Overview

Las Palmas old town is a secret mecca for foodies, full of tiny hidden bars and authentic restaurants boasting an array of tapas treats to titillate your taste buds. Take a walk through the charming colonial streets with a local and try regional specialties that you won't find in your guidebook! As we walk, youll learn about the unique cuisine of the Canary Islands and discover some fascinating facts about their history. Our tour ends with a full belly and a spectacular sunset from one of our favourite secret spots does it get much better than that?!

Know More about this tour

Your tapas tour begins in the green and compact San Telmo park, a hub where locals like to gather, which happily plays host to different festivals nearly every other week. We'll get ourselves recharged with a typical Canarian cup of coffee and a snack in the city's best street café, under the welcome shade of towering palm trees. As we sip our coffee, well talk about how the city has evolved under the influence of different countries and cultures and find out more about its fascinating history prolific explorers Christopher Columbus and Sir Francis Drake spent time on the island.

We'll take a walk to the islands' biggest market, down streets full to the brim with quaint local shops and enjoy our first tapas stop at an old Barber Shop, thats now been transformed into a bar. Here youll find out how long it takes to make traditional Canarian potatoes and about the locals favourite secret sauces, which are served literally all over the Canary Islands.

Our next stop is the city's most beloved beer bar. Some local beers are unique to this joint and can only be enjoyed here, so those are the ones we will focus on! Well chat about the variety of wine and beer produced in Gran Canaria, which brands are the best (in our humble opinion!) and where to go to purchase a tasty gift or souvenir to take home.

Well continue to amble our way down the historic streets before stopping at the citys oldest café for a treat. Previous illustrious guests include General Franco, Salvador Dali and Brad Pitt. We'll enjoy another snack here  maybe the same item from the menu that our famous friends ordered?!

As we continue to walk through the streets of the capital, we'll talk about how Canarian gastronomy has evolved, what is so special about this rich agricultural region and why our local food is different from Spanish food.

Finally, to round off a perfect afternoon/evening we'll stop for a drink and more tapas at a charmingly authentic bar that only opens its doors on selected days for 3 - 4 hours at a time. This is truly a locals haunt; you won't see any tourists here and the drinks are fabulous and the barmen are very happy and friendly!

Before you go your own way, we'll make sure you leave the tour with a whole bunch of ideas on things to see, do and, most importantly, eat, so that your gastro experiences can continue throughout your stay in Gran Canaria. Buen provecho!
