We took this tour on the first day we arrived. Great way to get an introduction to the city and try different foods. The guide made suggestions on other places to try and venture out to. Highly recommend to take this tour on your first days there.

Great experience! We met wonderful people, shared wine and tapas and history of the local area. Our guide was fun and super full of interesting facts about the food and local markets that we would never have discovered or experienced by ourselves. Well worth it.

Thanks to our lovely guide, Paula, the tour was worth every second of the three hours we spent that evening. Barcelona is a city to explore by walking and we walked quite a lot including the Ramblas for an insightful trip to the open market, La Boqueria, to the historic area of Gotic Quarter and bustling El Raval. We got local tips, insights into the local food, drinks, and got to enjoy some of the most delicious Tapas, Pintxos and lovely wine to accompany that. Highly recommended for all first-time Barcelona visitors and also worth great value for money.

This was our first tour on arriving into Barcelona from Melbourne and was a fabulous introduction into the cuisine and the area, we enjoyed some great tapas and sangria and our tour leader was a gorgeous man with an abundance of knowledge! Thank you for a great night, and meeting other couples from far and abroad was awesome!

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.
