Everyone knows Barcelona is a city with an amazing gastronomic tradition. That is why there are many businesses that offer visitors the opportunity to not only visit the city but also to explore its gastronomy. One of the leaders in the food and wine tour market is the Food Wine Tours company.
In business since 2004, Food Wine Tours offers fantastic experiences for those who want to try the local cuisine and also want to explore the wine regions of Barcelona. They are so good at what they do, that they received the first prize in Barcelona for the best wine and tour company in the region.
Each tour is given by a local guide, who will not only take visitors to try excellent food and wine but will also share historical facts about the areas that are visited.
