Excellent food tour very funny and knowledgeable guide !
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.
What an incredible Madrid experience with Daniel and Native Spanish Tapas on 12 March! Let me start by saying that as it turned out, only my wife and me were on the tour. In retrospect, it would have been easy for Daniel or Viator to have canceled the tour. But no, they honored their reservation. This speaks highly to their professionalism and commitment to customer service! hard to find in many areas today
We met Daniel at Plaza Isabela promptly at 7pm and started our 4 hour adventure into Madrid's history and wonderful food options. Daniel provided us keen insights into the city's history. He also introduced us to many incredible restaurants and tapas bars that only the locals visit! In our travel experiences, we always look for the spots the locals eat and avoid the touristy joints. A great way to learn the lay of the land is to start with a tour such as Daniel's.
What wonderful food and conversation with the locals at each stop! From the croquettes and jamon to finally the dinner, each stop was an incredible experience. At the final stop Daniel personally introduced us to the chef and she prepared us a delicious 4-5 course paella dinner that was the best we've eaten anywhere!
We left full, historically enriched, and hating to see the evening end. My wife and I have taken many walking tours in many different cities, but Daniel was the most engaging and knowledgeable we've ever encountered.
Final advice: If you plan to spend one day or several days in Madrid, start with Daniel and one of his walking history tours. It will open the city to you and provide a basis for the rest of your wanderings. A truly wonderful experience!
Wonderful tour with a great guide. Great food and it gave us a wonderful insight as to which places to return to during the day. Interesting facts and great food. Thoroughly enjoyed the tour and Rafa our guide.
The guide was entertaining and extremely knowledgeable. He was familiar with many of the owners of the shops. It was fantastic to visit the non-tourist spots. His knowledge of history of the area was phenomenal. He offered a wide variety of experiences. He spoke very clear English but could have also done it in Spanish w/o difficulty The food and drink experiences were nicely varied and plentiful. Wear comfortable shoes, you owe it to yourself so that you can enjoy every minute because it is well worth it. He can appeal to all age groups.
We had such a great time!! Daniel brought us on an informative, beautiful and delicious tour of Madrid. He was very knowledgeable and personable and we really appreciate his introduction to Madrid and its culture!
You'd do well to take this tour to better appreciate being in Madrid. It was a wonderful overview of Spanish culture and history. Our guide was Daniel Beers who was as familiar as any American friend that you may have and as aware as the native Spaniard that he is. He gave us brief, interesting histories of Madrid with every palace, plaza and place of interest he took us to see. There were 8 in our group. We ate like locals as we hopped from eatery to eatery and ended the evening with a nice light dinner around the table of a local restaurant.
I went on several tours while I was in Madrid and this was my favorite. The guide was knowledgeable and friendly. The food was fantastic. A must, must, must do.
This tour was fantastic! A small group around 12 people, and the guide was so funny! He had some interesting insides and storys. The restaurants were amazing and the food was fun, tasteful and the bear/vine was so nice, and the Scottish ascent of our guide was so fun to listen to in Spain!
