Must do in Madrid!
Theresa_E, May 2023
All I can say is you are missing out of you don’t go on this tour. A great way to taste some great wines and enjoy some fantastic tapas. Our guide was very knowledgeable about Madrid cuisine. He also provided some great recommendations. When I come back with friends, we will do this tour! Went with my 24 year old son and we both completely enjoyed it.
Fantastic experience full of wine, food and information !
Paul_Y, Apr 2023
We highly recommend booking this trip. Andres was fantastic, his knowledge of the city/wines is incredible! He really made it a night to remember. We got to experience some fantastic local restaurants and enjoyed some beautiful wine. I would recommend this trip to anyone and would not hesitate to return myself! Thank you Andres!
Old Town Madrid with Friends
Jeffrey_S, Apr 2023
Andres knew our names right from the start of the tour which put us right at ease. It was a good mix of ages in our small group of 4 couples, about 25-60 years old. I loved the experience and being introduced to a more part of old Madrid with local family oriented charm, off the main streets. Always do a small group tour, it is the best experience!
joe_s, Apr 2023
Andres is the perfect host. He is very knowledgeable and provides a great experience. The restaurant choices were fantastic!
Don’t miss this tour!!
Brian_C, Oct 2022
Do not miss this tour. We went walking through areas of Madrid that we would not have seen without this tour. Our tour guide took us to several eating establishments for delicious tapas paired with fabulous wines. We had lots to eat and heard great details and stories of Madrid, Spain and the food we were eating.
Outstanding food, wine and fun
Kathleen_D, May 2022
We learned a lot about the oldest parts of the city, classic dishes of the best quality and the heritage wines paired with various foods. Andres was an outstanding guide and we all had an enjoyable evening together
Response from Host, May 2022
Super! Thanks for the review!
Very very recommended!
ZIAD_M, Aug 2019
We had an amazing night with Andres. The food was great, the wines were super, and most importantly we enjoyed the company. Andres knows a lot about wine and he made us try dishes and different types of wine that we wouldn't have known about on our own and he went out of his way to accommodate our requests. This tour should be the number 1 thing on your to do list in Madrid.
Response from Host, Aug 2019
Ziad, I had doubts but now I am sure, YOU ARE THE BEST! ;-D
Delicious and educational!
Barndi_K, Apr 2019
My boyfriend and I had a great time on this food tour where we got to not only eat delicious food but learn the layout and a little history of the city. I always recommend that folks do this at the beginning of their visit bc it’s an ideal way to get your bearings.
great evening
Dennis_B, Sep 2018
We scheduled a 2 and 1/2 hour tapas tour with Andreas. It was outstanding!! We had graet food and wine at three locations. Andres's knowledge and presentation made the evening fly. We actually ended up with a four hour event.We enjoyed the third location so much we took other people there 3 days later.Clearly we would recommend this to any visitor to Madrid.

Jaime T, Aug 2018
Wonderful tapas! I wish I could remember the name of the restaurant we went to at the end of the night where we had the pork steak. It was so delicious. Also, I loved the place where we went for the Spanish Tortilla. It was divine!

Jenn C, May 2018
We booked this tour during a LONG layover before heading to France! It allowed us to conveniently leave the airport by taxi, meet a group for a walking tour of Madrid, with literally a NICE taste of local Spanish tapas and drinks! We were buzzed and full by the time we got back to the airport, made our flight, and couldn't imagine a better way to have spent our day!!!

Ian C, Mar 2018
A MUST. Fantastic value for money. Andreas was a fantastic host. The selected alcoholic beverages were amazing. You don't walk very far. You just sit, eat and drink with friends you have just met. I have been on similar tours in other cities and cannot believe the quality/quantity of food supplied on the tour. Thank you Andreas, you made Madrid for us.

Theresa F, Sep 2017
Went with my boyfriend and neither of us are huge wine drinkers The different wines and tappas at various locations in the area were extremely enjoyable We tried so many things we never would have known about if not for this tour. Our group consisted of 8 adults and NO CHILDREN ALLOWED thank god All of the places you visit are close to each other so no real distance walking. Possibly a block at most. Our tour guide was very pleasant and informative and made everyone feel relaxed. Without this tour we never would have found the area that it was in. We liked it so much we walked around on our own the remainder of the night checking out bars and cafes in this neighborhood

Robert F, Aug 2017
Very enjoyable tour around a variety of establishments. Our guide, Andres, was very knowledgeable about the origin and culture of the part of Madrid we visited. With the amount of great tapas, cheese and wine consumed, the tour is very good value for money.
