Great tour!
Susan_B, Jul 2022
We love food tastings to get the feel for a town. This one did not disappoint! Fun group , great guide, yummy food and drink!!
Excellent food and easy walk
Patricia_S, Jul 2022
Daniel had the perfect background for being our tour guide. He had an American father and grew up in Madrid. We enjoyed the historical walking tour with Daniel’s stories filled with faction and legends. We stopped at 2 restaurants for tapas and a third restaurant for dinner. There was plenty of delicious food and local drinks. The tour lasted over 4 hours (too long) mostly because Daniel frequently shared other stories about greyhounds, playing in a band, and his cholesterol. We would recommend this tour hoping that Daniel includes more historical stories than personal ones,
Good foodie tour

Great Intro to Spain Food & History
Patrick_E, May 2022
This Tour is excellent in many ways, but especially for first time visitors to Spain and Madrid. Pablo’s English skills are great, and his personality brings the rich elements of Madrid to life. The food sampling touches on classic Spanish tapas, dishes and drinks. Strongly recommend as an option for a first trip to Spain or Madrid.
Perfect Food and History Tour

Relaxing tour
Irina_T, May 2022
It was very relaxing. The tasting experience was excellent and enjoyable. The restaurant in the end of the tour was full not only with tourists but with Spanish people as well ( a good sign! ) . Plenty to eat and to drink, but if it’s not enough you could order and pay yourself( we did not) The guide was very friendly, the only munis for us was that it was not enough historical information. The tour was disjointed from that respect with some “drops” of history of Madrid. We’d just flew in Madrid that night and we were looking forward to learn more.
Response from Host, May 2022
Hello Irina, sorry to hear the history part wasn't sufficient, who was your guide? Thank you for your time and for the review.
Easy walk, good talk, yummy food

Pablo was an excellent guide - not only did we have an enjoyable evening visiting places that we wouldn’t otherwise have been confident to go into but he gave us valuable tips and snippets of useful information that greatly enhanced the rest of our time in Madrid
Fantastic Experience
Keith_B, Apr 2022
Great tour and guide. Well worth the time and expense. Great local history to give you an appreciation of Madrid and the local culture.
A must do tour with scrumptious food
Claudia_P, Apr 2022
The tour was amazing and our guide was exceptional, very knowledgeable, and fun. The tapas and dinner were spectacular. Be forewarned: do not eat anything at least 4 hours prior to the tour or you will not be able to enjoy everything this tour has to offer (our guide did warn us to watch the bread, but we didn’t listen)!
Fun experience!
Laura_M, Mar 2022
We had a great time with Pablo on our tour. It was fun to meet other travelers too and we were traveling as a family so it was a great way to learn more about the history of spain, walk the streets in the area we were staying and taste some delicious local food and drinks. Highly recommend! And thanks for the flexibility when we had flight delay issues! Much appreciated!
