What You Can Expect
The exact itinerary will be decided on the day of your tour by your guide; however you will definitely visit at least three of Granada’s best tapas bars to feast on small plates of specialties like classic paella and Spanish omelet (may vary depending on availability). Alongside the food, savor wine, draught beer or soft drinks (one glass in each bar) and enjoy tapas just as the Spanish do!
On your way from bar to bar, your guide will point out some of Granada’s top historical sights, too. Learn of Granada when it ruled by the Moors (Spain’s bygone Muslims) on a stroll past Plaza Nueva and the Royal Chancery of Granada; see where the city’s present-day Muslims hang out at Calderería Vieja, a bustling street lined with tea houses; and hear of local Muslim prayer traditions on a visit to the Church of San José (outside only) .
Marvel at the Mudejar-style architecture of Santa Ana Church, and admire views of the UNESCO-listed Alhambra palace complex and mountains of Sierra Nevada from Mirador San Nicolás. Look out for the cármenes (grand houses) and Arabic cisterns that typify the streets of Albaicin, and learn all about the changes to the neighborhood since the days of the Moors.
After 2.5 hours exploring the area and its beloved tapas bars, walk back to the start point where your tour finishes.
Such a fun way to see a new city. Emilio, our guide, was fantastic! Would absolutely recommend this tour to any visitor to Spain and Granada.
We really loved Emilio, but the tour was not what we thought it would be. We expected to learn about the food and wine of Spain, but he spoke more about the history of Granada and the Alhambra. We loved that there were only 4 of us on the tour. I think this tour could be really great if the guide would speak more about the food and wine. But we LOVED Emilio!
