5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

Our Guide Elizabeth was superb. She was fun, entertaining and showed a great love of her city and its food culture. I loved the small size of the group 6 which made it easy to hear everything she said. Altogether it was not only a wonderful and thorough tour, it was great fun too and for very little money.

We thoroughly enjoyed wandering the streets of Barcelona. . . looking at beautiful shops, the market, and sampling food along the way. Our guide was friendly, interesting, and taught us a lot about Catalan culture and cuisine.

This was fantastic. It was one of the highlights of our trip. We got to see a lot of the 'real' barcelona. Learnt a lot about the gastro history. It isn't a tasting tour but you get to buy from boutique shops.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

This really takes you through the Gothic area and its the best for where to shop too. Food info is great and Carlos is fabulous. Only problem is finding place. They should tell you its down the stairs between the "info' pillars and\ or across from the bank address and tour is at only one time 9:30. So s

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2014

This was an excellent tour that took us to special food related places in Barcelona that we would not have found easily ourselves. The guide was knowledgable and interesting and we wished we had been able to do the tour at the start of our holiday as it was a great way to get to know the different areas of the city.

Claudio was a delight and handled a fairly large group with firm charm. The market is unlike any in any other city we have visited. Unlike the rambling food stalls in Paris or London, this market is in many ways ART. Not only is the food spectacular but the reverence for the food shown by the presentation is so beautiful. The shops we visited on the way to and from the market were a wonderful history of the foods
unique to Barcelona (and Catalonia). Great tour!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2013

Great tour! Informative, friendly guide who extended the time for us. The last stop at the tapa bar included beer, wine and snacks. Great.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2012

Excellent tour for people who have never been to Barcelona before. The Market is incredible. This tour is 2-21/2 hours long and you have to walk the entire time. Our elderly mother got tired, but if you can easily walk, you'll love it. The tour guide was excellent too!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2012

Definatley worth it to see the market and also get a walking tour of not just the market but of the local food shops. The guide was very informative.
