What To Expect

Greet your gastronomical guide in central Madrid and set out to explore the esteemed eateries of the city. As you stroll, listen to your guide’s culinary commentary of the capital, hearing about the origin of tapas and the inspiration for the delicate dishes. 

Visit several bars during your tapas tour, all of which showcase the influence that Madrid’s immigrant population has had with their cosmopolitan cuisine. Taste wines designed to complement each dish as you feast upon Spanish specialties such as delicately salted cod, flavorsome Iberian ham, rich chickpea stew, and roasted eggplant with honey. Sip refreshing beers and soft drinks and conclude your tour in a centrally located bar that allows you to continue exploring independently.

Plaza de Santa Ana

Meeting Point. Important to be on time. The tour departs on time. Meet your guide in Santa Ana Square, and set off on a tapas crawl of the city, exploring the best bars that only locals really know of. As you stroll, your guide will chat to you about Madrid, the local cuisine and, of course, the tapas bars that no great evening in Madrid should be without! Like all Spanish cities, Madrid has its own regional cuisine with an emphasis on use of local ingredients. Perhaps more so than others, Madrid has been influenced by its immigrant population, who’ve brought in flavors and ideas as cosmopolitan as the city itself. Visit up to four bars on your tour of the town, enjoying wine tastings in each. Sample beautiful Spanish wines made from well-known grapes like tempranillo, malvar, garnacha, and parellada, and enjoy a complimentary tapa (tapas dish) to complement the wine's flavors. Beer and soft drinks (one per bar) are also included should you prefer this to wine! While the dishes vary on each occasion, you can be sure it’s a taste bud tingling treat! Examples of dishes include eggplant with honey, cod brandade, Spanish omelet, Iberian ham and chickpea stew. See the example itinerary for details on the different bars you may visit. Your tapas tour finishes in a centrally located bar so that you’re well-placed to continue your night out independently. ITINERARY -------------------- Bar 1: Head inside an atmospheric Castilian sherry bar, and learn all about fortified wines, from crisp and dry finos to old olorosos. Admire the chalk boards scrawled with daily tapas specials and soak up the atmosphere inside this delightfully old-fashioned bar. Bar 2: Visit a wine bar that doubles up as a store – tucked away behind liquor bottles! If you like what you eat or drink here, then purchase it from the shop to take home. Bar 3: A warm and bustling tavern welcomes you with their open kitchen were you can see how the dishes are prepared Bar 4: Round off your evening in style at a dark and bohemian Madrid tavern, which is still in business after 100 years, you will enjoying a full-bodied glass of wine.

Great food and great tour guide. The guide speaks 4 languages- we requested the English tour but a member of our group only speaks German. The guide speaks German as well and went out of his way to ensure everyone felt included and welcomed.

Amazing Tour with Tapas and Wne
LasanthaRanasinghe, Jun 2022
Naomi, our guide was amazing and so was the small group we were with. There were other people from the US and 3 wonderful ladies from Switzerland in our group. We had a great time sampling some amazing tapas and wine at 4 different bars. Naomi was very knowledgeable and explained everything at each bar. We loved the fact that the bars we visited were not touristic but the places that regular Madrid folks go to. We had an amazing experience and highly recommend this tour! ❤️
Great tour!
Karen_I, Jun 2022
Great tour and great value for money. We visited four bars and had a glass of wine and substantial tapas at each. Lots of variety too. And our host Paula was great! Thank you!
