You may be wondering why you'd want to do an organized tapas tour when a part of the fun is finding the best tapas bars. In some cities it's easier than in others to get tapas. In the very best cities, the tapas is free.
But in bigger cities like Seville, Barcelona and Madrid, the tapas bars are more spaced out and finding the best ones can be difficult. That's where a tour like one of those below can come in handy.
1. Barcelona Tapas ToursFor those on a tighter budget, there is a tour that combines a cycle tour with two tapas at a bar at the end of your ride. See Gaudi architecture, sculptures and the Ciutadella park before stopping for something to eat. See more about this tour here: Barcelona Cycle Tour with Tapas.
If you'd prefer not to cycle, there is also a walking tour with tapas tour. See the Ramblas and the Gothic Quarter while sampling some excellent tapas along the way.
Note that Barcelona isn't renowned for its tapas - the bars you will visit will be aimed at tourists. That isn't to say you won't get something typically Spanish - it just won't be typical of Barcelona.
Enjoy a walking tour of downtown Madrid while sampling some of the city's culinary delights along the way too. With so many bars and cafes in Spain's capital, a little helping hand in deciding where to go can really make things easier.
This tour takes you to four tapas bars, where your guide will help you decipher the menu and make sure you get a good idea of tapas culture.
This tour is not a guided tour of Madrid's major monuments, though you will obviously see a number of the sights and are free to ask your guide questions about the city. Read about sightseeing tours of Madrid
See the best of Seville while sampling local tapas and some excellent Spanish wine. The tour is short, but all food and wine is included. Seville is one city where tapas is common - but you may find you pay more than you should. With this tour you will get what you pay for - that is, a walk with an expert guide around Seville's old town, who will teach you about the history of tapas and of the city while you sample three tapas bars.
This tour is a little expensive - you'd better off walking around Granada instead (by yourself), getting a nice surprise at how easy it is to get good tapas. But if Granada isn't on your itinerary and you're in Seville for only a short time and want to get the very best tapas, this tour is your best option.
