Tour guide sebastian was very nice and friendly. Met some great people from around the world. Enjoyed the market but felt the food was not great. Lots of sweets and would have liked more authentic Spanish food and restaurant exposure.

Great experience and learned a lot about the food and culture of Barcelona. The guide was excellent and went at the participants pace and did not try to rush the tour. The Tapas was very good as well as the different wine and beer sampled. I would take this tour again.

We were the most disappointed by this tour in Barcelona because of the glowing reviews by most everyone and especially after we came home and realized what we had paid for it. Our disappointment first developed as we began to have so many better and even phenomenal experiences eating tapas in Barcelona and later Mallorca over the following days. I actually called the local tour company a few days later to get the names of the restaurants that we had been to check out their reviews to see if we hit on a bad night. The info online about these restaurants oddly did not match our memories of the places where we had been! I verified myself by walking by and into one of the named ones and it was not the same. Yes, we were also introduced to and got samples from the most famous and touristy of markets in Barcelona, one of MANY chocolate shops that carries Vicens brand as though it was the original one and which no doubt has a special relationship with every local tour company which you will see come through if wait for a few minutes, and a wonderful bakery/candy store, all of which we happily stumbled back across over the following days and would not have known of but for this tour. We did have a great Sangria at the last restaurant. Our guide was fun and very accommodating. The bottom line, this tour was way overpriced, but if you have one night in Barcelona, get a decent tour of the Gothic quarter, and have nothing to compare as to tapas, might be worth it for you.

This tour was only ok. The tour had the potential to be great. It started at La Boqueria, the citys best-known food market. We liked the market so much we went back the next day on our own for lunch. The rest of the tour was not good. We went to two completely empty restaurants and went to an olive oil and candy shop which had nothing to do with tapas. Our guide talked a lot about the politics of some political prisoners in Barcelona. We even ended up at a political rally for the prisoners which was uncomfortable. The tour ended at the second restaurant where the food was not explained, we were told to just go pick three pre-made things from the counter. Everyone immediately left after the food was eaten. Not worth your money.

To keep this review short and sweet..... TAKE THIS TOUR!! It was amazing!!!!!!! You will not be disappointed! Above the wine and tapas tasting, it gives you a wonderful and veryyy helpful introduction of the different districts in Barcelona! We went all over.
I can not pin point one bad thing about this tour!! Sebastian was amazing!!!!! He really explained everything to us perfectly!! It didn't feel like we were seeing Barcelona from a tour guide, it felt like we were being shown Barcelona by a old friend! He was wonderful
From this tour my group and I was able to get all around Barcelona with no problem! Very informative and welcoming. The start location was very easy to find! We stopped at some other small locations which had amazing products!!! I would suggest this company for any of your tours in Barcelona. FYI, this company has a lot of different tours available as well!
Very respectful, professional, and punctual. And I would highly suggest Sebastian!
