Try Barcelona's best tapas while walking in the charming Old Town
During this private tour I will introduce you into the best tapas bars in Barcelona's Old Town.
We will walk in three different districts in the city, all beautiful and charming: El Borne, El Gotico and El Raval. They are absolutely cosy and gorgeous by night.
First we will try different olive oils and you will be surprised how different they can taste.
Then we make time for a nice local aperitif in El Borne and continue our journey from there. While we discover the tapas ibn different bars and drink local wines, we pass by important landmarks in Barcelona such as the Cathedral del Mar.
I explain to you the history and background during our walk.
We will try the typical and tasty tapas such as pan con tomate, patatas bravas, squid fritters, jamon etc. To finish, we have to have the crema catalana: a local delicious dessert you will not regret trying.
Please join me in trying all these lovely dishes and wines during a cosy walk together!

Esther was our favorite guide this trip. She was very knowledgable and enthusiastic about Barcelona and the food scene. She took us to awesome places for pincho's, wine, sangria, tapas and even desert. She was a true pleasure to spend time with. Thank you again for our wonderful night in Barcelona!
