This was our favorite tour with Josep. We started with a wonderful cocktail at a local bar and we were off for an evening of tapas and wine. Every place we stopped was wonderful and Josep was great company as well.

I had a fantastic day with Josep where he combined eating and a bit of sightseeing. I enjoyed sampling so many different food from oysters to ham. He also took the time to help me shop for souvenirs.

5 our of 5! A great guy who had perfect English and knew a lot of interesting history about La Rambla and the gothic quarter, who took us to places we wouldn't have found on our own. Not cheap but worth every Euro! Highly recommend doing this tour early in your stay so you can go back to your favourite places!

Josep did an excellent job. The ear buds were great because we could walk apart and hear his commentary. The Taps tour was very well structured, informative and moved at just the right pace. Each place we stopped for tapas had a great selection. Josep's recommendations and explanations were very helpful. There was always something for everyone to choose in our party of 6. We would recommend Josep for anyone wanting to take a tapas tour in Barcelona. Enjoy!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Ted! Thank you for your excellent comments and review on behalf of the 6 of you. I am very happy that you all found it so satisfactory. Have an excellent summer. All the best. Josep

We were tired after a long day but he helped make the walk and the meals and the tour easy and informative. We tried some new local tapas and experienced some of the local culture.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your excellent review! I t was a please having hosted you in Barcelona Plenty of good food awaits you for the next visit! All the best Josep

Joep took us on a delicious tapas tour, introducing us to bars and restaurants we never would have discovered on our own. It was unique way to explore the Gothic Quarter at night and learn about the history. He's very charming and also offered advice about touring Barcelona.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Deborah for your review. Hope to see you soon again in Barcelona. Best regards Josep
Josep showed my family and friends around a selection of the Barcelona food scene. His WiFi technology meant we could all hear his interesting narrative which related the surroundings to history and current affairs, while still being able to take photos and window shop. He introduced us to the delights of tapas and a wonderful selection of wines that exceeded our expectations, and did so in way that made it easy for us to find our way back later in our holiday.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Lisa, I thank you for the excellent reviews of the 3 Tours we have just done together! That was certainly a pleasure having had the 6 of you in Barcelona for 3 days in a row. You know that I love what I do but such reviews coming from experienced travelers like you really motivate me even further. Best regards to you all. Josep P

Josep gave us a perfect introduction to Barcelona on our first day in the city. He made available a small, very comfortable listening device for each of us, which allowed us to hear him even though we are not standing/walking close to him. It made it very easy to hear him even at very noisy and crowded places. Each of us can walk at our own pace, stop and take pictures without missing a word of Josep's excellent narrative. He was very knowledgeable and flexible based on our family interests. A++
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Fiona and family! It was most enjoyable having had you all, yesterday as my guests in Barcelona I really appreciate your excellent review Have an excellent stay in Spain My best regards Josep Josep
