Tapas & Pinchos + Flamenco (or Picasso) with a private guide


- - - This is a perfect introduction to the city - - -
You have probably heard about Tapas and Pinchos. A peculiar ways of eating that we have in Spain.
Pintxos is a variant of the tapas, and became popular in the Basque Country. Both options are very extended in the whole Spain.

In Barcelona there are many new shops where you can eat it. That's why I would like to take you to the most emblematic ones of the city. Some of them are almost a hundred years old and have been visited by famous figures.
On foot, we will visit 3 shops. At the same time that we will walk down the food, we will seize this opportunity to see the old Barcelona and learn about its history and anecdotes.

To complete this funny tour I recommend ending the day seeing a Flamenco show. Or we can swap this activity for something totally different visiting the Picasso museum, which is in the Old Town as well.

Itinerary

Three places for "tapas" and "Pintxos" in the Old Town passing by Las Ramblas; Gothic Quarter; the Cathedral; the Royal Palace; etc.

As the Flamenco place is inside the Poble Espanyol, we will visit the Poble Espanyol without paying the entrance of it.

(Optional: to swap the Flamenco show for the Picasso museum)

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: I will meet you at your hotel/apartment; at the cruise ship terminal or wherever we agree (as long as it is in Barcelona).

Recommended starting time: 5:30PM, so we can combine the tour with the Flamenco shows at 9:15PM (On Monday at 5.00PM and the Flamenco at 9.00PM)

End location: The Flamenco show finishes at 10.30PM (on Monday at 10.00PM) - it's possible to choose an earlier show. From there you can take a taxi to your hotel/apartment/Cruise Ship Terminal.
My services finish when you go into the Flamenco place.

Duration: 3 hours 30 min.

Tours are conducted rain or shine.

On Sunday afternoon and in August is not possible to do this tour because many bars of Tapas are closed.

A Recent Review of this tour

What a great walking tour Francesc provided of the old town and Picasso Museum. He selected excellent Tapas tasting venues for us, and his research showed with outstanding background info on Picasso. He was so personable and enjoyable for what proofed to be a great evening, in spite of some heavy rains that fell in our walk to the museum. It all added to the experience of "old town".
