My mother and I did the Tapas cooking class, ECO Bike Wine Tour and the Gastronomic Bike Tour of Barcelona.
It was amazing! An experience that I will never forget, and added so much to our vacation in Barcelona. Before traveling to Barcelona, I wanted to make sure my family did a mix of things that gave us a unique (non-touristy) view of the city. I wanted to really get a sense of the lifestyle, food, history and culture of Barcelona- and these tours did just that!! Guerillmo and Cristina are the best! They made the experience fun, enjoyable and authentic!
First we did the Tapas cooking class, the group was 8 total around Guerillmo and Cristina's kitchen table. The food was delicious, fresh and better than any restaurant in my opinion. We learned how to prepare the local foods, while drinking local wines! All the while, learning about Barcelona from Guerillmo and Cristina. A side note- Guerillmo and Cristina are all about incorporating local businesses and artisans into their tours, which really supports the community.
Later in the week we did the ECO Wine Tour. A MUST SEE! This all day bike tour took us 45 minutes outside of Barcelona. We took the Renfe train outside the city and our guide, Albert, met us right at the train stop. Very easy!
From there the group of ten biked through BEAUTIFUL Spanish wine country. It was a DREAM! Gorgeous weather, beautiful terrain. Albert was an amazing guide! So much fun! We toured two beautiful family run wineries, and had an amazing lunch between the wineries. It was a very special experience. I'm ready to go back! Anyone traveling to Barcelona NEEDS to venture outside the city and do a tour like this.
Our last tour with Slow Travel was the Gastronomic Bike tour of Barcelona. What a lovely experience! Cristina biked around the city with us and showed us some of her favorite food and drink spots. You won't find this in any tour book. It was a one of a kind experience. Cristina was so knowledgable about the culture and history of the area. She took us to THE BEST spots in the city.. and we tried some delicious food. Bikes were very comfortable and we rode through very safe areas. It was a wonderful way to experience Barcelona. We even ventured to the Mediterranean Sea and hung out at the boardwalk area. Cristina was a wonderful guide!
Both Guerillmo and Cristina are so knowledgable, they even sent us amazing recommendations of neighborhoods and restaurants to check out. (Albert at the ECO wine tour was amazing too!) I'm so thankful we booked tours through Barcelona Slow Travel. I can't imagine our trip without these 3 special tours. I didn't want it to end! Touring with Barcelona Slow Travel will give you an experience you can't find in a guide book... a special, unique experience that I plan to tell all my friends about. This is a MUST.
