This tour was excellent - one of the highlights of my time in Madrid! Our guide took us to 4 different places and we had food and wine at each stop. There was plenty of food - we were full by the end. And the places that we went were not the typical touristy places, but places that are known by locals to be good. I would highly recommend this tour!

Enrique is great. He really showed us tapas bars we otherwise wouldn't have gone to and highlighted the best things to eat at each place. We discovered new foods that we wound up enjoying throughout the rest of the trip. He knew a lot about Spanish wines as well.
We met some great people on our tour and Enrique helped us all find a place to continue our evening after the tour ended.
Definitely a highlight of our trip to Spain.
