we recently toured spain in the 'ultimate foodie tour of spain' with A TASTE OF SPAIN. this was a small group tour (ours turned out to be 9 participants) that encompassed madrid, san sebastien, and barcelona with stops in bilbao and sitges as well. from the title you can surmise the emphasis was on the food, but we did also enjoy tours of each city taking in the architecture and history of each city as well as the guggenheim in bilbao.but this was not the type of tour where you stop at every church and look in every corner for 2 or 3 hours. this was a real foodie tour. as for the food, we had 2 cooking demonstrations with local chefs in which we could participate to our own comfort level, preceeded by visits to the market to select the food. lunches and dinners were feasts of the region with local wine flowing. speaking of wine, 2 winery tours were included with wine tasting and lunch at a rioja winery and a cava producer. ample free time for exploring on your own as well as a few free nights to seek out a restaurant for that special night were also left free. in all, a wonderful experience!!
