It was my first food tour in Spain and I loved it. The drinks and tapas tasting was very nice with variety and unique combinations. It was also very interesting to meet people from other parts of the world. Our guide taught us a lot about the neighborhoods, the culture and the history of the food and drinks, he was also very attentive. I really appreciated your kindness. Afterwards we were able to enjoy a great traditional flamenco show. Thanks for this tour. I highly recommend this experience.

The tapas tour took us to some traditional gems with interesting history and insights on the way. The flamenco was exceptional with a glass of wine and some some cheese and olives. Our host Agustin was excellent and clearly has an excellent relationship with the tapas bars and the flamenco theatre. Would highly recommend.
