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. 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. You will be provided with a tasting of 3 selected Spanish products, cheese, cured meats and olive oil, along with bread and a drink.
Your guided walking tour of La Rambla and the Gothic Quarter includes a stop in a restaurant for tapas and wine, beer or cider. Your small group will learn how to order tapas with personalized attention from your guide.
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 second restaurant offering a wide selection of local, delicious tapas. Here you will enjoy five tapas with a glass of wine or beer, while your food and wine guide provides insights into the flavors of wine, the cuisine and Spanish culture.
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.

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!
Great tour, very informational and historical.
