Dominic was an excellent guide. Learned so much more than we ever thought we would. The sites, venues, food were all outstanding. Can’t say excellent enough. Small group size was great. Wouldn’t hesitate to take another Devour Tour again.

We have taken a evening tapas tour in Seville with Devour 6 years ago and were looking forward to another in Barcelona. we took a morning food tour Tastes & Traditions of Barcelona Food Tour and we found it rather basic. of course Iberian ham and local cheese is delicious, same with candy and Paella. But I did not feel like we ate anything unique or like locals. I would add that our tour guide was rather "standard" about the information provided. again, nothing special that we couldn't have read ourselves or provided by any tour. Maybe because it was a mid-morning tour??

Awesome experience and would recommend to others. Our guide was very knowledgeable and provided a lot of history and side notes. The walking tour pace was just right for me (bad knee arthritis). Thanks Alex and Devour Tours!

One of the best tours we have ever done. Our guide Santi was very informative and took us to places away from the usual crowded areas of the city. Lots of local information and great variety of food and drinks. Highly recommend this tour
