This was a lot of fun and an unbelievable amount of food. I would highly recommend this tour in the first day or two you're in Madrid because you'll want to go back to many of the places for more tapas.

What a wonderful experience! It really is a must. It opened our eyes to a lot of posibilities when it comes to dinning in Spain. We have travelled over 2000 km in Spain and dined at lots of places before we came to Madrid and this is our best experience yet. Cecilia, our guide, had made it even more memorable with her passion about her Country, the food and wine produced from different regions of Spain. Thank you Cilia for a marvellous culinary experience. We will definitely recommend it to family and friends.

This tour was a high light of our stay in Madrid for my husband and myself and Cecelia our guide was excellent. She made it so much fun and gave us a real incite into the local foods and wine. We were treated to a feast of food and wine so don't eat much before and we discovered hidden gems that we may not have found on own.

Cecilia from Urban Adventures was AMAZING. We ended up having a very small group and learned SO much about the city, the neighborhoods and the food and wine we were having. We got sooo much food and generous amounts of wine, I could barely walk by the end of the night! The tour was so outstanding that I booked a market tour with Cecilia for the next day, which was equally as fabulous. WELL WORTH the money and met some awesome folks that I continue to keep in touch with. Definitely recommend Cecilia, Urban Adventures, and this tour to anyone visiting, whether it's your first time or a repeat visit.
