Description

Our flamenco and tapas tour:
The best evening plan

Are there things more Spanish than tapas & flamenco? And isn’t it what you want to experience during your trip to Spain? Traditional food and music make for a wonderful evening plan!

And while many will tell you that’s Spanish clichés that have nothing to do with the Catalan culture, that’s not quite true: both are somehow linked to the local history and reality. Discover how with your private guide and spend a memorable night eating at some great Barcelona tapas bars and seeing a flamenco show with your local tour guide. A great mix of local food and music that will be a highlight of your trip.

  • Meet your guideTAPAS HOPING

    Meet your tourguide in the Old Town (or at your location if that’s more convenient, then head to the Old Town), where you’ll be taken on a stroll around its medieval alleys stopping in a couple of small authentic tapas bars to enjoy some great local food. Your guide will help you choosing the best specialties, translating and ordering, and you’ll hear stories about how tapas were invented.

  • GIPSY PASSIONSPANISH FLAMENCO SHOW

    After that, you’ll be taken to a Flamenco place (tablao) where you’ll be able to enjoy the show and a drink. Please note that depending on that night seats availability your guide might not be allowed to seat with you during the show, but she’ll stay nearby in case you need her.

    The Andalusian community of Barcelona has always worked to preserve their roots, which has given place to one of the most important Flamenco schools in Spain. Unfortunately, Barcelona locals don’t really feel it as their own thing, and they don’t often hang out in tablaos, that have remained a tourist activity even when the quality of the shows is outstanding.
    A very professional and prestigious show offering the essential flamenco: a variety of “palos” (styles) ranging from sad and dramatic to passionate and frenetic. Singers, guitars players and dancers evolve in a stage, wearing the traditional black for men and colorful frilled flamenco dresses for the ladies. The show we choose for our tours is considered to offer one of the finest in town.

  • TOUR ENDS

    After the show is over, your tour guide will help you taking a taxi back to the hotel or give you directions if you want to walk or continue enjoying a night out.

Approximate area where this tour will take you:

IS THIS TOUR RIGHT FOR YOU?

This tour is designed for adults interested in food, music and dance, able to walk about 1 mile (1.5km), divided in 2 or 3 stops.

Be prepared to finish the tour late at night: starting much earlier isn’t a good option as most tapas bars aren’t open yet and your options wouldn’t be as exciting.

If a late night tour isn’t an option for you, we suggest you take a lunchtime tapas tour, and go to an early flamenco show on your own.

SPECIAL DIETS

  • Vegetarian (ovo-lacto) are welcome. It’s not difficult to improvise some veggie tapas in Barcelona, but it’s best you let us know in advance.
  • Vegan are harder to cater. We definitely need to know in advance to plan accordingly.
  • Gluten-free can be accommodated if you can handle crossed-contamination and traces.
  • Celiac is VERY hard to accommodate as in most restaurants they aren’t trained to keep your food safe. We might have to limit the tapas stops to one single bar in the area we know to be safe.
  • Kosher food is hard to find in Barcelona: I’m afraid we can’t provide a tapas tour that thoroughly respects kosher rules. We can, though, organize a no-pork no-seafood tapas tour if that’s OK with you.
  • Halal food is easier to find, but unfortunately it’s mostly Middle-Eastern cuisine. I’m afraid we can’t provide either a strictly halal tapas tour. We can, though, organize a no-pork no-seafood tapas tour if that’s OK with you.
  • Other food allergies and diets, please check with us before booking so we can assess your options and risks.

PRACTICAL INFORMATION

  • Tour length: 4 hours.
  • Different bars might be visited each time: the guides have freedom to choose the ones they believe will suit best their guests’ taste. If you have a special place you want to try, please let us know in advance so we can plan accordingly.
  • Taxi rides from and back to your hotel are not included. The typical taxi rides is around €6 to €15.
  • Food & drinks are not included. Expect to pay as little as a couple of euros for a “pintxo” to €15 for a platter or the best Spanish ham.

Why food and drinks are not included?

We want to provide the most unique tour for you – not a template that anyone can copy: 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. Learn more about this here.
