Andrea was just great

I was a little worried that I wouldn't understand everything with my tourist English. But Andrea was just wonderful, took the time to explain something twice, took us through really great tapas bars and into the grandiose market hall. The food was delicious, as was the wine. In any case, I didn't feel like I was in a tourist rip-off, but as if Andrea would like to show us the whole city. Thanks so much.

Great historic stroll through the streets of Madrid, with discoveries of tapas and their history! our guides Juan Carlos and Cynthia were very nice, ready for all the explanations and detours... end of the evening with the discovery of the original Flamenco! We recommend, thanks again to them.

Fun time, as well as informative!

Our guide Alfonso was awesome, he was very funny as well as pointing out areas in Madrid I would never known on my own. He knew so much about different Tapas as well which wines went with them. I would recommend this tour for anyone.

The tour guide was very knowledgeable and showed me around the city with great commitment. A very nice program.

Great tour, delicious tapas, friendly tour guide. Hidden bars in Madrid!
