Great
We really enjoyed this tapas tour! It was a great combination of history and food, and we loved how we were encouraged to meet and talk with the other tour guests. I was very impressed with the amount of food and drinks we were served, and we definitely left full! I love Devour tours so much and look for them in every city I visit!

A wonderful insider's look at Barcelona! Really brought the place alive and gave the opportunity to ask questions and receive some local recommendations and tips. Our guide, Dom, was excellent!

Great tour. Initially thought it was quite expensive but it ended up being four and a half hours with a fascinating insight into the history of Barcelona and the history of Spanish food all presented entertainingly by Alex (the male one) who just needs to research Eccles Cakes! 3 tapas bars visited with plenty of food and drink to see you through the evening. Bravo, great trip
