The city's first gastronomical tapas tour, The Barcelona Taste is about food. And lots of it! On this 2-3 hour food tour we stop in 3-4 small food establishments in either the famous Gothic or the lovely Gracia neighborhoods of Barcelona.

Our venues range from high-quality specialty shops to home-style tapas restaurants, each one with its own scrumptious specialties for you to taste.

A knowledgeable and very friendly guide will safely lead you through this labyrinth of a neighborhood, all the while sharing stories about Barcelona life, food, and history. You will enjoy all the cuisine, and, due to the small size of the group, you will also enjoy a more personal, relaxed experience.

We enjoyed our evening with Jo (an amiable young woman who made the whole evening relaxed and pleasurable) as she took us to some eateries off the beaten path and had a great conversation. We left our palates in her capable hands (so to speak) and enjoyed things we might not have tried otherwise (conejo = rabbit). It was well... More

We went to 4 places that were each unique in what they served and their atmosphere/decor. I would have missed these gems if I was out on my own. John explained what we were eating and where it was from. The food was delicious. We had plenty to eat and drink. He also provided other recommendations for restaurants when we... More

We spent the evening with Claire who showed us several wonderful spots. My two daughters who have a limited diet tried everything Claire put in front of us and liked it. She got a sense of what we preferred and then pushed it to make sure we tried some new things. It gave my daughters the confidence to order on... More

We had a great, fun tour with Jo on our recent Barcelona trip. We visited four different spots for four different kinds of food and drink and loved learning how the food and culture are intertwined. Very informal and easy. Highly recommend. Jo's theatrical style made it even better and we loved getting to meet our tour mates. Great way... More

My wife and I decided to try a tapas tour as an easy introduction to tapas in Barcelona. We chose The Barcelona Taste as there were very positive TripAdvisor reviews. The on-line booking process was easy and the meeting point near Jaume I metro station is central and easy to find in the Bario Gotico "old town" area of Barcelona.... More

My boyfriend and I absolutely loved the tour experience we had with Jo from Barcelona Taste. What a great way to spend our first full night in the city, getting a taste of a few of the many wonderful local and small tapas bars (as well as a cheese shop)! Would highly recommend the Gotico Tour; wandering these streets at... More

This tour went above and beyond our expectations, and was a great way to begin our stay in Barcelona! Jo was a great host and made this experience a memorable one.

It’s difficult to add something new to the already excellent reviews. We were a small group of 2 couples. Jo was our guide on the El Gotico Tour and she was a delight. She was enthusiastic and obviously loved sharing her love of the city and its food. Her choice of four small, local, diverse establishments (no upscale, yuppie places... More

Neighborhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this picturesque neighborhood is the very heart of Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas brought to life by the many small bars and local musicians lasting late into the night. Fashionistas will be drawn to Portal de L’Angel, which is lined with well-known brand names and smaller boutique stands.
