5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2012

This was a great tour. We had a great guide who showed us so much more than just chocolate shops. We learned so much about the history of the area and saw many sites that we would never have known about through normal travel means. Since the guide was from Barcelona, she knew so much about the city.

4 star rating: Recommended October 2014

We enjoyed our Chocolate and Sweets tour in Barcelona. Our guide showed us some traditional sweets as well as the chocolate goodies we had expected. Our guide also told us some interesting information about the city as we walked around. It was a great way to see the city and get an idea of the city through its food.
