So glad we picked this tour! Our guide was from the UK but showed us Madrid like a native. So worth it!! Long night but you won’t realize it until the night is over.

My friend had warned me Madrid might not be great for a single traveler since everyone goes in groups. Whether or not he was right, this was a great way to do tapas my first night in Spain. James our guide made it great by getting everybody introduced. Lots of food and drinks. Very much worth it.

Great tour with a wonderful guide who took us to 4 tapas bars from the different regions of Spain. The price included the first bar and then we chipped in 20 Euros each to cover the remaining bars. We had enough to cover all and some to spare. I highly recommend the tour for those who want an introduction into this culinary adventures of Madrid.

Well worth the money. A great thing to do on your first night in Madrid to get familiar with old town and some customs. James was lots of fun and knew his stuff a Brit with 23 years in Madrid.

Wow! What a night! We had an amazing tour guide and a wonderful group of people to share the night with. The food and drink was fabulous. The night went so quickly. Charlie, our tour guide, ensured that we were safely in a taxi to go home. Couldn't ask for a better night.

Excellent tour! We not only visited four very different tapas bars with very different character, but they had very different menu choices as well. Our guide spoke excellent English and was very knowledgeable. She provided detailed explanation of the food types and choices available from different regions of Spain, which we were exposed to on the tour. She provided detailed history of the development of these various food choices and how they are prepared. Since we walked throughout the older part of Madrid, we also got a detailed history on many of the locations we passed, so of a historical walking tour of mid-town Madrid, only at night, a freebie. Highly recommend this tour very early in sightseeing as it helps in sorting out thetapas experience during the remainder of your stay as this appears to be the only food available throughout Spain. Our guide, Miriamsp, was the best guide of our entire 10 days in Spain and we had many excellent guides.

We are so glad we did this. We are both adventurous types who aren't afraid of the unknown, and we had already explored earlier during our first day in Madrid, but our guide Miriam and our group bonded very early during this night out. Miriam took us to some great stops and made incredible food recommendations and drink pairings along the way. 4 hours later we all said goodnight and went our separate ways, but shared a lot of stories and laughs along the way. My wife and I both felt that this was the best excursion money we've spent during our travels through many countries and are probably going to do it again in Seville.
