We love doing food tours when we travel. This was a great one. Adrian was very knowledgeable and the food was delicious a plentiful. Highly recommend
A good sample and overview of Spanish tapas
Melanie_Z, Feb 2023
Overall the tour provides a good exposure to different types of authentic Spanish tapas. We went to were the locals go, so we got to experience the real deal. We visited 4 places, each in their own unique way and the food was good. Favorite was the 1st one were we got to try the traditional tapas with Jamon Serrano, manchego cheese and sangria and the others we tried patatas bravas, pan con tomate, sardines, sausage and wine! It had a good variety and we learned a bit of history along the way. The 3rd stop was Argentinian and I did not care for it much, other than for the wine and the eggplant sample. A good tour for a high level overview to Spanish tapas!
Good Company and Good Food
Nancy_C, Feb 2023
Food is best when it's enjoyed in the company of those who appreciate the pleasure of simple, quality food. Adrian guided us to four tapas bars off the beaten tourist path and showed us how to enjoy fresh Catalan food. It was a pleasure to be able to learn about the differences in Iberian ham and how to enjoy a meal of ham, cheese, and Cava. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
You won't be sorry!
Jessica_S, Jan 2023
Adrian was fantastic. He knew his stuff and had the reservations for each stop ready to go. We walked in and drinks and food were ready in a matter of minutes. Food was amazing!! There is so much and such a variety. Drinks were great sizes... Adrian even emailed after tour places to visit if we had time to extend our experience. Highly recommend this tour!!
What a treat!
VikiElliotKing, Dec 2022
This was a fantastic experience with our wonderful guide Adrian. Our hope was that we would experience Barcelona tapas like the locals and our expectations were exceeded. Fantastic food, and plenty of it, authentic locations complemented by an interesting introduction to the history of the areas we visited. Not to mention the comprehensive food and bar recommendations Adrian kindly sent us afterwards. Would highly recommend.
Warmelly Recommended tour!
Eric_C, Dec 2022
Adrian (our guide) was great. He have a broad knowledge of Barcelona and its secret local bars and restaurants.. We had a great time.. Warmelly recommend of this tour with him!
gina_t, Nov 2022
I had originally booked my tour on Thursday. Adrian reached out to let me know I was the only one that signed up for that day. He offered to move me to Friday which turned out to be much more fun. The food and drinks were plentiful and tasty, more than what we could finish. The sights were interesting, always nice to include a bit of history to understand the culture!
Terrible tour!
LeslieBrumley, Oct 2022
Very bad experience. Too many people on this tour. Adrian walked too fast and those of us in the back couldn't hear him. We got lost walking down the narrow streets and had to walk single file at times. Adrian seemed rushed and not very pleasant. We told him that our friend had asthma and couldn't walk fast. He didn't seem to care. Tapas were just okay and Adrian's history of the Gothic quarter (when we could hear him) was not great. There was a smoker in our group of 12 and Adrian didn't ask her to not smoke. We had to move away from the cigarette smoke. Overall, the tour was very disappointing and not worth the money. We don't recommend this tour!
Response from Host, Oct 2022
Oh, Karen Karen Karen! Where do I begin first off everybody was at the location as requested 10 minutes before the tour started. we have a strict time schedule to maintain and it was a holiday to boot. We have reservations to maintain that being said. You finally joined us at 5:24 approximately 35 minutes after the requested meeting time you met us at the first location in a foul mood at that point I said I did not want you on the tour and that you would receive a full refund that was within 30 seconds of you arriving to our first location your energy was not the most pleasant but you decided to stay. I should have insisted that you leave but that is my fault. you mentioned that your friend had trouble walking to the meeting location you might have wanted to crack open your purse and pay for a taxi. if you knew your friend had trouble walking to the meeting location you should have made adjustments in your schedule to not hold up the rest of the group believe it or not the world does not revolve around you, Karen!!!! all the other guests were able to make it 10 minutes before the start time as requested but you must be really special just the rules don't apply to you. regarding your friend and not being able to walk. you took this same tour last year and apparently you enjoyed it enough to book it again with your friends completely understand that but if you knew your friends could not walk well, what on Earth were you thinking of going on a walking tour was a good idea in the first place? but again I guess it's all about you. in regard to another guest smoking in public outside oh my God I have nothing to say about that but just this stay at your home in your little world and do the world a favor stay in your own little bubble. regarding walking fast I and the other group members walk at a normal pace and we kept stopping to let you catch up I did not walk fast I just walk normally as so did the other eight members of the group. Bye KAREN!!!! PS, I can’t believe I had to waste my time writing this reply
Great tour
Lurana_C, Oct 2022
It was a very good. Tour Took to places you would probably not have gone to yourself. Knowledgeable and fun.
Adrian was the best!
Elda_M, Oct 2022
I highly recommend this tour with Adrian! We had a great experience learning about the history of Barcelona, and trying tapas and wine at small, unique bars. Even better was the list of recommendations that we got from Adrian after the tour, which we used throughout our trip. We even came back to one of the tapas bar from the tour on our last day because we enjoyed it so much!
Great tour!
Suzanne_H, Sep 2022
Tour was great, food was great, company was great. This was our first ever food tour, so we weren’t really sure what to expect. By the end we all had full bellies and quite a few laughs with new friends. We are history buffs, and learning about the city was very enjoyable. We would highly recommend this tour and our guide, Adrian.
More than Tapas - A bite of History Too
Nancysch101, Aug 2022
Adrian was an excellent guide sharing both history and food lore during our Tapas tour. We had a wonderful time sampling different tapas from ham, cheese and Sangria to patas bravas and fried anchovies. Each restaurant had its charm and Adrian taught us about Catalyan culture. I highly recommend this tour - it was perfect for our family with older teenagers.
Loved it!
Francesca_F, Jul 2022

richard_h, Jun 2022
Great guide. Excellent tapas and informative tour of the history of Barcelona. It was great to walk directly into crowded Tapas and be treated to a table and the knowledge of what to eat and drink
Highly recommend
Kenneth_H, Jun 2022
If you want to sample delicious Tapas from family owned businesses that have been in business for many years, this is the tour for you. Our guide Adrian was extremely knowledgeable and attentive. The food was fantastic and while we were expecting “samples”, we felt like we had an entire meal.
Great tour of Barcelona
Nicola_G, May 2022
Adrian was a fun and informative tour guide and took us to a few places we would normally walk past as the menus are impossible to figure out as we dont know any Catalan Spanish. He showed us around the oldest parts of Barcelona which are a web of tiny streets that host some cool bars, shops and restaurants. So easy to get lost in there though. The tapas plentiful as was the wine and beer.
