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.
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
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!
Great tour! Informative, friendly guide who extended the time for us. The last stop at the tapa bar included beer, wine and snacks. Great.
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!
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.
Really enjoyed our visit to the markets and various gourmet shops. We revisited some of them when the tour ended, didn't need dinner that night. Although using the head sets felt silly, it was a good thing because other wise you would have no idea what is being said as it was quite a large group, visiting very busy places.
Oliver was fantastic. He was fun, informative, high energy and adorable. We had a wonderful culinary tour of Barcelona. I can highly recommend this tour and Oliver to everyone and I will!
We took a tour of the city and markets. Our guide was very funny and informative. Very happy we did this.
Fantastic! Would have loved a few more tasty treats, but really enjoyed this walking tour!! Thanks so much!
Note: Electronic copy of voucher was NOT sufficient to check in. Voucher needed to be printed before we could join the group.
Wonderful tour! We did a walking tour in the morning and did the red line hop on hop off tour in the afternoon

This was my most favorite tour of all! The headsets provided for the walking tour was genius - we could hear everything that Oliver discussed regarding the city of Barcelona and the gourmet foods that are available. It was also an excellent way to familiarize myself with the various sections of Barcelona allowing me to come back later for purchases.
Excellent tour - we really enjoyed. We had an outstanding tour leader.
Extremely interesting. We visited places we would never have found on our own and learned so much from our guide. It was a trip we would highly recommend.
We had a great guide. Interesting sites. It was informative with good overview of Barcelona.

This tour was really great in that it took us by shops that specialized in Spanish goodies! Cookies, nuts, truffles, coffee and two markets! The guide was great, and the tour also went into the Gothic Quarter, which was really interesting. Highly recommend this tour for any foodie!
We had a terrific local guide. The Boqueria market is unlike anything I had ever seen. It was beautiful and appealed to all of the senses. We didn't actually go into most of the stops. It would be great to be given a map of the stops so you could return with more time. I would have liked to go back to some of them, but I couldn't find them.
I thoroughly enjoyed the experience, the guide was knowledgeable, spoke good English and was able to give great tips on local cuisine.
