Spend the morning exploring the regional food with your local expert. We begin this tour by tasting our way through the Santa Caterina market. We will try local products along our way and will finish with a tapas lunch.
On this lively tour, you will begin with a food walk through Barcelona's famous Santa Caterina Market. On this portion of the food walking tour, you will have the chance to meet vendors and sample season products. At Santa Caterina you will taste the freshest fruits and vegetables, all regional to Barcelona. After sampling delicious local favourites and learning about the history of the market, you will begin a guided tour through famous neighbourhoods.
Your guide will lead you through the curvy back streets of historical barrios (neighbourhoods) in Barcelona. Such barrios include the Born, Gothic and Jewish, where you will visit various specialty good shops. At these specialty good shops you can indulge in the finest quality cheeses and olive oils. At each shop you will also get detailed descriptions of each product you taste. Once you finish tasting your way through the cobble stoned streets of the historical barrios, you will rest your legs and sit down for traditional tapas and a gourmet dessert.

My wife and I did the afternoon wine and tapas tour in old Barcelona with Mireia last week. We had a wonderful time, and would highly recommend it to anyone! Barcelona was at the end of our 10 day trip through Spain, but Mireia's knowledge and planning ensured we were still learning new things, trying new foods, and seeing new parts of the city. We learned more about Spanish wine from Mireia than on the whole rest of our trip combined. She can talk through technical questions about the wine making process if you like, but she also hosts a great tasting that lets you focus on sampling and comparing great wines. Her selection of tapas bars to stop in during our tour was perfect, taking us to a couple of small, truly local places that had great food, and that we never would have found on our own. Mireia herself was an absolute pleasure to meet and spend time with in the city, and made sure that our whole night was memorable.
My family and I did a food and wine tasting with Mireia. I really appreciated how she accommodated our vegetarian diets! We started the tour by walking to the market - picking up some fresh tomatoes for a later tasting! She gave a lot of great information about barcelona while walking around the gothic quarter and barcino. The wines were excellent and not the typical spanish wines that i'm familiar with which I really appreciated. She also explained the wine making process of cava which was super! I can't wait to visit Barcelona again and take another tour with Mireia! You will not be disappointed by choosing this company!
My wife and I went on the Evening Wine Tasting tour with Mireia during our honeymoon in July '17. Mireia was engaging and provided a lot of knowledge about the wines and different tasting notes we experienced. We had an ample amount of great wine and Tapas!
We had a woderful time with our foode tour guide Mireia. She brought us to Mercat de Santa Caterina and we loved the place. Very clean and had a lot of nice stuff to buy. Then she toured is around and saw some stores. She. Brought us to a wine shop where we tasted one of the best wines. I must say that Mireia is the best.
