative since she grew up right in the area. overall a 10/10 incredible.
My family and I had a wonderful experience with this tour group! It was a great introduction to Barcelona that we took advantage of our first day here. The groups were the right size and our tour leader Laura was amazing. She was very knowledgable, friendly and went beyond the call of duty to make everyone feel like they were having a truly unique experience. My 11 and 14 year old kids had a blast and Laura made sure they felt included every step of the way. We visited some great places and had absolutely delicious tapas and wine. The extra flamenco show at the end of tour was the cherry on top of a great experience. I would do this again without hesitation.
This tour proved to be a great introduction to local food and wines in Barcelona. Our guide, Pau, also treated us to a walking tour and history of the fascinating Gotica area in the old city. Highly recommended.
Good variety of both wine and Tapas. Guide was knowledgeable and friendly. Really enjoyable experience.
Tour guide was amazing. This was definitely one of our best tours. Great way to see the city, try foods that we typically would not order, and visit interesting tapas bars that we would not have visited on our own.
Great tour with a lot of info about the history of Barcelona - the old and the current! The tastings were well thought out, with each stop being an emphasis on a different aspect of the tapas menu (meat, seafood, cheese, olives). Lots of food to share amongst the group, you will not go hungry. Our guide was awesome - I am sorry I cannot remember her name- and she was very knowledgeable about both the history of the gothic quarter and the food we were sampling. She also knew a lot of the back story of the restaurants and the families running them. 5 stars - absolutely worth it!
It was a wonderful tour. Our guide, Tani, was extremely personable and very well versed with regards to the places she took us and the tapas and wine served at each place. The variety of tapas gave us a taste of the most popular tapas. The wines were all local, typical wines. The places selected were prepared for us upon our arrival and they had a very authentic feel. The walking tour also included some historical background of different places which was very nice. The timing was good because we started at 5:30 and ended around 8:30 while it was still light outside. We highly recommend this tour.
This was a great tour and great way to kick off our trip to Barcelona! The menu was catered to our dietary restrictions and was wonderful.
This was a great way to start out our trip in Barcelona. Eli was a great guide. We met nice people, enjoyed food we would not have thought to order and learned a lot about Barcelona and the culture!
This small group walking tour is a great way to experience the heart beat of Barcelona and it's l local cuisines. The small numbers give the tour an intimacy and allows the guide to give you historical and cultural facts that bring the tour alive. We had a great guide in Eli, who I would highly recommend. Her knowledge of and passion of the city and specifically, the tour locale made this an unforgettable experience.
What a great night! Eli was fantastic. She got the whole group to warm up and took us to 4 little places with great food and wine. There was plenty to eat and drink and lots of fun. The group ended up going out together afterwards. Eli gave us further recommendations which proved helpful. Great tour!
Do this tour early in your stay. It’s a good introduction to Barcelona drinks and Tapas. The guide was friendly and informative.
We did this our first night in Barcelona for our Honeymoon and it was amazing! The guide was insightful, gave great history of the city and brought us to really great tapas restaurants. Our group was mixed from all over and we all bonded over good food and good drinks. Highly recommend!
