The Ultimate Madrid Tapas & Wine Tour
The 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.
