The city's first gastronomical tapas tour, The Barcelona Taste is about food. And lots of it! On this 2-3 hour food tour we stop in 3-4 small food establishments in either the famous Gothic or the lovely Gracia neighborhoods of Barcelona.

Our venues range from high-quality specialty shops to home-style tapas restaurants, each one with its own scrumptious specialties for you to taste.

A knowledgeable and very friendly guide will safely lead you through this labyrinth of a neighborhood, all the while sharing stories about Barcelona life, food, and history. You will enjoy all the cuisine, and, due to the small size of the group, you will also enjoy a more personal, relaxed experience.

Attended the Poble Sec tour. Lorea our guide was totally amazing with her in depth knowledge of the area and the restaurants we visited. All three of them were inspired choices as were the dishes chosen. There were remarkable and the whole group agreed there was not a bad dish among them. I attended as a solo traveler and would...

What a fabulous evening. We had the pleasure of Jo's company and travelled on foot to some real culinary delights. A small group of six, our evening was full of different exciting foods with the local Vermont flowing with wine and fizz to compliment every dish. We laughed until it hurt. Jo is a great host, knowledgable, fun and full... More

My husband and I had the privilege of dining w/Jo this past week. What a joy! Friendly, insiders guide to such a wonderful city. The conversation, food, and drinks were all amazing! She also emailed great recs on the back end of other places and areas we were wanting to try! I would highly recommend doing this foodie night out.... More

Our family spent a glorious week in Barcelona. By far our favorite evening was the one we spent with Jo. It was like hanging out with a new friend seeing the sites and eating fantastic food! We are planning a trip back soon and will definitely be doing this tour again! Give it a try, you won't be disappointed!

Whilst you are spoilt for choice for things to do and see in Barcelona do yourselves a favour and book into this tour. Jo, our guide for the night, really knows her stuff and takes you on a walking tour through the streets of Barcelona into restaurants you'd probably just walk by and miss the goodies on offer. What I... More

We were lucky enough to have Jo as our guide on this "tour" - a US ex-pat with amazing stories of her time in Spain. Great conversationalist, incredibly engaging, and completely knowledgeable about the neighborhoods and their best local spots! Food, vermouth, and wine were fantastic everywhere she took us. Really has her act together! Don't miss out on this... More

This tour was amazing. It took us to places we never would have tried or found on our own and all of them were fantastic. Our tour guide, Lorea, was terrific. I am a vegetarian and, despite my best intentions to do so, did not notify the tour company beforehand. I was completely prepared to not be able to try... More

Our experience with The Barcelona Taste was an excellent introduction to Spanish food culture. We booked a tour with Jo hoping to gain more confidence in ordering tapas, and because I have some food allergies so I was hoping to learn about food that would work for my diet. Our tour with Jo was fantastic! She was incredibly knowledgeable about... More

All the places we went to had fabulous food and great wine choices. I would do this again and make it the main point of the evening.

I meant to get a review done right away (didn't) .... but it is well worth the 5 stars! We had such a great time. This is a small group (6) and a guide on a walking tour (not strenuous) in the gothic district of Barcelona. We visited 4 local places, with wonderful food! So nice to get the flair... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this picturesque neighbourhood is the very heart of Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas brought to life by the many small bars and local musicians lasting late into the night. Fashionistas will be drawn to Portal de L’Angel, which is lined with well-known brand names and smaller boutique stands.
