Owner description: Enjoy being guided through the streets of Barcelona, eating tapas, drinking local wines and sightseeing this beautiful city of Barcelona! While on your 5 hour cultural tapas and wine walking tour with your English speaking guide you are going to enjoy stopping in local bars and restaurants in 4 different neighbourhoods and at the same time tasting local wines, cava, tapas and typical food from Spain and the local region of Catalonia.

I knew from the raves of others how delicious the night would be, but I was surprised at the amount of history and background that was woven into the tour. Our guide Paul clearly has a passion for this city and this region, and he is informative and entertaining in his culinary, social, and political explanations.

But make no mistake, this is primarily about the dining. The five hours flew by like one hour, and each new stop brought new revelations.

My tour group of six consisted of two pairs and two singles. As you can imagine, the food and wine dissolved the barriers between us all, and soon we were chatting among ourselves like old friends.

We’re so glad we booked this tour—we’ll always remember it.

This tour is one of the best ways to really see, experience, and appreciate Barcelona.

Our guide took us took us to 4 restaurants and we tried well over a dozen different tapas. The food was excellent and plentiful, you will not leave hungry.

While we walked to our next restaurant, our guide Marta, took us to sights that were off the beaten track and explained to us the story of each neighborhood in Barcelona.

I wouldn't have been capable of seeing or appreciating the cultural history of Barcelona without our fantastic guide, Marta. She was great story teller and had excellent taste in food.

Marta even took the time after our tour, to sit with each couple and recommend a few restaurants and activities specifically for each couples trip. Her advice was invaluable and we ended up doing a lot of her suggestions.

We were in a small group of 6 and we had so much fun with one couple, we took a cooking class with them and then hung out with them for an afternoon.

My advice is to book this tour early in your trip because you will be able to appreciate Barcelona so much more afterwards.

I was nervous about booking this tour half a world away, but our three generation group all loved it and ranked it as the most wonderful thing we did our entire trip. We learned so very much about Barcelona's history & culture from Marta that I can honestly say we absorbed more in this one evening than we did in our several days & additional tours in Barcelona. Our dining companions were lovely. I've never done anything like this before, but will definitely look into it for our future travels. Thank you for opening our eyes, minds and taste buds to the phenomenon that is Barcelona! Bravo Marta - Bravo!!!

We can't say enough about how incredible this tour was- fortunately we did this the first night we were in Barcelona, so we got a lay of the land early on and it set the stage for our entire stay. Marta was warm, engaging, and knowledgeable, giving us an incredible lesson on history, culture and food as we ate and drank. We went to restaurants full of locals, not tourists, and she ordered every meal to perfection, giving us the background on each dish and how it tied into Catalan culture. After the tour, she sent us a list of every item we ate, every bottle we drank, and the name and location of the restaurant in case we wanted to go back (we did!). It was an amazing experience that we won't forget.

We were recently on a cruise that ended in Barcelona, and decided that tapas and wine were a perfect way to end our holiday due to several members of our party flying out the next morning. Our guide was Marta, who was wonderful with providing us with the cultural history of the city, particularly the areas that we visited, and the chosen wine and tapas at each location were amazing. None of our group finished the tour hungry! She explained the wine regions and tapas history as well.

Marta took us through some lovely areas that you just won't find from a tourist book, and explained the rich history behind them and showed us how the old and new combine to create these wonderful neighborhoods.

This is a perfect introduction to the city and I would recommend doing this early on in your visit. Also, Marta was happy to provide other restaurant suggestions to help enhance the rest of our stay in Barcelona.
