The "walkabout" with Jo was the best money we spent in Barcelona. Sure, its a service for a fee but five minutes into our crawl, it felt more like a night out with an old friend, Jo, who lived & breathed Barcelona and loved to share her favorite inner-city haunts well away from the busy tourist track. Having spent the... More

Our guide was Tito and he was cool. We went to 4 small local establishments. The first was a great cheese shop the only problem was the samples we were given were tiny. The shop owner was a doll but they should have much larger portions. The second place we had peppers, blood sausage a few other tasters and we... More

The tapas tour is a nice experience. Jo introduced the guest by let them tell something about them self at the first round of tapas. She is a really good moderator between the different people in the group. She never takes more than 6 people in a tour, so she can explain everything what you want to know about the... More

My wife and I spent our honeymoon in Barcelona in October and, on the recommendation of a friend in the States, tried out the Gótico tour on our second evening. Anna was a fantastic guide, and it was so nice to have such a personal introduction to the city and some of its best eateries. We liked it so much... More

The Barcelona Taste is a must for visitors to Barcelona who want to taste authentic Catalan food in hidden-away little restaurants that you would never find on your own. Our guide, Johanna Marvel, was indeed a marvel, speaking fluent Catalan(different than Spanish), ordering us the most amazing assortment of tapas we have ever eaten. We took three tours with B...

For our first evening in Barcelona, my husband and I decided to do a tapas tour and booked with Barcelona Taste, and we're very glad that we did. We had such a fun time with our guide Jo, and every one of the 4 tasting stops were amazing. We had a truly wonderful evening, good food, good company, and Jo... More

We had an amazing dinner tour of the Gracia district of Barcelona. The food was unbelievable, and Jo was the perfect hostess. Not only did we eat oh so well, but we learned so much about the food, the restaurant proprietors, and the Gracia area. We will definitely sign up for another tour the next time we are in Barcelona.... More

My wife and I had a great time on the Gracia tour. Anna met us promptly and we were off with one other solo traveller. The tour gave us a good overview of tapas as well as showed us places that we would have otherwise never found with our short amount of time in the city. The evening flew by... More

I was traveling in Barcelona solo and saw all of the great reviews on TripAdvisor so decided to check it out myself. Jo was an awesome and entertaining guide and the whole experience was well worth the money. Went to many local places, ate great food and drinks--and got a bit of a history lesson as we walked through the... More
