BEST BARCELONA GOURMET WALKING TOUR
Are you into food? Do you love visiting food markets when you travel? And trying local foods? Is finding unique food products one of your favorite things to do?
If you are like me, I always try to add foodie stops to my trips: markets, stores, cafés, eateries… But doing all this research involves a lot of time and planning, and it doesn’t always work out well as one thing is what the blogs and reviews say and the other is reality. Visiting those places with a local that knows her way around is always more fun (and efficient!) than going on your own.
But I’ve been to those food tours where your guide picks the treats and tastings and you never get to choose. Sometimes you don’t like their choices, and often you aren’t able to try that other item you were so curious about. How disappointing!
That’s why our tours are different – we want to be the best food tours in Barcelona. We’ll take you to our favorite stalls in the Boqueria market, but also be happy to detour from our plan to show you something else you spotted on the way. We’ll listen to your preferences and pick what top gourmet stores in the Old Town you’ll enjoy the most visiting, and we’ll take you eating tapas and recommend what to order depending on your taste and interests. A custom food tour just for you!
IS THIS TOUR RIGHT FOR YOU?
This tour is designed for adults interested in local food and, able to walk about 3 miles (5km), divided in several stops with 2 to 10 minutes walk between each other, and not always an opportunity to seat until lunch.
If you have walking issues, we recommend to add a driver (the itinerary will have to be customized in order to make sense).
If you are on a wheelchair, most stores and bars are accessible but some other might have one or two steps at the entrance or not have an adapted toilet. No driver will be needed.
If you are traveling with kids, this tour is child-friendly specially if you plan to treat the kids at some point (there’ll be cake, chocolate and gelato opportunities). There are also tapas that even picky eaters will love.
If you are on a cruise, are a foodie, and you have already been to Barcelona before, this tour is a great way to see the city from a yummy point of view. Just note that pier pick-up and drop-off is not available for walking tours (and it’d be a waste to book a driver just for two rides): we’ll ask you to take a taxi from the pier to meet your tour guide in front of the market.
