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.
My husband and I had a great time on this tour! Paula did an amazing job mixing in history, shops, food, wine, and local culture into the tour! Paula was friendly, engaging, and interested in ensuring there was something for everyone in the group. I would definitely take this tour again!
More than just tapas. A great walking tour to areas I would not have found on my own! Sebastian was a great guide!
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.
Guide Nicco very affable. Great way to spend a first evening in the city and get oriented to las Ramblas and the Gothic quarter. - and of,course, the world of Tapas.
Great tour and a fantastic way to get familiar with Barcelona when you arrive. Nico, our guide, was very good. He was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. We loved his story of the traditional Catalan Christmas custom. The Flamenco show was also awesome. Loved every bit of this tour.
Fantastic tour led by Gabi, despite her suffering from a sore throat! Informative and good fun. A great start to our trip. We would highly recommend it.
Nico, our guide was excellent. Provided much more info than expected was very professional. Explained the difference between tapa restaurants and how to order. Tour of gothic area was great and he provided a lot of historical background.
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.
Great walk and food and our guide Nicko was funny and so informative.
Great way to get oriented the city! This was our first day in Barcelona and the tour followed a long day of travel but the pace was perfect. The food was amazing, our guide Ava was helpful and knowledgeable, the flamenco dance was a good way to wrap up the evening.
Good walking tour and informative guide. Good way to get acquainted with the city, feel for history and layout. Guide was excellent.

This was one of my two favorite tours for my time in Barcelona. Paloma was fantastic and fun, and it was a really great experience. We saw lots of cool places and ate lots of good food. I did it on my first night in the city so I'd have a handle on the food scene for the rest of the week. Was so glad I did! And met some really nice people. My only issue, which is extremely minor, is that the tour said it ends by a second market Santa Caterina Market. From the description, I'd planned on visiting this market when we were finished but it was closed, and I never got to go back. But really, everything was great. I would highly recommend this tour.
Paula took all of our preferences and needs into consideration while guiding us through the tapas walk tour. We had great fun and she took extra effort to circle out food places that we should try on maps and the evening ended nicely with a few pintxos.
I really enjoyed this tour. You get a quick walk through the gothic quarter and all it has to offer. I would recommend doing this tour on day 1 or 2 of your trip if you're there for multiple days. This tour will allow you to get a crash course in places to eat and you can then revisit the areas. Our tour guide was very sweet and knowledgeable and kept a good pace on the tour. We ate a lot and drank delicious sangria. I liked that the tour guide allowed us to all chat and get to know each other and also would say we could buy things or additional drinks on our own dime. I've been on other tours where the guide doesn't stop with the fun facts and you can never chat with other travelers. I've also been on tours where you feel like a hassle for ordering something additional or trying to purchase something delicious from the tasting. I really liked the set up and the vibe of this tour! You get a whole mix of education, food, wine, and good company.
We enjoyed our walking tour very much. Ava was a delight and I felt she showed us some interesting areas of the Gothic Quarter.Thanks!
Great way to start your trip. Our guide was knowledgeable and fun to hang out with.
Excellent tour with our fantastic Guide Paula. Great foodies tour which was more than we expected. A must for a first time in Barcelona!
