Experience the bustle of a local market, make your own pan amb tomaquet, watch chefs at work, visit a traditional artisan’s store, and try drinking from a traditional porron vessel during this interactive tour.
Why Book With Us?
- All inclusive price. Your 119 euros covers all food and drink in the tour description, expert guide, plus all taxes, booking fees etc.
- We are local. Our small team has been living in Barcelona for over 25 years in total. We support local farmers, market traders, bodegas / restaurants, and stores, and everything you taste on the tour has been grown and/or produced in Barcelona, Catalonia or Spain. Our company is registered and pays taxes here in Spain.
- Sustainability. Because we taste only regional and Spanish products our tour has a low carbon footprint. Furthermore our tour takes part in one of the least touristic districts in the city – Sant Antoni. In recent years this central district has evolved from a purely residential district to home of several gastronomical trends (vermouth renaissance, hipster cafes, and creative tapas – this is where the Adria brothers opened all five of their new Barcelona restaurants) and is the most interesting place to eat and drink in the city today. By avoiding the touristic areas you are avoiding congestion, and are part of a sustainable way of travelling, instead of contributing to the problems of mass tourism in Barcelona.
- New kids on the block. We are the latest food tour to launch in Barcelona… and for that reason we have gone out of way to design what we believe is the very best food experience in the city! Otherwise what would be the point 😉
