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.

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.

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.

My son and I ended up being the only two on this tour. We had a wonderful time and learned a lot about Barcelona. It was nice to be greeted with a few bowls of different chocolates and cava when we arrived. Ultimately, the tour was more of a history of Barcelona than a sweet tour, but we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Sad part...no churros that week because of churros makers' vacation...:(

We were lucky enough to be the only ones on the tour. The guide was born and bred in Barcelona and knew her stuff.

The places visited were interesting, the food tasty and the pace of the tour excellent.

The directions of where to meet were a problem - info said to meet in front of the business when in reality we were to go inside the business and wait. We were the only ones on our "tour" so that was a big plus as was the guide who knew history of the Born/Spain. The tour itself, in our case, included visiting areas that had absolutely no connection to chocolate. If memory serves me, we really didn't receive a goodie bag per se; one shop gave us 4 pieces, another couple offered us samples to eat. Highlight of the chocolate part according to my grandson was the churro/chocolate/whipped cream offered at the end of the chocolate part of the tour. We both particularly enjoyed the area of the Roman Wall/columns. Since we planned on attending mass on Sunday at the Barcelona Cathedral, the guide helped us locate info on times and mentioned the dancing in the plaza afterward. As an aside that has nothing to do with chocolate tour - we attended both the Catalan mass and the Spanish mass and when we came out were delighted to find the musicians/dancers. Guide makes the difference and ours was excellent.

I thought that we were supposed to also visit the Chocolate Museum. Never did.

The tour was not as expected. Here is how it is different from the "inclusions" listed on voucher.

- Food tasting (8 samples)
Actual: A goodie bag with 3-4 pieces of chocolate were given at the second location. At another location, 2 pieces of turrón were given. At the final location, 2 pieces of our choosing (either chocolate and/or macaroon) were given.

- 1 hot chocolate with churros
Actual: 1 hot chocolate with churros was provided at the first location.

- 1 small cake
Actual: No small cake was given at any locations.

- 1 glass of cava
Actual: Given at final location

As mentioned in an earlier review, the voucher states the meeting point is an address and leaves the impression one is to wait outside. In reality, the address is the location of the tour company and folks are supposed to enter inside the building.

I would not recommend spending the money or time on this tour until the description is revised accordingly. You will not be getting the inclusions as stated in the voucher.
