Fabulous tour
What an awesome day! We opted to go early and have lunch first and Christian picked a selection of local Spanish appies that were so good. Doing the tour with him was like spending the day with a good friend. The chocolate is first class and Cava is amazing. Chocolate factory tour is very well done and we loved the quaint, family run winery where everything is so personal. The train trip through beautiful Spanish countryside was very enjoyable. A very fabulous day, you won’t regret booking this tour!
Wine Tour: Exclusive Cava & Chocolate
10-star experience
Amazing day! Cava, chocolate and a very knowledgeable tour guide who feels more like an old friend, it doesn’t get any better! Christian has access to a very old Cava House/Cellar and it was just so cool! We felt like VIP’s. After touring the cellars and watching them disgorge and cork the bottles we had a tasting in their beautiful garden . Great great Cava ...and many options. We took advantage of the lunch add on and it was spectacular. Delicious and very reasonably priced. Then on to Simon Coll, chocolate chocolate chocolate! I wish I bought more. Very professional tour of their facility and generous tasting . Take this tour, we had a great time learned so much on this delicious day away from the city. Would give it 10 ⭐️ if I could Thank you Christian!
Wine Tour: Exclusive Cava & Chocolate
Exceeded my expectations!
It’s an experience that had exceeded my expectation! Christian’s very friendly and attentive and the tour was arranged in such a way that it’s both relaxing and fun. My mom and I had a most enjoyable day out filled with cava, chocolate and interesting conversations (not to mention the lunch that Christian suggested and arranged for us was also great!) The highlight of the day was during our visit to the cava cave we ran into the cave owner, and I was given the chance to learn to open a bottle of cava with a sabre, which was really an unexpected and memorable experience :) Thanks Christian!
Wine Tour: Exclusive Cava & Chocolate
Fantastic tapas tour!
We had a great time with Donnie, learning about the food and drink of Barcelona, but also a lot about Catalonian history and current events. He was very knowledgeable and tailored the conversation to our interests. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would highly recommend this tour!!

Exceeded expectations
Our tour with Francisco exceeded our expectations - he is an outstanding guide with a passion for local foods. At all of our stops he was able to give food and drink recommendations based on their specialties. He also took several wonderful pictures during the tour that were promptly emailed to us. We are planning a trip back to Barcelona in 2018 and plan to use him again.
Private Tapas Tour with Transport
We thoroughly enjoyed the tours
We had a wonderful time with Francisco on our tour to Montserrat and our Tapas Tour. He picked us up exactly on time at our apartment for both tours and we enjoyed every minute we spent with him. Our drive to Montserrat was lovely and Francisco explained the history of Montserrat as well as some interesting stories about the site. We loved Francisco's choices of restaurants for tapas and we would never have known what to order without him!
Private Tapas Tour with Transport
We had a great night with Francisco.
We walked to 2 nearby tapas restaurants and had a great variety of foods to sample. He taught us about the different offerings and encouraged us to be adventurous. He fit right in with our family of five. I would highly recommend this evening opportunity.
Private Tapas Tour with Transport
Amazing fun!
From start to finish, our young guides were animated and enthusiastic. They were extremely well informed about the area and the yummy food that was selected for us to taste. Our guides made it even more fun than it would have been anyway. Everything was interesting, but the wine was especially good and interesting. It was especially well presented, almost as well as a sommelier might have done. We were very impressed, overall. We would even do it again.

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 :)

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!

My husband and I took a "Grandma's Cooking Class" when we were in Barcelona for our honeymoon. We had an absolute blast!! We loved how authentic everything was -- including the venue! The food was also incredible-- we couldn't believe we helped make it! Highly recommend this activity to anyone traveling in Barcelona!

Traditional Spanish Cooking Class with a Local Grandma in Barcelona
One of my most enjoyable and memorable experiences in Barcelona
My nephew told us this is a 'not to be missed experience'. He was right. Yves expertly helped us choose a menu we all liked and lead us through the market choosing the best ingredients. We returned to his lovely house and he involved us all in cooking the meal.
The ambiance was lovely from music, wine, city views, gourmet kitchen and conversation. Best of all the food was delicious and we had learned how to cook it! This is a NOT TO BE MISSED EXPERIENCE!

