The first tour we booked when arriving in Barcelona was the Tapas Walking Tour. Javier was wonderful. We went to 4 tapas bars in the City Center. The owners obviously like him based on the way they greeted him. Each location was planned to pair wine with our tapas. What a great way to understand the gastronomy of Spain and get a tour of Barcelona. We recommended this tour to other USA tourists. A great value tour and meal.

Javier met my friend and I for a Barcelona Neighborhoods and Tapas Tour which was fabulous. Javier could have cancelled due to the small number 2 but instead he gave us a truly great personalized experience! He listened to our interests and crafted a tour just for us.
