Delicious food in a dynamic group environment

The tour departed promptly at 1pm from Traveler’s Bar. Make sure you aren’t late (but if you are, the bartender can give directions)! Our group had just over 20 people. We moved to the market together. I wish we had spent a bit more time exploring the market; it was a quick in-and-out shopping trip without much explanation/time for pictures. I would love to know how to pick the best seafood ingredients. Once we got to the kitchen we separated into 3 tables which made the group feel smaller. They served us Sangria and tapas while they prepped the kitchen for the cooking class. Although we were a large group, everyone had an opportunity to prep or cook and it was easy to view the cooking even when you weren’t actively participating. While waiting for the paella to cook, they taught us how to prepare Sangria and we had time to chat with the other guests. The food was delicious and the company was charming. Highly recommend this experience!!!

Worth a visit, well set up, but can be crowded

Definitely book in advance and skip the queue. Once in there is series of fish tanks with a great array of different fish. It was crowded when we visited making it difficult to see and you need to jostle a bit. The main tank is great with a clever conveyor belt to stand on so everyone gets a fair turn viewing. Need just about one to one and half hours. Skip the cafeteria nothing special there. Gift shop is just throw away toys (shame).

Our tour guide gave us an almost two hour walking tour!

I would highly recommend this tour. Excellent English, very knowledgeable about Picasso, Picasso’s neighborhood as well as the history if Barcelona from it’s origin, Napoleon times, bombing during WWII, etc! Truly informative , educational and very interesting. And then our tour guide took us into the Picasso museum and shared details about his paintings and other art. Amazing and would highly recommemd!

Great aquarium with great species to observe

Barcelona aquarium was worth visiting. Lot's of different species including octopus (first time seeing them) and rays (my beloved ones). The place is really crowded but everyone has a chance to have a close look at any particular aquarium. For those who are planning the visit, save your time by buying an eticket. The lines are very long and daunting.

Beautiful destination! Unfortunate weather, but refunded the boat!

The day started off rainy in Barcelona, but cleared up as we reached our first destination. Highly recommend! Sweet tour guide, easy to find the pickup. Wish we had a little longer in the first destination. Refunded 10 euros per person because the waters were too rough to go on the boat tour, but still very enjoyable.
