Join us for a panoramic walk of Granada, from the hills of the Albaicin down to its old town. Be joined by a local guide who will teach you all you need to know about the beautiful Spanish city.
Vibrant neighbourhoods and gastronomy. What more could you want? We have combined two of our favourites to bring you the true essence of Granada. This fun and tasty tour takes you from the Arab Quarter down to the Old Town while enjoying local flavours.
The meeting point is Plaza Nueva, “The New Square” yet, ironically the oldest square in the city. From here enter into the maze of Albaicin, the “Arab Quarter”. Be transported back in time as we meander its streets and wind through the “calle de las teterías”. Witness how the influence of this period has enriched present day life, architecture and of course, food. Try your first tapas, a dish inspired from these times.
Then it’s on to join the bustle of the central marketplace and it’s juicy looking produce. Soak up local ambience as you enjoy some of our favourite drinks and tapas, a must is the local jamon asado (roasted ham). At each of the tapas bars, you will have a drink and a choice of one plate to share – which means that if you are in a group with a few people, you will get to try a dozen different dishes!
Next, wander through the city’s monuments, discover where the crypts of Queen Isabella and Ferdinand are hidden and learn about this other side of the city. We will enter the heart of Granada’s buzzing social scene to find a lively tavern to end. Of course, it’s also time for your first pionono, the typical dessert, born in Granada with its own unique story. Join us to find out more, and see why it’s the locals’ favourite!
We can accommodate any dietary needs as Spanish food can include vegetarian, vegan, non-pork and other options. Please notify us in advance.

A traveler since the age of 16. After a motorcycling trip in West Africa, I returned home to Seville, Spain with a new perspective on the importance of travel for both locals and visitors. Taking a closer look at Seville, I realised that the city I knew and loved was not the same one being packaged to unknowing travellers. The culture that made Seville so special to me was completely inaccessible to tourists. I was determined to find a way to give fellow travellers an authentic experience of Seville and Andalusia. A way to be invited into the culture as a close friend and not just a tourist.
Enjoy learning about the rich Spanish history and culture of the city of Granada as you taste your way through it. Be led by a local guide who will answer any questions you might have about the beautiful city, and come back as an expert in authentic Spanish tapas.
