A definite must do

We did this tour on our first night in Barcelona. We were exhausted, just having had arrived from Australia, but found this tour a wonderful way to spend our first evening. Dago, our guide was very interesting and friendly and went out of his way to make the evening an enjoyable one. He even ensured that, as a coeliac, I did not miss out and could enjoy the food as much as everyone else. A most memorable night.

Great way to start a holiday in Barcelona!

We had a fantastic night out with our guide and 9 others from around the world. We ate a great deal of good food and drank a great deal of good wine/sangria/beer. No dinner was required after the event! I thoroughly recommend this tour, fed, watered, entertained and home with some great memories.

Great authentic experience!

The tour encompassed two of my favorite things...history of urban areas and local food. I felt like I experienced Barcelona like a local and developed a whole new appreciation for the history of Spain.

A good selection of tapas with an excellent guide.

We enjoyed going to tapas bars which were not in the main tourist area. Our guide (Drago?) gave us an interesting overview of the area and we thought the selection of tapas was excellent.
