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.

Must do if you're in Madrid, Ishmael brought us to awesome places that he himself visit.
He was very informative and friendly. Met new friends along the way as well.
Look no further for a tapas and wine tour around Madrid. Enrique was a true professional - knowledgeable about the area, local history, wine regions, and an all around personable guy. Visited 4 fantastic tapas bars normally reserved for locals and was introduced to a wide variety of tapas and wines to kick off our Madrid trip. Highly recommended!
Had the best time. The tour guide was amazing and so was the food/drink
This was a real surprise and a great, great tour. Thinking that we had been in Spain already for a week we weren't expecting anything wonderful from this tour and we decided to leave if it was boring. We met our group in front of the theater and we were a pleasant group of 11 with a very fun and knowledgeable guide named Ishmael. Many of us had the same thought of bailing if it wasn't very good, but after just a few minutes, none of us were going anywhere that Ishmael wasn't going. We started at the first bar that served us delicious wine not just a tasting but a good pour, shrimp in garlic oil, large fried shrimp, bread for sopping up the garlic oil and other things. I was expecting only one tapas per bar, but this was not the case. At each bar we were served many tapas, all delicious, with something for everyone. Refills on the wine were a pleasant surprise. Our guide was enthusiastic and gave us some great background history on these bars. One good surprise was El Toro del Oro , the famous bar of the matadors. Stuffed bull heads and great photos of famous matadors covered the walls. This bar is a must for visitors to Madrid and we were graciously served plenty of tapas and wine here. By this time we were all happy campers and a close group, chatting and laughing and we were able to sit at a large table together to sample the last of our wine and served three separate desserts. I couldn't recommend this more.
Excellent tour, highly recommend. Our tour guide was great and we were pleasantly surprised at the amount of food we received. G
Good choice of Tapas bars, excellent tour guide and good company. All-in-all, great value for money.
An excellent evening with interesting food and wine plus the advantage of seeing and experience an aspect and area of Madrid we would not experienced on our own.
The tour was great, Ishmael was an excellent tour guide. We learnt some of the history of the areas and bars we visited and tried a number of different drinks with local tapas dishes. Tried Vermouth, sweet red wine, white wine, a full bodied rioja.
Really enjoyed the experience and met some interesting people on the tour as well.
I highly recommend this tour. Enrique was an amazing tour guide and very knowledgeable about wine and the tapas. We toured four local bars/restaurants and each one was unique experience. The food and wine were delicious.
Superb. Generous in quality and quantity of food and wine, great guide Ishmael. One of the best experiences on my trip from a non- tour girl
