Feel like a local as José Ignacio cuts us Jamón Ibérico, John offers us sweet and savory pastries, Cesar gives us the best of the seasonal fruit from his fruit and vegetable stand, Javier explains the difference between black and green olives (with plenty to taste of course) and Alejandra serves us a perfect calamari sandwich!

Best tour ever!
Gavin R, 14-10-2022
BEST TOUR EVER!!! I suggest booking this tour early in your trip to Spain and you are literally set to successfully eat and drink your way around Madrid and wider Spain. We were lucky enough to have 2 guides (Margit and Oliver) and both were hugely knowledgeable, friendly and passionate about all things culinary in Spain. Their local connections allowed us access to the finest of the staples (churros, ham etc) and we left feeling more confident to enjoy eating in Madrid. What’s more, I wrote to Margit to ask for some further eating/shopping recommendations and her responses were very quick, detailed and spot on! DO THIS TOUR!!!
Wonderful food in neighborhood establishments

We frequently do food tours while traveling and this was hands down one of the best. Margit is an excellent guide and is engaging, fun and informative. We had a great mix of local foods in wonderful neighborhood settings. I highly recommend this tour!
Not your average food tour

We have been on many food tours, in many countries and this experience with Margit was top notch! Much more than just tasting food. The neighborhood and the food artisans were special and Margit’s knowledge and insight into the local scene was special.
Do not miss this tour

What a wonderful time we had with Amy and Olivier. Their passion and expertise are boundless. This was a wonderful evening of learning about neighbourhoods, family owned business and sampling a variety of foods and wines. Do not miss this tour in Madrid. When I return it will be on my must do list. We made friends with others on the tour and plan on continuing a connection. Amy continued to offer restaurant stops and wine selections as we continued our trip to other cities. All of her suggestions were great and thanks to her we discovered some places we might have missed. Felicitation Amy you have a beautiful business and I wish you every success in the future. Until we meet again.
Unique and amazing food tour!

Margit and her team are fabulous. BOOK THIS TOUR. I’ve traveled extensively and always feel the best way to learn a new city is a good food tour with history and understanding of city layout built in. This tour will allow you to explore an authentic Madrid experience with amazing guides. It is an extremely relatable, educational and delicious experience. This tour has a special way of feeling luxurious and familiar all at the same time. There are a lot of options out there and this is the choice!! If you are researching, look no further.

A big thank you to Margit and her team for a fantastic night with lots of laughs, amazing food, unique insights and recommendations to ease the rest of our travel planning.
