Going for tapas in Spain is a little bit different to dining at the tapas bars you might be familiar with outside Spain. If you’d like to know how the locals do it here – with all the unwritten rules that ensue including where to go, what to order and how much and when to pay, read on for the Totally Spain Guide to Tapas in Spain!
At Totally Spain, we’ve been designing custom trips since the year 2000 & regularly advise clients on customs and traditions (and de-bunk the stereotypes too!) We’ve put together this guide to a typical day in Spain to help you better understand the Spanish way of life while travelling in Spain.
When most of us travel, we want to visit the ‘must-sees’ but we also want to hang out with locals doing non touristy things. It’s hard to strike a balance, so when we plan custom trips for Totally Spain clients (and we’ve been doing this since the year 2000), in addition to highlighting top attractions, we recommend many non touristy things to do in Spain so clients can get a sense of the Spain that we know and love.
We’ve been designing custom trips around Northern Spain ever since Totally Spain started out back in the year 2000. You might not know but we initially set up our business in Vitoria in the Basque Country, which was then an unknown part of Spain. Today, we are still based in Northern Spain in Cantabria, and although we do plan trips for all over Spain and Portugal, we love planning trips around this superb region. To make it even easier for you to see what’s so great, here’s our insider guide on What to See & Do in Northern Spain.
Here at Totally Spain, we’ve been tracking San Sebastian’s rise to the culinary hall of fame since we started our business in the Basque Country in the year 2000. It’s been exciting to observe San Sebastian as Europe’s City of Culture – when the cultural calendar finally caught up with the chefs culinary skills and made it into a world class destination for all the senses.
