This tour was excellent. It ended up being just my friend, myself and the guide scheduled to have had two more people. Our guide's knowledge of the city and history were great and he was very personable. The wine and food was excellent, we even went back to one of the wine bars on our own after the tour. The small size of the group really allows for a special experience. I highly recommend.
Great tour! We met our guide, saw a few Tapas bars and tried lots of Tapas. The walking tour helped us get familiar with the area. We would be in Barcelona for a few more days so this was very usefull
Honestly, my wife and I have taken a variety of tours bicycling, walking, arichitectural, etc. We've enjoyed almost all, but the tours that we have consistently enjoyed the most are the wine and food sampling tours. This tour was no exception. Alejandro took 7 tourists from around the world Amsterdam, Singapore and the States through the back alleys of Barcelona's Gothic district. We stopped at some fun tapas bars that Alejandro knows and visited some out-of-the-way sites that no tourist is likely to find on his/her own. These aren't necessarily the big tourist sites - they are smaller, more obscure locations with little stories. Great wine. Great food. A fun group. And a genuinely nice guide who we really enjoyed spending time with.
The Tapas Tour was probably my 30 year old son's favorite tour. Our tour guide, Alejandro was excellent, and the tapas restaurants that we visited were top notch. We got a real flavor for local food and local establishments, plus a nice introduction to the Born and Gotic areas of Barcelona. As a result of this tour we revisited these 2 neighborhoods for further exploration and shopping, and we ate at one of our favorite Tapas Bars that Alejandra introduced us to.
This tour was well worth it. Our group of 8 thoroughly enjoyed it. We walked through the gothic quarter and El Born with three tapas restaurants. We had two or three tapas and bottles of wine at each place which were excellent and the best tapas we've ever had. The Pedron peppers were one of our favorites as was the tomato bread. Our guide Michel was very informative and friendly. I highly recommend this tour. It was a worthwhile 3 1/2 hour experience.
Driver was waiting at baggage claim with an electronic sign with our name clearly visible. He was neatly dressed in a white shirt with black pants which is what all all Books taxi drivers wear. Was very couterous and took with our luggage to the taxi. Would highly recommend using this service. 64 for private taxi for two was well worth it.
This tour was so much fun. Alejandro was extremely knowledgeable and personable. The choices of places that we went to were great picks. The food was very delicious. No complaints about the wine and cava. A very memorable evening.
It was nice to visit Pub's that were off the tourist path. We ate samples different local appetizers from each of the 4 places we stopped at as well as wine. We also got to meet the owners of the establishments and some other wonderful people from the area that were regulars. Great food, great wine ,great guide. It was so fun, We had a great time!!!
Olga was superb hostess. Bars seemed strategically cued from least inviting to most inviting, but very good value: plenty to eat and drink, plus a little cultural/historical lesson.
OUr guide Alejandro was wonderful. He gave us the right balance of history and current information about the places we went. The wines chosen were enjoyed by whole tour group. It also went a little bit off the beaten path to a part of the old city that I likely wouldn't have gone to.
The itenerary was perfect, well planned, and really provided us we a true taste of Barcelona! The guide was very informative and paced our travels well. Well worth the cost.
