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.
Final itinerary and timings might vary due to many factors (specially the flamenco show availability and the show times, that change depending no the season).
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.
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.
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.
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.
DURATION: 4 hours
Taxi rides, if any, not included.
Additional. Cost per person.
Charged upon booking
Expect to pay as little as a couple of euros for a “pintxo” to €15 for a platter or the best Spanish ham.

We just returned to Kansas after a wonderful week in Barcelona. The ForeverBarcelona tours were part of the reason our trip was so interesting. Our first evening, Lidia introduced us to tapas and flamenco and explained the street theater which as part of the festival of La Merce.
In addition to seeing the sites, we added the Tapas and Flamenco Tour, which was great!
The Tapas/Flamenco tour was excellent.
