Overview
If you want to combine Barcelona’s cuisine with its culture, look no further than this tapas and history tour—a great choice for first-time visitors. The tour is scheduled in the evening to avoid Barcelona’s daytime heat and is limited to a small group of six people to guarantee personalized attention from your guide. Plus, you’ll receive ample restaurant recommendations and sample local specialties you may not have heard of.
What to Expect

Your tour begins at a central Barcelona meeting point, where you’ll greet your guide and set off for your first culinary location. At your first restaurant, sample a selection of charcuterie that includes smoked sausage and cured cheeses accompanied by fortified wine.

Stroll to the next restaurant via Roman ruins and buildings associated with Christopher Columbus and listen to commentary that reveals the culture and history of Catalonia’s capital city. After feasting on seasonal dishes that could include braised beef cheeks and fresh fish, you’ll satisfy your sweet tooth with Spain’s version of French toast and ice cream.

The tour concludes in the heart of Barcelona.

You should check the Devour Barcelona website. That would have the most up to date information. Or when you book it, it will be right on the confirmation email.

Actually there a few types of wine were served over the course of the evening. I believe Spanish vermouth, Cava and red and white wines (all included). Excellent tour!
