What people are saying about Plaça Sant Jaume, Barcelona

Our tour guide, David, was excellent. He was very personable and funny and had a lot of fun knowledge about Barcelona. We were introduced to different types of tapas we would have never tried without the tour. I would have liked maybe one or two more tapas because I wasn't quite full when we left. Plenty of alcohol though which was nice :) Overall great experience and I would highly recommend.

Wonderful tour - guide was knowledgeable and extremely helpful. We were split into two groups , with the Spanish speakers going in one tour and the English speakers on the other. Plenty of food, lots of wine, and really interesting , unique places I never would have found on my own.

Our guide, Tanit, could not have been more personable. She was a joy to be around, always willing to accommodate any question or request. She knew her stuff and she entertained as she educated. Just a delightful young lady.

The tour was the best thing we planned on our trip. Our tour guide was great fun and knowledgeable, the food was amazing and learning more about the city was the icing on top. I’d highly recommend it to anyone

The experience was more than food & drink, although everything was delicious. Our guide, Tanit was bright, energetic, and friendly. We enjoyed a nice walk and lots of history along the way!
