Know More about this tour

Meet your friendly local guide near Granadas Plaza Nueva, the citys oldest square, and then set off on your 2.5-hour walking tour around the citys Albaicin neighborhood to discover its best tapas bars. Spains passion for small-plate tapas meals is believed to have originated in the 13th century when King Alfonso decreed it law that bars must serve food with drinks. The bar owners grew elaborate with their offerings over the years, prompting the tantalizing tapas scene that is seen in Granada today.
The exact itinerary will be decided on the day of your tour by your guide; however you will definitely visit at least three of Granadas 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 Granadas top historical sights, too. Learn of Granada when it ruled by the Moors (Spains bygone Muslims) on a stroll past Plaza Nueva and the Royal Chancery of Granada; see where the citys present-day Muslims hang out at Calderera Vieja, a bustling street lined with tea houses; and hear of local Muslim prayer traditions on a visit to the Church of San Jos (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 Nicols. Look out for the crmenes (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.

  • Great guide and super experience!

  • Thanks to Anna, our Guide, for a very enjoyable and fascinating introduction to the city and its history, and the area of Albaicin in particular. From Plaza San Nicolas, just before sunset, we saw the Alhambra and #39;s walls shining red. We were also introduced to some Bodegas and cafe-bars along the way.

  • Our tour guide was awesome! Very friendly and knowledgeable about Granada. Definitely recommend.

  • I went to the address provided and the venue was shut. I have sent several messages and as yet no one has answered. Jacqui

  • We had a great time on this relaxed tapas walking tour! Our guide, Victor was knowledgeable, charming and took us to great little local places through routes we definitely wouldn't have found on our own. The finale was the beautifully atmospheric Alhambra lit up in the late evening. This was a lovely family memory and one of the highlights of our holiday.

  • One of the best tours we did in our trip to Spain was the Granada Tapas tour offered by Viator. Was skeptical to book at first given that other tapas tours were reviewed more highly, but this one was awesome. Emilio was our guide for the evening and he took us around the city and up into the Albaicin for amazing views, especially of the Alhambra. We stopped at 4 different Tapas places which were all different and fun. I would say that this is about 2/3 walking and 1/3 tapas, so if you are looking for just the food and drink, it may not be for you. But it was perfect for our first night in Granada!

  • Victor was an excellent guide. His knowledge of the history of the area was fascinating and the tapas and wines were great. I would highly recommend this tour and Victor!

  • 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!

  • On booking this tour I wasn't aware that Granada was a Spanish city that still served free tapas with every drink. The tour guide gave us a little bit of information on the city but was leaving bars before we even finished our drink. Basically we paid a lot of money for eight drinks, rip off.
