It was three people on our tour plus our guide. The guide was very knowledgeable, having studied a lot of the history and culture surrounding the food we were eating and the locations visited. All the samples would have equaled the cost of the tour, if not come out ahead, so it was a true bargain to not only get the samples but also have a local lead you around the city and answer questions. Fairly easy to find location, it's a glass-front building and you might have to knock if you're there too early.
Tour guide was amazing. She tailored the tour to our interests, knew about the chocolate, knew about the city, and knew the people at the locations we visited. We not only tasted some wonderful chocolate, but we also learned a lot about Barcelona. Can't recommend it highly enough!
Very much enjoyed this tour..it was definitely worth it. It was only my daughter and I in the tour, so basically a personalized tour through El Born, El Gotic and Les Corts districts, visiting small streets, learning about history and anecdotes. Our tour guide Nico was great too! The samplings were actually a bit too much, but I got to take it with me!
Sebastian my tour guide was amazing. He was very knowledgeable and personable. This tour was a great way to enjoy great sweets and learn the history of the neighborhoods. I only wish I would have bought more chocolates.
This tour was amazing! The lady that gave the tour was super informative about sweets which was great for my pastry chef husband. My only regret was not doing the tour earlier in my stay.
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.
Great tour and great guide!!! She was very knowledgeable about all the history of the area and lots of fun to talk with!!! All the chocolates made this a very sweet deal!!! :)
The tour was awesome not only did we enjoy some sweets the guide was really knowledgeable and friendly. Learnt a lot about Barcelona. Pity we didn't do it on our first day there! Thanks
Our tour guide Encana was smart, funny, and very generous with her time! Great fun!
Fabulous time with wonderful knowledgeable guide! Definately recommend!
Sonia was amazing! What a great introduction to Barcelona. I highly recommend this tour. My 10 year old son and I had a great time. Sonia made the experience. She was warm and so knowledgeable!

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 had a small group 3 of us for our tour. Our guide, Paula, was massively enthusiastic and warm in greeting us.
She began by asking us a few questions about what we liked and what we wanted from the tour, and geared the places she'd show us around that.
I booked this tour for my first full day in Barcelona, hoping it would give me a good introduction to the city and help me find my bearings - from the starting location just off of Las Rambla we went through the Gothic Quarter then ended in El Born.
I really enjoyed the tour. Paula was fantastically knowledgable and a great, passionate person to be with for the few hours.
There wasn't as much chocolate tasting as I'd hoped by all in all, I had a good time and thought it was worth the money.
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.
Our guide (Mireia?) was very informative and pleasant. The tour was very interesting and the sweets quite delicious. We would definitely recommend it.

The guide was good but the choices could have been a bit better. The samples were not very large. We could have done our own tour. The chocolate and pastry shops are plentiful with amazing window displays.
Worth it if you have don and #39;t do any other tours (otherwise its a bit of a repeat). Cake at the end if the tour is amazing!
