Tapas with a friend
GaryG8880
, Nov 2019
Andrea met us on time at the designated meeting point, just off Las Ramblas, brimming with energy and enthusiasm for her task. There were only two of us on the tour, a fact that we found disappointing - for Andrea, but very fortunate for us because she devoted her complete attention to providing us with an outstanding experience. We went to four very different spots in El Raval and Pobel Sec, sampling one drink and one tapas at each, all the while conversing on topics ranging from family and friends to the current state of politics, and just about anything in between. All in all, it felt very much like we’d met up with an old friend who introduced us to a slice of her life in her home town, and entertained us as one would visiting relatives (that you like). Andrea displayed a deep desire to support local businesses that most 1st-time visitors to Barcelona would never find let alone venture into. We were greeted warmly at each stop, Andrea paving the way, of course, and the tapas and beverages that she and each stop’s purveyor selected were, in a word, excellent. I don’t make a habit of giving glowing reviews unless they are well earned. In this case, given the intimate size of our group and the efforts Andrea expended in making us feel at home, I feel that we both underpaid and over benefited from her generosity and warmth. If you are slightly more adventurous than the average traveler, and willing to step a bit out of your comfort zone, this tour is a great way to experience nuances of ‘real’ life in Barcelona. You will learn more in 4 hours than any typical tourist could learn in a year of pablum spewing tour bus rides.

This was a small group food tour that included 4 different style tapas restaurants, where the local eats. Not only was the food and drinks excellent, the guide was fun and we made friends with the other 3 couples we were with. Lots of lively conversation!!

Barcelona Tapas Tour With Eddy

We enjoyed a wonderful evening in Barcelona with tour guide Eddy on July 26. Eddy was very knowlegeable on the various types of local tapas cuisine and drinks and brought our group to places in Barcelona that we never would have found on our own. The special dishes and drinks he introduced us to in 4 different establishments were totally delicious. Also, Eddy's presentations were so pleasuable that by evening's end my wife and I both felt that we known him for years. We highly recommend this excursion for anyone who visits Barcelona and if Eddy is their guide they'll have a most memorable evening.

Very Fun Evening

This was a very fun evening tour with my husband. Andrea was our guide and she was one of the friendliest, most outgoing and knowledgeable people we’ve ever met. She made everyone comfortable and immediately became a friend. She knows her home town and is obviously very proud of it. She took us to 4 bars where we had an awesome selection of tapas and drinks at each one. She is incredible and I highly recommend her and this tour. It was a blast and probably the most fun thing we did in Barcelona.

Great Tapas in an Intimate Small Group Setting

Edy was a amazing guide and showed us lovely tapas restaurants and bars we would not have found otherwise - each spot had its specialty drinks and tapas that gave us a true taste of Barcelona. I appreciated most that it was a small group (9 in total), giving us the chance to ask questions, move at a relaxed pace, and really get to know each other. This was our best evening of our Barcelona visit (and the best meal). I would absolutely take the tour again (especially as Edy mentioned that the itinerary changes from time to time). Thanks Edy for a lovely evening!

Andrea was very friendly and welcoming. Never a dull moment! She took us to the less tourist authentic areas and provided lots of historical information about the food and surrounding areas. On top of the tour she went above and beyond what we thought we had bought as she offered to walk us to where we wanted to go after the tour and answered a lot of questions that we asked about what we could do for the rest of the stay.

Guide was very knowledgeable and informative. Perfect size tour to get to interact with other travelers and able to go to smaller venues. Combined with other guests this was one of the high points on our two weeks in Europe. Highly recommend this to others. Gave a wonderful understanding of the history and culture in Barcelona. Sorry we didn't do others during our cruise locations.
