This was our first experience of a tour like this and I’m just disappointed I waited to be nearly 40 before trying one! Our guide - Carlos - was friendly, knowledgeable and really helpful. He took care to ensure all his guests were well catered for and took us to some beautiful, hidden gems. One huge benefit of the tour was the speed at which we were served in some extremely busy establishments. In addition, the food and wine choices were simply superb. I guess with anything like this your group can make or break the experience - we were lucky to be joined by a mixed group of fabulous characters - thanks to Carlos, the group and all the establishments for a brilliant evening

Our group of six consisted of me and my husband and our traveling companions. Carlos was our tour guide. He was very knowledgeable about the area we walked in and also about the history of the four places we visited. The wine pour at each place was generous and the food was quite good. My husband is not a wine drinker and was able to sample the local beer at each establishment. I, personally had no experience with Tapas and found it a wonderful way to sample many different types of local dishes. I would recommend this tour as a great way to spend an afternoon and Carlos as a very amiable and knowledgeable guide.

Paula was so nice and very knowledgeable. My brother and I had the most wonderful time eating Tapas and tasted some world class wine. I would highly recommend Paula as the person to ask for when doing a Madrid wine and tapas tasting.

We did this tour on our first night in Madrid. It was very fun! The food was excellent (you will not leave hungry), and the wine delicious. Our guide Enrique was excellent. He taught us about Vermouth, which we ended up sampling in many of the tapas bars we visited throughout Spain. Highly recommend.

Enrique provided an excellent experience as well as was very knowledgeable when it came to his selections. My personal favorite was the restaurant, El Lacon which resulted in a follow up visit after the tour was over. I highly recommend this tour during your trip to Madrid.

It was a great evening. I thoroughly enjoyed the food, however it was so much it could have been one less stop in my opinion. The best stop was the prawn restaurant I've never had shrimp that good!! Our guide does this more part time but he was enjoyable and knowledgeable.

Enrique was a fantastic guide who mixed local history with amazing food and fantastic wines and vermouth. We visited family owned places that would not stand out to non locals but offered warm welcome and terrific specialty dishes and bespoke wines.
