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

March 2018 - My husband and I enjoyed our evening with Lorea. She arrived on schedule and then we proceeded to visit 3 different restaurants over the course of 3 hrs in the Gotic Quarter. She explained each tapas menu and the history as well as answered our many cultural, political and historical questions. It was just the 3 of us, which made for a very personal evening. She was very knowledgeable and I liked the fact that she was from Spain. As promised after she sent a list with some other restaurants which was a standard email I believe, which was fine except I had asked for some specific other details (a referral to a good local tapas cookbook and the name of the sauce in Spanish that went with the potatoes we ate). These were not sent, not a big deal. Each stop also included 1 glass of selected liquor, wine or aperitif. Overall an enjoyable evening, one I would recommend to others.

Just returned from a month in Europe visiting many of the cities we like. One city we hadn't stayed in before was Barcelona. We wanted to have tapas that night so we booked The Barcelona Taste. It was a great evening of food, talk, laughter, wine and meeting the interesting people who prepared our dishes. Laura our guide became more of a friend than guide and we enjoyed her company and the great dished she chose for us. What a night.

this was a great time in Barcelona. My daughters and I took this tour and was one of the highlights of our time in Spain. Jo was a great tour guide and was able to order great tapas especially for one of us with a gluten allergy. she took us to great places that we would never have found on our own.

Laura was our guide tonight on a very easy going and informative tapas tour. We enjoyed every minute and and every dish. Next time we come to Barcelona we would do another tapas tour knowing that it would be different but just as fun again. It’s a wonderful, easy and completely enjoyable way to get a quick introduction to some high standard, local (not touristic) and atmospheric Barcelona tapas restaurants that you would otherwise walk right by. It’s worth every euro.

EXCELLENT!!! The best thing our family did in Barcelona was signing up for Barcelona Taste. Our tour guide was VERY enthusiastic and knowledgeable. You could tell she loves what she does. We learned a lot about Spanish cuisine and culture. Excellent working relationship with local restaurants. We were treated very well. Would do it again.
