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!

After seeing reviews of the Taste and Traditions Tour in Barcelona we decided to book onto a tour. We enjoyed the whole experience and would highly recommend it. Vera, our guide, was excellent. She was extremely knowledgeable. The foods we sampled were superb. Well worth it. We would definitely book onto another tour.

I take food tours in most cities I visit abroad. This was the best not only for the food/drink choices but also for the amount of information about Spain, Catalina and Barcelona. And Alex’s sense of humor
