"Taste the real Barcelona" is the motto of this creative young project that aims to introduce hungry and thirsty travellers to the delights of Catalan cuisine, with a dash of cultural information on the side. Guests can choose between three activities, the first of which is a tapas tasting tour that takes you in a small group to explore some of the city's little-known tapas bars where your guide will help you select the specialist dishes of each place (whether that's refined razor clams and other seafood delicacies, or earthy Catalan meat balls and Spanish croquettes!) all paired with some great wines and beverages. The second is a craft beer tasting tour which introduces hop lovers to some of the excellent artisan ales that are currently being brewed in the region of Catalonia. The guide for this tour is a brewer himself so he really knows his stuff! The third experience on offer is their Hipster Bar Crawl... a fun romp through the local nightlife for those who are too old / cool for a traditional pub crawl. The ethos of the company is to use food and drink as a way of getting under the skin of the city, so if that sounds like your thing check out their website.
I really enjoyed the tapas tour. It was a really fun and casual way to explore the city and have a roaming dinner at the same time. All the venues they took us to were great especially the bodega at the end. It was standing room only in there, but amazing atmosphere and great wines. Would do again without hesitation.

We went on this very in depth beer tour where we learned a ton about the history of beer and got to taste some great brews in a total of three different bars. The guide was extremely enthusiastic and the tour overran by nearly an hour but we were all having so much fun that we just kept drinking! Would thoroughly recommend
