SO much fun, met some great people. The start of the tour is at the tours studio, very nice, meet the staff and who is going on your tour and you get a drink and some meats/cheese before you even start the tour. All the locations were delicious foods. Definitely do this tour!

Nico was great! Not only did we taste amazing Tapas, drinks and sweets he was a wealth of knowledge. He took us through La Boqueria and took us to the best products. We went through the gothic area, which was at first intimidating to me and my husband, but Nico took us down streets with restaurants and shops and it quickly became one of our favorite places. I would recommend booking the tour on the first or second day you arrive because he really was super informative of the area.

This was a truly extraordinary walking and tapas tour. The tapas and wine were absolutely delicious. I also really enjoyed walking to the different areas of the city and learning about them. I especially liked the visit to the old Jewish quarter and the tapas and wine at the restaurant there. I highly recommend this tour!

Gabby was our guide and she was great! Our group were made up of Americans and a couple from Melbourne and we were just chatting it up at the meeting location. We can see Gabby's passion and excitement in showing us around. My friend and I signed up for the flamenco show while the rest of the group continued onto a pintxos bar. Honestly though, the show was SO WORTH IT. Gabby gave us some recommendations for pintxos bars on our way to the show so we still had our own evening of food afterwards. Would recommend!

This tour was an excellent value and a great introduction to Catalan cuisine. I recommend you do this tour at the start of your time in Barcelona- this helped us learn what food to order and other things to look for throughout the rest of our trip. Make sure to add on the Flamenco show as well- the dancers and music were excellent and very passionate, and the beautiful venue is in a location you would easily miss if you didn't know it was there.
