Reviews & Ratings



  1. This was an excellent tour that took us to special food related places in Barcelona that we would not have found easily ourselves. The guide was knowledgable and interesting and we wished we had been able to do the tour at the start of our holiday as it was a great way to get to know the different areas of the city.
  2. Claudio was a delight and handled a fairly large group with firm charm. The market is unlike any in any other city we have visited. Unlike the rambling food stalls in Paris or London, this market is in many ways ART. Not only is the food spectacular but the reverence for the food shown by the presentation is so beautiful. The shops we visited on the way to and from the market were a wonderful history of the foods unique to Barcelona (and Catalonia). Great tour!
  3. Great tour! Informative, friendly guide who extended the time for us. The last stop at the tapa bar included beer, wine and snacks. Great.
  4. Loved this tour. It sowed the best of the Gothic section of Barcelona and the guide was great. Eventhough it was raining we still had a great time.
  5. The tour guide was lovely and did his job very well in the time he had. We did not actually "visit" shops, we simply stood outside and were given a talk about some of the history of the business and its premises. I expected we would have more of an explanation about Spanish ingredients so I found that a bit lacking. I did not expect to be "tasting" a normal everyday fruit salad. I thought this tour would introduce us to things that were more specifically Spanish. The map we received to help us find the places again was not helpful at all. It showed the names of the main streets but not the little laneways and small streets where the places were actually located. That was really frustrating. I thought the tour would be more specific than it turned out to be. I would not say it is for foodies, it is more for everyday tourists to be shown around and to listen to some Catalan food history.
