Gothic Quarter (Barri Gotic)
The next place awaits us as we navigate our way through one of the most beautiful squares of the Gothic Quarter and its adjacent small streets that still retain their old medieval ambiance. Our next stop is a bar with a beautiful, secret garden where we’ll taste Spanish ham and pa amb tomàquet (bread with tomato) accompanied by a nice white or red wine (as you do!). From there, our Barcelona tapas tour continues as we cross the old heart of Barcino, the name given by the Romans to the city that they founded more than two thousand years ago, where we will identify four columns from old Troy and the transformations that the Old Town experienced.

Desi was a wonderful...
Desi was a wonderful guide- fill of knowledge about the city and about food. And she was very vibrant and energetic. The food we tasted and the venues we visited were wonderful. We would definitely recommend the tour and Desi.
Great food, wine and History
We had a wonderful tour of the old Gothic Quarter. Juan, our guide was extremely knowledgeable and very personable. We visited some of the lesser known establishments and enjoyed ourselves just as if we were locals.
If you are ever going to do a food tour... do this one!
I have done close to 100 food tours all over the world, this is one of the very best. Our guide Daisy was wonderful! She was knowledgable about the history and culture of Barcelona, and was passionate about sharing this with us. One thing that makes this food tour special, (and tours in general with the company Intrepid/Urban travel adventures) is they make each tour authentic to location in support of the local communities. Each place we visited, and each item we tried was not just local to Catalonia, but to Barcelona specifically. One highlight of the tour is the oldest book store in Barcelona, a family run business, that serves a traditional cuisine in a handful of tables in the book store. It is really quite special when you can experience a culture and it's authenticity. I highly recommend you do this tour.
Our tour guide Desire was very good with the tour, she even gave us tips on where to go and other tourist attractions. The food was delicious and highly recommended.love the tour
