Very nice tour guide and we had a friendly group. I loved having someone explain what we were eating and drinking. AND we got a nice walking tour of the Gothic Quarter. Excellent tour overall.

The trip was well organized, with a perfect combination of walking tour to Barcelona highlights and stopping for delicious tapas and other local treats. Our guide Nick was the best informative, fun, conversational, and helpful. Since there were only 4 of us signed up for the night, we felt like we hired a private guide. It pays to travel off season.

Nikko was an excellent tour guide. The food stops were very good, and more importantly Nikko provided an outstanding commentary on the places we walked through in Barcelona. We received information that would not have been readily available elsewhere. He also gently kept us moving along. A well enjoyed experience.

The best tour of my vacation. Our guide was so well versed on not only the food but also the culture and history of this wonderful city. Worth every penny.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

Fun experience. We came away with an understanding of how the Portuguese people socialize and enjoy Tapas at several bars in an evening. He also entertained us with the story of the Shitting Log which is REALLY a Christmas tradition there... hysterical.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015
