Once you book your tour, we will work with you individually to make you feel most comfortable in our city. You will be provided with a map and all the necessary details. It is very easy! We are here for your culinary pleasures and not for the stress of getting around. To make it easier, the tour ends in the same location unless you wish to depart individually from our last tasting.The only tour that will start in different location is GOURMET SAILBOAT TRIP BARCELONA. You will be provided with all the details at the time of booking.

When is the best time to take the tour?
Barcelona is a culinary and weather heaven all year round. There is always perfect time to eat! If there is a possibility, we strongly suggest avoiding July and August due to overwhelming number of tourists. However, if this is the only possibility, please do not be discouraged! We will make sure you still have a great time! Also, if possible, we highly recommend taking our food tours at the beginning of your visit so you can have plenty of time to return to you favorite food places and try out our other recommendations. Since tours usually are taken well in advance, please kindly consider your booking as early as possible.
What about taking children on the tour?
Please look for more details in the individual tour descriptions. For some tours, we do offer both adults and children tickets. Some tours are for adults only. The tours range around 3 hours in length. As some children have a limited attention span, the tour may not be appropriate for all of them. We kindly ask that the Parents look at the situation individually. There is some standing and walking, so please consider this when deciding whether the tour is appropriate for your child. If you are bringing an infant or a young child and they will not be participating in the tasting, you do not need to purchase a ticket for them. However, please do let us know about it when you make a reservation.
