    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 2.5 hours (give or take 15 minutes). The walking distance of the tour covers approximately 2km/1.3 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 experience can squeeze into small, hidden places and you get personal time with your guide. The maximum number of guests on this tour is usually 10 people and we only require two guests to operate an experience.
    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.
    This tour is a great fit for curious teens who would enjoy learning about Granada and Spain's fascinating history. We offer teen pricing and they will be served non-alcoholic drinks. Given the evening nature of this tour, we do restrict it to guests aged 13 years and older. If you're a family with younger kids, check out our Foodie Feast and Cultural Walking Tour.
    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.
