What You Can Expect
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.
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.
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.
A warm and bustling tavern welcomes you with their open kitchen were you can see how the dishes are prepared
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.

Excellent tapas and guide explanations.
If you do one tour in Madrid, do this one. We had a great time, a great guide and a wonderful evening. Who knew there were so many different types of Tapas and that every restaurant we visited would be so unique--not different variations of the same thing, but totally different types of foods. Some of the Tapas places can be crowded and standing room only, so keep this in mind. Others you will have a chance to sit down and be more relaxed. We would never have found these on our own and might have left Madrid with the tourist experience of trying Tapas in the tourist areas. Many of the ones we visited on this tour were off the beaten path. Kinds of places the locals eat at. A great evening. Would recommend highly.
