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!

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!!

Excelente tour. Una buena oportunidad para conocer los principales lugares del centro de Madrid, mientras pruebas las tapas mas típicas de Madrid. Carmen, la guía, sabe mucho acerca de la ciudad y da un excelente explicación de cada tapa y lugar por el que va el tour.

We had a lot of fun with our guide. He first took us to non-touristy corners of Madrid. Unfortunately, we stayed too long in the first "local". So in the end there weren't that many different places. But it doesn't matter, it was still great.

Carmen was amazing!! Very knowledgeable on the history of the food and wine !! The food was delicious, it was such a petty evening!! Highly recommended it!! Thank you Carmen!!
