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

I booked this tapas tour for our group of 6 (3 adults, 2 19 yr olds, 1 13 yr old) for our 1st night in Barcelona after disembarking the Norwegian Spirit. I also first heard about it from the Middle Aged Drama Queen's review on Cruise Critic, then read all the great reviews on Trip Advisor. We easily found the... More

My tapas tour of Gracia with Anna was one of the best tourist tours I have ever done. Low key but professional she took a very small group if us (3) to some wonderful local and authentic Barcelona bars to sample how Barcelona locals eat and drink in the evening. We sampled sweet vermouth accompanied by tasty morsels in an... More

We had a great tour of the Gracia neighborhood with Anna. We visited three terrific local places for a leisurely sampling of delicious drinks and dishes we never would have found on our own. After our trip we received a personalized note with a lot of great recommendations for the rest of our stay in Barcelona. Highly recommend this experience... More

Our family reunion group visited Barcelona, Spain during July 2014 for two days pre-cruise prior to taking a Med. cruise on RCCL’s Serenade of the Seas. Three months prior to our visit we made arrangements to take a tapas tour given by The Barcelona Taste Company (URL: www.thebarcelonataste.com). We discovered it from a Cruise Critic review article written by the... More

Our family group did the Gothic tour with Jo. The tapas were so delicious and the restaurants seemed very non touristy. Jo was was so much fun and gracious. Highly recommend!

We really enjoyed our guides. Great way for us to have started our stay in Barcelona. A very knowledgable introduction to the foods you will find of Barcelonese culture. Great tips for ordering like menu del dia. Great value we were stuffed afterwards. Small intimate groups.

The Barcelona taste was amazing! Our tour was with Joe and we did a 3 hour tour of the Gracia area foods. We tried a ton of stuff that we wouldn't have ordered on our own, but all of it was amazing! You get to eat and learn about how the make the food, and which tapas and meals are... More

Great experience. Do early in your vacation because you will be able to ask your guide for other recommendations, - food or anything else. We experienced 4 locations. One for cheeses, one Catalan style tapas, one for Spanish style tapas, and one for desserts. I personally would have preferred going to 3 tapas bars and skipping the cheese one. The... More

We had a great 3 hr tour with Jo the first night we arrived in Barcelona. We really got an authentic taste of the Tapas bars in the Gottico area. We learned about vermouth, mousca and beer and ate wonderful treats. They keep the tours small - 6 guests which makes it a lovely evenng. She even gave us great... More
