Concludes in a centrally located Madrid bar not necessarily at Plaza Mayor but so close.

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.

Itinerary
Stop At:  
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.

Fun tour around the Madrid block
Ahram_Y

We had so much fun at this Tapas and Wine Tasting tour. Our guide (Pablo..? sorry..) was very knowledgeable and friendly. After couple glasses, we were just having fun, but we also learned a lot about history of some Tapas restaurants, popular Spanish dishes, and different vineyards in Spain. However, the explanations were very brief, if you want to learn more, you should ask lots of questions to your guide, which was what we did. Definitely recommend doing this on beginning of your trip, so you learn more about what to go eat and drink around town.

Thank you! We are so glad you had fun. Our purpose is to show you how to move around the city like a Madrilenian, and to know what to eat and drink. And of course our guides are happy to answer all your questions! Hope to see you again

Amazing Food & Wine Tour!

My husband and I do food tours in every city we visit and this tour in Madrid has been one of our all time favorites! The tapas were amazing (love that we visited off the beaten path locations) and we got to sample wines from very unique regions in Spain. We thought it was the best wine we’ve ever had on a food tour! A great experience overall, we strongly recommend.

Thank you very much Olivia! We work hard to show you the authentic Madrid, the true tapas, and that you can enjoy the same good wines and food that the locals enjoy. Hope to see you again!
