Discover Spanish food & Barcelona history. As we venture through narrow back alleys & historic squares, we’ll learn about Barcelona from Roman times to the medieval golden era. With 3 stops in distinct restaurants we’ll also show you the broad variety of tapas!

After meeting in the Roman heart of the city it is time to build up your appetite! We will start our history walk through the oldest part of Barcelona: the Gothic Quarter. Our first stop is a traditional pinchos bar: snacks connected by cocktail stick to a slice of bread.

Afterwards we´ll pass through the medieval center: El Born. Learn about craftsmen & rich merchants of that time who left an impressive legacy with their palaces & the Basilica of Santa Maria del Mar. Our next tapas bar is known for its regionality - all the food comes from local fields & farms. We will try a variety of elaborated & high quality tapas.

After a desert stop you´ll have seen the old town of the city while having tried out a range of local food.

Lovely combination to discover Barcelona! We spent a great time with our guide Michael who showed us beautiful historic spots in the old town. His story telling was fascinating and he explained us many details about the Spanish food during the three stops. We particularly loved the pintxos! All the restaurants were well selected. We had a wonderful time! Thank you!
Food and History-A Great Combination

Booking with Christian I knew the tour would be top notch! Lots of great food and history, Barcelona is an amazing city and Christian’s research shares little known facts about many of the places we visited. Perfect blending of foodie and history experience.
Totally recomended!

We picked this experience for a company offsite, and everyone had such a good time doing it, the feedback is that is awesome to know more about the Barcelona History and Past as well as taste some unique delicacies. Christian is a very good guide, super nice and welcoming, it was a pleasure to have its tour and food experience, we felt it was really personalized for our big group (big thank you from our vegan/vegetarian folks!)!
Simply the Best

After attending 4 food tours during my trip to Barcelona, my final was the best! Christian and his team are the only team that can accommodate on Sundays. They also made the purchase of the tour far simpler than the others are were engaged with me as soon as the purchase was made, over email. The day prior, he sent me a text to make sure everything was going well with my trip and that we were still on track for the same time and day. Not only was the food the best, but he also gave us wine and beer to drink at no additional charge, unlike the other food tours. He also gave us the most amount of food and was able to adjust his tour to our request, that we made the day of! I found this food tour to be the cheapest of the 4 I was on which begs the question, why would you be on any other tour besides Christian’s?!
The best virtual tour and food experience

My wife and I really enjoyed the evening with Christian! Far more than just a food tour, we got an introduction to several neighborhoods in Barcelona and lots of interesting history. And the food was great! This experience is a great value and we highly recommend.
So much fun!

Christian and Michael were an absolute delight, so kind & knowledgeable! This experience was a last-minute booking for us and far exceeded our expectations. The walking tour with history/story-telling and the tapas & restaurant stops were incredible. We loved our time together and highly recommend this experience to others
