The Barcelona foodie tour -Born edition- step by step

We will start this Barcelona Foodie Tour the same way we love to start our meals: enjoying a vermut (vermouth), we use to drink it with olives (just in this area you’ll be surprised) and some croquettes (just a for instance). Old wine barrels, wooden tables and medieval walls will be the beginning of this tasty adventure.

After this first stop, we bet you’ll be a little bit hungry, (this is the mission of the vermut, to open your stomach), and of course, we will take good care of it. We will stop in a wine bar to taste some Catalan wines and some food. Which kind? Mmmm, that’s and ace we prefer to keep in our sleeve.

The last venue will be a beloved, local and popular restaurant where they serve amazing platillos. Those are to share, like the tapas, but they are just more sophisticated. Iberian ham, smoked sardines on a toast, lamb terrine or octopus bombs are some of their specialities.

Is the food included in the price?

Yes. The prices change according to the number of people in your party. We prefer to include food this way you know the final price. However, drinks and food won’t be ordered beforehand. Once you arrive to each venue, the guide will give you the options you have to choose what fits better your taste. One advice: be adventurous! We’re sure you’ll make amazing discoveries.

In this Barcelona Foodie Tour -Born Edition- You will taste a vermut, a white wine, a rosé wine (both Catalan) and a red wine. Tapas, platillos and other specialities will be paired with the drinks. You won’t need to have lunch or dinner after the tour.

Are there some explanations about the neighbourhood as well?

Yes, since we are a team of guides who happens to be foodies as well, we will unveil you the history of the neighbourhood when we go from one venue to the other. Santa Maria del Mar, Rambla del Born and Montcada Street will take several centuries back in time.

Which is the best hour to have this Barcelona Foodie Tour?

As you probably know, we use to have our meals quite late. In fact, the Spanish hours are often a topic of conversation. This is the reason why if you start your tours very early, the venues will be opened but you won’t see a local. We advise to start the tour around 11 a.m. (lunch) or after 6 p.m. (diner)
About the weekdays, the closest to the weekend, the better.

Are you on a cruise-ship?

In this case, the meeting point would be at the Pier. The guide will wait for you at the exit of the ship holding a sign with your name on it. In order to make the most of the tour, you will reach the starting point by taxi.

Yes! I want to enjoy this tour

A unique way to explore the trendiest area in Barcelona: eating and drinking! Cheers.

Anna was great! She was informative without being boring, catered to our specific sight-seeing requests, and kept us fully enlightened and entertained. How this woman has so much knowledge, I don't know! She literally had the answer to every single question we had. We stopped for a coffee mid-way as she could sense we were getting tired from walking and I enjoyed chatting to her socially. I 100% recommend her for anyone going to Barcelona!

Anne M.

We engaged Anna for a 3 days private tour in Barcelona. She is very dedicated and knowledgeable on every places of interest in Barcelona. When my child wasn't feeling too well during the trip, she was flexible and accommodative to our last minute changes and requests. My family truly enjoyed our trip in Barcelona and had a wonderful time spent with Anna. If you are looking for customized private tour, Anna will be the best person to engage!!

We concur with all the previous wonderful reviews of Anna and her team. We ended up having three tours with Anna and each one was different, informative and superb. If you would prefer to soak in the city and keep your nose out of the guide books and maps contact Barcelonina. Our trip to Spain had been derailed but once we contacted Jordi, everything started to improve. These folks have it together, make great suggestions on what to do and are patient with letting you make up your mind. Barcelona would not have been nearly as fascinating without them.
