Description details

Depends of the tour. The most walkable tour is the Sweets tour, been an historical walking tour with Sweets along the way. Otherwise our tours are more focus on food rather than conventional walking tours. So usually we walk an average of 1 to 2 km big maximum on our tours.

 

If I do not drink alcohol, can I get discount?

Unfortunately no, we do not have any specific deals with our partners for non alcoholic drinkers since soft drinks are even more expensive than wine in this country!

 

How much food is served on the tour?

We have a different tours, but all of them have been created to let you enjoy a large range of food in a very lay back attitude. We like to eat, we like to drink, we love to take time for that. Food needs time, so do we!

 

What types of food are served on the tour?

Local food! We like to propose you a large range of local delights and usually do not go for stereotypes. You might for example not eat paellas and sangrias on our tours. We will be happy to provide you with good addresses for that, no doubt! But with us, you will eat and drink local products you might not eat on your own. That is the idea of a food tour, discover and learn with fun.

You do not need to print the voucher, if you have it on your phone, better! The guide will be posted right in front the meeting point and will probably come to you to ask if you are “a food lover” (this is the code :-))
