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!!!
Super Tour. Enrique, Best Guide. Super Time, Enjoyed this company. Very knowledgeable. Would highly recommend this tour.
Best Tapas Tour we have been on. Enrique was the best guide, very knowledgeable and Super Company. We really enjoyed our time with him and would highly recommend this tour to anyone. Art and Isabella Morrell
This was the best way to start our trip to Spain! The guide was awesome, he knew just where to go for the best experience. Food was amazing and wine was even better! Five stars all the way!!
This tour was really nice! The different types of Tapas we had were delicious and the tour guide, who was very nice and knowledgable about wines and tapas, was pretty amazing in taking us to local tapas places that we wouldn't have been able to go to on our own.
Best way to get acclimated to the city. Personal touch was great and you really learned a lot on the tour.
I am so so glad that I signed up for this tour! I wasn't really sure what to expect at first but my expectations were blown away and it ended up being one of my favorite activities throughout my trip to Spain. Our tour guide was extremely friendly, personable and knowledgable, and I was impressed by his ability to pick and choose a variety of wines and tapas from different places, based on our initial preferences and reactions to what he chose for us. We ended up going to 5 different tapas bars, each one different from the next but all with amazing food! Our tour guide gave us a lot of background information behind the origins of the wine and what exactly the food was, which was very interesting. If anything, I wish I had gone on this tour earlier in the trip so I could've gone to more authentic tapas bars rather than the more tourist-y places that you're more likely to try just from wandering around on your own. Overall I would highly recommend going on this wine and tapas tour- you won't regret it!
Great tour guides! Super knowledgeable about the wine and food. Ordered tons of great stuff we wouldn't have ordered on our own. Got in an extra stop and improvised a bit based on our interests. Great way to see the city.
this was better than i was expecting our guide was lovely very knowlegable and took us to some fab bars the vino tinto was exceptional, he asked us what we liked then chose a few, with great results,, there was more than enough food and i tried all sorts of new foods most i liked some i didn't so a perfect mix, would definately do it again, met some lovely people
My husband and I did this tour first, and then our young adult sons did it a week later. We all agreed that we totally enjoyed it! Ishmael was the leader for both groups, and he was just great. Very knowledgeable about local history and culture and attentive to the needs of participants.Both groups were made up of less than 15 people, representing a wide age-range and a variety of countries. We visited four unique tapas bars and had plenty of food and drink in the process. Well paced and lots of fun. Highly recommend!!
Highly recommend this tour! The guide was great Ishmael, the food was very good. Will do it again next time we are in Madrid.
It was one delicious tour! I also liked that Ismael told us about local wines and history of some of the places we went for tapas.... of course there are some interesting culinary tapas that i thoroughly enjoyed.....with a nice glass of wine of course.

This was the best Tapas tour we did in Spain. Ishmael was a great guide, and very friendly and knowledgeable. In each restaurants, Ishmael was ordering the best Tapas for that place, and there were plenty food for every one. Would highly recommend this tour the best tour we had.
The tour met right on time. There were 12 others besides my husband and myself. The tour guide and his trainee were very knowledgeable and friendly. We went to a series of tapas places where the food and wine were perfectly paired. We even had dessert! Delicious and wonderful!
We had a fabulous time!! More than enough to eat and drink and wonderful fun. Ishmael was a great guide with good information but not at all stuffy. We loved trying the best item at every restaurant . Would highly recommend this tour!!!
This tour was awesome! I loved how we went to local spots and tried so many different types of food. I had the best shrimp I have ever had in my life on this tour and learned so much about the history of the tapas bars and Spain. I had a great time and I would highly recommend this tour!
Perfect way to get introduced to good tapas. Great wine and interesting local beverages. Fantastic, unique locations. We actually had two guides as one was in training. The trainee was a nice enough guy, but didn't really do much on the tour. The main tour guide was great! As long as the trainee learns everything he knows you'll have a great time.
A good way to get introduced to Madrid and Spanish cuisine. A must do especially if you are in to ham and wine.
Absolutely fantastic and well worth doing. The guide, Ismail, was charming, personable, and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this tour, and I plan to book it again next time I am in Madrid.
We had a great time on the Madrid Tapas Tour. Our tour guide, Ismeal was great, taking us to local spots with history, great food and delicious drinks. Each stop had unique food and we were walked through the importance of each tapa and history behind these local dishes. Ismeal even provided us details about Madrid as we walked from place to place. This was one of the best parts of our trip and we would do it again. If you love to eat, drink and experience the local culture, this tour is for you!
