What you'll do

>>Airbnb's currently top rated Tapas experience in Barcelona<<

This is the only Tapas tour that takes you to a different part of the city, devoid of tourists, where you discover the locals’ go-to bars, the perfect place to practice your Spanish (no English menus!), and taste the most delicious bites Barcelona has to offer.

This is a full immersion in real Barcelona, where you’ll see the sense of community, and be able to interact with and feel like a local yourself.

During this food & drink experience I will show you a hidden and unexpected Barcelona, we will walk and visit the bars of my neighborhood, a 100% local community.

You'll eat and drink at family-owned places where grandpas and grandmas are still in charge of the kitchen, where they prepare all their tapas, and dishes you won't find in downtown. You'll taste a rich cuisine where local, fresh, and seasonal products pair well with traditional drinks, blissfully unaware of new food trends.

Expect the best homemade food, from artisanal cold cuts to fresh seafood. This experience pays homage to the classic tapas. Don't expect fancy preparations or places featured on travel guides. Come hungry & thirsty to indulge in our favorite drinks, from cava to vermouth.

Get ready to connect to our culture, and experience the true Barcelona!

Hi, I'm Atair. Food is my passion and the thing that I like the most is to share a table with fellow travelers.

Barcelona is one of the best places to eat on earth and I like to show visitors how we truly eat, so I created this experience to feature the tapas recipes I like the most and also introduce them to the people behind the counters: the bar owners that are my friends and make my experiences possible.

>> I host all my tours, I don't work for a food tour company, this makes the Experience much more intimate and I'm able to adapt it according to your preferences.

It has been an honor to show my favourite hidden gems to people with very diverse background, from San Francisco to Seoul.

Come hungry and let's have some fun!

Where you'll be

Where we'll meet
Encants Metro Station (Valencia/Aragó Exit - take the right side exit and wait for me in front of a kitchen cabinet store called "Don Bany Cuina"
Barcelona
Barcelona's city center is packed with tourist traps, so this tour takes place in my neighborhood, a non-touristy area and traditional area, called "El Clot".

During this 3-stop tour I will take you from the meeting point to the most authentic and hidden tapas bars, from an old school bodega to a place where a new breed of bar owners give a twist to traditional tapas.

Come hungry: expect generous food portions & drinks on all stops.

    Very much enjoyed this experience with my family! We went to very small restaurants that were family owned and felt like an immersion into Barcelona. Tasted the best handmade croquetas ever!!!

    Our family had a wonderful time learning and eating with Atair. The places he took us were exactly what we wanted. Mom and Pop places, full of character and good food. Buying a bottle of homemade vermouth was a great souvenir. Highly recommend this experience.

    We went to the tour with no major expectations but Atair made our experience so memorable that we wish to go to one such tour in all the other cities we plan to visit next! :)

    This was my favorite food tour during my trip to Barcelona. Atair does a great job as host, and brings you to places you wouldn’t even notice otherwise. Each place was delicious and had the best food, and had it’s own local vibe and story. I would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to enjoy local tapas but from a local perspective.
