This tour was the highlight of our stay in Barcelona I highly recommend it recommend that you put it on your list and do it on your first day as you will want to revisit all of the tapas bar and sights that we saw. I also recommend starting in the early evening around 6pm like we did. Our guide was Alex and her knowledge, enthusisim, energy and personality was soooo refreshing. She is obviously very proud and knowledeable of her Spanish and Catalan heritage and her cultural and history insights were both informative and entertaining.

Amazing food tour. Our guide (Maia) was very engaged, polite, clear and enthusiastic. She was able to articulate clearly the food we were being served, it’s history, how it was made and it’s place in contemporary Catalan culture. Her knowledge of the city was evident and it was clear she was not just rehearsing information from a script. My personal favourite dish was the Octopus. The trip was very well organised and the restaurants we visited were all ready with the food by the time we arrived, there was minimal waiting for food, I recommend this tour for anyone visiting Barcelona who is unsure of which Tapas restaurants offer the best experience quality of food and experience.

Good tour. Plenty of food. Guide Natalia was very enthusiastic and helpful. We chose the flamenco option. This was quite pricey - €25-45 extra per person, although the dancer and musicians were obviously talented, this seemed expensive for only 45 minutes. Not our cup of tea, but gives you a authentic flavour of the tradition of Flamenco.

The food was not very good and not much of it, at one of the four stops the only food was as a deep fried anchovy! The wine pours were skimpy and we were not offered more. Our guide was Natalie and she took off walking faster than it was possible to keep up with her in many of the crowded areas. At each stop she gave a quick description of the food and then did not interact with anyone on the tour. Spent her time chatting with employees at the venue. We go on many food tours when traveling and this was a big disappointment. Do not waste your money!

We had a great group of people but our guide didn’t offer much in stories or history of the areas we walked. In fact, she walked so fast with no commentary that we had to advise her that two older women at the back had a hard time keeping up with the group. The tapas were tasty but the wine & drinks offered were small and not worth the $130 CDN that we paid. We thought the Flamenco show was included for the tour we selected but it was an additional cost which was not prominent in the description.

I really hate to leave a bad review but this was probably one of our worst food tour experiences unfortunately. Our guide was very friendly and probably very knowledgeable but we were basically unable to hear him the entire tour 1. Due to the size of the group (12 people) and 2. He just wasn’t loud enough. 2 other people in the group asked him to speak louder at two different times but honestly it never made a difference. He just was unable to speak very loudly. Also the thing that bothered my husband and I was that it was more of a history tour instead of a food and wine tour. We walked SOOO much and normally I would not care but it was so hot and humid it made it miserable. Then of course none of the three places we went had A/C so you never had any reprieve from the heat. Lastly which I think is quite embarrassing for this tour, we were at our last tasting and our table of 4 asked for another glass of wine and WE had to pay for it on the way out! So over the course of 3 1/2 hrs we only had 1 taste of wine at the first place (not a glass) but a pour of wine out of a glass jug straight into our mouth, 1 glass at the second place, and 1 at the last place. So overall you spend most of your time walking around and talking about history stuff that you can’t ever hear and a very small portion of your time eating and drinking…. Definitely was disappointed.

Hola Jenny! In name of everybody at Barcelona Local Experiences we are deeply sorry you feel like this about your experience! We try to improve each experience we host in any way we can. Regarding what you say about the extra glasses of wine, as the tour guide probably told you once the tour starts, we have fixed menus. This means that, besides the food, every customer has one glass of wine/vermouth/cava at each stop. Everything else that the customers want to order they must pay it extra. Anyhow, I will call you today so I can understand better your experience so we can keep improving our tours! Thank you so much :) Barcelona Local Experiences Team

The title of this tour is “tapas”, small bites. Don’t expect a 5-course meal. Having said that, we were full by the end of the tour. We visited 4 local spots and at each location we had delicious wine and really tasty tapas. My favorite are La Plata and Bodega Puntual. In fact, we visited these places on our own later. Our tour guide was very informative; taking us throughout the gothic quarter showing us unique and historical sites, we would not have visited on our own. Above all, he was very accommodating. When we informed him that my daughter was allergic to shell fish and tree nuts, he quickly notified each restaurant and made sure they had alternate tastings for her. Our group had several teenagers and young children and he made the tour interesting for them and kept them engaged. We also did the flamenco show at the end of the tour and we really enjoyed it. It was culturally enriching. I highly recommend this tour.

We had an incredible time at this tour with Alex as our tour guide!! She was so knowledgeable, fun, and really made it feel like a holistic tour of history, architecture, food and wine. A friend took this tour 5 years ago and recommended it and it was still wonderful even years after they took it! We did the evening tour and the weather was a humid Barcelona summer but with the sun down and light breeze it was great walking around. Despite what another review said, we left the tour feeling VERY full on both food and drinks. We definitely feel we got our money’s worth. The tapas restaurants weren’t just touristy spots - they were populated with locals. Our tour was a mix of couples, a family with small children, and a solo traveler - we all got along great and everyone felt they had the experience they wanted. We did not go to the Flamenco show so cannot review that. Would highly recommend this tour!

The guide was terrific.

Some of the food eaten did not meet expectations and would recommend removing the first place we went to.

I also expected this to be a much smaller group. We had 14 people which took away from the experience promised.

Francesci was a great guide, despite his love of cats, but at £130 for two I felt the tour was very poor value. We did a walking tour of 4 tapas bars, Somme better than others. There was no choice of wine, white in the first, Vermouth in the second, red in the third and white in the last, you could have water or soft drinks instead. Wines were ok but nothing special. I am not the biggest fan of tapas anyway so when you have no choice it’s even worse, fried herring in the first, then tomatoes bread and fish in the second, bread meats & cheese in the third and potatoes & octopus and a pudding in the last. My partner though the tour was good, I didn’t but then she is more sociable with 13 strangers than me! Half Americans snd half Brits. As I said Re guide was Spanish snd excellent giving a lot of history of the city snd talking about the food, not so much the wine. It’s all down to personal choice, but with hindsight I wish we spent half the amount on eating out in a decent restaurant in Barcelona of which there are over 8,000 in the city!! Life!
