On this Barcelona food tour, we`ll take you right to the historic centre of the old city of Barcelona, together we`ll have a walk in Gothic Quarter. First tapas experience of the evening is in an historical bar, where we’ll taste a “filling bomb” and a cold local beer.  The next place awaits us as we navigate our way through one of the most beautiful squares of the Gothic Quarter and its adjacent small streets that still retain their old medieval ambiance. Our next stop is a family-owned bar where we’ll taste Catalan cold cuts and “pa amb tomàquet” (bread with tomato) accompanied by a nice glass of white or red wine (as you do!). Our Barcelona tapas tour continues to the heart of the old Jewish Quarter. Next up is a hidden, charming, typical Bodega (with a fantastic cellar), where you can have a “vermut” (vermouth) or “cava” and indulge in the home-made croquettes and other typical tapas (you can expect “patatas bravas”, “padrón peppers”, sausage in cider sauce and bread with tomato). Before we take you to the last drink stop, we will treat you with a surprise local sweet. Then, on the way to the last venue, we’ll see the Cathedral or even a giant work by Picasso before vanishing again in the labyrinth of narrow streets. We’ll walk then in a very local and traditional Vermouth cellar where of course you will get a glass or Vermouth or local “pincho”. It is a must to taste.  Throughout this Barcelona tour you will discover new tastes, flavors, and dishes. Your guide will give you insights into local gastronomic specialties and anecdotes of the city's history and local neighborhood life. Eating tapas is one of the best things to do in Barcelona, no doubt about that, and a great way to connect with the daily lives of the locals. At some point during this tour, you will likely meet some of the local characters in the Old Town and perhaps even get drawn into a conversation or two. You never know what the evening has in store!
