We really enjoyed this evening and the flamenco dancing was an amazing experience. The food was nice and the sangria was good too. The service was good and they checked whether we needed more drinks at any point and happily refilled our sangria. Great experience and would definitely recommend.

We had a great time walking the streets of Barcelona, and getting to know its history a little bit more. Our tour guide Pablo was great. No only we learnt about the place, we got to enjoy some delicious tapas and experience a great Flamenco show. Totally recommend this tour.

My first experience watching Flamenco and it was fun and mesmerizing. Would definitely recommend this to others. Good one..!!!

Great sangria, and the performers were all so incredibly talented — we couldn’t tear our eyes away from them for a second!

Nice show, it should be include in your itinerary while visiting Barcelona.
