    Join us as we lead you on a journey to taste the true flavors of Granada as you discover this magical city’s rich history and culture. While Granada is famous for the breathtaking Alhambra—the Moorish palace perched above the city—it isn’t the only wonderful thing to discover in this city!

    On our three-hour food, tapas and culture tour, you’ll taste flavors with fascinating origins, learn local customs, eat authentic tapas and understand the rich story of this beautiful city. This walking foodie tour is the perfect way to get a true taste of Granada! By the end you’ll be happily full and have a deeper understanding of Granada’s food, culture and history. And you’ll see how all three tie together into one fascinating story!

    To get things started, you’ll have breakfast just like the locals do! Enjoy freshly fried churros in a famous churrería on the edge of one of Granada’s most emblematic squares while your guide tells you the history of this delectable treat, as well as where the word churros comes from!

    Next, you’ll wind your way through the heart of this city with deep Moorish and Christian roots. You’ll discover hidden monuments and famous landmarks including Granada’s stunning cathedral, the old Moorish market and iconic squares. Watch the city of Granada come to life as your expert guide tells some of its most fascinating stories.

    Next up is Granada’s most famous family-run pastry shop, which has been baking the city’s best pastries since the 19th century! Once inside this gorgeous establishment, you’ll try their most famous treat! After that, you’ll visit two hidden, family-run stores to try two Andalusian staples—freshly fried fish and mouthwatering acorn-fed Iberian ham. Not only will you get to taste these well-loved classics, but you’ll also discover their origin and history, too!

    Before you hit the tapas bars, there’s one more very special place to visit—a hidden establishment that will transport you back to medieval Moorish Granada! At this stop, you’ll taste a sweet and savory homemade pastry packed with flavor and tradition from the past.

    Last but not least, it’s time for you to learn how to do tapas like a local! You’ll visit one of our absolute favorite tapas bars in the center where you’ll not only try delicious food, but you’ll also get a crash course in doing tapas like a local from your expert guide!

    Reviews for Devour Tours

    Great question! A Devour Granada food tour is a fun, fascinating and (most importantly!) delicious introduction to the majestic city of Granada. Our food tours visit some of the city’s best traditional eateries, including tapas bars, local markets, taverns and shops, and hidden gems that few even know exist! You’ll taste some of Granada's best local food, and gain fascinating insight into its age-old traditions. We keep our groups small and every tour is led by an English-speaking guide who knows Granada like the back of their hand, and loves it to bits.
    The tour lasts approximately 3 hours (give or take 15 minutes). The tour covers approximately 2.5 kilometers (1.5 miles).
    Don’t worry, you won’t be part of a massive hoard following a guide with a flag or a flamenco fan! We keep our groups small and intimate, so the tour can squeeze into small, hidden places and you get personal time with your guide. The maximum number of guests on this tour is usually 12 people and we only require two guests to operate a tour.
    We want as many people to be able to enjoy our tours as possible. Scroll up the page a little to see what dietary restrictions this tour is adaptable for.
    Families love getting a true taste of Granada together on our Foodie Feast & Cultural Walking Tour. The tastes are suited to kids and teens, and your guide will bring a fun worksheet full of games and puzzles for younger kids to complete during the tour. We also offer child and teen pricing. We look forward to having your family along!
    The tour does not include transport to the meeting place, or from the ending point (ask your guide for guidance at the end of the tour if you’re not sure where you are).Also, please feel free to tip your guide if you think they did a great job! The standard gratuity in the tour industry is 10-15%.
    Most importantly, your appetite! Also, keep in mind that tours take place rain or shine, so please dress appropriately and bring an umbrella if it looks like rain. Also, we recommend you wear comfortable shoes as you’ll be walking a few kilometres. Finally, while we do serve water on the tour at some stops, we recommend you bring a bottle of water.
    Of course! We regularly offer private tours to families, groups of friends and corporate groups. Email us your group size, the date you'd like the tour and anything else you'd like us to keep in mind, and we'll get back to you within 24 hours.
