Charles was our guide. He took us to 4 awesome Tapas places in Madrid. He is very knowledgeable and made the tour very entertaining. He also recommended other food places which were excellent choices. Highly recommend this tour.

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
