What You Can Expect

Madrid Tapas and Wine-Tasting Tour

Enjoy tapas on a night out in Madrid!

Meet your guide in Santa Ana Square, and set off on a tapas crawl of the city, exploring the best bars that only locals really know of. As you stroll, your guide will chat to you about Madrid, the local cuisine and, of course, the tapas bars that no great evening in Madrid should be without!

Like all Spanish cities, Madrid has its own regional cuisine with an emphasis on use of local ingredients. Perhaps more so than others, Madrid has been influenced by its immigrant population, who’ve brought in flavors and ideas as cosmopolitan as the city itself.

Visit up to four bars on your tour of the town, enjoying wine tastings in each. Sample beautiful Spanish wines made from well-known grapes like tempranillo, malvar, garnacha, and parellada, and enjoy a complimentary tapa (tapas dish) to complement the wine's flavors. Beer and soft drinks (one per bar) are also included should you prefer this to wine! While the dishes vary on each occasion, you can be sure it’s a taste bud tingling treat! Examples of dishes include eggplant with honey, cod brandade, Spanish omelet, Iberian ham and chickpea stew. See the example itinerary for details on the different bars you may visit.

Your tapas tour finishes in a centrally located bar so that you’re well-placed to continue your night out independently.

Example 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.

Please note that the above itinerary is an example only and may be subject to change.

We went to several Tapas tours in other cities in Spain - THIS is the ONLY authentic one. Madrid is where Tapas started, and before we did the tour (on our last day) we were paying for Tapas. Our guide showed us the 'real tapas' culture - if only we knew before we left. A must book if you are in Madrid.

The Tapas and Wine Tasting tour was excellent. Our guide Ismael was extremely informative and knew what he was talking about with regard to Spanish wine. The Tapas bars/restaurants he took us to provided us with very tasty food, much more preferable than the many restaurants dotting the streets of Madrid. The staff were all courteous and friendly wherever we were taken. Not only did Ismael inform us about the food we were eating and it's origins but he supplied us with history of the restaurants and the places in Madrid that we walked through. There were four restaurants listed on the tour but we were taken to a fifth after being asked if we would like to go, a bonus.
I would recommend this tour to anybody who wants to explore Madrid and get to know the local cuisine and wines, but do it early on in your stay so that you can choose good eating places during your stay
