The Best Tour Ever! We visited 3 local restaurants and many interesting places in Barcelona while walking. I learned so much from this tour and can honestly say it was one of my favorite things from my trip. Dominic was an excellent tour guide and followed up with an email that same night. I highly recommend Devour Tours and will take another tour with them the next time I visit Spain.
A FABULOUS TOUR! Jaume our tour guide was a triple threat... Catalan, sommelier & foodie! If you want to experience good food & wine and learn more about the culture of Spain this is a must!
Our tour guide, Dominic, was super friendly and knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the food, wine, and history of Barcelona. The tour was a perfect blend of wandering around the gothic quarter and stopping in family-owned tapas bars, bodegas and restaurants. It was definitely enough to equal dinner for the evening. 🙂 We have a couple more Devour tours booked for Madrid and Sevilla and now can’t wait to try them. Thanks, Dom, for the awesome evening!
