I really enjoyed our tour of Barcelona with Ariana Cardenas. She was very knowledgeable about the city and history of the food/drinks. There was a little more walking than expected but still really fun and educational. I'd definitely recommend this tour.

The tour was excellent and included all the foods I wanted to try in Barcelona. We especially enjoyed the seafood paella (with all the shells off). Our guide Hector was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. I highly recommend Devour Tours!

Wonderful tour experience for Barcelona local food. Great for the beginning of one’s trip to learn about local cuisine and other great eateries. Our guide was great with local knowledge of cuisine and history that made the tour interesting. Thank you Val.

Had a great food tour with Alex, the food tastings were really good but the stories and history made it special. Thanks Alex.

Ariana was such a great guide! Her knowledge of the city, history, and everything food related was wonderful! We had such a great time! It was definitely one of the highlights of our trip! Our only regret is that we didn't do it sooner so that we would have known more earlier.
