Mornings in the cities are fascinating because they always show you the most authentic aspect of how its inhabitants live in their hometown. Office workers, delivery men, transporters, freelancers, public employees, all can be found around 10 AM outside their offices and in the cafés for a quick breakfast break! It’s a unique cultural custom which will be explained by our local experts during our Tapas Barcelona Brunch, a moment of the day where everybody suddenly leaves the offices for the corner cafés in town. We have designed this adventure to show you these people and the way locals live and interact in the city through the spectrum of food. As food experts, we will guide you through a succession of typical moments of life starting with the first stop, a most compulsory and traditional morning moment of the day. It’s known as “el almuerzo corto,” which could be also called second breakfast. You’ll visit the most authentic gems in the Gothic and Born hip areas, and you’ll weave in and out of locals doing their shopping as you learn about their daily customs and traditions during our Barcelona Tapas Brunch. By the end of the adventure, you’ll know exactly what it means to do tapas like a local, and why tapas culture in the morning can’t exist outside of Spain (so you’ll have to come back!).
First, we will begin our Tapas Brunch in Barcelona at exactly the peak time for many cafés, and will start our peregrination with a unique, and most typical, local breakfast. To continue the adventure, we will pass by an old, traditional corner xurreria for some crispy, delicious bites of warm churros. Then, as a third stop, we believe that any good food tour, especially in the morning, must include a local food market! That is why we have chosen one of the most typical and high-quality markets in town, away from the more touristy ones, to continue our adventure and show you some of the best fresh products our region offers. Your tasty bites during our Barcelona Tapas Brunch include jamon iberico (Spanish ham), local cheeses, delicious olives, and our incredible local champagne, cava.To finish up after these three very different experiences, we will end up like locals do, in one of the most popular bodegas in the area. This is a favorite spot among the residents, for what is, again, a must-do local tradition, the vermut appetizer! It’s quite an old tradition which came back into fashion a few years ago and became a hit with Barcelona’s residents.

We didn’t know what to expect. Four hours of eating? And the price seemed rather expensive. But boy am I glad we followed our hearts and went to enjoy this tour. If you want an evening you will always remember, and some of the best food and wine in Spain, this is the tour for you. I would do it again in a New York Minute. If I could give it six stars I would.
I booked the evening Tapas Tour for 7 people. We had a wonderful time. We enjoyed every stop and were completely satisfied with the amount of food and wine. We were stuffed and enjoyed every drop of wine! Remember, it is a walking tour, if you have any disability let the tour guide know, if you have a food allergy, let the tour guide know. The food was WONDERFUL. Book it, enjoy the history, architecture and flavor of Spain!
The food quality on this tour is a clear step up from other tours. It makes me wonder how they even make a profit when placing so much fine cuisine (and wine!) in front of us. A true test of a food tour's quality is when we ask ourselves "would we eat at this restaurant on our own after this tour" and if the answer is yes. Sign up for this tour. Seriously. Its a sure fire good time.
Where do I even begin with this great tour!! Everything was perfect, from our expert guide, to the 3 different tapas bars and restaurants we visited, to actually getting to meet the owner at one of the places...it felt like an evening amongst friends and the best part was that we went to places we surely never would have found on our own, which had some of the best food we tasted in Spain. I'll be dreaming about this mouth watering meal for a long time!
