Overview

Explore Madrid's culture through its tapas and wine on this guided tour, limited to a small group of 12 people for an intimate atmosphere. Exploring alongside a guide allows you to discover Spanish specialties you may never have heard of, such as chickpea stew, salted cod, and obscure local ingredients. Unlike some other tapas tours, all food samples and wine are included. Choose from a lunch or dinner departure time for added flexibility. 

What to Expect

Make your way to Santa Ana Square, where you'll meet your gastronome guide and small group of fellow food lovers. Limited to just 12 people, this small-group size ensures personalized attention and an intimate atmosphere, perfect for really getting to known Madrid's nightlife and dining culture.

Set off through the streets, stopping by both well-known establishments and hole-in-the-wall places you would have never found on your own. Along the way, taste up to 10 samples of regional specialties such as roasted eggplant with honey, Iberian ham, chickpea stew, and salted cod. Sip Spanish wines while your guide gives you an overview of wine history and production in the country.

End up at a centrally located bar, parting with your guide to explore independently. Your guide is happy to provide recommendations to lead the rest of your culinary-themed exploration.

Itinerary
Bar 1:
Head inside an atmospheric Castilian sherry bar, and learn all about fortified wines, from crisp and dry finos to old olorosos. Admire the chalk boards scrawled with daily tapas specials and soak up the atmosphere inside this delightfully old-fashioned bar.

Bar 2:
Visit a wine bar that doubles up as a store – tucked away behind liquor bottles! If you like what you eat or drink here, then purchase it from the shop to take home.

Bar 3:
A warm and bustling tavern welcomes you with their open kitchen were you can see how the dishes are prepared

Bar 4:
Round off your evening in style at a dark and bohemian Madrid tavern, which is still in business after 100 years, you will enjoying a full-bodied glass of wine.

On the tour we did there were vegetarians and vegans who were well catered for. I am sure if you let them know in advance when you book the tour can arrange with the restaurants chosen to have a fish option.

It’s very easy to find the tour guide. The company tells you the name of the monument to stand by (there aren’t too many) and when you go there the guide is looking for you more than you’re looking for him! Don’t let this... More
