If you are visiting Granada, this food tour is a must. Katia led us through streets and little alley ways that we would never of found on our own, all the while, giving us little bits of history and telling us interesting facts. The whole time was an absolute delight as we visited shops and restaurants, tasting tapas and wines along the way that were all exceptional. Katia shared her enthusiasm and knowledge for foods of Granada and the way of life and we have some lovely memories of the day that will serve us well for years to come!!

Very nice tour with our multi-language guide, who knew a lot about the food and the restaurants of Granada. A few nibbles of jamon and cheese, and a tasting o olive oil were followed by the visit to 2 excellent traditional restaurants. A very friendly introduction to the town's gastronomy.
