On our 2nd evening in Barcelona, we signed up for this food tour. The tour did not disappoint. Our tour guide was informative and entertaining. He gave us historical perspective to all the areas that we toured, plus an overview of the political situation in Catalonia There was a big protest in the city on Sunday to support the embattled president-in-exile of Catalonia. But the main purpose of the tour was food and wine, and we had plenty to sample. We started with a glass of local Cava at the tour headquarters near Las Ramblas. Then we went to the La Boqueria market, where we had samples of the famous Iberian ham and local cheeses. Unfortunately, it was a Sunday, and the fish market stalls were almost all empty. We stopped for samples of nougat candy at Torons Vincens, also near Las Ramblas. The tour featured two stops at tapas restaurants. The first was a more traditional tapas restaurant, where we were served multiple tapas. The second, and last stop was at a more contemporary tapas shop, where we were able to go up to the counter and select three different tapas, out of a large selection. We were served wine or alternate beverages at both restaurants, so we had plenty to eat and drink. In Hawaii, we have our own version of tapas, called pupus. Tapas are totally different because they feature local ingredients, with much more emphasis on local vegetables, cheeses, and seafood. It was a great introduction to eating in Barcelona, and our guide Marc was excellent. Highly recommended.

OMG!! What a way to start a holiday! Met up at the Companys office and met our guide David, over a glass of Cava! Then we were OFF!
We didnt just taste Tapas and wine, but were introduced to a number of areas in the city, as David gave us a fantastic insight into the history of the Catalonian people. We tasted cheeses, ham, wine, tapas at 2 different restaurants, olive oil, nuts and that is just to name a few. We heard so many interesting things and stories, whilst wandering the little laneways, as David has a huge interest in history and happily passed all this info on. I had a fantastic time and HIGHLY RECOMMEND this tour and guide. Many thanks. Di

This was our first tour of the trip. Gave us a great overview of Tapas and how the dining scene works in Barcelona. Our tour guide, Mark, was very informative and entertaining. We enjoyed hearing some history of Barcelona/Spain and about eating/drinking in Spain. We loved the food and wine that we had on the tour. We learned enough about the dining scene to be comfortable going to Tapas bars all on our own. It was very empowering to just walk into a bar and get our tapas and drinks with confidence. Thanks for a great tour!

Fun tour- we took this on our first day in Barcelona to get the low down on what to expect when it came to tapas and learn the basics layout of the area. Fun tour- lots to eat and drink. Xavi was a great tour guide.

I highly highly recommend this tour when first arriving to Barcelona! It was my first time here and decided to do this the day after arriving and had the best time. Our guide was Marco and he was the perfect guide to take you through all the cutest neighborhoods of Barcelona. Marco was also very knowledgeable of the history that lives in this beautiful city so it made the tour that more insightful and special to be in all of the locations. He gave us suggestions on the best restaurants for churros, tapas and wine bars! which i tried after the tour and were sooooooo delicious, the best I tried! After our tour was over he was willing to still send us information and took the time to ensure we get the best experience during our stay here, it really made the tour special. You will also find yourself meeting all kinds of people from all walks of life and in those three hours you're sure to make friends by the end of it : I solo traveled so i definitely recommend this for anyone who's on their own - however, it also works for couples and everyone actually! Amazing, ill be back Barcelona! 3

Perfect afternoon/evening to feast, drink and mingle with instant-friends. Our guide Nico offered much more than delightful tapas and drinks cava, sangria, vino. His tour was a moving 8-course tasting menu sprinkled with morsels of rich history of the El Born and Gothic quarters. We began at the elegant Food Wine Tour company headquarters for introductions and cava, Spanish champaign. He steered us to more than half a dozen eateries, boqueria food stalls and restaurants where we sat down for mini meals. Beyond tapas and jamon, we sampled esoteric chocolate and olive oil at specialty shops that are go-to stores for gifts. 3-4 hours went by fast because it was a lot of fun and intimate.

He also shares not in guide book customs, some seeming quite outlandish. Ask him about the Barcelona drink toast that has a salacious double meaning, as well as the custom where children beat a log senseless during Christmas.
