We did the walking tapas tour with Javi and it was amazing! Javi was so knowledgeable about the history/culture of different foods in Malaga and it was a great way of familiarising ourselves with the city. There was also a perfect amount of food vs walking. Would recommend doing it early in your trip so that you can go back to all the places you visit/are recommended!

What an amazing way to get some wonderful food , hear interesting history and see the city while having a great time! I would highly recommend the lunch tapas tour with Javi via Spain Food Sherpas. He was the perfect guide ensuring all dietary needs were met, locations were ready to receive us and addressing additional requests. I would definitely do the tour again. Every recommendation he left us with exceed our expectations! This tour is a Must!

Last week my husband and I booked a trip with Spain Food Sherpa in Malaga. We’ve done food tours before in other countries and coming to Spain expectations were obviously high.

Along with another Norwegian couple, an English couple, two Scottish ladies and a young couple from Germany we met our Sherpa Javi and this is a five star rating.

Javi was great; we learned a lot about Malaga and the Spanish culture that we didnt know from before. We had four stops a long the way: ofc the Mercado Atarazanas, a more of a bistropub, a chiq restaurant and a traditional tapas place. We had some lovely tapas.. the fries green peppers, anchovies, artichockes, Spanish soup and croquettes, Spanish omelette and fried aspargus, some delicious salted nuts and olives, jamon ham and cheese.. and drinks also! Wine for those to like others could choose between soft drinks and water, all included.

I read that some customers didnt feel they goot enough food and that the prize is to high. That is not my impression, we was full in the end of the tour. The price is quite right as you get excellent and authentic food!

We endes the tour with tips from Javi and a brochure of where to go.. excellent Food Sherpa Tips. This is very clever as you avoid the «tourist traps». Javi speaks perfect English and is an outgoing, lovely host.

Today my husband and I actually went back to the Atarazanas for some lovely green, salted peppers for snack and to one of the other restaurant we visited to try their paella.

Thank so much to Javi and the Spain Food Sherpa for an unforgettable day in Malaga!

An extremely enjoyable walking and tapas tour. Felipe our tour guide was excellent - engaging and very informative. We visited four different tapas venues in the city centre enjoying a range of food and drink. Each place offered something different. As well as learning a lot about local food and drink culture we enjoyed the company of the other people on the tour. Highly recommended.

Excellent food tour. Felipe was knowledgeable, pleasant, informative and spoke excellent English. Recommend highly. We will most certainly take a Sherpa tours in the future. Also they were very accommodating in allowing us to switch from the seaside tour to the city tour when it looked like there would be rain. Again, doing the tour with Felipe as the guide exceeded expectations.

Our Tour Guide Felipe was extraordinary: friendly, knowledgeable and gave us in addition history and great tips for dinning!
We started in the market with a table only for us with variety of food and a vermouth, touring the market was amazing including sampling.
Then we went to other three places and while touring, Felipe was eager to answer questions and more history and food tips. While speaking of food included history and food preparation.
The other places it was a ham and cheese degustation in an amazing typical place,
Next, a fancy restaurant (EME) with amazing two more tapas of soup and ham croquette! If you are not full yet after all good sampling we ended in a old building restaurant with two more tapas (one a beef pincho).
In general an amazing tapas sampling tour that feel like a full meal and beverage. I highly recommend this tour! Please ensure you do not eat before :)

Javi was a fabulous guide and very knowledgeable, we had visited Malaga on many occasions previously but we had friends with us and it was their first time, still we learned so much about Malagas food history and tried many things that we had never tried before. We did the tapas tour on our first day in Malaga which set us up really nicely for our next 10 days travels. Javi was very helpful in where to eat locally and even recommended restaurants and places to visit in the mountains on our travels. Highly recommend as a great way to visit places and try things that you would not usually try. We will be booking again just for a few more recommendations

We really enjoyed the tour hosted by Javi. He was a great guide, and I can highly recommend the tour as an introduction to the sights and tastes of Malaga. The fact that the group got on so well that we spent the rest of the day together and watched the onset of darkness (we missed the sunset due to a surly doorman…) with a rooftop cocktail is testament to the experience of doing something with like minded individuals.

We enjoyed the round tour very much and our guide Javi had good knowledged in the history, area and the tapas food. He was also good at English and was both easy and interesting to listen to.
We will recommend both him and the ”the Spain food sherpas” to all our friends and will try to come again.

Have a Great day!

My husband and I booked a walking tapas tour of Malaga. The booking was very easy to make and the communication with both the company then the actual guide Philipe, was excellent!
We met Philipe and the rest of the Sam all tour group promptly at 11 am. Easy place to find, then after very friendly introductions, we set off for the tour.
Philipe the guide was very friendly and approachable and was very thoughtful to all our needs throughout the tour. One lady was pregnant and one had dietary requirements. Philipe was very aware of their needs all the at through the tour. His knowledge was excellent and his level of English was very clear to understand. He answered many questions about both the places we toured and the general area. He lives locally so knows his stuff 👍👍
The quality of the food ranged from street market tapas in the historical food market to more high end local restaurants. We stopped at some excellent venues and definitely had our value for money. We also had good quality wine and soft drinks or beer available too.
The pace of the tour was not rushed and we feel we had a good all round experience.
The tour lasted just over 3 hours but we enjoyed the company of both Philipe the guide and the other people on the tour so felt like a good day out.
Philipe contacted us the day before and shared with us many of the places to eat in Malaga via a food guide which will be helpful next time we visit.
We were shown places to eat in the old town and near the cathedral too.
We would highly recommend this if you are in Malaga for the day or for a short break.
Excellent value for money!!!!!!
