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.

We met with Tito (guide) who was an extremely warm person and quite simply the perfect host and guide. We felt we were in good hands from the very start. He has extensive and expert knowledge of his city (and of course Spanish history) plus he was 200% passionate about his food and wine. We "tapeo-ed" and chatted over yummy... More

I would give this 10 Stars if I could!!! We did the Poole Sec tour with Lorea. She is an absolute fabulous host and did an excellent job of food & drink selection. She was also very engaging and informed. She was able to give opus background and history on the area and also Spain in general. She kept the... More

My husband and I took the Gotic quarter tour last week and it was great! Our guide Lorea was wonderful. She ordered some great local tapas for us all to share. It was so much delicious Catalan and southern Spanish food, we were all pleasantly stuffed by the end. Our tour lasted about 3 hours and we went to 3... More

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

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

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.
