Our Foodie Tour
Markets, food shops and tapas. Is there a better plan?
This tour has been designed for food lovers. If you are passionate about eating and drinking and shopping for food products, don’t miss it when you come to Barcelona!
Our tours are private tours for your party only. No strangers joining your tours.
In 4 hours we’ll cover:
Comprehensive tour of the Boqueria Market (30min)
Best gourmet stores in the Old Town (1.5h)
2-3 Tapas Bars (2h)
Transportation: 100% walking tour.
Tour is available Mon-Sat.
Monday is the weakest day as some bars are closed and the Boqueria Market is only partially active.
In August many places are closed for holidays: the tour can still be run, but variety won’t be as exciting…
Recommended starting times: 9 or 10am (morning tour only – no tour in the afternoon).
The Boqueria Food Market is said to be one of the best food markets in the whole world. The displays of the products in the stands are exceptional, and the variety of local and exotic food is unique. Fruits and veggies, meat and fish, beans and eggs, great tapas bars, proud vendors… We’ll show you around so you don’t miss any of its secrets!
Next we’ll stroll around the Old Town stopping in some of the best food stores: from 100yo shops that keep all the charm of the old times, to modern venues with top quality products.
The shop owners and workers are usually very proud of their business and are happy to welcome people into their shops even if you aren’t going to buy anything, so don’t be shy and enjoy the experience of getting in touch with our city’s food treasures!
Finally we’ll stop at a couple of tapas bars to try different specialties (meat & sausages, cheese & ham, fish and seafood, veggies and eggs. . . ) cooked in different ways (fried, steamed, grilled. . . ), as well as to drink local beers, wine, cider, sangria, cava (our local sparkling)…
Tapas plates can be small as appetizers or big as a starter. We’ll order several in each place and share. Come with an empty stomach!
WHY FOOD & DRINKS ARE NOT INCLUDED?
Some people are adventurous eaters, while some other would rather stay in their safe comfort area; some love expensive wines, while other prefer beer. This tour should be a treat for you, so it doesn’t make sense that we make you eat a set tapas menu for a certain amount per person. It’s way more fun if you can chose every time what you want to eat and drink.
