You know there are dishes you can’t leave Madrid without trying, and on this tour you’ll try all of them. From breakfast to lunch, you’ll visit the century-old establishments that are the backbone of the city center—the places that make Madrid, Madrid. And like the capital itself, the bites on this tour are a melting pot of Spanish essentials (melt-in-your-mouth jamón ibérico) and only-in-Madrid classics (a calamari sandwich?!).
- Visit the places we love so much, we had to include them on our first-ever tour (this one!)
- Step inside one of Madrid's oldest kitchens to learn how they make their signature dish.
- Discover the dishes that Madrid is made of, and try our favorite version of each one.
- Eat where the locals eat in Madrid's most central neighborhood.
- Go beyond the tapas bars at specialty eateries, including a gourmet deli!

Must do food tour on your first day in Madrid!
We had a wonderful tour with Yvonne on our first full day in Madrid! We got to try many different local foods throughout our multiple stops in the neighborhoods of Madrid. It was a lot of food and we were full by the time we were done! Standouts include the porra with chocolate (larger than the churro), calamari sandwich, jamon and many different kinds of olives that I had never seen before! Yvonne was very knowledgeable about the area and our group was small and we were all friends by the end of the tour!
This Food Tour was excellent.
Flo was truly amazing. Her knowledge and depth of understanding of the food, histories etc was exceptional.
The places we visited, Food standard and variety was superb.
While Devour Food tours are very good, I personally believe Flo made our experience exceptional.
