I try to get to know the gastronomic culture of each city I visit and I decided to book this tour since I was going to spend a few days in Barcelona. 100% RECOMMENDABLE!! It is a relaxed and very interesting walk through two markets in Barcelona and El Barrio is beautiful. Alex is very friendly and explained everything to us very well. I loved!!! Next time I will also book the paella workshop! :)
