This carefully crafted experience is designed to exceed your expectations in a city known for food. Your gourmet guide will lead you through your culinary adventure with discussions on all things concerning Spanish and Catalan gastronomy, and all the while you will be entertained with accounts of the rich history of Catalonia, including some interesting and quirky aspects of the culture. You will partake in in the best gastronomic delights that Barcelona has to offer while participating in an easy-paced, walking itinerary that will stop in 5 to 6 different venues, each of which are meant to infuse you with a brilliant snapshot of the local foodie scene.

The objective is to elevate your food experience by collaborating with the finest gourmet eateries in the city, including hidden gems not even known to some locals. We are talking true luxurious temples of food and wine where you will sample the best.

What can you expect? Taste rare Catalan cheeses, foie gras mi-cuit, Iberian cured meats, truffled canalones, oysters, rustic hand-rubbed 'pan con tomate', artisan desserts, and surprise treats along the way.

Whatever the day's itinerary, and it is rarely the same, each venue and dish is a welcome surprise and served with a carefully paired Catalan wine as per the chefs' recommendations. Wine pairings include an impressive range of wines from D.O.Q. Priorat, D.O. Penedes, D.O. Cava, and others. One of the venues includes a flight of 3 or 4 wines aimed to illustrate the contrast and versatility of the Spanish and Catalan options.

After this adventure, you will understand why Catalonian chefs are rated the finest and most creative in the world.

Shore Excursions

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
