We shared a wonderful evening sampling tapas and drink at a variety of locations with Andrea our guide of Urban Adventure. Only my husband and I were on this particular tour so we felt as if we were sharing the evening with a friend. We had no trouble rescheduling our tour because we were delayed arriving in Madrid. We highly recommend the tour. Thank you Urban Adventure for making our first night in Madrid extra special.

Our guide, Cecelia, was fantastic.
Her knowledge of the foods, wines and history of Spain were vast. We went to San Miguel market for amazing wines, olives and cheeses and terrific tapas bars and learned much about the history and regional aspects of Spain. Truely an excellent tour. Thanks Cecelia!

So much amazing food! This was a very well organized tour of food, wine and history. It included a lot of less well known food items in interesting restaurants -- you won't be hungry at the end
And we even got a customized email from Cecilia with a full description of what we ate, drank and saw and ideas for what else to do in Madrid and our other travels!

And despite the short notice we booked just a couple hours ahead she was able to customize the food options for my gluten allergy!

It was a ball.Our guide Andria made it interesting and fun. We viewed places that I would never have found. The food was also food that I would not have ever experienced on my own. I certainly recommend this adventure.

I LOVE doing walking food tours in new cities: small group size I don't like being herded around in large tour groups, get to try all the must-eats, and you get to see and learn about the city. This one was no exception and was fantastic! Our tour guide, Andrea, grew up in Madrid and new a lot of history about the city. We were able to visit some secret spots and try some food where the locals ate. In addition, she was very friendly and we made an impromptu stop to sing along with some musical fireman very fun!. All of the food was delicious and there was plenty. Do NOT eat before going on the food tour!!! You receive a good portion of food from appetizers to main course to dessert to drinks. Highly recommend
