Full description

Enjoy the true art of Tapeo in this experience in which you will discover Spanish gastronomy from bar to bar visiting different neighborhoods.

The tour will start at the San Miguel square and head to La Latina, Cava Baja street, where most of the famous sites for Tapeo exist. There, taste traditional Spanish croquettes, particularly ham or even shellfish, of course, a good wine to pair.

The route will continue through different bars in the center of Madrid, where you taste typical mushroom tapas or Padrón peppers. Answer the important questions, why are some hot and others not? accompanied by a beer or cider.

Near the last stop, the tour arrives in the San Miguel Market, to taste the famous pintxos of Bilbao accompanied by a Txakoli glass. Afterward, walk through the Plaza Mayor and Barrio de las Letras, where famous poets and artists spent the best years of their lives.

The last tasting stop is a traditional meat cheek with mashed potatoes, paired with a good wine, preferably red. Can you think of a better ending than going up to a terrace with excellent views of Madrid to enjoy a drink? (Only available on the evening tour.)

Have fun and feel unique in your experience in a small group premium tour.

Laura was our guide, and we couldn’t have asked for a better tour! The group (4 couples from all around the US) became very friendly and it enhanced the whole experience. All the food and drink stops were enjoyable, and Laura gave us really great information, as she took us through various neighborhoods and explained cuisines and customs. The final rooftop bar drink was a perfect end to the tour, and the group stayed for another round because we having such a great time together. Definitely a highlight of our Madrid trip! Highly recommended.

We had the tour from guide Lisa. She was so nice and made everyone feel comfortable! The tour through the city was very nice, she told about the neighborhoods and the restaurants. The market hall and the places where we ate were super. We chose the red wine, and it was super good every time. The veal cheek was delicious, as well as the tortilla, the mushrooms and the shrimps with garlic in a goofy. We had a very nice group and ended the tour with a cocktail on the rooftop bar. The cocktails were tasty! The weather was a bit less, so it wasn't very busy. The location was nice, in an upmarket area of Madrid. I would recommend this tour at the start of your holiday in Madrid! Then you immediately have ideas what you can do and where you can eat well.

We had a great group and a great guide named Augustin. He really explained a lot to us about the city and the food and always had a casual saying ready. The locations at the stops are well chosen and you get a great insight into the Spanish world of tapas. Matching drinks are always served. The highlight is of course the conclusion on a well-known rooftop bar in Madrid with an amazing view. I would recommend this tour to anyone who is in Madrid.
