Very personal, perfect food places

Our guide from spanish food sherpas, Laura, did it perfectly well. A group of two, we visited 3 different restaurants with high quality food and 3 places to taste the products of granada province (jamon, queso and nuts). A super nice experience in a foody town :-) To recommend and a trip to granada should be started with such a tour to find the REAL places to go.

Kate Obolenskaya is a smiling guide full of advice.

Visit of places, (food) shops, bars and typical restaurants. Far away and restaurants for tourists. We were able to discover and taste pomegranate and / or Spanish specialties, including award-winning cheese and wine, and the pionono local dessert. Kate also gave us lots of advice, areas to avoid, dishes to avoid (eg the paella not great with pomegranate), and even historic places to do or those overrated. In short, an excellent meeting and a very good experience. We only regret one thing, it is that the best gastronomic artisans encountered is not a merchant website to order from home once returned. Thank you Loïc & Nes

Very nice walk, definitely recommended, but (too) expensive

Nice, enthusiastic guide, who spoke very clearly. Tasted very tasty dishes. The Iberian ham tasting was disappointing. In a case where we mainly tasted chocolate, we got two very small slices of ham. That was the whole tasting. That's why I thought the tour was very pricey. Furthermore, definitely a tour to recommend.
