Paula was amazing. Her knowledge of the foods of Barcelona was outstanding. This is one of the best tours we have ever taken.

Our tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly and our group from USA and Australia was super. We saw lots of sights, heard interesting stories and had enough time to rest while drinking wine and sampling tapas. Maybe a strange note but our guide also guided us to picking up a Ramblamap Barcelona. Oh my! A readable map of street names and Metro stops for quite a large area of Barcelona. The map you get from the Tourist agency is impossible to read! This was a life-saver many times. And there is also a detailed map of La Rambla itself.

The first tour of our visit and it proved to be one of the best. We sampled a variety of tapas and pica pica each explained by Paula. This was combined with an informative guided tour of parts of the city.

Our tour guide was very informative and insightful on dining and shopping within Las Rambla and the surrounding areas. I went back to some of the places we visited that evening to explore further and shop on my own.
