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

We really enjoyed our guides. Great way for us to have started our stay in Barcelona. A very knowledgable introduction to the foods you will find of Barcelonese culture. Great tips for ordering like menu del dia. Great value we were stuffed afterwards. Small intimate groups.

The Barcelona taste was amazing! Our tour was with Joe and we did a 3 hour tour of the Gracia area foods. We tried a ton of stuff that we wouldn't have ordered on our own, but all of it was amazing! You get to eat and learn about how the make the food, and which tapas and meals are... More

Great experience. Do early in your vacation because you will be able to ask your guide for other recommendations, - food or anything else. We experienced 4 locations. One for cheeses, one Catalan style tapas, one for Spanish style tapas, and one for desserts. I personally would have preferred going to 3 tapas bars and skipping the cheese one. The... More

An excellent 3 hour tour of Barcelona that was very personal; my wife and I learned a great deal about the city as well as the culture... with food & wine. Tito was a very good host / tour guide... entertaining and educational all at once. A truly unique start to the vacation... I highly recommend the Gotico Tour for... More

We had a great 3 hr tour with Jo the first night we arrived in Barcelona. We really got an authentic taste of the Tapas bars in the Gottico area. We learned about vermouth, mousca and beer and ate wonderful treats. They keep the tours small - 6 guests which makes it a lovely evenng. She even gave us great... More

This was a delightful evening in a small group of six plus our guide. We were a very congenial group and enjoyed getting to know each other as we sampled some of the best nibbles of our three weeks in Spain. You would never find the places that we went on your own--they are truly tiny and out of the... More

Did the Gotico tour - outstanding experience. Lisa was a great host, the rest of the group was really cool, and I loved all the small places that we went to which I would have never found on my own. Great food and drinks - especially the vermouth (still trying to find something like it here at home). Lisa also... More

My husband, granddaughter and I loved every minute of the Gracia tour. It was beyond our expectations. Joe was a fabulous host, super comfortable to be with. We learned a lot about Spain, barcelona, food and drinks. The places we went were tucked away and probably we would not have found or tried ourselves. Also the tapas were varied and... More

This was one of the highlights of our recent trip to Spain. We were met by two young delightful guides and joined two other couples for the evening. Even though we were much older than the rest of the group, we fit in really well and had a great evening. They take you to three very different tapas bars and... More
