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

Jo was fantastic! She was outgoing, entertaining and very knowledgeable. The food and drink were all exceptional as well. This was definitely a highlight of my trip!

The Gracia tour was a perfect end to our time in Barcelon (we would have preferred to do it earlier during our stay but they were all booked up). Tonnes of great food (we certainly weren't hungry by the end of the night), and a good variety too, which was nice. Joe was an excellent guide - friendly, funny and... More

We went on this tasting tour the first night we arrived in Barcelona -it was wonderful! Anna took us to small, authentic Bodega and we had a wonderful selection of different tapas, each quite different & delicious! The drinks were also well matched, ranging from vermouth through to local wines and craft beers. The cost of the evening was all... More

Felt as though we were hanging with a group of friends, it was a very cosy atmosphere indeed. Joe was a wonderful host with a real passion for food and Catalan (Barcelona) history. Would highly recommend anyone & everyone experience this foodies sensation! Joe was even kind enough to travel with us to our metro station - great bloke! He... More

We had a nice small group (4), heading to various Tapas spots in The Barri Gotic. Dave was an excellent guide, he took us to places that were off the beaten path. Everything we ate and drank was scrumptious. I highly recommend spending an evening with Dave on this tour. He was also kind enough to email us suggestions, for... More

Anna was amazing and took a very small group to several very local places for tapas and vermouth. The choices were all very intentional and well thought out- we visited a Bodega where they make their own vermouth, a modern market dish restaurant and a classic traditional tapas place. She also gave us a wonderful snapshot of local life and... More

What a great night out. To get lots so tapas to try can be difficult as a solo traveler. This tour was like a group of friends going out for the night. First the sacred cheese, with an insight into Scottish politics, vermut in an authentic bodega with a great range of new and exciting tapas. Onto another place with... More

We signed up for the BT Barri Gotic tapas tour early in our two week visit to Barcelona and we were happy we did because once was not enough. Two days later we took the Grazia tour! The tours were very different in that Barri Gotic focused on typical local tapas and Grazia introduced us to small plates, mostly unusual... More

My girlfriend and I went on the Gotico tour and my oh my were we pleasantly surprised. Great introduction to Barcelona, it's food and culture. Our guide Lisa, was amazing, very knowledgeable. Our tour group was great, a bit on the “saddity" side, however always a pleasure to meet others from around the world on a common human need, food.... More

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
