We did both of these tours. Veronica was an excellent guide as we visited tapas venues. Jodie was equally excellent on our Barcelona tour and especially impressed us when visiting the Segrada Familia. Highly recommend both of these folks.

I wrote this review for the small public tour, but would highly recommend using Taste of Spain for private tours for the whole area or one city... In case you didn't see my review: I had visited all of Western Europe except for Spain and signed up for the 8 day Ultimate Foodie Tour of Spain starting in Madrid and... More

Just returned from this great tour. It's our first of this kind and we're really pleased we did it and will do another. Highly recommended. Very well organised and a good selection of experiences and hotels, food and wine. From initial booking right through to the last day - a very nice and helpful company.

This was a great tour. It was just the tour guide and us - so very private. Our tour guide was great - very knowledgeable about Spanish food and had great recommendations. She was so pleasant and fun and really made our trip great. We loved the food and wine we had with her. Highly recommended!!

A Taste of Spain’s Ultimate Foodie Tour ended on a high note in Barcelona. The shopping trip through the Boqueria and cooking with chef Jaume was a fun way to experience Barcelona’s food. A side trip to Sitges was picturesque and beautiful. There was a good mix of food, cultural experience and free time in Barcelona - a fantastic end... More

My husband and I arrived in Barcelona as part of Taste of Spain's week long ultimate foodie tour. After an excellent guided tour of the Guggenheim in Bilbao and a memorable and delicious lunch, the tour company organized a flight from Bilbao to Barcelona. On arrival in Barcelona and after hotel check-in, we had an excellent and interesting guided tour... More
