My husband and I did this experience and we both absolutely loved it. We really enjoyed that we were able to visit 4 amazing Tapas restaurants and got to try the best of each of their offerings. We were able to try amazing wine, vermouth, cider, and tapas throughout the evening. The guide was an excellent English speaker and so knowledgeable about the wines and foods we tried. He was also very fun to talk with during the course of the tour. Overall, I would recommend this experience if you would like to gain a deeper understanding of the tapas culture, have an interest in learning a bit more about Spanish wine, and love delicious food. It was also great getting to know the other participants. We had some really great conversations and fun times with other travelers from Brazil, the UK, and other Americans too. I learned so much more this way and really enjoyed the experience! 10/10 recommend!

Very informative. I was traveling alone and this tour gave me an idea about where to eat and how to eat in Madrid. It was a nice and polite group of people, which made the evening very pleasant. The tastes and the wines were excellent choices. I really enjoyed it.

Wow! Our quede, Carlos was amazing. He took us on a tour of four excellent tapas bars. A fun cross section of the regional cusine. I definitely recccommend this tour and Carlos. Do not worry, you will have had plenty to eat by the time you are done.

A great experience, lots of food and wine and nice to socialise with other travellers. Excellent value for money. Would definitely recommend!

Had a wonderful time exploring tapas and wine in the historic section of Madrid.
