Loved this tour as had a nice walk through the streets of Barcelona that I may never have found if I had not done this. The Tapas and wine were spot on and very different from the ones that you get in the tourist places. Javier was brilliant as our host and he only has a maximum of 10 people on the tour so allows everyone to get to know each other. We did 4 tapas bars and a trip to the market and all of the places were very different and chosen with care. At the end Javier then gives you a recommendation of places to go in Barcelona. We also dropped into a chocolate shop on the way to the last bar which was spot on especially the taster of the Mojito and Almond chocolate. Never felt rushed at all and very generous portions of food and wine. Would highly recommend. Target audience I would say would be couples and groups of friends.
We did the Michelin food tour with our guide Javier and it was honestly one of the best things we did while visiting Barcelona. We went to 2 very different restaurants that represented different regions of Spain and tried many different tapas paired with regional wines which were just outstanding. Javier was very knowledgeable in explaining all the complexities of the Spanish cuisine in a very friendly and interesting way. Also at the end of the tour, we received many personal recommendations from our guide to eat around town which we followed throughout our stay. It was a great start to our holidays in Barcelona, would definitively recommend doing one of his tours!
We took the Barcelona food and wine tour- guided by Javier. It was an amazing experience and we learned about all the different types of tapas and wines of Spain. We explored some really interesting neighborhoods that were off the beaten path and tried lots of local tapas. Overall delicious food and an amazing guide !!
My wife and I took this tour and we had such an amazing time! Our tour guide Javier was very knowledgable and he gave us a lot of information about the local food. He also provided us with some history of Barcelona which was very interesting. All the tastings of both food and regional wines were exceptional. Also our small-group tour made more personal. At the end our group ended up being friends and we followed some of Javier's local recommendations for the remainder of our stay. We definitely recommend taking this tour to get a general understanding of the local food scene of Barcelona!
