Sofia Estrela, an amazing guide, an engaging walking partner for the four of us in the tour, and a highly qualified person to share with us about Chocolate and food in Barcelona! On the first morning we arrived, weary from travel, our time with her energized us for the the remaining 3 days we visited Barcelona. I highly recommend this tour not only to chocolate fanatics but to anyone interested in gastronomical joy!!

This was a fantastic tour, not easy for a family of 2 parents and four kids 9 - 14! Nico our tour guide tailored our tour to what we had or hadn't already seen, he was both informative and interesting, he was good with the kids and really good company. he took us to all different kinds of shops, not just sweet shops, and educated us on the traditions around nougat, churros and the most beautifully made small cakes, and we had the best time, despite the rain! i can't recommend this tour highly enough!

Nicolas, my guide, was fabulous! We went to many chocolate places, sampled chocolates at each place, and I bought goodies to take home with me!

This was a great little tour. Traditional churros, not sweet at all, beautiful chocolate high quality, lovely nougat. Great cava and pastry of choice at end. Bubos chicolate cake. Google it.
