I'm typically not a fan of organized tours, but there was something very appealing about doing this on our first, jet-lagged night in town. First and foremost, we didn't have to think! Second, as a walking tour, it was a great orientation to the city. Our guide Andrew, originally from Scotland, with a stint in Vancouver, moved to Spain about six years ago after falling in love with it. He was great. We went to 5 (6? who can remember) spots, some in a fairly seedy area we likely wouldn't have gone to. I love that. There were only seven of us, which was also nice: a couple from NY, and 3 German guys, all youngin's (20-somethings) but we kept up, of course. It was supposed to run from 6;30-11:00, but Andrew kept us out until close to 1:00!
Fresh, wonderful anchovies with olives.
I was so happy to see veggies. They always seem to be sorely lacking in Europe
