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!

Paula was great! We had an amazing time! Great way to start off our trip and get a feel for the area!
I can definitely recommend this wonderful tour! It was a pleasure!
This was a great tour. Paula was super friendly, knowledgable and fun. We only went to two tapas places and the food was great at both places!
Our guide, Paula, was great! The food, wine, and history she introduced us to was above and beyond what we expected! Must do! And ask for Paula!
Paola was great, very engaging and knowledgeable, and the food was amazing!
Paula was an amazing tour guide who engaged and provided us with insight and amazing food. Highly recommend
Do this tour at the beginning of your vacation. It was a great intro to Barcelona!
Great tour for your first night in Barcelona. Included a stroll through the areas surrounding La Rambla, including the market, candy stores where we received free samples!, historical landmarks and other points of interest. Our tour included one stop where we tasted several tapas and enjoyed a glass of wine. The guide was very knowledgeable and welcoming. To end the night, we enjoyed an amazing flamenco performance at Palau Dalmases. The dancers and musicians were incredible. It was the highlight of the tour for sure. We highly recommend the upgraded tour with the flamenco show.
We are so glad that we chose this tour! We spent several hours walking around Barcelona, learning many historical/cultural facts, and stopping for food and drink along the way. Our guide was Paula, and she was wonderful - very knowledgeable and engaging. Also, she was very considerate of our group's desires and limitations. She began the tour by asking what we were most interested in seeing and learning about, and tailored the tour to our personal preferences. Also, our family includes a couple of people who can't walk very quickly, and she regularly checked on them to be sure no one was being pushed to walk too far or too fast. We started with a discussion and snacks at the tour group's office, then visited the market, a sweets shop, a tapas bar, and a pinxos bar. All of the food was incredible, and, even as repeat Barcelona visitors and foodies, we learned so much. Highly recommended!
Sebastian was amazing. The food was delicious. It is a great way to explore the local cuisine and get a history.
This was a fabulous introduction to Barcelona. We did this on our first evening in the city and it was a great start to our break. Fantastic guide, small intimate group, great pace, great value.
Fantastic! Great walking tour that provided a nice overview of Barcelona and the tapas were delicious.
Tour guide was fantastic! Took us to try quite a few different tapas and Pistos! Very informative on the history of Barcelona and its tradItions! A lot of tapas were served; did not even eat dinner that night!
We booked the tour for our first evening in Barcelona, and we were so glad we did. We were fortunate to have a wonderful energetic and knowledgable guide, Paula, who shared with us history of the area, as well as the history of the samples of delicious tapas and wine. She also gave us a good feel for some really great spots to check out during our stay in the city. Paula and #39;s enthusiasm kept us engaged despite our full day of traveling. We recommend this tour to any one visiting Barcelona for the first time. If possible request Paula as your guide, she was awesome and really made our first might a memorable one!
This was the last tour we took on our three week European vacation, and it was by far the best. Our guide was Nico, and we really enjoyed the entire tour. His knowledge of Barcelona even though he did not grow up there and the customs and traditions kept us interested and engaged. The two tapas restaurants he took us to had to be the best in town. We were also fortunate enough to sample some delicious candy and gelato. We would not only recommend this tour, but will take it again the next time we are in Barcelona. Thank you Nico!
Excellent tour. Guide was knowledgeable and friendly would recommend tour to others.
