a very exciting tour with a typical Spanish flair

We all really enjoyed this tour and you really immerse yourself in the Spanish nightlife. Our guide Javier was super nice and very entertaining. He made a good selection of tapas and encouraged us to try fancy tapas. It was a great evening, many thanks to Javier, we would be happy to recommend you to others.

You have to book tapas in the evening!

Our guide Javier was the perfect evening companion! He taught us so much about these special Spanish delicacies that we were absolutely thrilled! The sumptuous excursions to several "pubs" were garnished with all kinds of information about Spain's food culture, whereby other curiosities were not concealed, such as the channel below the counter - probably unthinkable in Germany for hygienic reasons ... So: It was a great evening which is highly recommended!
