Opinions

Telmo

A 100% amazing tapas tour in Barcelona. We booked the Tapas Tour experience with this company, and it couldn't have gone better. They took us to places away from the crowded tourist areas, and all the bars we visited were very special and authentic. The quality of the tapas surprised us. What we liked the most was the guide; we ended up becoming friends and exchanging phone numbers. Highly recommended. 100%

We booked a private tapas tour and enjoyed every moment of it. Diego took excellent care of us, and we had the opportunity to sample exquisite tapas and wine. It was so fantastic that we also scheduled a winery visit with them. They took us to a magnificent bodega where we had a memorable tour with a guided tasting paired with a delicious lunch just for us.
