Happy Experience
I booked an e-bike tour with Agata. When I arrived I was welcomed warmly. Our group proceeded to a nice lounge area where she gave us clear instructions. We did a bike test run and then began the tour around the city. The views were incredible and Agata explained the history of each location. She also let us explore around to appreciate the views of the landmarks and take pictures.

I enjoyed chatting with her, she's was friendly, engaging and smart. I will be booking another tour with her on my next trip to Barcelona. Thank you, Agata, for giving me the best tour of the city!.

Great experience, wonderful people, fun night out with our kids!
What a fun night! Veronica, Cali and the rest of the crew welcomed us and our kids with warmth and kindness into their lovely kitchen, where we spent a fun evening cooking the most delicious meal. Cali was spectacular. I loved learning some of her special family recipes (the meatballs!!), and my kids felt right at home. After 10 days of restaurant eating on our vacation, this was a welcome change of pace. Surprisingly relaxing and full of laughs. Thank you for a fantastic evening! Highly recommend!!
Traditional Spanish Cooking Class with a Local Grandma in Barcelona
Fun, Food, And Wine
So glad I booked this. Even though I was pretty much dead from being awake for 27 hours of traveling. My mother and I still came out and had a great experience. Our guide, Alejandro, was sociable, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful. He ran into a hotel lobby to get my mother a map of the city. And he spoke very good English.
We walked to four tapas places. Everything was great. Especially the place with the fried sardines. Those were the highlight. At one of the places they served a charcuterie dish and one of the people in the group didn't eat meat but they accommodated him. Which I thought was cool. Between food and drink we made short stops where he told us about history and facts about the area. Glad we didn't cancel because we had a memorable time!

Great Experience
This was one of the best tours we took while on our Spain adventure. We met the chef, Yves, at the market where he showed us around and explained what our choices for our meal would be. We decided on a main course and some sides and after picking up the required ingredients, Yves took us to his home on a hill overlooking the city. We started off with a welcome drink on his rooftop patio with an amazing view. Then we all went down to the kitchen where he gave us aprons and we all helped cook our meal. The food was wonderful, Yves' house is amazing and we all enjoyed the meal and the company. We would highly recommend this tour and will definitely do it again if we ever go back to Barcelona.
Market to Fork: Cooking Class & Meal with Chef Yves in Barcelona
Perfect start of our Barcelona visit
We booked a private Born to Eat tapas tour on our first night in Barcelona. Marwa was our tour guide, and she was excellent! Even though the booking said maximum 8 people, she was able to have the whole group of ten people. We visited several great places for food and drinks, and Marwa was very knowledgeable about food, wine and the history of Barcelona. She also gave us some great suggestions on where to go for shopping, food and drinks during our stay. This was the perfect start of our Barcelona visit, and we highly recommend this tour to anyone that may visit Barcelona! Thanks again, will be back for more next time!
Wanderbeak: Born to Eat Tapas Tour
Phenomenal
I love being outdoors, so, I expected this to be good. Well, it exceeded my expectations. Ferran has knowledge AND experience. He contacted me before the hike to find out if I had a particular interest and my fitness level. On the hike, he shared with me interesting facts about the area and he made sure I was safe and that I felt comfortable.

I definitely recommend it! I got the physical challenge I was looking for, I took breathtaking pictures (I tried), and I experienced an unexpected sense of peace and joy. I LOVED IT!
Montserrat Mountain Hike from Barcelona
Not to be missed!
We had a wonderful experience with Chef Yves! First we did a tour of the market where Chef Yves explained everything about the local produce. He suggested numerous dishes that we could prepare (all sounded amazing!) and once we chose what we wanted, we bought the products and drove to his house for the cooking experience. We ended up preparing - a steak with foie gras, razor clams, artichokes with squid and monkfish in the oven. All tasted great and we are going to try cooking the artichokes today for dinner at home :)

Spectacular
This trip was well worth it. Away from the city you see amazing views of Catalunya. The salt mountain was spectacular, it's definitely worth seeing. My family loved every part of the trip. Our tour guide Mauriusz was very helpful and knowledgeable. They picked us up at our apartment and kindly dropped us off at the restaurant we were wanting to go to in the evening.
Cardona & Salt Mountain Day Tour from Barcelona
Great time!
Adrian introduced us to some amazing foods and drinks and gave us some history too. As we walked around, he pointed out other places not on the tour that we should try, which we visited the next day. Our tour group stayed out after the tour for a few drinks. It was a great way to learn about the city, the food, and culture, and make some friends too!
Sips, Sites & Bites
Must do upon arrival!
This was an awesome way to get an intro to Barcelona. Our guide was awesome and gave us the perfect mixture of history of the food and landmarks we were seeing. We got to see the 3 mains areas of the old part of town so it was a great way to get to know the city center.

This was A LOT of food! We were definitely stuffed at the end.
Wanderbeak: Savor Spain Food Tour
Tour to hidden gems
Barcelona is bike-friendly so don’t hesitate to explore the city by bicycle -especially if you have a guide like Edu. Being born and raised in Barcelona he gave us an amazing insight into the history of his city, leed us to hidden places - avoiding the overcrowded touristy areas. Pace was easy, city-bikes were in good condition.
The LEGENDARY Barcelona Bike Tour
Great local guide, excellent food and drinks
We had a really lovely guide Tanit, who took us to some great venues and also shared some history of the town along the way. She had great knowledge of the food and wine and was able to answer any questions. Would recommend this tour!

It was fantastic!
It was an awesome tour, the guide (Juan Carlos) was kind, funny and he knew everything about the story of Barcelona. It was the first time we went to a free tour but I am sure not the last one. Thank you for everything!

Spanish Cooking Experience in Barcelona
B
This trip was a delight. My wife, my daughter and I were the only ones on this tour on a Tuesday in early April. We all had a very good time and recommend it.

Victor was our guide. While he drove us, Victor told us a lot about Dali’s life. As a result, in addition to learning about Dali the artist, we also learned about Dali the man.

I break the trip into three parts.

First, we drove from Barcelona to the Dali House in Port Lligat. You need to make reservations in advance and you have to get there on time. At the house, Victor was permitted to take the three of us through the Dali house by ourselves. So we basically had a private tour. Victor gave us a lot of insight into Dali and Gala. We enjoyed the house, the echo room, and the gorgeous view of the sea. Victor gave us time to explore the garden on our own, and that was very nice.

Second we drove to Cadaques and ate lunch at Casa Nun. We sat outside by the water. For lunch we had pumpkin and carrot cream soup, house wine, grilled cod and salmon, dessert and espresso. The food was excellent. Because it was such a warm, sunny day, Victor gave us some time to sit by the beach and walk around town. We were very happy with our lunch and found Cadaques to be a pretty town.

After lunch, we drove to the Dali Teatre Museum in Figueres. The museum, which was designed by Dali, was worth visiting. The art was well displayed.

Even though this is an expensive tour, you should keep in mind that the price includes tickets to both museums and lunch. Also, I often rent a car when we travel. I’m glad that I didn’t drive, because once you get off the main road, the drive to and from Port Lligat and Cadaques is difficult. It is hilly, the roads are winding, and you have to watch out for bicycles and slow traffic. By not driving, I was able to appreciate the spectacular views. Also, parking in all three towns is clearly a pain, and by not driving, I didn’t have to deal with that.
