Full description
Join a 2000 year magical journey through one of the most vibrant neighborhoods, Barri Gotic.  Your foodie and knowledgeable guide will bring the history of Barcelona to life on your 2.5 to 3-hour tasting journey. During your tour, mix history with the traditions of the neighborhood you explore with wonderful, authentic food like the famous Botifarra and the legendary Pa amb Tomaquet.  No trip is complete in Barcelona until it includes a visit to the world-renowned Boqueria Market. Explore the colorful stalls filled with all kinds of food and amazing flavors and aromas. Follow your foodie guide through the narrow aisles, and explore before you get to taste some cured meats, locally made cheeses and a few more bites! This experience is the best of both worlds, all rolled into one amazing tour.

Not to miss if you want a personalised introduction to Barcelona history and traditional cuisine. Adrian makes you feel like you are being taken round by a local friend... stops at different locations and tips for further exploration are on point. Am so so glad we did this at the beginning of our 5 day stay as it served as a brilliant (and delicious!) orientation tour.

Issue with directions to meeting point. It stated Place Dr Angel, then described meeting in front of Hard Rock Cafe, which is 10 mins walk away. This caused a lot of stress and we may missed the tour. I had to call and wait on the phone to sort it out. Please can you review the meeting instructions for this tour. Other than that, the tour was excellent. Adrian was very informative, amusing and good fun. We saw parts of the city that we wouldn't have gone to. Very good tour guide
