Excellent! Great tapas and bars. Very little walking between bars.
Great tour and Guide.
The tapas and wine was vewry good and lots of it.
Ishmael was an excellent leader and we really enjoyed the small number in the party which ga ve us chance to meet people from other countries. From that we are in contact by e mail with an American couple who have invited us to stay if we are ever in the vicinity.
A definite must do in Madrid. It's fun, relaxing and you get a chance to meet interesting people as well. Our tour guide Ismael was absolutely great and shared good knowledge about the historic city of Madrid.
A fabulous way to begin our introduction to Madrid. It was the right size walking group, great guide whose knowledge of wines added to the experience, and overall a fun experience....would do it again! Connected with others in our group who we went to dinner with the following evening. Donna H
Ismael was a wonderful guide. His knowledge of the city and its food was extensive. It was a great experience.
Our guide, Ishmael, took us to 4 tapas bars, where the small servings of many types of foods were all fantastic. Ishmael has a wonderful sense of culture and history, combined with sense of humor. We had a great time, met lots of nice people. All that, plus great wines. We would highly recommend this tour.
A very comprehensive look at Madrid and it's Tapas bars, lived the tour and would recommend it to everyone
What a great night! Great wine, tapas and a great guide. Most of our group knew each other but four people from 2 different countries joined us. It was fun getting to know them. The whole evening was fun, walking from bar to bar, seeing different parts of Madrid and learning how Spainards enjoy tapas and wine. Our guide was fantastic and very knowledgeable. Would do it again!
Our tour guide Enrique has a rich knowledge of the city as well as the hidden gems amongst the many tapas outlets. He even led us to the tapa outlet that first offered gambas al ajillo! I highly recommend this tour and of course Enrique
Jaime was extremely knowledgeable, very friendly. Was a great tour to get some of the story of the wine's regions
We had such a fun time on this tour! We booked the Tapas tour for our first night in Madrid and it was a great introduction to Spanish Tapas and how everything works. We tasted some amazing food and our host, Enrique was wonderful! He really did a fantastic job. We would definitely recommend this tour. Was a great experience and we felt worth the price.
Alejandro was an excellent guide and took us to some great bars to sample many types of wines and beers!
This was a lot of fun. We had a great group of people and Enriquez, our guide was excellent. There was a great selection of food to try, terrific wines and superb company! All in all it was an outstanding evening.
Great guide who took us to local places and spoiled us with good wine, or specialty beer if you asked for it. A great introduction to Madrid and very minimal walking involved.
Was an amazing experience. Ismael, our guide was great!! He brought us to 5 different Tapas bars. Each one better than the next. He was full of fun information and was able to modify foods for my wife who has some food intolerances. Everyone enjoyed. Only 5 people in our group which made it very comfortable and easy to talk. I recommend this to everone!
I booked the Madrid Tapas and Wine-Tasting Tour through Viator, which turned out to be provided by a local tour company. I was traveling alone, and this was one of my favorite activities in Madrid. There were only six people in our group, including our excellent guide Enrique. We met at 7:30 at Plaza Santa Ana and visited four spots, ending up in Plaza Mayor. Enrique tailored the evening to what the group wanted in terms of wine, food, and history. We enjoyed about ten different tapas plus the free tapas some places provided with our drinks, such as Iberian ham, sautéed baby shrimp in garlic, a spinach/egg dish, fried cuttlefish, eggplant with tomato and honey sauces, battered fried shrimp, beef roulade, chocolate truffles, and more. The dishes were paired with wonderful wines chosen by Enrique, and he does know wines! We all had plenty to eat, and by the end of the evening I felt like I had made new friends. Among our group was a 10-year-old girl, who was delightful to have along. Enrique knew how to include her in conversation, dishes, and drinks in a way that pleased everyone. I would highly recommend the tour company to anyone families, couples, or solo travelers looking for a fun and memorable experience in Madrid!
We had such a great time! Our guide was knowledgeable about the city and the food and wines of Spain. Some of the tapas places were better than others- my favorite was La Casa del Abuelo. If I had more time in town, I would have gone there every day for the garlic shrimp! Definitely worth the tour.
By far the best food tour I've done in Europe. Drinks, food and information flowed freely. Taken by a local tour guide he took us to all his favourite food and drink places, some you would never visit as a tourist. We were well satisfied with plethora of food and drink provided. Highly recommended.
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.
Outstanding! Our tour guide Ismael was 5 stars - we thoroughly enjoyed it!!!
