Apart from my colleague and I, there were no other participants, so we had a de facto private tour. We got to know wonderful and typical tapas bars that we would not have visited otherwise. The food was delicious, we had a lot of fun thanks to Carmen's infectious charm and learned a lot. A thoroughly successful evening!!

Our guide, Carmen, was absolutely wonderful! She took us to 3 restaurants where we tried their specialty dish (which were all delicious!). Our final stop was churros and chocolate & it was a great way to end the night. Carmen also went above and beyond by pointing out other great restaurants along our tour that we could visit during the rest of our stay. Highly recommend this tour & book it at the beginning of your stay in Madrid!

Doing a tapas tour is really fun to get to know the city. You’ll visit the less touristic places with some of the best tapas. In the meanwhile you’ll learn more about the city. We were just with the two of us and the tour guide, which was fun, but the previous time when we did this in Barcelona we were with a big group and ended up going drinking with everyone. Highly recommend to do this!
