Le me tell you honestly that I am passionate about food, I love cooking and even had a Restaurant in Barcelona.
We will visit the Boqueria Food Market, praised "best food market in the world".

Food stores, heritage and modern as well as wine and cava (sparkling wine) are also available on my customized itinerary for you.
Cheese, chocolate, cakes, desserts. . . you name it, are part of the culinary fun that I propose you to experience with me.
And all that strolling through historic Medieval Barcelona District.

Leisurely stroll through Medieval and Jewish Barcelona as well as the Born District.
Together we will discover a selection of Tapas, Food Stores and Restaurants including off-the-beaten-track Food, drink and dessert experiences that you will remember and recommend.
I would have done some reservations according to what you would have told at the time of booking and per email, but I would adapt to your wishes once we have met and I would know you personally.

Josep gave us a perfect introduction to Barcelona on our first day in the city. He made available a small, very comfortable listening device for each of us, which allowed us to hear him even though we are not standing/walking close to him. It made it very easy to hear him even at very noisy and crowded places. Each of us can walk at our own pace, stop and take pictures without missing a word of Josep's excellent narrative. He was very knowledgeable and flexible based on our family interests. A++
