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.
Loved the tapas walking tour. Mercedes was a great guide and brought us to wonderful places with the best food and wine. Gave us the best tip of rubbing a tomato over dry bread and adding olive oil. The Flamingo show was a little disappointing though. I thought that they would have used castenettes.
Great bars and tapas tour with Mercedes as our guide, but bail at the dancing as it was dreadful

The tapas and walking through the old town was fabulous with Mercedes as our guide, but don’t bother with the flaminco dancing was horrible. No wonder our guide didn’t stay
The rest of the tour was so well worth it and highly recommend it
A full evening, experiencing the food, architecture and nightlife of Barcelona. The first restaurant was very authentic and food was as delicious, the second was not as good but still ok. Flamenco was excellent in a small intimate venue and our guide Pablo was informative and humorous, overall a lovely evening
Our guide brought us to 3 tapas restaurants where he ordered a a number of items and a local wine. We had eggplant with honey and lemon, octopus, and even trips. The food was excellent, he explained each dish and talked about each restaurants story.
The Flamenco show was very good. The music and dance was exciting and fun. Afterwards we stopped at an underground bar for a taste of Cava. It was a bit of a walk between stops but a great experiance.
Give this guy a raise!!! Camilo picked the right tapas at the right places and showed us interesting places we never would have found on our own. All four of us felt we were treated royall by him.
What a great evening we had.
exceeded our exceptions - guide was excellent - food and show made it a very enjoyable evening . made us question a little when we arrived and no one was present as the office was closed when we arrived, however, the guide showed before the scheduled time and made us all feel at ease
I had a great time on this tour. It was my first night in Barcelona and I was alone. There were about 8 women on the tour and we all had a great time. Our younger male guide was very enthusiastic and so much fun, he was kind and respectful and full of life. He took us to enjoy the true tapas experience and taught us about the various foods and how to eat them, and then we went to the flamenco show. I enjoyed it.
Jordy was a very nice and knowledgable young man who was organized and very accommodating. We really enjoyed the Tapas and I felt the flamingo dancers were very good. My friend was a little disappointed because we felt we would be seeing women with the beautiful dresses and castanets. The men dancers however were very authentic and great dancers. We had a lot of fun.
