      Loved it!
      What a day! Our tour started with meeting Michel, our fabulous tour guide, in the Plaza de los Naranjos in old town. Not only is he a food connisseur but he is also an amateur (I think amateur?) historian. He started with a brief history of Spain, with a focus on Marbella. Very interesting! From the old town we headed to the Market - for our tastings. Michel was so incredibly passionate about the local and traditional foods that I tried things that I would never have tried on an ordinary day on our own. The market was beautiful - filled with food, colour, people, smells and sounds. Every tasting we had was paired with a local wine. A beautiful day all around.

      Amazing time, great guide!
      Michele was a great tour guide and we had an extremely great time touring Marbella and the food market. Each of the locations he took us to had amazing food, and we purchased a variety of products we plan to eat while staying in Marbella. Thanks Michele!!!

      Foodie market tour
      After several visits to Marbella, my friends and I decided to get off our sun beds and do something more interesting. Taste of Marbella market your seemed to fit the bill. Linda was our guide and she was brilliant, giving us a brief history of Marbella before taking us to its market. We were intro to several stall holders and sampled beautiful ham, cheese fish and sausage, all accompanied by appropriate wines. What a fantastic way to spend 3 hours! Linda 10 out of 10 Marbella market 10 out of 10 Same again next year!

      Lovely Tour, Lovely Food
      A great experience for lunch on this tour! Gina (our guide) was both knowledgeable and great fun! The experience was super for myself and my Mum (who couldn't walk far). An advantage of this tour is that whether you are on wheels or foot, this tour is accessible and just as much fun. Food and paired drinks were wonderful combinations. The great thing about this experience is it can be enjoyed in hot weather or rain (the latter is a very rare experience in Marbella I appreciate) given it's under cover and air conditioned. Definitely come to this tour hungry...

      Single Traveler?—Don’t Bother!
      I tried to book for one adult on 3 different days. Got “no availability for one adult.” I understand their monetary reasons, but I still think it’s sh***y and discriminatory of single travers.

      A Must Book!
      We are so happy we booked the Food & Market Tour as it became one of our favorite memories from our trip. Our tour guide, Natalia was fantastic! As you walk through Old Town to the Market, she provides you with a bit of fascinating history about Marbella. During the market vendor visits, Natalia and the vendors make you feel pampered with excellent service and delicious food. Natalia was very knowledgeable and able to answer all our many questions and provided great conversation while we all dined. It was also great to interact with the vendors and hear their stories. We learned so much from her tour, tasted the best shrimp from Paco’s stand (El Pescadero), and tried foods we wouldn’t have ordered ourselves but absolutely loved. If you’re looking for an authentic tasting of Marbella food & wine and a glimpse into the culture, you should book this tour.

      FABULOUS Taste of Marbella Food & Market Tour
      Our guide Natalia was so knowledgeable and fun to be with. It made this tour wonderful. I loved tasting and learning about the hams. And the seafood lunch was 5 star for delicious tastes and presentation. Add to that the great wines and the entire experience made my day. Thank you Natalia. I hope we can see you again on our upcoming sherry tasting tour.

      Marbella market food tour
      Natalia was our guide and she was fantastic. She was very easy to be with, very knowledgeable. We’ve been on several tours this trip and this one was, by far, the best one and a lot of that was due to Natalia’s easy-going yet informative manner. The food was fantastic, we loved the market and the relaxed atmosphere. It was nice to just go to one place and spend a couple of hours there rather than constantly moving from place to place, it gave us a chance to have great conversations. It was fun to meet and chat with people from other countries, it was like we were just meeting old friends for tapas and drinks. I highly recommend this tour and suggest you ask for Natalia as your guide.

      Loved our market food tour!
      Natalia was an excellent tour host. We highly recommend the Marbella market tour - Natalia taught us some of the history about food in Spain, but best of all, she took us to eat a meal that was out of this world that we would never have experienced on our own. We also had our 9 year old son with us and they were able to adapt the menu to suit his tastes. A terrific experience overall!

      A great experience visiting the small market sellers. The guide took us to very local establishments which served high quality produce. A fun tour with lots of opportunity to discuss the food and wine.

    Our group had a marvellous evening thanks in the main to our excellent tour guide Natalia. Her knowledge of the history of the tapas and wines we enjoyed was exceptional and she merged that with a wonderful personality. She also took us to amazing restaurants tourists would normally be unaware of. If you are booking the Tapas Tour you must insist Natalia is your guide, having been on tours all around the world I can assure you she is the best of the lot.

    What a treat ! I organised this gastronomic tour for our group of eight, as part of a business trip, without imagining for a single moment the indelible mark the evening would leave on us.

    To say that the charming Natalia totally won us over would be an understatement! Beyond her friendly welcome, and her simple, clear and relevant lessons on the history and culture of the city (the impact of politics and religion on gastronomy and architecture being just one example), she introduced us to the local culture, allowing us to sample a variety of wines as we drank in her words.

    I thought I knew a little about Marbella, as I had visited several times, but Natalia surprised us continuously, allowing us to experience places we would never have discovered independently. Each bite of those tapas and each sip of those delicious wines was a marvel ! More than highly recommended !

    FYI, our tour was the evening Wine & Tapas Testing Tour but I believe a "lunch" formula is also on offer, introducing the local market.. I'm going to have to return... with great pleasure !

    Very nice experience. One of the favorite things we did during our vacation. Both the guide and the people we were with made the experience much better.

    Natalia was a great guide, sharing her knowledge about the region, the food/wine and answering any questions we had.

    Would definitely recommend if you enjoy learning about history while eating good food & drinking delicious wine!

    We had a great time with Natalia as our guide, she was knowledgeable and welcoming. The history, food and wine was great. All three places we visited were really interesting and it was nice and relaxed. It would have been nice to try a greater variety of wines and possibly another glass or two for the price of the tour. Would recommend 👍

    Fun experience walking around, getting to know more about the area as well as getting to know more about tapas. The company was great, the food and wines were great. Loved this as a way to taste a variety of things I likely would not have ordered on my own. Highly recommend this tour for anyone who wants to spend a few hours having fun while learning a bit and having some tasty nibbles along the way.

    Enjoyed first 2 stops for tapas but not the 3rd place. Only 2 out of the group could eat what was served. Many of us were not keen on the fish which although was typical of Andalusian cuisine I think should have been swapped for something else. The guide was made aware at the start of the tour how many of us were not keen on fish. A questionnaire at time of booking on preferred food and allergies may have helped to decide on venues for this experience. However the food in the first 2 places was superb and we all left feeling quite full.

    Guide Manuel took us to 3 local tapas restaurants in the old town. The food was delicious. He tied the evening together with information about the history of Marbella, the background of the restaurants, and the preparation and content of the foods and wines we were served. What a wonderful evening!

    Great tour. Host was amazing. Very knowledgeable. We’ve been to the Old Town loads of times but she showed us places we have never found and explained their significance. A great and different way to see a familiar place in a new light.

    We had a wonderful evening with Gina. She was very knowledgeable about Marbella and it's history. The three restaurants she took us to were lovely and very different from each other. The selection of tapas that we enjoyed were very well thought out. I loved that all the restaurant's staff knew her and were very pleasant to us.
    There were only the two of us on the tour but Gina kept the conversation going and it was a delight to get to know her.
    I highly recommend this tour in Marbella, it's a great way to see the town and learn it's rich history.
