I was invited to join Wanderbeak on the food tour Savor Spain through Barcelona filled with Spanish food, sight, history and good energy.
We met up with our magnetic food guide Marwa on La Rambla, we walked to our first stop were we got to introduce ourselves properly over a drink.
With a big and warm smile Marwa introduced herself, Egyptian born and raised in Canada, working between Seattle and London, decided one day enough is enough, packed her bag with husband in tow and moved to Barcelona, which was her dream. Once in Barcelona she became her own boss and proud owner of Wanderbeak tours.
The Savor Spain food tour is aprox. 4 hours long spread over the old quarters of Barcelona, don’t get scared off thinking you will be rushed around.
The pace is relaxed and the overall walking is around 1,5 hours in total, during which there will be interesting sights and stories of dragons told by Marwa.
Our afternoon spent with Wanderbeak food tour we experienced the Spanish food scene with 6 salty and sweet stops. To kick-start the tour and our taste buds we got to savour one of my favourite spirits Vermut together with a selection of tapas at a place with a very particular history.
Marwa handpicks the gems visited on the Savor Spain food tour after thorough research. The business are family owned, each one with their own history and specialties.
As we are savouring the traditional eats and drinks from around Spain in the neighbourhoods Raval, Gòtic and Born, Marwa show us geographically on the map the different regions so we can easily follow the origins of the dishes. Who knew the tasty little green peppers “Pimiento de Padrón” came from Galicia?
All through the tour Marwa shares her passion for Barcelona with energy and enthusiasm, she make us all take part of the city and makes us feel like locals, who doesn’t want that?
The Savor Spain food tour give you value for your money, that’s for sure! Marwa has done a marvellous job putting this tour together, in every place we had eats and drinks of excellent quality and generous amounts.
We ended the great tour as we started it, with a cheers, good spirits and of course more food!
On the tour Marwa let us in on a little secret, Wanderbeak is putting together three new distinct tours, and all I can give is that I want to do them all!
