Top 3 highlight of our 3 weeks in Spain!
, Sep 2021
Greta made this a memorable and super fun experience! We had 3 others in our class who happened to be from the same area in California, which also made this experience so much fun! But Greta encouraged the laughter and fun, taught us the history of tapas and different regions’ specialties, and we got hands on cooking instruction of the Spanish tortilla (omlette), paella, and Crema (like creme brûlée)…and the wine flowed! We will definitely be signing up for online classes with Greta!

We never went on this! We had to cancel due to COVID. We tried to re-schedule for October, but then due to COVID again we could not travel to Barcelona to do this. I have been requesting a refund since October 1st.......No one has responded to me about a refund! I would have to say my whole experience has been terrible. Your communication is awful and non responsive. These are unprecedented times and you should re-consider policies and provide reimbursements. At least communicate. I will never recommend this to anyone, in fact I will go on an all out campaign to let people know how terrible our experience has been.

Hello, I am so sorry to hear that, I have looked for you in my inbox and I cannot find your message with a cancelation. I can't see all your info so I don't your email and I have a lot of Deborah. Since March we have refund all the clients who have asked for it because Viator does it automatically. If you have asked for I don't understand why it didn't work. Is it possible that you asked to change the date? Sometimes if you do that and then you don't ask to change the date again with the new booking it looks like an activity that has finished and we don't receive the new messages. If that is your case you have until March 2021 to do it. You will have to contact us to I hope it was helpful, I look forward to hear from you. Hola, me sabe muy mal lo que comentas, pues no me consta ningún mensaje tuyo de petición de cancelación. Tampoco se quién eres, pues no me salen tus datos completos y hay varias Deborah. Desde marzo toda persona que ha solicitado un reembolso se le ha dado, pues es una política que aplicaba Viator, ni siquiera nosotros, por lo que no entiendo porque si lo has solicitado no te lo han dado. Otra cosa es que aceptaras cambiar la fecha de la reserva y luego decidieras volver a cambiarla y no hayas avisado o no nos haya llegado el mensaje desde la aplicación de Viator al salir como una actividad ya hecha. En ese caso, igualmente tienes hasta marzo del 2022 para poder hacer esta actividad. Eso sí, te tienes que poner en contacto con nosotros directamente al email Espero haber podido ser de ayuda. Gracias, un saludo cordial.
Fantastic Food in Barcelona

Outstanding class with a great chef. Each course was prepared with the understanding not everyone is a professional chef. Great cooking and eating space. Would do it again without hesitation.

Cooking Class

Wonderful class in a beautiful location. This class began with a walk to La Boqueria, where we were able to see the ingredients we would use. We started with tapas and then began to make paella for our main course. Dessert was crema catalana. We were able to taste some of the foods Barcelona is famous for, potatoes bravas, jamon, manchego cheese, paella and crema catalana. We were served a delicious white wine throughout the class and enjoyed our dinner. The chef, Alfredo and his assistant/ translator Janelle were informative and fun. The food was terrific. I would highly recommend this tour.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the 4 hours spent with Jenelle at the Barcelona cooking class . A great combination of education, fun, and eating/drinking. A great way to embrace the culture of Catalan.

Fantastic and fun cooking class with Chef Alfredo and Janella. The class starts in the city center, then moves to the Boqueria to learn about the market and then returns to the Royal BCN apartment to cook, eat and drink. The tapas and paella were amazing. I would highly recommend the class. If you have any fish or dairy allergies, it's advisable to let them know ahead of time as they are super accommodating and can adjust the menu to accommodate. Don't plan lunch or early tapas after the class, it's so much food. Also - adolescents are welcome. I brought my 15 year old son who has a strong interest in cooking and he also enjoyed it. I'd ask before bringing children under that age.

This is my second time taking this class with Alfredo and Janella. This is a MUST SEE EXPERIENCE when traveling to Barcelona. Janella takes you to La Boqueria Market. You walk around the market and learn about the history and the vendors who are there. Amazing to see the fresh fruits, vegetables, meats, and the care that the vendors take in presenting their wares. Next, you go back to the workshop. A beautiful space that is set up and designed for dining and cooking. You meet Alfredo, who has prepared appetizers that take you to all of the regions of Spain. You are given a history lesson, while you eat and drink good wine. Next, you cook. You chop, you stir, you cream, you eat, you laugh, you drink, you laugh some more and when you're done, you have this beautiful paella, catalan creme and new friends! Do not pass up this experience. It is worth it to return to Barcelona just for this experience--which is what I did!
