TOUR FAQ

  • THIS PRIVATE CHOCOLATE TOUR RUNS: Monday through Saturday, in the morning.
    WEAKEST DAYS:
    Monday: the Boqueria Market is only partially open.
    August: many stores are closed for holidays. The tour can still be run, but the food options won’t be as exciting…
    NOT AVAILABLE: Sunday and local bank holidays. Afternoons.
  • TOUR LENGHT.
    – Express Tour: 1.5 hours (3 stops).
    – Standard tour: 4 hours.
    – Premium tour: 6 hours (standard itinerary + chocolate tasting at a local gourmet chocolate store).
  • RECOMMENDED STARTING TIME: Anytime between 9AM and 10AM. 
  • WHERE DO WE MEET? Your accommodation in Barcelona.
  • WHERE DO WE END? Born district or near Passeig de Gracia, depending on where we started.
  • HOW DO WE MOVE AROUND? This tour is 100% a walking tour.
  • ARE ANY TASTINGS INCLUDED? No: This is not a cookie cutter tour. We want to provide the most unique tour for you – not a template that anyone can copy. Some people want to try everything, while other are more selective. Some love white chocolate, some like dark… This tour should be a treat for you, so it doesn’t make sense to pre-select the treats before meeting you. It’s way more fun if you can chose every time what you taste. It’s also OK to not eat anything at all and later on go back to your favorite stops to buy or eat at your own pace (or not).
  • WILL YOU PUSH US TO MAKE PURCHASES AT THE STORES? Never. The stores we chose don’t give commissions to tour guides. We choose them because they are great local 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. You choose where you want to spend your money (or not to).
  • SHOULD I SKIP BREAKFAST? It’s up to you: some guests skip breakfast so they can have some chocolate and churros during the tour (make sure to let your tour guide know if that’s your choice!). If you choose to have breakfast at the hotel, we recommend to have a light breakfast (specially if you think you’ll want to eat and buy food during the tour).
  • WILL I NEED LUNCH AFTER THE TOUR? Probably yes, but something light. This tour does not involve a lunch stop. If you’ll need to stop for lunch during the tour, please book one extra hour.
  • HOW DOES THE EXPRESS TOUR WORK? This is a shortened version of our standard itinerary. You’ll be taken to an old fashioned hot chocolate and churros café in Barcelona, an awesome gelato parlor, and taste one of the best chocolate cakes in the world.
  • HOW DOES THE TASTING IN THE PREMIUM TOUR WORK? The chocolate tasting takes place in a specialty cacao shop, and during it 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… and of course, you’ll eat more chocolates!

CAN THIS CHOCOLATE TOUR CATER SPECIAL DIETS?

  • Vegetarian (ovo-lacto) are welcome. It’s not difficult to find vegetarian-friendly chocolates in Barcelona, but it’s best you let us know in advance.
  • Vegan are harder to cater. We definitely need to know in advance to plan accordingly.
  • Gluten-free can be accommodated if you can handle crossed-contamination and traces.
  • Celiac is VERY hard to accommodate as in most businesses they aren’t trained to keep your food safe. We can probably organize an express chocolate tour for you, though. Please let us know before booking.
  • Other food allergies and diets, please check with us before booking so we can assess your options and risks.

REVIEWS FROM TRAVELERS LIKE YOU:

“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.”
