Our host (David B) was so friendly, welcoming, knowledgeable, and engaging throughout our entire evening. He explained the history of Madrid in a way that was easy to follow even without background knowledge. The food was delicious at every stop and we found places we never would have found on our own. Our group was great - we loved how it was small (6 guests total). David gave us so many tips for finding more great food during our time in Spain. Would absolutely recommend our friends and family to book this tour, especially if it was with David.
Far exceeded expectations

Was incredible, Cassie was a great host and showed us some great spots. Was open to all types of questions, and provided us with great insight of where to go for the rest of our trip. Tried some plates and restaurants I would never try on my own and was pleasantly surprised.
Fun tour with knowledgeable guide and delicious food!

Jose Romero was our wonderful guide. We had an amazing experience eating tapas and learning about the history of Spain and Madrid. We went to four different tapas bars, having a sit down sampling at the last place. It was our first night in Madrid and it was a great way to get oriented and have fun making new friends on our tour. My favorite tapas were the shrimp and garlic and stuffed mushrooms. I would highly recommend this tour and Jose.
Great time and great food! And great guide!
