Tour Details

Tapas Walking Tour with Flamenco Show

On this tour in Barcelona not only do you get an overview of this fabulous city, you also learn how to order tapas (bar snacks) and discover some of the best bars and cafes Barcelona has to offer.

You will taste Spain's fundamental flavors on this guided walking tour beginning as soon as you meet your knowledgeable guide. Begin the tour with a welcome drink and see the Tours, Tapas, and Friends Gastronomic Center, created under the slow food philosophy and open to offer experiences to "foodies" and travelers who visit Barcelona.

From here you and your guide will go to La Boqueria, the city's famous food market, which offers an array of fresh produce including fruit and vegetables, seafood, cheese and every type of meat imaginable. The tour continues to a restaurant offering a wide selection of local, delicious tapas. Here you will enjoy traditional products, while your food and wine guide provides insights into the flavors of wine, the cuisine and Spanish culture.

Your guided walking tour of La Rambla and the Gothic Quarter includes a stop in a second restaurant for tapas and wine, beer, or cider. Your small group will learn how to order tapas with personalized attention from your guide. After your 3-hour guided walking tour, you will have approximately one and a half hours to explore on your own before heading to your Flamenco show.

Your last stop will be an authentic Flamenco show in a Gothic Palace dating to the 17th century in the heart of one of the trendiest neighborhoods of Barcelona. The bar is absolutely stunning and the surroundings make you feel like you've stepped back in time. It's the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of El Born and unwind with a glass of Cava.

Enjoy this evocative and magical setting in which you can witness the best flamenco in Barcelona while enjoying a drink and the privilege of being in one of the treasures of Catalan Baroque.

Please Note: This tour operates from March through September.

Fascinating and Personalized Trip

Great tour guide, Sebastian. Very informative and professional. The walk through the Jewish quarter was truly a treasure. The flamenco show was an incredible experience and not just a tourist attraction - could feel the performers (dancers, singer and musicians) pouring their soul in their performance! Highly recommend!

We LOVED the Tapas Walking Tour which was led by a culinary expert; we learned quite a bit on our walking tour and then we REALLY experienced the tapas in the (included) tapas meal which was delicious! The meal was wonderful and we also enjoyed talking with the tourists from other countries who were on our tour. Out guide was so helpful and information---and cheery!
