Overview
Barcelona’s tourist trails don’t always give the best insight into typical Spanish dining. Enjoy a true tapas experience with a local guide, who leads you to bodegas off the beaten track for a taste of authentic Barcelona. Wander through El Raval and El Poble-sec, enjoying four free wines or aperitifs along the way. Benefit from the small-group size to receive personalized recommendations for the rest of your trip.

What to Expect
Begin your tour at a central location in Barcelona. Meet your local guide and small group and then head to a nearby terrace bar off the beaten track, deciding between sausage (botifarra) and tomato-bread puree (salmorejo) for your first sample of traditional tapas. When you’re finished, wander on through quieter streets, soon arriving at another bodega. Sample its cured meats and cheeses, and choose between a glass of red or white wine. Then, continue on a “vermuteria,” and savor a typical Spanish omelet, along with a glass of vermouth or tinto de verano, a simpler version of the sangria. As you stroll to your next stop in the neighboring El Poble-sec, immerse yourself in its lively, authentic atmosphere, away from the tourist trails. Arrive to your last stop, and select a Basque snack (pintxo) to enjoy with a final class of cava. Finish your tour by the nearby Parallel Street metro station.

Some of the streets and neighborhoods we most loved in Barcelona were first seen on our tour with Eddy. Tucked away in Poble Sec or El Raval, little places we mightn't have found on our own drew us back for return meals. The sequence of food items and drinks at each stop were
