Eric was a great guide for the Tapas and Taven tour in Barcelona. A perfect mix of food, history and conversation about local areas of interest.

Our tour was AMAZING! Our tour guide was the BEST. Feliciano was incredible! He chose the best restaurants - the tapas were just amazing. He was engaging and provided a ton of history about the city. It was quite obvious how passionate he is and how much love he has for his city! This tour went above and beyond all my expectations! My friends and I feel so incredibly lucky to have had this experience!

Mick was the best tour guide we’ve ever had for a food tour. Most other guides just bring you to a few spots with not much history in between. Mick gave us a full detailed rundown not only of the full detailed history of Spain and Barcelona, but also of the food and wine and cooking methods for everything we ate. This was the best food tour you can sign up for by far.

Mick Birmingham is knowledgeable articulate and a caring guide. We enjoyed everything about the tour. We had a problem arriving on time because the police closed the main road near to the meeting point. We eventually got the itinerary from the central phone number but it was a panicky start to our tour. We set off from the hotel in very good time planning to have coffee near the start point. The road was closed for a demonstration y Catalan separatists

The tour felt very personalized.The history of the tour was packed nicely in between stops .Mikka was super with references to wines of the regions, food choices and referrals for our trip.I don't think a meal is necessary after this just wine- from recommendations.Getting exclusive tables makes you feel like a celebrity.This tour is a must for the Gothic quarter experience.
