Great tour. Went to different bars and restaurants to sample wines and food. All excellet and not touristics. Went back to some of the restaurants the following nights in Madrid.
I think the tour was really nice. There were 8 of us plus a guide (Andreas). There were 4 people from the UK and 4 from the States, nice bunch. Andreas took us to 3 places where we tried 5 wines and different tapas. we went to places full of locals rather than tourists so we discovered and #34;locals and #34;Madrid
This is a great Tapas Tour that you should not miss. Andres, the guide, was very knowledgeable and explained about the city and each taberna, and he always looked around and took care of us, putting us together in an unified atomosphere. Food was great tortilla, Jamon Iberico de Bellota, Almejas, and much more!! and best matching wines to go with vermut, red, White and dessert wine. They can be seasonable and may change time to time, but I really recommend this tour if you would like to experiece Spanish traditional gastronomy.
Absolutely fantastic! Great group and great fun. After talking to other travelers who took other tours we realized just how great this one is. You can't go wrong with Andre - very gracious and fun to be around.
Guided tour was excellent, our guide was very knowledgeable and we have already recommended to a number of friends as the highlight of our trip!

I had a fabulous time. Our group was very small, the three of us and Andrés, our guide for the evening. I visit Madrid solo a lot and I wanted to experience different places than I am used to going, and to taste some new experiences. Andrés was a great host, interesting, and introduced us to some truly incredible tapas. There's lots of places you can taste mediocre tortilla but truly the one on this tour was perfection. The other tapa dishes were made with great care to flavours and the bars in La Latina were carefully chosen for their food and wine pairings. This walk is easy-going and you get to see Madrid centre beyond what you would do on your own. The wine pairing was excellent and food and drink generous. A really great deal.
Tapas and wine are not new for us. At first we were a little reluctant about this tour. However since this was the first night after arriving at Madrid and we reserved it just to have some orientation and take a glance of the nightlife and dinning of the city. Great, because we had the chance to meet a tour guide and a group that make this trip more than a tour, a night among friends. Our guide was a superb host, very knowledgeable and willing to go the extra mile to guarantee us a great experience, giving us one more reason to use Viator in our future trips. This tour was fantastic and we enjoyed like a good wine until the last drop.

This was a great experience! I learned some of the history of Madrid, with tips on where to eat and what to drink while in Madrid. The tapas were awesome and wines delicious. I wish I had done the tour at the beginning of my trip, rather than the end of it!! It was well worth the money.
Exceeded our high expectations. Truly a highlight of our visit. Small group, personal touch, and expert knowledge of city/neighborhood, foods and, of course, the many wines. And, we didn't feel rushed.
Great tour! I believe it was Alex? He was very knowledgeable, funny and generous with the pours...He took us to 3 different bars, the last one being the best- we had about 4 different delicious wines and food that was almost a full dinner- great meat dish. He knew his wines and history, he is a people person that knew how to make the group feel comfortable.
