Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
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.
Useful Information: Bathroom facilities, Food available for purchase

Spent a lively evening with hosts Jo and Julie oogling both the wonderful old part of Barcelona and the incredible offerings of food and drink. The tour is well planned with enough walking and chatting and eating to make it a great initiation into the food culture that is so very Spanish.
I would highly recommend this tour.

My daughter and I recently took this tour while in Barcelona. We totally enjoyed the evening, Jo and Joe were wonderful hosts and the choice of venues to visit was wonderful. I finally understood the difference between Basque and Catalan styles of tapas. We especially enjoyed the visit to the cheese shop.

Joe and Julie were fun and full of information about Barcelona and its environs. We were well fed and given the experience of local establishments that we would have never found on our own. We returned to one of the tapa bars for savory tapas and had one of the best meals in Barcelona. The price is not cheap, but well worth the cost. We did this our first night in Barcelona and it was an excellent way to start the trip and our experience in Northern Spain.

Spent evening w/ the male Joe of the 2 joes running the evening guide service. We visited four wonderful local bars/ restaurants -- the kind you wish you could find while visiting Barcelona but never seem to find. He also asked us what we wanted to see/visit/eat during the rest of our stay and followed up names & directions to various restaurants & places to help make the rest of our visit memorable. It's a very nice way to learn more about the culture & food of Catalina

We have three children and were concerned that a Tapas tour would not be the best venue for us...
Well, from the beginning, our tour guides were attentive to our children's questions and dietary preferences.
We had four tapas stops as described in the other reviews but we felt that our night out was custom tailored for us.
A truly fun, culturally informative, and tasy evening to say the least. The best statement from our kids: "it was the best meal night out."
My wife and I would go back to Barcelona tomorrow, just to repeat the Barcelona Taste experience.
