Tapas Tastings with an Expert
"Our tour was fabulous. Our guide knew the history and food of Barcelona, and her knowledge was unbelievable. We visited several food venues that were different and unusual. We would have never found these on our own. She asked us what we liked and did not like, but we trusted her to order for us so as to expand our experience."
