About The Barcelona Taste
The Barcelona Taste was founded in 2009 to introduce curious locals and adventurous tourists alike to the culinary treats nestled within the labyrinth that is Barcelona. After years of exploring, sampling, and delighting in the local secrets, we decided we were ready to share our discoveries with other discerning palates wanting to experience a more authentic Barcelona. Barcelona is, obviously, a major tourist destination and the number of tours, guidebooks, and websites devoted to the city’s visitors can be overwhelming. This is another reason we decided to start The Barcelona Taste: a small, local culinary tour that lets you experience all the great food while side-stepping the crowds. We are Barcelona’s first complete gastronomical tour built around the idea that there is no reason to just walk and talk about food when it’s possible to walk, talk, and eat it! So, welcome! We look forward to tapas tasting our way around Barcelona with you.

This 3 hour food tour takes you through Barcelona’s famous Ciutat Vella (old city) – past Roman walls, alongside cathedrals, through precious plazas and, most importantly, in-and-out of 3 small local restaurants that will leave you sated, jolly, and with a better understanding of local Catalan and Spanish cuisine.

This is not a large historical walking tour with only a snack to look forward to at the end. As a Barcelona-only company we only work with independent, local restaurants, chosen for their best-in-class food and desserts.

After 10 years of running tours, we know the best tours should feel like dinner out with a friend of a friend. In this small group tour, conversations will flow, and your guide will safely lead you through Barcelona sharing a personal, relaxed evening. Chat about the neighbourhood, food, and anything else that comes up – be it about Barcelona life, culture or history.

As recommended by Rick Steves, Lonely Planet and more!

On this 3 hour food tour we worm our way through the city's old but vibrant performing arts district, calling in at 3 uniquely different venues. Poble Sec is centrally located, but feels miles away from the touristy crowds. The food is exceptional, with several of the traditional dishes offered with a little twist.

With distinctive fast-draining soil and a unique microclimate overlooking the Mediterranean, Alella has produced exceptional wines since Roman times, served to Emperors no less! This fame continued in the Middle Ages, when Alella wines were served at the court of the Kings of Aragon.

Today, Alella is the smallest wine region in Cataluyna to gain coveted EU Denomination of Origen (D.O.) status...but for some reason it isn’t well known abroad. Our mission is to change that – don't miss out on this secret!

We will visit 2 carefully-selected vineyards (the region's best and most popular, where depending on the day we might might tour with other guests, and a beautiful family-run bodega we work with exclusively), and devour a home-style, traditional Catalan lunch. By the end of the tour, you'll have learnt much about the region, its unique geological properties, and our special pansa blanca grape, accompanied by a charismatic, informed, private guide.

For private groups of 3-6 guests.
