Gaudi and Gracia Tapas Tour of BarcelonaIn Barcelona you can sample just about every kind of tapas: every region is represented in every imaginable price range, from modern morsels to traditional tapas. This makes it hard to choose, and it is easy to fall into the touristy tapas traps in the Gothic Quarter or along Las Ramblas. We've come to the rescue by creating our very own, decidedly local tour.
Our Gaudí & Gràcia Tapas Tour is different. A little history. A little local scenery. A little style, a little tradition. Good, authentic food and drink. Relaxed atmosphere. Fun guides. You'll get to see beautiful architecture (Gaudi's famous buildings La Pedrera and Casa Batlló), sip cava in a five-star hotel (Casa Fuster, where Woody Allen plays clarinet when he and his jazz band are in town), take a break in the lovely Palau Robert garden (also the main tourist information office!).
But we've not gotten to the best part yet: the tapas. We'll stop at three authentic tapas bars, the kind of place locals flock to after work for a beer and a snack. We've picked out some of the most popular and celebrated tapas to delight your palate, accompanied by beer, wine or cava.
Once you're done with our tour, you'll have seen some of Barcelona's architectural gems, strolled through the charming Gracia neighbourhood and eaten like a local. If you're tired of overpriced, touristy tapas then let us give you the local version of this popular Spanish tradition.
