A fantastic tour with Eric who created an experience that was fun, funny, informative and of course, tasty! Great food, interesting and engaging history of Barcelona's Gothic Quarter, with a couple of surprise Picasso's thrown in for good measure! Three hours very well spent.

We got stuck in traffic, but Eric waited for us since we were only a few minutes late. It was a great tour with lots of interesting facts you might not find in history books. The food and drink was great also. You won't go away hungry!

This tour is a gem. Our tour guide made it special with stories and historical facts. Being with a small group was like a build-in party. Very enjoyable and the food and drinks were perfect. Don’t hesitate on this one!

Mick was a hilarious and knowledgeable guide - appreciated his history lessons and the stories behind each of the places we visited. The food tour was a wonderfully intimate way to spend a couple hours, very different from the typical tourist experiences.
