What You Can Expect

Barcelona Gourmet Tapas Walking Tour and Flamenco Show

Enjoy gourmet tapas during a flamenco show in Barcelona!

After meeting your guide in central Barcelona, near Palau de la Musica, take a leisurely stroll to Eixample to discover a tapas gem, one of Barcelona’s Modernist-style bars. The bar serves up delicious small plates of Catalan favorites such as pa amb tomàquet (bread with olive oil and tomatoes) and patates braves (potatoes with oil, red pepper and chili, served with aioli). Watch the chef prepare the food, and then sit down to savor a plate and a drink while hearing tales about Catalan cuisine.

Walk off your snack with a stroll to Born, listening to your guide talking about Barcelona’s history, food and culture as you go. Your destination is the neighborhood's locally loved ham shop, where huge legs of serrano ham hang in the windows. Head inside and sample some of the best meats, made from acorn-fed pigs, and sample popular cheeses such as Manchego.

Continuing your stroll through Born, pass Barcelona Cathedral (Cathedral of the Holy Cross and Saint Eulalia) and the old Roman city walls, and then wind your way to the heart of the Gothic Quarter to Plaça Reial, a bustling nighttime square near La Rambla, where the highlight of your evening awaits -- a flamenco performance inside one of the oldest flamenco bars in Barcelona!

Sip a welcome glass of cava while soaking up the authentic atmosphere. Then, grab your seat and enjoy the show, which includes all the traditional elements of a flamenco performance, including dancing, singing and Spanish guitar songs. Sip on sangria and dine on plates of gourmet tapas as dancers perform their fiery Spanish flamenco moves right in front of you.

Your evening experience finishes after the show, but you're welcome to head to the roof terrace or visit the stylish bar for drinks at your own expense, 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.
