Though a little expensive, this was interesting, informative and nice because only a few people on the tour. But would have liked more tapas tasting and a better dinner.

If you're into food and the history of the city, this is an awesome tour that i'd recommend that you do early on in your trip. Feel free to ask for recommendations after the trip too. We were given great pointers.

I believe the tour guide can accommodate a large group of 14. The dinner is at the end of the tour so to cut it short means you will miss the dinner. Since you have a large group, perhaps you can contact the tour guide... More

yes wine and/or beers. Sangria at the meal at the end. We stood for the croquettes but not long, sitting everywhere else. Also we went in the holidays so it was quite busy. Book it, you won't regret it.
