Small-group tour limited to 10 people.

Don't book this if you're a vegetarian. I know, that sounds crazy, given that the actual title of this tour is Barcelona Vegetarian Tapas Walking Tour, but hear me out. For one thing, there is very little eating on this tour. We expected to walk around Barcelona, stopping here and there for tapas. We stopped at one place for basically candy, and then did not eat until an hour and 45 minutes into the tour. We had arrived off a cruise ship that morning, so we had eaten breakfast at 7am. We purposefully didn't eat during our free time in the morning, which meant that by the time we started eating - 12:45 - we were ravenous. That there was more touring of Barcelona than there was discussion of or eating food is a big problem for a tapas tour. Secondly, not only were not even the majority of the tapas vegetarian, our tour guide took time in the main market to explain to us all the different charcuteries and cuts of pork, and to walk us past booths full of hanging pigs legs and cabinets of rabbits and pheasants, still covered in fur, waiting to be slaughtered. I totally get that you can't avoid these things in public areas, especially in a fresh food market. However, there is absolutely NO REASON a tour guide for a tour of VEGETARIAN tapas should be taking ANY time to show us meat or discuss how it is raised. None. The restaurant where we finally ate was lovely, the staff were great, but we all expected that all of the tapas were vegetarian. Our guide had to point out which items were vegetarian and which were not. This is a big problem for a vegetarian tapas tour. Our group was a group of six, and actually only one of us was vegetarian, which our tour guide found out. However, I don't understand why he would be talking about pork and meat on a vegetarian tour. Isn't there a script? Did he deviate that much just for us, or do all of his tours talk about pork and meat? Those of us were were not vegetarians were fully on board with a 100 vegetarian experience. I was annoyed, but our vegetarian was appalled, and horrified by what we saw in the market. We didn't ask for a change to the tour to include meat, or complain in any way about being on a vegetarian tour. Our guide was friendly and pleasant, but this didn't feel like a labor of love for him. We had done a four-hour food tour in Rome a week and a half before, and our guide there was insanely passionate. Her enthusiasm for Italian food and why they eat what they eat and when they eat was infectious. With our guide in Barcelona, this felt like just a job. He was knowledgeable, but not really all that enthusiastic about what we were doing. The one very positive thing I can say about our guide was that he calibrated his pace to the slowest member of our group, my 80-year-old father. For that I will be eternally grateful.
