Daniel was the best, great knowledge of the history and culture of the city and the very best food. The Paella dinner was fabulous.

I did this on my first night in Madrid, and it was the perfect introduction to the city. Daniel is a great guide- passionate about the city and culture, and the food. There was quite a bit of walking during the tour, but it was always done at a leisurely pace so it never felt overwhelming, and there was always drinks and more food waiting for us at the next spot. The places we stopped at were amazing- small spots filled with locals, all specializing in something different. I had a great time, and highly recommend doing this tour!

This tour exceeded my expectations. Rafa was a terrific guide! He was extremely knowledgeable about the history of Madrid and Spain, showed us many sites along the way as we enjoyed tapas and drinks. The 4 course meal was delicious and filling (and was the best paella I had during my 12 days in Spain). IAccommodations were made for my vegetarian meal preference. I also met wonderful people on this tour from around the globe which was nice as I was traveling solo. I highly recommend this tour!

We spent enjoyable hours learning about Madrid with humorous tales of kings and explorers. With delicious tapas and a wonderful dinner. Great local beer, wine, and sangria added a spot on evening of enjoyment. The small group allowed us to get acquainted with our tour partners. Excellent!! Tour guide very interesting and local so grew up in the city with local stories.

Danny met us promptly and led us off on a tour of Madrid that was based around its history, told wonderful stories from history and his life all linked to locations and food. The tapas were great, and we went back to some of them later on. He also recommended a number of places we did not have time to visit that evening, but which we went to alone, which meant we ate the best suckling pig ever! The evening was entertaining and enlightening and sprinkled with great food, ending with a full dinner with sangria and after dinner shots of Spanish liqueurs. Really a great night.

If you like a lot of walking and history with a few tapas to keep you going before sitting down to a lovely dinner then this is the tour for you! Our guide Rafa was passionate about history, professional and accommodating.
