We had a fantastic time with Devour Tours in Barcelona. We loved the mix of culture and history in between the various stops. All the traditional food and drinks were high quality! A great guide makes a difference. Ariana was absolutely fabulous and orangized! She kept the group engaged the whole time and made it a personable experience for everyone. You could tell how passionate she is and very knowledgeable in the food and culture. Thank you so much!

Wonderful tour with the best part being our guide Mick. The combination of his knowledge of history, his experience being a chef and an unbeatable personality made this one of the best tours I have taken. Highly recommend this experience.

We did the Tapas, Taverns and History tour last night. Our guide, Valentina was so knowledgeable, she took us to the most amazing places and the food & drinks were delicious. She pointed out areas I had walked by earlier in the day that I had no idea of the historical significance. I would highly recommend this tour.

My husband and I are in our 30’s and we travel a lot. We did the tour in Barcelona with Valentina and she was an absolute delight. Her knowledge of history and of intimate tapas and wine locales made the tour unforgettable. We have already booked another tour with Devour Spain for next week. The tour was wonderful!
