Barcelona Food Tours
The Joys of Genuine Local Cuisine
Being from Barcelona we could not forget about food. When we stroll around the city with friends and family, we often end up sampling some tapas and sharing conversation about the day. For that reason, all our tours include some high quality food and beverage element to create authentic, encompassing experiences. For example our Gaudí Tour includes tapas on an elegant terrace facing La Sagrada Familia, and the Free Walking Tour offers a free cold drink. We also offer a gastronomic experience in the Tapas Tour Barcelona that will take you through 12 tapas in three highly regarded tapas restaurants.
