We were thrilled and so happy we decided to take this tour! It was such a wonderful experience. We met our guide - Enrique - along with two other couples so there were just six of us and our guide. First, I must say our guide, Enrique was absolutely phenomenal. He is an expert in wines having studied oenology. He is incredibly knowledgeable and particularly can inform you about the different wine growing regions of Spain and the different wineries where the wines come from. He was amazingly accommodating too. Some of us were gluten free and he made sure we had a selection of gluten free tapas. Yes that's right this is a wine tasting but includes tapas and he very graciously accommodated our allergies. Again all the wines we tasted were excellent. Enrique was very accommodating in the groups preferences for either red or white wines and we tasted several different wines at each tapas bar. Enrique also told us about each of the tapas bars and the history behind each one. Something we would have never gotten from the books. He is very energetic and so personable. I would strongly recommend this tour and if you go you should ask for Enrique's tour. You will be delighted!
This was a great way to end our first day in Madrid. Visiting a few Tapas bars and trying out a lot of the local food was wonderful
Enrique was very enthusiastic and knowledgable. He provided a fabulous service and we had a marvellous evening. Well worth it as wouldn't have discovered vermouth otherwise!!!!
My boyfriend and I did this tour the first night we are in our late 20's age we were in Madrid and highly recommend doing the same!!! It was a great start to our vacation to learn about Madrid and the food scene in Madrid to prepare us for the week. We had Enrique who was amazing!! Highly recommend asking for Enrique. He was so knowledgable and friendly! The places were definitely authentic and way more food than I expected we actually ate a little before unsure how much would be included. Thanks Enrique!!

So fun... like going out with a group of friends. Would definitely do this again.
So much fun. Delicious food, unique wine and a guide who knew how to make the event fun and informative. Thanks, Carlos!
I loved it! all the food were great and ofcousre the wine. Had a great time that evening. Glad I did it.
Great experience! I extended my stay in Spain and was travelling by myself for my last and only night in Madrid. The tour was a fantastic way to experience local and historical Madrid. The group was small and perfect for getting to know each other. Our guide Paula was fantastic. She had lined up four wonderful places for tapas and selected great wine.
We loved the tapas and wine tour! Our tour guide was fantastic, fun, and well-informed. All of the food and wine was amazing, each stop offered something new and interesting. We had a wonderful group of people who made the evening even more enjoyable!
This was one of the highlights of our visit to Madrid. Our guide Enrique, who is very knowledgeable, took us to some of the best tapas restaurants that were off the beaten track but served the most delicious food. The tour was filled with people from all over the globe and everyone had a great time together. We felt that we reallly experienced a Madrid that many people may miss on their visit. I highly recommend this tour.
Fue el primer dia en Madrid, y uno de los mejores, de los diez dias que duro nuestra estadia, Enrique hizo la diferencia, tremendo ser humano, animo el tour con gran entusiasmo, sin duda la mejor forma de comenzar nuestra vela da con Madrid tapas deliciosas, vinos esplendidos, gran conocimiento cultural y gastronomico de parte de Enrique, que sea bendecido.
Excellent tour and Enrique was a great guide! Highly recommended
Our guide Paula was fantastic. The tour with her and a great small group was among the best hours I spent during my week in Madrid
I took the tour with my two friends and we really enjoyed it! Paula, our guide was fantastic! She mixed facts with fun in a perfect way and she seemed to know a lot, not only about the food and wine but also the Madrid history. The mix of different wines and tapas was also great. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone going to Madrid!
Thourghly enjoyed this tour, great sampling and variety of food. I favor the sweeter red wines, actually sangria but this is official wines of the region which were top notch.

Loved this tour. Our guide, Carlos, was great! He selected a number of different tapas places each featuring a specialty.
The food was plentiful and different. It was an easy pace to get from one area to another. We had a great group of people in the tour which made it even more fun!
This was a seriously good night. Good value for money, great food, plenty of wine and a terrific guide. Thank you.
My husband and I took part in the Tapas and Wine Tour offered by your company on Friday, September 30th. This was our first night in Madrid and what a great start!!
Paula, our guide, was amazing - informative and great fun! Her personality is well suited to being a tour guide - her English was exceptional and readily willing and able to answer all our questions.
We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and, in fact, returned to the area the next day trying to find the locales we visited. My only suggestion is that perhaps a small map of the area be provided indicating the location of the tapas bars we are visiting. Paula did kindly provide a summary the next day but the internet in the hotels is not always working at its best in order for we tourists to access our emails.
Overall, I would give it an 11 out of 10 and we would certainly both recommend it and Paula, especially! or take it again when in Madrid. Thanks so much again, Paula!

I took this tour on my first evening in Spain, and it was a great introduction. Enrique led our group of 11 English-speaking visitors to historic places with amazing tapas. Enrique, whose English was impeccable, talked about Madrid history as we walked around. Best of all, he has extensive experience in wine-making himself, and coached us on wines from all around Spain that complemented the tapas. You couldn't ask for a better guide than Enrique.
If you come to Madrid and want to taste the best of local tapas bars sign up for this tour. OUr tour guide Enrique knew the area like the back of his hand. Took us to several out of the way local tapas bars. Had it not been for him we would never had known what to order. Having 10 people on the tour meant we could order several tapas and share. He chose them. Wines which were all very good. Truly a gastronomic experience for any foodie or enophile. If I saw here 3 more nights I would take the same tour 3 more times. Truly a great experience.
Great food and wine, plus Enrique provided plenty of history about the food and the area. Can't think of a better way to spend my first night in Madrid after a long flight. I could relax knowing dinner and sightseeing were all well organised.
It was excellent. Highly recommended, Enrique also gave us a history lesson. We all got a good amount of tastings both food and wine. We did not need dinner.
Great guide. Excellent wine choices and great tapas. A must do!
Had a wonderful experience with our tour guide and will recommend it again
Enrico our tour guide did an amazing job with this event. The Tapas and wine choices along with the restaurant were fabulous. Highly recommend this .
