Good intro to Madrid

Our guide Maria, gave a good introduction to Spainish wines, filled us in on the different grades of Iberian ham and showed us a great place to have chocolate and churro. Stopped for seafood tapas as well. All in all, an informative and enjoyable evening. Would highly recommend for a start to a Madrid stay.

The group size was perfect 3 couples and the 6 of us were made to feel very welcome, we really learnt a lot about the food the regions of Spain and Spanish life. I can’t recommend this tour enough our best Spanish tour.
