The city's first gastronomical tapas tour, The Barcelona Taste is about food. And lots of it! On this 2-3 hour food tour we stop in 3-4 small food establishments in either the famous Gothic or the lovely Gracia neighborhoods of Barcelona. Our venues range from high-quality specialty shops to home-style tapas restaurants, each one with its own scrumptious specialties for you to taste. A knowledgeable and very friendly guide will safely lead you through this labyrinth of a neighborhood, all the while sharing stories about Barcelona life, food, and history. You will enjoy all the cuisine, and, due to the small size of the group, you will also enjoy a more personal, relaxed experience.

We highly recommend the Gothic Tapas Tour. We visited three delightful bodegas that we would have never found on our own. The food and drink were fantastic. We even tried Vermuth, which none in our group had ever tried before. Our guide for the evening...More

Tito was an amazing guide, a true Calalan foodie! The group size of six makes for great conversation around a table laden with food that keeps magically appearing. Short walks between venues highlight culture, point out "don't miss" sights, and help make room for the...More