Yves – talented chef and host with a big heart
My son recommended Yves as an experience not to be missed. Our day with him exceeded all expectations!! My two sisters and I met Yves at the Boqueria to explore the bountiful choices, commiserate on which menu we wished to create, shop, and it all miraculously took shape with Yves at the helm. Our afternoon of cooking was glorious, the outcome was a lunch I will always remember. Yves cooks with all heart and inspires us all. Thank you Yves, and kisses to you and your lovely family!

Wonderful Family Cooking Experience
Our family of 6 (including my mother in law) recently met up with Yves in Barcelona. It was so great to shop a local farmers market with a local and learn about all the types of ham and fish, which can be overwhelming when you're trying to figure it out yourself, especially in another language. Yves is very knowledgeable and made it fun and interesting for all of us. The kids really enjoyed it too and were so enthusiastic about the cooking process which takes place in his beautiful home (with incredible views of Barcelona)!! The whole experience was such a treat.

Tapas Tour Barcelona
Great tour and very good guide Mia . Visiting 4 Tapas place1, 1 historically place and 2 churches.
Nice walk through 3 different
Kind areas. Highly recommendad.
Taste the culture, between tapas and wine
Well connected & brilliantly executed food tours
I had the pleasure of experiencing both the Savour Spain & Gourmet Gaudí tours on a recent trip. I walked away feeling like I'd experienced the Barcelona food scene in a comprehensive and meaningful way. Wanderbeak clearly curates positive relationships with suppliers, allowing for excellent service and access. Furthermore, the guides were highly skilled at encouraging group dynamics, while weaving in historical context. As a travel professional, I can confidently recommend Wanderbeak tours for the culinarily curious.
Wanderbeak: Gourmet Gaudi Culinary Adventure
Marwa's Gourmet †Gaudí‡ Tour
Marwa's tour, Gourmet Gaudí, was just the best way to experience beautiful Barcelona.. a totally unique take on a food tour, this was a guide through the famous architecture of the emblematic street of Passeig de Gracia along with some high-class nosh. Marwa is the perfect guide, bubbly and fun, knowledgeable and concerned about her guests all at the same time. We were so well fed by the end of it.. the highlight being the Gourmet lunch carefully designed by Marwa herself along with the chef at the restaurant. I won't give too much away but let's just say you'll definitely get a taste of "Michelin " here on this tour. Don't miss out on this one it's 100% worth it. We loved Marwa!!
Wanderbeak: Gourmet Gaudi Culinary Adventure
Tapalicios and Gourmet †Gaudi‡
We did the Tapalicious tour and had so much fun with Marwa as our tour guide that we decided to do the Gourmet Gaudi tour with her 2 days later. The Gourmet Gaudi tour was extremely enjoyable as well. Since we felt like we already knew Marwa it was really like a friend showing us some of the architecture and the food she loves. Gaudi's work is incredible but the other architecture in the city is equally astounding and Marwa did a great job of pointing out the details that make Barcelona's buildings so incredible. We ate at Roca Moo and were not disappointed. Food and service were fantastic and it was great to be enjoying the experience with a local that was knowledgable enough to give us all the background information about the restaurant and its dishes. Again the portions were generous and great value for money.

I cannot choose the better of the two so if you can afford it, do both.

Highlight of our visit to Barcelona
Can't recommend this tour enough!
My family and I (there's 5 of us) were very keen to do a walking tapas and wine tasting tour during our short visit to Barcelona. We wanted to make sure we did a tour that wasn't too long, not too much walking, but plenty of tasty food and drink and I can honestly say Wanderbeak has hit the nail on the head with the tour that they offer! We were taken around the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona where we were given interesting information about the history, culture and local traditions, taken to unassuming but fabulous typical Spanish restaurants which we would never have thought to go in ourselves but I'm so glad we got to experience it, and tasted an array of different types of Spanish cuisines and deserts! To top all of that off, our guide Rowan was fab, very personable and chatty with a great sense of humour. He made the tour interesting and it is obvious a lot of time and thought has been invested into providing the best possible experience for tourists. I will definitely be recommending this as a MUST DO to any of my friends that travel to Barcelona!
