Very good site with many ideas which help planning a vacation.

  • El Raval

    Begin your food trip in the vibrant neighborhood of El Raval. Stumble upon a terrace bar where you will be treated to a tasting of pintxo de butifarra (bread with toppings) or Salmorejo (soup made of tomato purée with bread mixture). Then head to a bodega for some ham and cheese paired with wine.

  • Vermuteria (Vermouth Wine Bar)

    Traverse Rambla del Raval and catch a glimpse of Fernando Botero's plump cat sculpture. Stop by a vermuteria where you can take a sip of vermouth (aromatic wine) or tinto de verano (a cocktail comparable to Sangria). Enjoy with a serving of Spanish omelette.

    Make your way across Paral·lel for your next destination, the El Poble-sec district, where you can find some of the best bodegas in town. You'll visit one to savor another traditional pintxo, accompanied with a glass of cava.

Description

Savor Barcelona the way it's meant to be savored - with a delectable tapas tour. Discover the different flavors of Barcelona's Catalan tapas culture and dive into the city's vibrant evening atmosphere, where locals relax after a day's work and prepare themselves for a late dinner. This three-hour food adventure through Barcelona's multicultural 'barrios' (quarters), Raval and Poble Sec, will give you a truly charming and delicious local experience in two of the city's off-the-beaten-track neighborhoods.

Meet your English-speaking guide in front of the Arts Center Santa Monica on the bottom of the Ramblas (Metro Station "Drassanes") before setting off. Just a stone's throw away, you will enjoy the first tapas experience of the night at a cozy little terrace bar. Pick up a pintxo of butifarra or some salmorejo - two truly traditional and tasty dishes.

The next tapas bar awaits us and we navigate our way through a labyrinth of small streets that still retain their old-world ambiance. Here, savor several tapas to share. Next up is a warm bodega (wine cellar) with exquisite ham and cheese. Experience these tasty flavours accompanied by a nice white or red wine.

From there, our Barcelona tapas tour continues when we cross the Rambla de Raval, the multicultural heart of the Raval where we shall have a look at the cat sculpture of the Columbian artist Fernando Botero.

The head straight to a typical Vermuteria, where you can have a vermut (vermouth) or tinto de verano (think sangría, but simpler) and indulge in a Spanish omelette. On the way to the adjacent quarter, Poble Sec, we will cross Parallel, once famous for its Montmartre-style entertainment and is still cluttered with theaters, music venues and cabarets. The quarter Poble Sec is attached to the Montjuic, Barcelona's emblematic hillside. Still very central, and with such an authentic feel, it keeps the charm of a lively neighborhood away from the main tourist trails.

Our next stop is a vibrant bodega, where you can choose your favorite Basque pintxo (3 pintxo per person) and top it all off with a glass of cava.

Throughout the tour, your guide will let you know more about local gastronomic specialties, delighted as you are in your discovery of new tastes, flavors and dishes. Share several tapas in this last bar. You shall also likely meet some of the locals in the barrio who, at some point during the tour, get you into an interesting conversation. But you'll never know what the night has in store for you!

Was very lucky to have a personalised tour and it was awesome!!! I fully recommend it to all amazing food and wine but the knowled...ge I learnt was also incredible. more

Betina

Our guide, Dago, was warm, friendly, funny and made our night an unforgettable experience. Thankfully we had not eaten lunch that ...day, we could only just finish what we had been given at the end of the night. Good, fresh food, interesting tapas bars and enough to drink to go with it. more

Lynette

Our guide, Matthias, was great. It was fun to spent the time with him. The only negative thing to mention was the female employee ...from urban adventures who was on the phone when I called because the guide was late. She was very impolite and unfriendly and not willing to help. Fortunately the guide arrived after a while and explained his lateness. He just extended the tour which wasn't a problem for the participants.I would suggest that urban adventure leaves the phone number from the guide in future than we don't bother the female employee. more
