The city's first gastronomical tapas tour, The Barcelona Taste is about food. And lots of it! On this 2-3 hour food tour we stop in 3-4 small food establishments in either the famous Gothic or the lovely Gracia neighborhoods of Barcelona.

Our venues range from high-quality specialty shops to home-style tapas restaurants, each one with its own scrumptious specialties for you to taste.

A knowledgeable and very friendly guide will safely lead you through this labyrinth of a neighborhood, all the while sharing stories about Barcelona life, food, and history. You will enjoy all the cuisine, and, due to the small size of the group, you will also enjoy a more personal, relaxed experience.

We did this on a Tuesday night , with Anna as our charming guide. The food was excellent, we received a good beginners understanding to how tapas works in Barcelona, and importantly discovered much about this interesting and richly cultured city. What a great introduction to the city

The night started off with some wonderful sampling of cheeses at a local shop paired with some excellent wine. We continued on to some local tapas dishes and finally excellent deserts. Every stop included excellent and sufficient amounts of local wines, vermouth, and beer. Anna was a joy as she guided us through the cuisine, culture of Barcelona and our... More

Larea, our guide, was warm and very knowledgeable about Spanish food and wine. Only 6 in our group gave the tour a sense of being out with friends even though we had just met. The tapas were varied and delicious at the 3 establishments we visited. Larea very promptly emailed me a listing of other restaurants and tapas places to... More

My husband and I took the Gotico tour with Jo on an October Saturday night. It was an excellent introduction to tapas and Barcelona as we had just arrived in Barcelona that day. Jo did an excellent job of explaining what we were eating, how to order, and the different types of tapas shops. Jo ordered a variety of foods... More

We spent a delightful evening with Tito, our guide, and two other couples exploring Barcelona's tapas bar scene. Great tapas & wine, delightful intro to the culture & history of Barcelona. Tito was a charming host who answered many questions about the history & culture of Barcelona while keeping the group together as we wandered the back streets. This was... More

I'm so glad we followed everyone's advice and booked the Gotico tour with Barcelona Taste on our first night in the city. We had had a rough travel day and weren't feeling the BCN love just yet but our guide Tito and the well-done tour turned that around! It's a great introduction to a charming section of the city and... More

This tour was nicely laid out with a variety of foods and drinks to try. We would have never found these great places on our own. I was very satisfied with the entire evening and our wonderful tour guide. She expressed a great love of Barcelona and all it has to offer. I highly recommend this tour for a great... More

Hola! We loved our tapas tour! We had hoped to be able to take this tour on the the first day we were in Barcelona but due to popular demand, and maybe a little procrastination at our end, we could only take the tour on the last day of our time there. It also happened to be the last day... More

We signed up for this tour the first night we arrived in Barcelona. It was a great way to start our trip. Lorea was a wonderful guide, and took us to four places - a charming cheese shop, a tapas place and few bodegas and introduced us to several different foods, flavors and wines (or vermouth) at each place.

Neighbourhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)

It blends historic artifacts from its days under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and authentic culinary experiences.
