This was our favorite experience in Madrid. The tour guide, Enrique, was so knowledgeable about the history of the wineries, the wine making process, and wine and food pairings. We loved his choices of tapas and wine. He was also very friendly and fun! You have to experience this for yourself!

I had the pleasure of participating in the wine and tapas tour with Enrique as our guide.

Everything was perfect, start to finish. The meeting spot was easy to find and once there we were divided into two groups as so many people had signed up. Our group consisted of 10 people, which was a good size. I do want to point out that two families were in our group, and both had teenage children with them. The tour was entirely appropriate for the adults and teens. Enrique gave us a history/walking tour as we made our way through the streets of Madrid, between the different tapas spots. Each stop was unique as to wine and food offerings.

At each stop, Enrique explained the region of Spain the wines came from that we were tasting and how the tapas complimented the wines. The amount of food and wine was plenty to satisfy at each stop. I believe there were 4 stops and each was quite unique and had a great history which Enrique explained. One stop was cheese and ham, one was a collection of seafood dishes, one was a special spicy shrimp dish, and the last stop was several sweets.

There was no skimping on quality, quantity, or service. The tour never felt rushed and Enrique was fully engaged with the group at all times and was personable and fun! Such a great guide and tour.

I arrived in Madrid at 8 am and took this tour at 8 pm the same day in an effort to stave off jetlag and adjust to the time difference. Perfect choice! I highly recommend both Enrique as a guide and the tour in general. It was the perfect introduction to tapas, Spanish wine, and Spain in general for me.

Do not miss out on this! I looked up several tapas tours, and I am so happy that I booked this one. Our guide was great and the places he took us were so awesome. It was a lot of food, and we were more than full by the end of it. I'm a vegetarian as well, and our guide was excellent at accommodating me to make sure there were veggie options. We tried great wines as well, and met some really interesting people. Definitely won't regret this!

We had a wonderful experience and would even do the exact same tour again. Our dynamic guide, Enrique, taught us a lot about Madrid's culture, food, and customs in a very short time. He also gave us some excellent recommendations on other places to visit--not just restaurants. If you take this tour and you should, be sure to pace yourself as there are SO many fine dishes to sample. Go hungry!

Excellent tour - a real highlight of our stay in Madrid. Our guide Enrique kept the tour well paced, fun and interesting. The wines we tried were great and the food delicious and plentiful. Just a small group of 12, good mix and a lot of laughs. A must do in Madrid!
