What to Expect
Your culinary tour begins in central Barcelona, where you greet your guide and small group limited to 12 people. Awaken your taste buds with coffee and a traditional Catalan pastry, xuixo, and head to a family-run deli to sample meat and cheeses. Continue to Santa Caterina Market—a less-crowded alternative to La Boqueria Market—to learn about local produce before doing more tastings in the Born area, where one of the stops is to a shop that’s been open for more than 150 years. Then, head to Barcelona’s fisherman’s quarter to sip vermouth in a tapas bar before tucking into home-cooked paella. Your guide teaches you about traditions, like drinking from a porron, and festivals. The tour concludes here.

Hi there! Thanks so much for leaving a review. We really appreciate it. Jessica loves giving the Tapas, Taverns and History tour. She gets to talk about her city for a few hours!
