Overview

Our small group food tours of Barcelona are designed to showcase the best of the city's hidden culinary gems and historic back alleys. Our walks take place in the friendly and laid-back Gracia neighborhood, stronghold of the Catalan kitchen, and in the seaside El Born-La Ribera and Barceloneta districts, where life seems to be imbued with the easygoing maritime soul of the nearby Mediterranean. Sampling a mix of truly local markets, restaurants, bars and food shops -- as well as some select cultural and historical stops -- our two Barcelona culinary walks take you into parts of town and authentic places that would be hard to find on your own and provide a unique (and delicious) introduction to daily life in Barcelona.

Mireia was great - she brought us to so many interesting places in the Gràcia neighborhood to try all kinds of food. I brought my niece who is doing a semester abroad in Barcelona, and we both loved it!
