This was an amazing experience. I cannot recommend it highly enough! Brian, our guide, took us to the places where the local people go for their traditional Spanish meals. Of course, the star of the show was the Iberico ham. Brian is so knowledgeable about this incredibly delicious ham. He also paired a couple of fantastic Spanish wines with the tasting. One was a Madrid wine, and the other a Spanish red, both absolutely delicious. Brian explained the grading system for Iberico ham, as well as the breed of pig it comes from. It was awesome, and I'll be a more informed shopper in the future for sure. Thanks Brian for an amazing evening!

Pedro was a wonderful guide, and is very knowledgable about Jamon Iberico and all things Spanish wine and tapas! My dad is extremely interested in beef and food production and this made the absolute best birthday gift for him as a tourist activity to do with our family in Madrid. Pedro was very kind, patient, and was able to answer all of our questions. We had a great time and would definitely recommend!

Pedro is friendly, knowledgable and clearly passionate about all things Spanish culture! We had the best time with him, learning not just about Wine & Ham but also about other aspects of Spanish culinary culture. He also had a great sense of humour and made us feel so at ease in his company. If you only do one tour in Madrid, make it one of his!
