Food Lover Tour: Tapas Tour – Barcelona, Spain

Reviewed by FoodTourFinder!
See our review in the Comments section


We have all tried to find “the” place to eat—where the locals go, yet undiscovered by the tourists, where it’s possible to order like the locals and enjoy a delicious meal that it would be nearly impossible to discover on your own. This sensation of being away from home and yet a part of the local scene is what our “TAPAS LOVER Tour” is all about.

The Food Lover Tour, as the name suggests, is first and foremost a tour created for lovers of good food—‘foodies’ wishing to explore the local cuisine who want to enjoy their stay in Barcelona while having fun and avoiding the typical tourist traps. Where the locals go, we go! This tapas tour is a very laid back experience with a few stops including a gastronomic dinner in the local and most loved areas in Barcelona. You’d like to know where we go and what we eat? Come and join us on the Tapas Lover Tour.

We partner with a very small group of tapas restaurants that we believe are serving the best tapas—hot and cold appetizers and snacks—in Barcelona. On this tour, we will enjoy exclusive visits to bodegas, taverns and restaurants that offer sensational traditional foods and wines popular with the local community.

Local Experience Guaranteed, Including a Gastronomic Dinner

The first stop takes place in a local “after hour bar/restaurant” very well-known by the people of Barcelona for its good atmosphere; this is where we will start our tour with a few appetizers and drinks. Here, we’ll familiarize you with the basics of our culture’s approach to dining. 

At our second stop we’ll continue enjoying appetizers, but these will be quite different from our first stop. We’ll taste succulent, heartier tapas paired with typical drinks that form the identity of our Spanish and Catalan culture and are very appreciated among the locals.

The final tapas experience is a proper gastronomic and gourmet dinner. The Food Lover Tour has been granted access to some of the “most coveted” and “must see” restaurants in town. Sit down, relax and enjoy a true culinary adventure for foodies, including the best fresh local foods, seasonal meals, wine pairings and great company. Time to enjoy! Welcome to Barcelona and welcome to the Tapas Lover Tour!

A Taste of Spain: Tapas Tours

Enjoy the best local tapas in Barcelona, Madrid, San Sebastian, Seville… at your own pace!

Tapas play a central role in Spain’s gastronomic scene. Much like Spanish traditional cooking, tapas vary between regions, reflecting not only differences in ingredients and preparations, but also different lifestyles.

They can be traditional or creative, served on bread or independently, cold or hot, small or large. Even the names to order these miniature dishes vary, and what is known as Tapa in one area can be called Ración or Pintxo in others.

Whatever the name may be, there is no better way to savor the local tapas scene than taking one of our private Tapas Tours, available throughout Spain, and perfect for families with children. You’ll visit some of the most interesting Tapas bars in the town of your choice in the company of a local foodie, who will help you select the best tapas based on your personal tastes and the regional or house specialties.

Enjoy some of the best tapas in town with your family & friends. And, beyond the food, experience what the tapas culture is all about: the local rituals and customs, the seasonal preparations, the rhythms, the unique atmosphere…
