Owner description: Granada Tapas Tours offers food & drink EXPERIENCES with a knowledgeable, friendly, local expert. It´s so much more than `just´ a food tour! The idea is to show you how it´s done & then you try out what you´ve learned. We want you to feel local, live like a local for a few hours & finish with a feeling you´ve seen into Granada´s rich & varied historical as well as modern local culture. Suitable for friends, families & groups (from 2 to 50 people).

Andrea was our guide for the evening and we were joined by a couple from Australia.
The five of us were more like a group of friends out for an evening.
The bars we visited were all very different and the Tapas were also different and delicious.
The selection of drinks covered local and national areas and as a non alcoholic drinker I was introduced to the Granada soft drink speciality which was very refreshing.

I booked this as a surprise for my girlfriend during our visit to Granada in April. We met Roberto who proceeded to show us an array of interesting tapas and different bars we wouldn't have discovered by ourselves. WE were the only people on the tour that night, but there were no issues. Roberto was very informative and friendly and it felt more like a friend showing you around Granada. He also gave a brief overview of the areas we were in and some other tapas bars we could visit during our remaining time in Granada, which we visited and can confirm they were excellent selections. A tremendous night out!

In late April we were 11 adults going to Granada and I was responsible for the first night of entertainment.

After quite some investigating on the internet I decided to contact Granada Tapas tour and Gayle Mackie. The communication went smoothly and Gayle was prompt to answer my questions and requests on both phone and mail.

We ended up booking a combination tour: a two hour walk to the historical hot spots of Granada, followed by the tapas tour to three different tapas bars and ended up with Flamingo in Albazin. A truly unique experience and what a fantastic evening in Granada !

We even had Gayle helping us with reservations for dinner for the two other evenings. She guided us to perfect restaurants which met our demands and expectations spot-on – and at a reasonable price !

Gayle is a fantastic tour guide, filling in the walks with great sense of humor and rich history lessons about Granada. She was very informative and engaging. She is a brilliant performer and though she is a real professional she was more like a good friend to us and we really enjoyed our time with her.

On the tapas tour we did get wonderful tapas and both Riojas and Riberas at bars I doubt we would have found our self.
As responsible of the arrangement I did get a lot recognition and praise from my fellow travel companions.

We all would not only recommend this tour in general – it is good value for money - and Gayle as a fantastic guide in particular to anyone who will listen ! We would say it is a must, when you visit the lovely town of Granada.

We will definitely book he again next time we get back to Granada!

Gayle opened our eyes to a wonderful aspect of Spain: Tapas! This was our first time in Spain, and we were very unsure about the whole process of ordering tapas, so when we saw the excellent reviews of this tour, we knew we had to book with Granada Tapas Tours. Gayle made it very enjoyable and opened our eyes to new experiences. Her explanations of food and drink are interlaced with tidbits of information about Spain and Granada. We took the "Gourmet Tour", which doesn't visit as many bars, but certainly doesn't mean less food or wine. Gayle is such a warm person, that it was like meeting a dear friend. This is a definite "must" for those who have never been to Granada, or Spain, before.

Thank you Mary. Tapas are indeed so important in Granada and it´s great to chat about the local food and wine, while sampling both at the same time. Kind regards, Gayle

Did this tour in October last year and am SO glad I did! I was travelling on my own so it was a fabulous way to get out and really tread the tapas circuit without feeling too conspicuously alone. Four bars, four drinks, four tapas as well as good company and interesting anecdotes, all very reasonably priced. The bars are off the beaten tourist-track, well chosen to provide great contrast, but one constant is that the food and wine are excellent at all of them. We were just a small group of four, one couple and two singles, plus Gayle. Gayle is brilliant at what she does: as well as finding great bars with good tapas (and catering for one guy’s dietary restrictions), she entertained us with snippets of information about Granada’s past. She’s bright, articulate, really knows and loves Granada, and has a great sense of humour. The evening felt like a lovely get together with friends, rather than a paid tour – thanks to Gayle’s talent for making it all work so well. Don’t miss this when in Granada!
