My husband and I took this tour a few nights ago. It was our first night in Madrid, and we loved the tour. Our tour guide Daniella was excellent! In addition to teaching us about the local tapas and drinks, she showed us a lot of interesting and off the beaten path places and told us lots of interesting info about Madrid. There was more food and drink on the tour than you could possibly eat or drink. No one on our tour could finish it all. I highly recommend that you do this tour.

Definitely do this tour one of your first evenings in Madrid! You'll learn so much, find the best spots to eat and where not to eat and learn all the local tapas and drinks. Our tour guide, Daniela 'Nicole!' lol was very knowledgable, funny and a great tour guide. She knew the city well, took time to get to know each of us and did an overall great job. Thanks Daniela!

The tour was awesome. The tapas were crazy good. My 10 year old boy loved it too. The chocolate place we went to we believe was featured in Somebody Feed Phil on Netflix which was awesome!!! Even if you don't drink alcohol, you will still enjoy the delicious tapas. I am leaving this review of my own free will because I feel as though this tour was exceptional. A truly authentic tapas experience!!!

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!

We LOVED Andrea!! One of the best tour guides ever. Her knowledge of history was extensive and her enjoyment of food and culture was contagious. We loved this food tour and highly recommend it to anyone wanting to eat well and learn more about Madrid.

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.
