1. Barcelona, Spain
Ever since El Bulli hit the headlines as the best restaurant in the world (no longer), Barcelona has been high on the list for tours for foodies. Tours must include a visit to the famous Boqueria market found about two thirds of the way up the Ramblas. Inside the grand entrance is a noisy world of food, glorious food from the world over. A multitude of tourists and locals clamour around the heavily laden stalls, with floors slippery with fruit skins and melted ice all adding to this unique experience. Foodie tours in Barcelona offer a menu of visits to haute cuisine establishments, a tour of best tapas bars, or best places to eat off the beaten track.
