What You Can Expect

Barcelona Gourmet Tapas Walking Tour and Flamenco Show

Enjoy gourmet tapas during a flamenco show in Barcelona!

Celebrate with some of Barcelona’s best food, drinks and entertainment during this combined 3-hour tapas crawl and flamenco show with a small group of no more than 20 guests. It’s a great way to taste the amazing culinary culture and raucous party atmosphere of this unique capital of Catalonia.

Meet your guide in central Barcelona near the Palau de la Musica in the evening. You’ll proceed on a relaxed walk through the city to the Eixample neighborhood to make your first tapas stop of the evening at a sleek modernist-style bar. Enjoy plates of some of Barcelona’s most iconic tapas dishes, including patates braves (potatoes cooked in oil with chili, aioli and red pepper), and pa amb tomàquet (bread covered with a tasty mix of tomatoes and olive oil). Observe the chef as they freshly prepare your plate before your eyes, then enjoy this mouth-watering dish with a drink as you feast on the stories of Catalan food culture shared by your guide.

Proceed on foot to your second tapas stop of the evening, listening as your guide shares more insights into the development Barcelona’s food scene, culture and history as you walk. Stop number two is a much-loved neighborhood ham store in the El Born area. Check out the savory legs of jamón serrano (Serrano ham) dangling in the windows before heading inside to taste a choice selection of the shop’s best cheeses (like Manchego) along with its top-notch meats, cured from pigs fed a diet of oil-rich acorns.

Continue walking through El Born, meandering past the old Roman walls and the Barcelona Cathedral (Cathedral of the Holy Cross and Santa Eulalia) as you make your way to the narrow streets of the Gothic Quarter and to the Plaça Reial. This busy nocturnal gathering spot is also the site of your evening’s flamenco performance, hosted in one of the city’s oldest flamenco venues. 

Enjoy a glass of cava (sparkling wine) before locating your seat for the show, featuring all the best elements of a traditional flamenco performance with singing, fluid dancing and Spanish guitars. Have some sangria and some plates of gourmet tapas as the dancers captivate you with their incredible flamenco moves.

End your evening at the conclusion of the show, though you’re free to continue the fun at the venue’s roof terrace or in its stylish bar, where you can purchase more drinks if you wish.

Daniel the tour guide was really good. He had a thorough knowledge of Barcelona's history and architecture during the walk, as well as a thorough understanding of the local restaurants that we visited, in addition to others in the area that we passed by.

The tapas walking tour was a great experience. The flamenco show was somewhat disappointing, but our guide made up for the disappointment with the places he took us to and sharing his knowledge about Spanish culture and food with us.

I absolutely loved the tapas walking tour, Daniel our guide was brilliant and so knowledgable. Great at explaining about the food, the city, the culture - and because it was December, taking us through a Christmas market and explaining the Spanish Christmas traditions, which i loved learning about.

The tour consisted of visiting 2 tapas restaurants where we had amazing food and drink, plus a bar where we had Cava, before going next door to the club where the Flamenco show took place.

Learning about tapas and tasting an array of different dishes was a brilliant experience, and as a solo traveller a great way to meet and socialise with others, and i've already recommended it to all my friends.

We ended up being late for our tour, but they were accommodating and we were the only ones signed up, so they waited for us. Daniel took us around and it was an amazing experience! The restaurants were great, Daniel was very knowledgable and we had a great time. The flamenco show was great as well. Highly recommended.

completely enjoyed the first part of the tour, the tapas were excellent, thought the flamenco show location was a bit on the tacky side reminded me of bars I frequented in the 60's or maybe just tired. Overall a great experience and would reccommended to others. We did have difficulty locating the location to start the tour and I wanted to know about the eyeballs across the street and could not get an answer.
