Full description
Join a 2000 year magical journey through one of the most vibrant neighborhoods, Barri Gotic.  Your foodie and knowledgeable guide will bring the history of Barcelona to life on your 2.5 to 3-hour tasting journey. During your tour, mix history with the traditions of the neighborhood you explore with wonderful, authentic food like the famous Botifarra and the legendary Pa amb Tomaquet. 

No trip is complete in Barcelona until it includes a visit to the world-renowned Boqueria Market. Explore the colorful stalls filled with all kinds of food and amazing flavors and aromas. Follow your foodie guide through the narrow aisles, and explore before you get to taste some cured meats, locally made cheeses and a few more bites!

This experience is the best of both worlds, all rolled into one amazing tour.
