About Barcelona Culinary Backstreets Walks
Our small group food tours of Barcelona are designed to showcase the best of the city's hidden culinary gems and historic back alleys. Our walks take place in the friendly and laid-back Gracia neighborhood, stronghold of the Catalan kitchen, and in the seaside El Born-La Ribera and Barceloneta districts, where life seems to be imbued with the easygoing maritime soul of the nearby Mediterranean. Sampling a mix of truly local markets, restaurants, bars and food shops -- as well as some select cultural and historical stops -- our two Barcelona culinary walks take you into parts of town and authentic places that would be hard to find on your own and provide a unique (and delicious) introduction to daily life in Barcelona. You can view our updated safety measures at https://culinarybackstreets.com/our-commitment/

Our guide, Paula, and the bacalao for lunch were the best. She was a font of knowledge about Barcelona food, wine, and history.

We loved the Bodega tour and recommend this to everyone who plans to visit Barcelona! We have visited Barcelona many times but had never experienced meeting and interacting with shop keepers, bar owners, and restaurateurs. Cristina is a wealth of knowledge, not just about wine, but the history and the culture of Barcelona. She brought us to the most wonderful, small, intimate bodegas where we learned something new at each one. She seemed like an old friend just showing us around her city. Often a tourist can feel hesitant to enter some of the smaller bodegas and bars but after visiting so many and being made to feel so welcome, we started seeking out little hole in the wall places by ourselves and felt just as welcomed. We actually visited three of the same bars again, on our own after the tour! I cannot recommend this highly enough, and will definitely schedule another tour (probably a food tour) on my next vacation.

Backstreets is the best way to familiarize yourself with the food, geography, culture and history of the area. We have taken Backstreets in other countries and the experience has always enriched our knowledge as well as our stomachs.
