Full description
If you like typical Catalan food or want to try it for the first time, and also want to visit some of the top markets in Barcelona, this 4-hour foodie tour is the perfect choice. Barcelona boasts some of the greatest food markets in the world, and this tour features two of the most important places where you can find authentic and healthy fresh food- La Boqueria and Santa Caterina markets. In addition, you’ll experience the joy of eating at three nearby tapas restaurants right in the heart of the city. First, your expert guide will take you on a visit to La Boqueria, the finest market in Barcelona for fresh products such as meats, fish and vegetables. Its location on famous La Rambla is one of the most popular with locals and one of the most attractive pedestrian areas in Europe. Next, you’ll move on to the first tapas stop at a place renowned by locals for its pintxos, which are small snacks traditionally eaten in the northern regions of Spain. Your second stop is at a place where locals usually meet and eat. Try typical tapas from Mediterranean cuisine that combine succulent fish, meats and vegetables. You guide will also take you to visit Santa Caterina market, particularly interesting because of its architecture, including its wavy and colorful roof. It is also interesting because of its history, as it was built on the ruins of a ancient convent. Tell your guide what you like to eat, and you’ll be shown some of the most popular local restaurants, offering up the most delicious foods that are beautifully presented. Your last stop is at a restaurant that offers well-prepared and tasty meat dishes and drinks from the Spanish and Catalan cultures.

Wir würden beim nächsten mal die Tour sicher wieder buchen. Der Reiseführer war sehr nett, er hat uns immer nach unseren Geschmacksvorlieben gefragt und das bei der Bestellung berücksichtigt!!!

Die Tour war anders als erwartet, dennoch vollkommen informativ und unterhaltsam aber leider keine klassische Markttour. Den Markt La Boqueria haben wir nicht besucht, waren im Mercat de Santa Caterina auf sehr kurzem Besuch, davor in einer Tapas Bar vor dem Markt und anschliessend noch eine Tapasbar im gotischen Viertel. Der Schwerpunkt der Tour lag meiner Meinung nach eher auf Sightseeing und wir haben tolle Sachen gesehen aber ich hatte es mir eher auf den Schwerpunkt Märkte und lokale Leckereien vorgestellt und ganz viel Essen und Probieren von lokalen Köstlichkeiten. Nichtsdestotrotz hat uns der Tag mit Matti dennoch sehr gut gefallen und wir haben viel Insiderwissen und Tipps bekommen, die wir so in Barcelona nicht gesehen hätten.
