Devour Tours joins City Experiences’ portfolio of travel offerings


Under the global experiences provider Walks, Devour Tours will further extend the company’s culinary reach by providing one-of-a-kind food and wine tours in top tourism destinations around the world.

NEW YORK, NY – City Experiences announced the European culinary tour provider Devour Tours will join the organization’s growing portfolio of land-based experience offerings. Devour Tours spans five different countries and eight different cities including Madrid, Barcelona, Seville and San Sebastian, Spain; Paris, France; Rome, Italy; Lisbon, Portugal; and London, England. As part of the global experience provider Walks, Devour Tours will also further extend its portfolio of culinary offerings as it introduces guests to authentic local food and vibrant culture through a variety of specially curated and exclusive excursions from the people and communities that know them best.

As we continue to grow our experiences platform, we are excited to welcome Devour Tours to the City Experiences family as a part of Walks, adding to our diverse portfolio of land-based offerings while continuing to build on our core mission of delivering amazing experiences for our guests,” said Kristina Heney, City Experiences Chief Marketing and Revenue Officer. “With their unique collection of food and tapas tours, wine experiences and family-friendly activities, Devour Tours supports our overall business strategy and is an excellent complement to our organization’s complete vision.”

Devour Tours employs a team of local experts to serve as guides in each destination, offering shared insight and personal commentary to create a unique experience for each and every tour. The company has expanded from tours of fresh markets, street vendors and restaurants to walking wine tastings in Barcelona, flamenco feasts in Seville, family walking tours and gourmet dining experiences in unique restaurants. Devour Tours connects curious travelers to a place’s unique history through its cuisine in a way that helps local culture thrive.

I’ve long admired Devour Tours and I’m thrilled to welcome them to the team,” said Stephen Oddo, President & Founder of Walks.  “Devour shares our mission to only deliver the highest-quality guides and itineraries. I’ve taken my own family on their tours, and they are as mouth-watering as they sound.”

Co-founded in 2012 by Lauren Aloise, James Blick and Alejandro Cabrera during the height of the economic recession as a way to support struggling local eateries, the first Devour Tour was a deep dive into Spain’s vibrant food culture with an experience set in a traditional market in the center of historic Madrid. The first tours highlighted the difficulties of keeping small businesses relevant in a quickly changing economic landscape.

There is no better way to experience a city than through its cuisine. Food brings people together with experiences that offer a snapshot of local culture, which is at the heart of what Devour Tours provides for our guests,” said Lauren Aloise, Co-Founder of Devour Tours. “In our ever-changing travel landscape, joining Walks and City Experiences gives us the opportunity to expand our reach into new and delicious destinations. We want to help local culture thrive, no matter where we are.”

Walks is a global leader in tours and activities, operating sightseeing tours, food tours, and day trips in 15 cities around the world including Rome, Paris, Barcelona, London, New York City and San Francisco. Earlier this year, Walks also joined City Experiences’ growing portfolio of land-based experience companies. 

City Experiences represents a diverse portfolio of water- and land-based experiences in major travel destinations worldwide, offering locals and tourists alike a broad range of global experiences.
