What a fantastic group we had — they made it! Raul was a good guide (though a little tired at times). The food was a mixed bag: the first place was utterly amazing, the next places were fine but nothing too special. We did go to a liquor bar after thanks to Raul and this was one of the best parts!

We had a great bunch of people which made the whole experience relaxing. We all got more and more loaded as the ‘crawl’ built up momentum. Raul was a great director giving us details of the cuisine, the drinks and the history of the 4 tapas bars we visited. He did say we were such a great group that we could go to a 5th bar, and he ‘doesn’t just say this to all the groups’ so we ended up at a Gin bar. Between you and me I think he does tell all the groups this but by then we’re 4 sails to the wind, so who cares. All good fun. X

Hillary was an awesome guide, very knowledgeable and passionate about Spain and educating us. Great storyteller and made the tour very interesting. As for the tapas, they were good but was expecting more tapas as majority of them were tiny pieces of finger food. It was more like 8 tapas along with some drinks, every place offered a bread basket which you’ll need if you want to be full. Overall a good time but expensive for the amount of food.
