Meet your private, experienced foodie guide and let them take you through the narrow alleyways of La Boqueria Market, which is Barcelona’s most popular market and where even the best professional chefs get their ingredients from.
Your guide knows their way around inside the market, and on busy days, you will avoid the crowded main alleyways, and start your search for some of the best local delicacies in the smaller, more intimate parts of the market. Remember that these small, hidden stalls supply the most distinguished restaurants in the city.
From olives to ham, from edible flowers to salted cod and from sweet treats to delicious ice-cream, this is your chance to taste the exquisite flavors of Barcelona. Bear in mind that we have designed it so that your children will have as much fun as you.
Take your taste buds for an experience in Barcelona they will never forget!

Is this a private activity?

It sure is. Your family members will be the only ones participating in this food tour. There will be other people (regular clients) in the market as they are not made private for your family.

Are the parents staying with the children or separated?

We always promote a family-bonding moment, where parents and children enjoy an activity together as a family. So, parents and children will not be separated. However, if you choose to send your children on this activity alone, it is possible, provided that a babysitter accompanies the children regardless of the age, for insurance purposes (our guides are not responsible for the children).

How much food will we be tasting?

The quantity of food tasted would be equivalent to a full (normal sized) meal for adults.

When is the best time to visit the market?

La Boqueria can be visited in the morning every day of the week except Sundays and Mondays. During high season (summer), it can get very crowded in the main alleyways. Keep an eye on your children if it gets very crowded. The market is less crowded during off-peak season.

Can we choose another area for our food tour?

No, we have selected the best area to taste a wide variety of kid-friendly food from Barcelona and Spain.

Is it suitable for kids under 6 years old?

Kids under 6 years old are welcome to join. They might not like all the food tasted, but they can at least try. Just remember that the foodie guide is not a babysitter.

Is the food gluten free / can you cope with food allergies or other intolerances?

We can adapt to any food allergy or intolerance as long as this information has been given to us prior to the day of the activity. If information is given during the tour, your guide will do their best to adapt to your needs and tastes.

Can you make kosher food tastings (or any other special meals)?

Yes we can. Here too, please give this information ahead of time so the adapted the tour. Depending on the price of the meals in the area, extra costs may or may not be added.
