    If you prefer, we can stay in our favorite chocolate store to take a private chocolate tasting where you’ll learn about the chocolate making process, the differences between chocolate, truffle and praliné, and how to taste chocolate as if you were in a wine tasting.

    This activity will be in stead of the walk around the Eixample district, unless you decide to book an extra hour so there is time for everything.

This tour is perfect for any chocolate lover, as long as you can cover 1.5 to 2.5 miles (2.5 to 4km) in one morning, with frequent stops after 5 to 10 minutes of walk (but not always an opportunity to seat.

If you have children, this tour is perfect for them! But you might also want to check out our Sweet Barcelona Tour.

If you love chocolate AND wine, don’t miss our Wine & Chocolate tour.

If you have walking issues, we recommend to add a driver (the itinerary will have to be customized in order to make sense).

PRACTICAL INFORMATION

  • Tour length: 4 hours, with possibility of adding extra hours on request upon booking.
  • Tastings are not included.
  • Transportation from your hotel and back are is not included. Taxi rides range around €6 to €12.
  • The final stores and facilities visited might vary depending on their opening hours and vacations, as well as your favorite products. Our guides can often improvise the itinerary depending on what they consider you’ll enjoy the most.

AT THE SHOPS

The shop owners and assistants are usually very proud of their business and are happy to welcome people into their shops even if you aren’t going to buy anything, so don’t be shy and enjoy the experience of enjoying the best chocolate in Barcelona! (And no: we don’t get commissions for taking you there, either)

WHY ARE TASTINGS NOT INCLUDED?

Some people are adventurous eaters, while some other would rather stay in their safe comfort area; some love expensive stuff, while other prefer cheap and simple. This tour should be a treat for you, so it doesn’t make sense that we enforce a closed budget to include a number of set tastings that you might or might not enjoy. It’s way more fun if you can chose every time what you want to taste. You can even NOT eat anything at all and later on go back to your favorite stops to buy or eat at your own pace.

We had so much fun with Marta and our chocolate tasting tour was more than expected. Our family of 7 had the best time touring Barcelona and sampling sweet things along the way. We loved every minute of it!

The chocolate tour gave us a sense of the lighter side of Barcelona. I use the term “lighter” advisedly. The voracious consumption of chocolate first thing in the morning is hardly the way to a “lighter” anything. But the tour was fun and interesting. The chocolates were marvelous. Javier was a master and his tour worth every Euro.
