The chef will introduce you to a variety of the famous appetizers such as patatas bravas, pimientos de padrón, tortilla de patatas, chorizo, and of course the famous dry-cured ham, el jamón. Learn how to make your own pan con tomate, the most typical Catalan tapa, and how to build traditional Basque pintxos or montaditos, the tapas with toothpicks. Then you can enjoy your creations accompanied by some lovely sangría. While you are eating your tapas and homemade pintxos, the chef will cook the paella de marisco. You’ll be into the adjacent open kitchen to stand around the large paellera, the traditional round, shallow pan made of polished steel that the paella de marisco will be prepared in. As the chef begins to prepare the paella you’ll hear about the history of the dish, the ingredients used, and the steps in the preparation. With the paella simmering in the kitchen you’ll be invited over to the bar where you’ll learn all there is to know about sangría, the world famous Iberian wine punch that dates back to medieval times.

This tour was great and one of our highlights in Barcelona. Our tour guide was Paulina, she was very informative. At the end of our tour, we also met one of the other tour guides that does this tour, his name is JuanCarlos. The food and drinks are delicious! Come hungry because there will be plenty of food!

The tour through the old cellar was incredible and the wine tasting at the end was perfect! It would be nice if there were chairs to sit down and enjoy the wine but it was still a great experience I highly recommend!

the tour itself was fabulous but be warned. we arrived at 6pm as per the instructions but the start time is actually 5pm...

It gave us a variety of experience all in one day.From a historic place down to a tranquil coast and lovely beach.

A lot of fun. Highly recommended . Many of our group were from all over Europe and friendly to talk to.
