Owner description: 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.
Useful Information: Food available for purchase, Bathroom facilities

The Tapas Tour with the Barcelona Taste, was exceptional. Our guides Jo and Catherine took us on a tour of several places for the best tapas. We felt at home at each place, so much to taste, so much to drink,
Really small group, We all became best friends in a minute. This is a first class tour and worth every euro.
Go enjoy

My wife and I had such a wonderful time eating and drinking through the Gothic district with Joe and Catherine. We had gotten in early that morning and still had not slept from the day before and Joe and Catherine made sure we got a cab back to the hotel safely. Greatest host and hostess we could have asked for and the food was fantastic. Worth every penny spent. Will do it again when we go back to Barcelona.

My wife and I just enjoyed this great tour less than an hour ago on July 17, 2013. Our gastronomic guide was Jo.She instantly made our group of five feel like a family that had not seen in each other in awhile and was catching up on all the 'news' going on since we last met. By the end of the three hours we did not want to say goodbye. She brought us to 4 places. We had cheeses, meats, fruits, vegetables, and of course dessert! Wine, cava, or beer at each stop is available. For a steak and potatoes guy like me, there are plenty of choices. The walk and talk covers a bit of history, a bit of sightseeing, and alot of foods! I Highly recommend this tour.

We did this last year and loved it. Jo and Joe were great, she is very funny. The food samled was very simple and delicious, fitting the Spanish/Catalan style of highlighting just a few ingredients in a stellar way.
Highly recommended.

We went on this tour on the first night of our trip to Barcelona and it was a great start! We were with a great group of people and had a really fun night. We were taken to places that we would have walked past if we had been on our own, trying all sorts of food and drink that we wouldn't have known to try. We were so glad that we did this tour on the first night as it gave us the opportunity to go back to a couple of places we had visited on the tour. When we go back to Barcelona we will definitely be trying the other tours the guys run!
