Enjoy a fantastic evening of wining and dining at some of the most authentic eateries in Barcelona!
Your tour starts in the late afternoon when you meet your small group of no more than 15 people and your local guide in front one of city’s most beloved local markets. Your first stop is an olive oil shop to taste five different olive oils and learn why it’s considered a superfood in the Mediterranean. Next, you’ll head over to a local charcutería, the Spanish word for "deli", that has been feeding the neighborhood for decades. Here you’ll try an assortment of gourmet local cheeses and charcuterie, including chorizo and the famous Iberian ham. You’ll also learn how to drink from a traditional Catalan pitcher called a porró.
The next stop is a little stand that has been a Barcelona institution since opening in 1920. Here you can get an ice-cold horchata, a sweet drink made from nuts that is beloved throughout Spain and Mexico. Leaving the neighborhood of Sant Antoni, you’ll enter the vibrant barrio of Poble Sec and make your way down a buzzing pedestrian street to a pintxos bar which specializes in a style of tapas originating in the Basque Country. Choose two from their extensive spread and wash them down with a complimentary glass of txakoli, a specialty sparkling wine from the Basque country.
Before heading to your final stop of the night, yiou have a little surprise. You’ll catch a streetcar to the top of Montjuïc for incredible views over the city and sea. As the sun sets, you’ll transfer to a cable car that takes you down from the mountain and into the port, where, just like a local, you'll grab a quick glass of vermouth, before heading over to a paella restaurant. It’s not just a great meal that awaits you: As you feast on steaming plates of seafood paella and tapas with a complimentary glass of sangría, you’ll be treated to an intimate flamenco show by professional dancers, who will even teach you a few moves if you like.
