Barcelona Gourmet Tapas Tour
A charming evening of creative
tapas and quality wines in our favorite secret spots.
Increasingly since the 1992 Olympics, Barcelona has become a cosmopolitan
city, attracting individuals from around the world, who bring with them
fresh ideas and their own gastronomic traditions. These worldly influences
coupled with Barcelona’s newfound trendiness and creative vibe,
collide with the city’s classic Spanish-Catalan-Mediterranean cuisine
and you’re left with an eclectic and sometimes exotic array of innovative
and delicious dining options, from high-end Michelin-star establishments,
to small, off-the-beaten-track tapas joints.
Take part in a classy tapas bar-hopping experience and learn about the
history of tapas and their evolution, in Barcelona, into a designer, hip,
and healthy phenomenon. You'll enjoy elaborate treats, from candied duck
and zucchini ‘carpaccio’, to Iberian ham, and seared tuna.
You’ll also sample some of the well-known regional wines and bubbly
‘cava’: Catalunya’s pride and joy.
This experience includes your private, informational tour in three
different hole-in-the-wall tapas bars, in three separate neighborhoods,
from the historic and picturesque Gothic Quarter to the glamorous Born,
now one of Barcelona's most fashionable shopping districts by day and
busiest drinking and dining areas by night. The abundant selection of
high quality, stylish tapas and drinks is not included, so you'll pay as
you go and see how much you're able to consume along the way.
Keep in mind, these are local
joints, where we or any Barcelona
native would eat, and tourists would unlikely find on their own. In
order to make sure you get a full and rich experience, we generally
recommend various dishes and drinks to order, however, we are flexible
depending on your specific likes and dislikes, which you can discuss
with us or your guide.
There’s no need to dress formally for this tour. The food is contemporary
and upscale, but the atmosphere is friendly and casual
Our tapas tours are as much about “the experience” as
they are about the food and are led by individuals from our regular team
of historical guides. If you’re looking for a more in-depth culinary
informational experience, we recommend you check out our “Mediterranean
Gourmet” experience or the “Delectable
Catalan Feast”, each led by culinary experts and chefs.
We highly recommend
you read our General

what to expect. Please feel free to propose your own personal twist on
