Walking tour of Barcelona through food and wine
No one else booked the tour the day we went, so we ended up with a private tour for just the two of us. It was an amazing experience, Mireia was so knowledgeable and nice. She gave us a great background on Barcelona – the food and the city – that you would never get through a book. She personalized aspects of the tour based on our interests, and what we had already done while we were there. The food, wine, and experience was all exceptional

Maria was an excellent and friendly guide. She is a Catalonian and proudly so. We learnt about the old history and current history in Barcelona. My husband and I would recommend this tour. Food was great too

Amazing Tapas and History Tour!
Our two guides were fabulous, and we had a fantastic time. We actually ate at both stops on the tour more than once because we absolutely loved them. They also gave us print out maps with the locations we visited, and more dining suggestions which we put to good use. If we did not take this tour we would have been totally clueless on how to order tapas! I feel horrible that I am blanking out on our guide’s names (a male and female in their early to mid twenties) because they were absolutely fabulous! If you see this then thank you both 🙂
