We did this tour on our first night in Madrid. It was very fun! The food was excellent (you will not leave hungry), and the wine delicious. Our guide Enrique was excellent. He taught us about Vermouth, which we ended up sampling in many of the tapas bars we visited throughout Spain. Highly recommend.

Enrique provided an excellent experience as well as was very knowledgeable when it came to his selections. My personal favorite was the restaurant, El Lacon which resulted in a follow up visit after the tour was over. I highly recommend this tour during your trip to Madrid.

It was a great evening. I thoroughly enjoyed the food, however it was so much it could have been one less stop in my opinion. The best stop was the prawn restaurant I've never had shrimp that good!! Our guide does this more part time but he was enjoyable and knowledgeable.

Enrique was a fantastic guide who mixed local history with amazing food and fantastic wines and vermouth. We visited family owned places that would not stand out to non locals but offered warm welcome and terrific specialty dishes and bespoke wines.

There are so many places to eat in Madrid - so how do you find authentic ones and miss the tourist traps? Take this tour! Our knowledge guide lead us to a variety of smaller ‘local’ places we would have never discover on our own. He knew food and wine so we also learned about local wines. The tour is designed to allow the group to interact. This worked well. We met new international friends! We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and the price was fair.

All food we tasted were amazing! We had two daughters who was 12 and 13 years old, so they could not drink alcohol, but they had other beverages, so they had a good time too.
The tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. He told us a lot of history of the city and coutry.

A fabulous way to spend an evening in Madrid! Carlos guided our group of 10 into four very different venues for a glass of wine and a selection of four different tapas. I have issues with milk and soy and I was well taken care of. Being unfamiliar with Madrid I wouldn’t have chosen the places we went. But it was fun and the wine and tapas were excellent. We went to two what I consider neighborhood places, another where we stood at the bar, and ended in a very nice restaurant - all in local popular areas. A fun evening!
