Food tours are always great, but this is probably one of the best you can do! We were in a group of eight people, which was perfect, and we had SO MUCH delicious food and wine, learned about tapas culture, and learned about Catalan and Spanish history and culture all at once. We had some of the very best tapas, including black tag Iberian ham, and had lots of traditional dishes in some nice, quiet places. This was one of the highlights of our three-week trip around Europe. Do not hesitate to book it!

Our host Fintan knew his stuff, especially about wine, but it was his affable nature which really set the tone for the evening and ensured we all had a great night. You will not leave this tour hungry. There is a LOT of delicious and interesting food and great drinks to be consumed, you definitely get your money’s worth. I have no hesitation in recommending this tour as early as possible in your visit to this amazing city!
Brilliant way to taste your way into Barcelona. We chose the Tapas & Wine Tour and not only came away feeling satiated but we were excited by our newfound knowledge of the local wines and cavas. Jaume our guide was exceptional, he had great energy and was extremely knowledgeable, his passion for his city’s gastronomy was evident, making the entire experience truly memorable and great value.

What to Expect on Your Tour
Immerse yourself in the exciting world of Spanish food & wine as you weave your way in and out of three unique Barcelona tapas bars in the gorgeous Born district! From old-school traditional to new and modern, this walking Barcelona tapas and wine tour is the best way to discover interesting local wines and delicious eateries. Throughout the tapas and wine tour, each wine tasting is paired with specialty tapas, at our favorite handpicked places. You’ll taste everything from Spanish reds and whites, to sparkling wine, vermouth, and sweet wine, and visit restaurants featuring local farm-to-table food. By the end of the evening, you’ll be armed with tips for enjoying tapas and wine in Barcelona for the rest of your trip, and you’ll have a clearer idea on which bottle to pick up at the supermarket back home!
Start your night the way most locals do in Barcelona—with a classic aperitif! You’ll enjoy sweet vermouth straight from the tap, and you’ll learn why this delicious fortified wine is making a comeback! You’ll also try two quintessential Barcelona tapas—Iberian ham croquettes and spicy patatas bravas!
Next up, you’ll head to one of Barcelona’s trendiest wine bars. The owners specialize in Catalan wines and boast a fantastic wine list. This is where you’ll dive into the world of sparkling Spanish wine—cava—which is mostly produced in Catalonia! You’ll taste two very different cavas before moving on to something Spain is a little less known for—white and rosé! These refreshing wines will be paired with gourmet, open-faced toasts.
The last stop of the night is at a modern tapas restaurant. Serving local and organic farm-to-table style food, the owner even makes his own wine! You’ll taste a couple of Catalonia's fabulous reds, paired alongside some of the most delicious dishes in town, such as melt-in-your-mouth Iberian pork, or tender braised beef.
And as with all Devour Barcelona tours, your guide will give you a copy of our Devouring Barcelona guide, which is packed with all our favorite places to eat and drink in the city! So put down your guidebook and get ready to experience Barcelona like a local on our Gourmet Barcelona Tapas and Wine Tour!
Great question! A Devour Barcelona food tour is a fun, fascinating and (most importantly!) delicious introduction to the incredible city of Barcelona. Our food tours visit some of the city’s best traditional eateries, including tapas bars, local markets, taverns and shops, and hidden gems that few even know exist! You’ll taste some of Barcelona's best local food, and gain fascinating insight into its age-old traditions. We keep our groups small and every tour is led by an English-speaking guide who knows Barcelona like the back of their hand, and loves it to bits.
Don’t worry, you won’t be part of a massive hoard following a guide with a flag or a flamenco fan! We keep our groups small and intimate, so the tour can squeeze into small, hidden places and you get personal time with your guide. The maximum number of guests on this tour is usually 10 people and all of our tours are guaranteed to operate, even with just 1 person.
The tour does not include transport to the meeting place, or from the ending point (ask your guide for guidance at the end of the tour if you’re not sure where you are).Also, please feel free to tip your guide if you think they did a great job! The standard gratuity in the tour industry is 10-15%.
Most importantly, your appetite! Also, keep in mind that tours take place rain or shine, so please dress appropriately and bring an umbrella if it looks like rain. Also, we recommend you wear comfortable shoes as you’ll be walking a few kilometres. Finally, while we do serve water on the tour at some stops, we recommend you bring a bottle of water.
Of course! We regularly offer private tours to families, groups of friends and corporate groups. Email us your group size, the date you'd like the tour and anything else you'd like us to keep in mind, and we'll get back to you within 24 hours.
