Owner description: The Barcelona Taste's culinary tours were founded to introduce curious locals and adventurous tourists alike to the culinary treats nestled within the labyrinth that is Barcelona.Barcelona is, obviously, a major tourist destination and the number of tours, guidebooks, and websites devoted to the city’s visitors can be overwhelming. 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!

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

In our first visit to Barcelona, we thought the Gothic quarter tapas tour would be a great way to get acquainted with the locale and also the culture of tapas dining. It was also appealing to be in a small group, which turned out to be 6 people including our hostess Catherine. We all hit it off quite nicely and... More

Me, my friend and her son took the Gothic Quarter tour and let me say, it exceeded my expectations. The Groups were small (7 including the host) and there was plenty of food and drink. We actually went back to one of the places (cala de Vermut) a couple days later. Our host Tito was amazing!! (I wish we had... More

My friend and I recently went on this tapas tour with our guide Joe. We didn't know what to expect and were nervous about with being with a group of people we didn't know. Joe immediately impressed us with a friendly, casual, yet professional attitude. He was fantastic at breaking the ice and making our entire, quite diverse group, all... More

I had no expectations so I was truly surprised by the intimacy of the tour. We walk to each location thru the nite streets learning interesting history of the neighborhood. Each stop has high quality food and drink. I drank more than my norm but with the food and atmosphere it was no problem. Our host the amazing Mr. Joe... More

My wife and I had a great time with The Barcelona Taste. Anna was our host and she was fantastic. Not only were we introduced to some really eclectic Tapas bars, Anna shared all he knowledge of this great city with us. It was a great start to our 3 days in Barcelona. Jamie and Alex Creer, Sydney.

Our guide Anna was lovely, charming and knowledgeable. We ate very very well, met interesting fellow travelers, and explored Gracia. We walked through Gracia and ate at three distinct bodegas, all excellent. It was a great night. We would have signed up for another Barcelona Taste tour on the spot, had they had availability.
