What to expect
Your culinary tour begins in central Barcelona, where you greet your guide and small group limited to 12 people. Awaken your taste buds with coffee and a traditional Catalan pastry, xuixo, and head to a family-run deli to sample meat and cheeses. Continue to Santa Caterina Market—a less-crowded alternative to La Boqueria Market—to learn about local produce before doing more tastings in the Born area, where one of the stops is to a shop that’s been open for more than 150 years. Then, head to Barcelona’s fisherman’s quarter to sip vermouth in a tapas bar before tucking into home-cooked paella. Your guide teaches you about traditions, like drinking from a porron, and festivals. The tour concludes here.

Food and History
Jan 2020 • Friends
This was our first Devour Tour, which we followed up with 2 more! Jessica was a great guide with heaps of information and tips. We learnt so much about Barcelona history in a couple of hours. A good tour to do at the start of our stay, Jessica was able to suggest many good things to eat, drink and see. Would thoroughly recommend a Devour tour.

Hi there! Thanks so much for leaving a review. We really appreciate it. Jessica loves giving the Tapas, Taverns and History tour. She gets to talk about her city for a few hours! Hopefully she will be back in the Gotic quarter again soon, taking guests around its narrow streets. Hope you are safe and well! Regards, Owen

Best way to experience Barcelona!
Feb 2020
The Taste and Traditions tour is fantastic and Hannah is a terrific guide! She was enthusiastic, patient and knowledgable. The variety of food is exciting to taste- and delicious! Learning the history of the food and the Catalan people made it meaningful and educational. We tried to recreate the tour on our own the next day with our daughter, who is living in Barcelona. Will recommend the tour spots and Devour tours to anyone!

Best food tour ever!!
Feb 2020 • Family
As a family, we feel that food is a really important part of a holiday. A great way to get to experience the local culture. This tour was hands down the highlight of our time in Barcelona. Our guide, Hannah was friendly, passionate about food and Barcelona, and made us feel very welcome. And the food! Honestly, from the first bite of Fuet to the last mouthful of paella, it was a journey I will never forget. But it wast just about eating. We learned so much about the city too. So worth the money.

Best way to see (and Taste) Barcelona!
Feb 2020
We had a BLAST on our Devour Barcelona Food Tour! We did the Tastes and Traditions tour, which offered a large variety of delicious food types and great history of the neighborhoods, plus we had a super awesome guide in Valentina! We do food tours in every location we visit (because what better way is there to get to know a city??) and this was definitely one of our favorites. Would highly recommend!!

Great food tour!
I highly recommend this tour. Sometimes you wonder if the food or the guide would meet your expectations. I am very happy to say, it exceeded on both points. Hannah, our guide, was very knowledgeable, informative, friendly and charming. She did an excellent job. I learned a lot about the history of the areas we visited, more than what the guide book tell you. The food stops were also great. Barcelona has so many eateries, it is hard to choose, but the place we stopped, I would like to go back. There was quality and quantity.

Truly a taste of Barcelona.
This tour provided a great insight into the food of Barcelona and Spain more generally, as well as some of the history of the city. It’s based around food and had plenty of stops to taste some Spanish traditional foods.

Starting in a market with a look at the produce available and the importance of markets in Spanish culture, we enjoyed our second breakfast (Frodo Baggins would be proud) complete with Cava, before visiting some of the old stores that have been trading for over 100 years, as well as one of Barcelona’s top and most innovative patisseries, learning about the history of Barcelona as we went, before trying more tastes, finishing with a great paella in Barceloneta.

It’s not a cheap tour, but there is a lot of quality tasting along the way as the expert guide explains the importance of food culture. Very enjoyable.

Seriously Not to Be Missed
Jan 2020
Our Devour Tour with Alvaro really set the stage for a deep experience of Barcelona and its rich food and history. We learned a lot, walked a lot, and ate A LOT--but were eager to continue the explorations with all the great advice and background we acquired on this tour.
I'm a "go it on my own" traveller, but have discovered that small walking tours like Devour enhance the experience of a city many fold. In the case of this trip and this guide, I can honestly say the impressions will be long lasting.
Eager to find another opportunity to take a Devour Tour.
