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.

A fun time experiencing and learning about tapas. Our guide, Lorea, took us to three tapas restaurants in the Poble Sec area of Barcelona. At each restaurant Lorea arranged for the drinks and tapas special to those establishments. While I probably would not have stopped at these restaurants had I walked by them, they proved to be excellent in quality... More

A very enjoyable evening with our guides. Fantastic food. Very helpful and friendly guides. My teenage son (18 years) thought it was one of the highlights of the holiday.

5 stars for Jo and Barcelona Taste! Delicious at every stop, from cheese to savory tapas to dessert. Jo is a marvelous story teller and food and wine and Barcelona enthusiast. We met wonderful people who toured with us, sang Happy Birthday to a delighted chef and enjoyed every minute. Highly recommended!

A great evening with Jo who was a delightful and very knowledgeable guide. She took us to four marvellous places, including the most fantastic cheese shop owned by an ex-pat Scot! We did the tour with two friends and we all enjoyed it immensely. Jo treated everyone like a long-lost friend and was interesting and, just as importantly, interested. She... More

My wife and I and two other couples (who we had never met) did the Gothic area tour with Jo. Jo was very engaging, very knowledgeable, and was very warmly welcomed by the tapas bar / cheese shop owners who we visited. The variety and quantity of food (and drink) was excellent and Jo's explanation of what we were eating... More

Had a fabulous night around the Gothic and the Born districts with Tito....such a great guide!!! Wonderful food...and lots of it (arrive hungry!!), small group was fantastic.
