Authentic Tapas Tour

I did the tapas walk with Javier because I was traveling alone, and everything I read about tapas said it was a very social meal. I normally enjoy eating alone when I'm traveling, but I felt that tapas wasn't going to work. So basically I decided to buy some friends to eat tapas with! I also had no idea where to go or what was best, and the tapas tour was fantastic. We were a small group, and Javier was a perfect balance of knowledgeable, informative, fun, and friendly. I feel like I got to experience something essential to Barcelona culture in a much better way than if I'd gone it alone. Javier was open to questions about anything Barcelona-related. He knew his history and his tapas:) I'd definitely recommend the tour to others, especially solo travelers.

Cooking class & Boqueria market guided tour

Loved the evening we spend with Angels and Carmen, who are knowledgeable and so warm and welcoming. Not only did we learn to make various iconic Catalan dishes, but we had a wonderful time. Their open plan kitchen setting, is very centrally located in a building with soaring ceilings and a great atmosphere. And the food was absolutely delicious. I highly recommend this experience, whether your stay in Barcelona is short or an extended one. You will truly feel like you are immersed in Catalan food culture.

Tapas and Wine Tour

Carles was the perfect guide to show us around for some drinks a food. He's a very relaxed and friendly guy who we had a great time hanging out with. He gave us a great introduction to Barcelona and recommendations for how to spend our time here. I hope one day we can repay him if he ever makes his way out to in our city.
