This was an exceptional food tour. Hector, our guide, was passionate about Spanish food, wine and culture and knew so much. Without the tour, I would have walked and walked around old town and Barceloneta and would have found nothing! There is a labyrinth of paths and alley ways. I knew this tour met at Santa Caterina market and booked a hotel close to this so I could easily walk to it. I really enjoy markets in any city and this market was easy to navigate ie not too big. We had cava, cheeses, hams. Then walked to a patisserie and other places and then walked to Barceloneta for a lunch of paella. I would definitely recommend this tour.

Fantastic way to get to know a new place. I did my first food tour in Greece and have made it a custom to do one in each new country I visit. You will learn about the history, different neighborhoods and try local restaurants.

Hector was a great tour guide and he elevated the tour beyond just the food to educate us on the history of the neighborhoods we toured through and interesting details about each item we ate.

Absolutely worth every euro! Ariana was the perfect mix of information, fun & enthusiasm. A nice variety of delectable food, wonderful history and excellent walking tour of the Born neighborhood. A fair amount of walking but manageable for reasonably able bodied people. Very, very highly recommend!
