I really enjoyed my tapas tour with Carmen and highly recommend you take this tour when in Madrid! The tapas and wine/beer were sooo good! I especially loved the Spanish omelette and the mushrooms...sooo good!! And I liked how she also shared history and important cultural points along the way. She's very friendly, knowledgeable, and has crafted an excellent experience even if you're a solo traveller!

Carmen had been such a wonderful host. She took us to 4 exclusive tapas bar ( restaurants). Taught us the Spanish toast. Took us to the oldest running restaurant of the world. Showed us the way iberica ham is sliced snd the way suckling pigs are roasted. She described the difference between tinto, roja and sangria. Her knowledge of spanish history is incredible. We enjoyed every minute with her. God bless her. It was a superlative experience to relish the food, culture and history of Spain.

Carmen was an excellent host on our tapas & wine tour. She met us promptly and took us to 3 unique locations that we wouldn't have seen on our own. All of the food was great and the history and information provided at each stop along with on our walk was top notch. I would definitely book another tour hosted by her again the next time I'm in Madrid.

Carmen met our family for a tapas tour: couple in our 70's and our adult daughter. She was very expressive & obviously loved her job. She took us to 3 tapas bars where we tried various foods which were new to us. Also she explained a lot about fascinating Spanish customs & food.

Great tour with Carmen. 3 Stops to have the true Tapas experience. Carmen was great at explaining the social customs of Tapas along the way, as well as explaining in great detail the differences between the meats & fish. We also had great conversations about Spanish life in general, family, challenges etc. She gave us great insight into so much more. We truly enjoyed our time with her. Highly recommend the tour and if you can get Carmen to be your host it will be an even greater experience!

It was an amazing tour! Our guide was great! She was very knowledgable with the history of Madrid. She took us to great restaurants. What I thought was unique is she showed us the techniques of how the food is eaten. I would highly recommend this tour.
