Get the most out of Madrid on one of our fascinating historic walking tours, tapas tours, or wine tastings. All tours and tastings are lead by a guide whose passion for Madrid's cuisine, its history, and the issues shaping modern Spain, has been turned into an engaging and fun set of experiences. Group Historic Walking Tours are just 15€. Wine tastings led by a certified sommelier start at 65€, and tapas tours start at 75€. Private tours also available, contact for details. Madrid Tours & Tastings was formerly known as Madrid Audio Walks, but we've changed our name to Madrid Tours & Tastings to reflect the company's true focus on personal guided historic walking tours, food tours and wine tastings.
