We wish we could give our experience 10 stars!!! Our mother/daughter group of 6 had a wonderful time at the private cooking class in Barcelona. The chef Jaume was exceptional and did a great job tailoring the dishes we made to our group. We learned so much about ingredients during our visit to the market as well. We highly recommend...

I've gone back a few times since then, but this time around, was able to experience the city through the wonderful planning of A Taste of Spain. My 2 friends with me had never visited the city before and given we were only there for 4... More

My family of four had an unforgettable time in Barcelona thanks to A Taste of Spain! We requested a private tour, and A Taste of Spain took care of every last detail, from our perfectly-situated, historical hotel to transportation to and from the airport. We loved getting to know Barcelona from a foodie perspective, and we felt that we were... More

Great experience to cook a Catalonian menu guided by professional cooks in cosy atmosphere. Thanks to Liz for this bestest birthday present I ever got! We really looking forward to repeating this cooking course.

We did both of these tours. Veronica was an excellent guide as we visited tapas venues. Jodie was equally excellent on our Barcelona tour and especially impressed us when visiting the Segrada Familia. Highly recommend both of these folks.

I wrote this review for the small public tour, but would highly recommend using Taste of Spain for private tours for the whole area or one city... In case you didn't see my review: I had visited all of Western Europe except for Spain and signed up for the 8 day Ultimate Foodie Tour of Spain starting in Madrid and... More

Just returned from this great tour. It's our first of this kind and we're really pleased we did it and will do another. Highly recommended. Very well organised and a good selection of experiences and hotels, food and wine. From initial booking right through to the last day - a very nice and helpful company.

This was a great tour. It was just the tour guide and us - so very private. Our tour guide was great - very knowledgeable about Spanish food and had great recommendations. She was so pleasant and fun and really made our trip great. We loved the food and wine we had with her. Highly recommended!!
