Visit several bars during your tapas tour, all of which showcase the influence that Madrid’s immigrant population has had with their cosmopolitan cuisine.

Itinerary
Stop At:  
Plaza de Santa Ana
Meeting Point. Important to be on time. The tour departs on time. Meet your guide in Santa Ana Square, and set off on a tapas crawl of the city, exploring the best bars that only locals really know of. As you stroll, your guide will chat to you about Madrid, the local cuisine and, of course, the tapas bars that no great evening in Madrid should be without! Like all Spanish cities, Madrid has its own regional cuisine with an emphasis on use of local ingredients. Perhaps more so than others, Madrid has been influenced by its immigrant population, who’ve brought in flavors and ideas as cosmopolitan as the city itself. Visit up to four bars on your tour of the town, enjoying wine tastings in each. Sample beautiful Spanish wines made from well-known grapes like tempranillo, malvar, garnacha, and parellada, and enjoy a complimentary tapa (tapas dish) to complement the wine's flavors. Beer and soft drinks (one per bar) are also included should you prefer this to wine! While the dishes vary on each occasion, you can be sure it’s a taste bud tingling treat! Examples of dishes include eggplant with honey, cod brandade, Spanish omelet, Iberian ham and chickpea stew. See the example itinerary for details on the different bars you may visit. Your tapas tour finishes in a centrally located bar so that you’re well-placed to continue your night out independently. ITINERARY -------------------- Bar 1: Head inside an atmospheric Castilian sherry bar, and learn all about fortified wines, from crisp and dry finos to old olorosos. Admire the chalk boards scrawled with daily tapas specials and soak up the atmosphere inside this delightfully old-fashioned bar. Bar 2: Visit a wine bar that doubles up as a store – tucked away behind liquor bottles! If you like what you eat or drink here, then purchase it from the shop to take home. Bar 3: A warm and bustling tavern welcomes you with their open kitchen were you can see how the dishes are prepared Bar 4: Round off your evening in style at a dark and bohemian Madrid tavern, which is still in business after 100 years, you will enjoying a full-bodied glass of wine.

Tapas and Wine Tour

We enjoyed the tour and the bars we visited. Just a few comments we would make. In the 1st bar (Galayos) we had an oblong table downstairs and we were 13 people + guide. Christine our guide sat at one end so was difficult to hear what she was saying about the food etc... suggest if that happens again she should sit on the longside in the middle so everyone can hear what she is saying. Also in the last bar instead of more savoury tapas that you could offer some kind of dessert instead with maybe a local sweet wine to go with it ??

Hello Steve. Thank you very much for your comments. We take note of your suggestions, thank you. The Madrid atmosphere is like that, sometimes we are a bit noisy! As for the food, it is always ordered taking into account your tastes, next time do not hesitate to tell the guide what you would like to taste. Hope to see you again

Good but a few issues
Cassandra_R

It’s a fun evening sampling new foods and meeting people. The food was enough to get full for dinner. I would recommend it but I had a few issues. First, they were very stingy on the wines. We did this tour several years ago and this tune I would say you got 1/2 glass at several places. Considering the $ and how much the food and wine really costs, that is disappointing. Also it was supposed to be an English speaking tour but 4 Spanish speaking only people joined us and our guide spent most of her time talking to them. And we never received the pictures of the tour.
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Thanks for book with us again! Our tours have not changed, they are the same in terms of amount of food and drink. The measure of a glass of wine is never to the top, that would be a mistake. The glasses are half filled, in order to better smell and taste the wine and maintain its optimum temperature. And there are different measures depending on whether the wine is red, white or sparkling. As for the language of the tour, as you can see in all the descriptions, it is simultaneously in English and Spanish. If it happens that everyone speaks English, the entire tour is conducted in English, otherwise it is conducted in both languages. The guide is happy to answer all your questions, perhaps the people you comment on were solving some doubt with the guide. Hope to see you again!

Julia_G

We really enjoyed the different kinds of tapas that we were able to try. It was also great to get some information about Madrid and its whereabouts. Our guide Christina really knew the area and gave us many tips around it. Lastly our group was, though from different paths of life, really friendly and we all just enjoyed our time. All in all, it was an evening well spent and a tour we will remember for a long time:)

Many guidebooks say that you can do a tapas night on your own. And maybe you can, but you won't get the variety and specialties that this tour will offer. There were some very special secrets shared.

Paula was a fantastic tour guide! She took our group of about 12 people to 4 great tapas bars. I thought all of the food and wine was wonderful! Especially the garlic shrimp! She told us about some Spanish history and about the neighborhoods. My recommendation is that you do this early in your trip so you can go back and visit some of the places again!

Getting to try foods and restaurants I would not have otherwise been aware of. I would suggest though that the group should be slightly smaller. It is hard to move around with 12-13 people in a crowded city and visit small restaurants.

Very disappointed done similar tour in Barcelona which as good this was not value for money would rather have spent 160 euros on nice meal hardly any food and 4 small glasses of wine
icon Response from Host , May 2022
We are sorry to read that you did not enjoy the tour. On another occasion you can tell the guide about any complaints you have and he will try to help you. Our customers always end up very satisfied and full with the food. And as for the wine, they are the normal measures of a glass of wine! Hope to see you again
