This is another reason we decided to start The Barcelona Taste: a tour that lets you experience all the great food while side-stepping the crowds. The BT, Barcelona’s first complete gastro food tour built around the idea that there is no reason to just walk and talk about food when it’s possible to walk, talk, and eat it! « less

My boyfriend and I were visiting Barcelona for the first time, and were bought this tour as a birthday present. It was just the two of us and our tour guide, Joe. It was very relaxed and friendly, and offered us the chance to go to some places that we would never have found or visited on our own. We... More

Joe and Dave were excellent hosts as they introduced 8 hungry tourists from 3 different countries to the delights of the Barcelona gothic quarter and the delicious food there. Our night time food tour was a great introduction to the area and the food, wine, conversation and ambience as we visited the different restaurants could not have been better. The... More

We had a fantastic evening with jo & anna. It's wonderful to visit places that are properly off the beaten track and the food was excellent everywhere we went. Getting to indulge in done serious cheese geekery was an unexpected bonus too! Jo & Anna are great hosts, and the follow up email with other places to try is a... More

Barcelona Taste was one of the highlights of our trip to Barcelona. My husband, mother--in-law, and two boys (ages 5 & 7) had such a fun evening. We were living like the Spaniards while in Barcelona with our boys staying up late most evenings. They did great on the Barcelona Taste tour of the old city. We had so much... More

My husband and I traveled to Barcelona in October of 2013 – we were staying 2 nights before a 12 night Mediterranean cruise on the Serenade of the Seas so we had precious little time in this cool city to explore. We had read about The Barcelona Taste food tour in Sherri’s (Middle Aged Drama Queen’s) amazing review of a... More

We took this tour during our September 2013 trip to Barcelona. We had 6 people in our group and two guides. The night was a terrific combination of social interaction and new food experiences. Joe and Dave made you feel right at ease from the start and was interested in making sure you had a good time while exploring out... More

...and we took three! The reason this tour is so much fun is because of the food (of course) and the guides. Our night out felt like a party with good friends and we were a diverse group of strangers! Two young couples put up with our family (my husband and I and our sons ages 21 and almost 14).... More

If you only have one evening in Barcelona, maximize your experience with The Barcelona Taste walking tour. We wondered down back alleyways in the old part of Barcelona and in to small tapas restaurants that we would have normally walked by. Dave and Anna, our guides, are young, enthusiastic entrepreneurs who have a passion for food and Barcelona and want... More

This tour was definitely a highlight of our trip to Barcelona. If you love to eat, learn about food and enjoy good company, this tour is for you. After spending a few days in the city and doing some research about Spanish and Catalan cuisine ourselves, we felt that this tour really rounded out our experience and gave us a... More
