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.

A really enjoyable, delicious, and informative tour where we got to try some of the best tapas we’ve had in very authentic locations. Loved how we learnt a bit about the significance of the area we were eating and got to try really high quality raciones and drinks. You will leave extremely full (we skipped lunch beforehand and we were still bursting at the seams by the end). James did a great job filling in last minute for Lindsay who couldn’t make it, and even suggested an additional optional stop after the tour for those of us who wanted to continue which he joined. Overall highly recommend this experience.
