Pedro, our guide, was outstanding! The depth of his knowledge and the added insight of the history of the Village of Madrid made the evening even better. Based on what we learned about the food,culture and places to eat changed our remaining days in Madrid for the better. I would highly recommend the tour early in your stay.
This trip was amazing the tour guide was fantastic and so friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommended
Absolutely wonderful. All the food and wine was wonderful, and our guide was extremely knowledgeable about Madrid food.. what we habn't expected was his knowledge and discussion of Madrid and Spanish history.i would recommend this tour...it was delicious and memorable.
The best way to start off our trip!! Our tour guide was amazing and he helped us find spots to shop to fill our pantry in our apartment that we rented. Really enjoyed all of the different tapas we tried, too. The history lessons of Madrid kept us captivated the entire time. I would highly recommend this tour!!
Pedro was a excellent guide.Tapas and drinks were very authentic. The bars we visited were traditional and lively. We even went back to one for a evening meal of Pealla. Very good value for money and a great way to start our stay in Madrid.
We took the Tapas and Walking tour with Pedro de Blas our first night in Spain, and the four of us agree that it was a perfect start to our visit and one of the highlights of our 12-day tour. We were pretty tired when we met Pedro for our tour, but we were shortly rejuvenated, as he began with a lively and informative walking tour of the city and we arrived at our first of four stops for tapas and wine. Each stop on the tour highlighted a delicious specialty - cocido madrileño, a traditional chickpea-based stew from Madrid hams and cheeses seafood and just when we didn't think we could eat another bite, hot chocolate and churros. Pedro was most accommodating to the vegetarian in our group. He told us in the beginning that his goal for the tour was to provide us with a piece of Spanish history and high quality tapas. He unquestionably succeeded.
Our tour guide was great, very informative and obviously loved his home village of Madrid. We ate lots of wonderful yummy food and wine.
This was a fabulous tour by a genuine Madrid / Spanish guy - Pedro. He was excellent. We noted other tours with English tour guides!! Why?? He had a fabulous knowledge of the local food and wine, along with history. The tour was perfect with discussions of past history and current political situation, all mixed in with wine and food information. He has amazing knowledge of Iberian ham! Can tell you anything you want to know. Highly recommended.
Pedro was the best! He met us on time at the designated meeting point we were fortunate that there were only four of us on this tour - he was able to provide a personalized and comprehensive tour. Pedro shared his knowledge and love of Madrid both by providing historical and cultural information as well as sharing his love of his country's cuisine. The tapas, Iberico jamon, sangria, wine and churros/chocolate tastings were wonderful! I heartedly recommend Pedro and this tour, muchas gracias, Pedro!!
Pedro, our guide, was an old hand with this tour. We did the lunch time tour and visited three places to eat and drink. The tapas were the best we had in Spain and there was plenty of sangria and wine to accompany the tastings. Pedro had plenty of information about the 'village' of old Madrid. A highly recommended tour.
Hats off to Pedro our guide who did a great job. Pedro is one proud Spaniard who really loves his culture and is very proud of it. He is quite versed on all aspects to history, politics, monuments, tapas, vino, and takes great pride in sharing with us tourist.
Exellente Pedro - hope to see you again. . . .
Pedro was an excellent guide. He was prompt,polite ,patient ,good humoured and informative.
He took us on a Tapas trail that locals go to , rather than tourists , with an historical element re Madrid
The quality of food and wine was excellent and the Churros and chocolate were Devine.
On the rest of our tour of Spain the Tapas paled in comparison
Thanks Pedro for an excellent introduction to our journey through Spain
Best thing in Madrid!!! Our guide Pedro wa so knowledgeable and so nice. We could have stayed in the Mercado with him all day.
Pedro made our trip to Madrid a memorable and personal experience. Absolutely the best tapas and wine tour in the city. He was excited to share the history of the food, wine, and landmarks of the Village of Madrid. This tour is a must do on anyone's list when visiting this capital city.
Pedro was an excellent guide and it was amost enjoyable experience
Pedro was great and tour was super. Plenty of food, The surprise churros at the end were greAt. Pedro mixed history and food well. Thanks for a fun evening
The walking food tour with Pedro was awesome! Pedro seemed to enjoy this experience as much as we did so that made it all the more enjoyable. He was engaging, informative, and very passionate about Spain as he shared his knowledge of the rich history, the local lay of Madrid, and the cuisine that makes it special. The food selections were off the tourist-beaten Pathans we felt like he was extremely conscientious about ensuring the tour was a unique cultural experience. We absolutely appreciated that and as a result this was the highlight for our time spent in Madrid! We highly recommend you choose Pedro if you plan do take a food tour while visiting Madrid!
This tour was AMAZING! We can not recommend it enough, our tour guide was Pedro, and he was was just so honest and knowledgable about not only tapas and wine but the history and culture of Madrid! He reccomends so many flavor combinations and brought us to little hidden gems throughout Central Madrid. Pedro is top ten, but personally I think no other tour guide can compare! If you are contemplating taking this tour, DO IT! We want to do it again that is how much fun we had. Make sure you get Pedro!!
Pedro was a fantasic guide - giving us history of not only some of the landmarks, but of the food as well. He was animated, charming and I was sorely disappointed when it ended all too soon. Worth every penny.
Linda A United States of ...
This tour was absolutely amazing. The history of Madrid, the different Tapas and Wines and our guide was wonderful. The other guests who were part of this tour were also friendly and informative. Our guide even gave us a great suggestion for dinner for a large group for the following evening. A must to do while visiting Madrid.
Pedro was great, history interspersed with great eating experience. 4 great food stops. alot of fun.
My college friend and I and our teenage daughters did this tour. It was a fantastic blend of the history of Madrid with fantastic tapas and drinks. Our group was fantastic and we really bonded. Pedro said our group was large at 10 but we thought it perfect. Pedro obviously loves Madrid, food, and wine and he did a wonderful job. Each stop was so unique.
Pedro is fabulous. We chose the afternoon tour option and were surprised to find we were the only participants, so we had a private tour. Pedro is passionate about tapas and the history of Spain and it shows. We started at the statue of Isabelle II and had a 7 minute history lesson covering 400 years! Then on to our first stop for tapas, which was a brunch tasting plate he had designed especially for the tour. He explained what each dish was before we tasted it. The tasting plate even included a glass of wine. Our next stop was a ham store. There we tasted 3 different types of olive oils and more than 3 types of Iberian ham. Included in the tasting was a bottle of wine. Our third stop was at a store that sold premium seafood in cans. It was fantastic. We had tuna cheeks, mussels, clams, and anchovies. And you guessed it, another bottle of wine. Our last tasting was at a cafe for freshly made churros and chocolate. Unbelievable. In between the tastings, we would stop at statues in parks and squares for a little bit of history. Tapas and History a fantastic tour!
Great Trip. Pedro was amazing, with good historical knowledge and good local cultural knowledge and a great tour with some outstanding food and wine. Definelty recommend!!
