We had a terrific afternoon, wandering the streets of Barcelona with our wonderful guide! She took us to the best shops and gave great history of the area and gastronomy. We also enjoyed the samples of candy, jamon and cheeses. It was a nice small group, so we thoroughly enjoyed our walk and tour - thanks so much!
Wonderful experience!! Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and fun. We learned about the area and it helped us when we returned on our own the next day. Nice variety of food, casual walking pace. Would like to spend more time at the Market and eat more of a variety of food there, but we learned enough to do it on our own. This is perfect introduction to the food and history of the area. Just enough to not be overwhelmed.
