Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

My husband and i where recommended to do this tour by our daughter. We were not sure if this tour would suit a mature couple as my daughter went with three other young girls and said that they had ' an evening to remember in Barcelona ' with Jo and plenty to drink ! ( and eat). On arriving ,... More

My husband and I loved the tour. Jo was the best guide and loved to share her own knowledge and enjoyment of tapas and wines. Lots of tastes and great wine at the tapas bars. A wonderful night.

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

We are foodies. We thoroughly enjoyed this tour, which was quite better than anticipated. A good time was had with the other 6 people in our group of 8, plus the wonderful tour guide, whose name escapes me at this time. The tour started at 7:00pm with some cheese tasting, along with some wines (which were available at all of... 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
