The Ultimate Madrid Tapas & Wine Tour

Jamon_foodlovertourThe Spanish capital is as famous for its museums as it is for its vibrant days and effervescent nightlife, which takes place in bustling bars, atmospheric taverns, friendly pubs, intriguing wine shops and inviting restaurants. When you visit Madrid, you can’t help but notice how much time the locals spend away from home.

Let us take you on a tapas tour around Madrid to show you where the locals meet and eat and where you can immerse yourself in Madrid’s culture.

On the Madrid Tapas Tour, we take you where authentic madrileños get together to eat the best Spanish tapas and drink local wines. This happens in historical bars and restaurants where the owners have been cooking and serving typical and delicious Spanish food the same way over the ages, from one generation to the next.

Our evening tapas tour in Madrid starts in the Las Letras neighbourhood, where a knowledgeable guide takes you for a stroll between the three stops where you’re going to sample a wide variety of Spanish tapas and drinks. Learn surprising facts about the history, architecture and culture of a city founded in the 9th century. Throughout the tour, you will better understand the local gastronomy and eating habits in Spain’s capital city.

Our first stop is at a tavern first opened almost 200 years ago, where we sample food and drinks from that very period. The original recipes for everything they serve here have been preserved for generations.

The second stop on our tapas tour in Madrid combines authentic tapas with traditional Spanish music in a centuries-old bar that remains a gastronomic institution for the locals to this day.

The final stop is at one of the most exclusive restaurants in Madrid. There, you have the opportunity to enjoy a gastronomic dinner with several courses, great Spanish wines and a luxurious dessert to end the tapas tour on a sweet note.

Holiday closures: December 24th, 25th, 31st and January 1st

What Our Guests Say

"Absolutely delicious"

I booked this tour for me and my wife. We did this experience with a five-member family, so we were seven total, which was perfect. Raul met us right on time at the meeting point and took us to a famous bakery for locals. It was crowded but he picked out some just baked goods for us, some of them were still warm! Absolutely delicious. Then we moved to the second spot, a bakery from 1855, a really beautiful “salon de té.” The “turron” shop was really incredible, and of course, we tried churros con chocolate. Five spots in total, in this sweet and cultural five stars experience.

"Everything yummy in sight"

We had both been before to the city but going on the Sweet tour made us feel that we had seen a whole new side to the city that we had not seen before. We visited many different patisseries and shops and ate some of the most wonderful cakes and everything yummy in sight! Our guide knew so much about the food and the city whilst being so lovely and friendly that it was like wandering round with an old friend. Would 100% do this tour again, was worth every cent!

"Best chocolate cake in world"

Great time had by both kids and parents. Good tour learning a little about the food and history of Barcelona. Tried different things that we may not have found including almond milk, the best churros in town and officially the best chocolate cake in world.

"Try the local sweets"

We did the Sweet Lover Tour to celebrate my wife's birthday and as we both have a sweet tooth I thought it would be a good idea for us. Spain is obviously fantastic for Tapas but we wanted to try the local sweets and learn more about the stories behind them and this tour was perfect for that and our guide gave us a great understanding and feel of the history behind these sweet delicacies we tasted. On top of that we saw more of the local sights so that made it better.

"Our tour guide was a delight"

This tour was fantastic and our tour guide was a delight. Her knowledge of the locations, and the sweets we sampled was impeccable. The pace of the tour was enjoyable and the range of sweets was good. It was definitely a nice way to learn more about the city & the local food while satisfying our sweet tooth. We would definitely recommend this tour for anyone visiting Spain.
