Frequently Asked Questions

What you need to know

Tapas Tours

What is the minimum number to book a group tapa tour?

2 is the minimum number

How big are the groups?

A mixed group tour will have a maximum of 8 people booked on it

How long is the tour?

A tapa tour is normally 2 hours 30 minutes minimum but if the event is going well, it may last up to 3 hours (this also depends on the day of the week – Fridays and Saturdays tend to be busier and it can take longer to get served in each bar and to get settled as we move from place to place.

Are there private tapas tours available?

Yes, private tours are available (suited best for 2-4 people)

While in Granada when should I schedule a tapa tour?

We suggest you book a route at the start of your stay in the city and then use what you learn with us and explore more tapas bars during the rest of the time you spend in Granada.

Can I bring my children on a tapa tour?

Yes, children are always welcome in bars (special prices apply):
0 – 8 (free) / 8 – 11 (20€) / 12 – 15 (25€) / 16+ (40€ adult price)

Do you cater for specific dietary requirements on a tapa tour?

Yes, with enough advance warning the bars can prepare tapas for vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian, lactose intolerant and any allergy affected customer.

If a tour date is booked, is there a waiting list system?

Yes.  During peak times (April to October) it´s common for weekends in particular to fill up.  Therefore we´ll place you on a waiting list and when a 2nd group forms we´ll be right back in touch with you.

What time do the tours start?

At lunch times we begin at 1pm (1:30 in summer) and in the evening we start at 8pm (8:30 in summer). If you require a tour at an earlier time it IS POSSIBLE.  Please look at the Tapa Sampling Route and / or contact us: enquiries@granadatapastours.com

Where do the tours start and end?

We’ll meet at a centrally located point in the city and normally the tours will end close to this point.  Granada is not a big city so you’ll easily be able to walk back to the meeting location.  We don’t have any set route so every tour is slightly different – that’s part of the experience!

What sort of food will be served on a tapa tour?

That’s all part of the experience!  Your tapa expert will guide you through the possibilities.  All sorts of food can be served: fish, meat, vegetables, classic tapa favourites modern fusion options…. As long as you’re ready to try (more or less!) anything we’ll show you how the Granada folks eat tapas!

If I arrive late can I still join a tapa tour?

If you arrive at the meeting point less than 30 minutes late it is more than likely you´ll be able to find the group in the first bar.  If this happens please call / text the number given in the Confirmation Email to locate the group and make your own way there.

Is a tapa tour suitable for people with physical disabilities / wheelchair users?

Yes, anyone can join a tour.  Advance warning is required so that we can plan a wheelchair friendly route

How do I cancel my tapa tour?

Please email us as soon as you have to cancel.  Text on the day if the cancellation is last minute.

Is tipping expected at the end of the activity?

If you have enjoyed your tapa tour experience, we´re always grateful if you´d like to tip the tapa expert.  This is entirely at your discretion.

LARGER GROUPS / AGENCIES / CORPORATE GROUPS

What is the largest number you can accommodate for a tapa tour / activity?

When dealing with bigger groups (20+) we have 2 options:
  1. divide the group into smaller, separate parties (each with a tapa guide)
  2. as a group, we visit 1 or 2 bars and have a “tapa selection” evening (e.g., 1 drink per bar / 4 tapas per person / per bar)
The reason we do this is because many of the tapas bars are small and although we want you to have an authentic tapa experience we also want you to tailor things to your needs.

How does the Photographic Treasure Hunt work?

A group is divided into 4 groups (colour coded if necessary) and handed out a map / clue booklet per team.  The idea is to take as many photos as possible while following a route round Granada.  The teams will see / experience the city in a fun / dynamic way and have to decipher the clues to then take the photos. The activity lasts 2 hours.

How does a company pay for an activity / tapa tour?

Depending on group size, 25% – 50% of overall is price required to book. Full payment is then required AT LEAST 2 weeks BEFORE the activity date
