The tour of Barcelona was very informative and we ate well all along the way. This is totally our favorite way to visit new cities is by sampling the food. Our guide was very easy to talk to and had great information and tips for future visits. Would actually do this again when we return!

Working for a tour operator, it's always fun to explore new experiences in cities I haven't been. Our Tapas Tour with Devour was wonderful! I would say it was more of a cultural food tour, which is exactly what we wanted. Hector was a great guide, phenomenal personality and kept the group on the go. We will absolutely do a Devour tour again!

Dom is an amazing host/guide. He is knowledgeable, entertaining, and great at engaging everyone in conversation, hitting individual interests, and creating a friendly vibe among the entire group. Interesting history facts of Barcelona and the food was shared, along with travel tips and recommendations. Great tour to start your trip in Barcelona!

This was a very good tour, but there are improvements which I would suggest. First, it would have been nice if the guide had incorporated more of the history of Barcelona in explaining the foods. Most importantly, though, the tour would have been better if we tasted the sweet food items AFTER the savory. The paella was last and followed the very sweet nougat candy and the very sweet drink. That made the paella less enjoyable. And, it was probably terrific paella! So, I would suggest rearranging the food stops to make the tour more enjoyable.

Arianna was an excellent tour guide who beautifully engaged our group, responded to questions, had an obvious interest in both the history and the food in Barcelona, and seemed to love what she was doing.
