Carmen was a lovely guide, who was very engaging. She clearly has a passion for her country and went to great lengths to give us an authentic experience. The tapas and drinks were all included, and they were amazing!
Food Within Madrid

This tour was one of the best I've experienced. It was really enjoyable to try all the different foods that are known in Spain and Madrid. It was also really nice to go around the city and see different parts that are very important as well. The tour guide was very nice and sweet. She was also very knowledgeable and great with communication since I was running a bit late. I definitely suggest this tour. I wouldn't say I left full but I was definitely satisfied.
Try the real tapas of Madrid!

We had the best time on this food tour! I booked for myself and my parents on a bit of a whim, because we'd never been to Madrid before. We weren't sure what to expect, but it was amazing! You get to try the 'real' tapas spots that aren't super tourist packed, all while learning loads of the rich history and culture of Madrid. You get a drink at each spot, and you definitely get your steps in too!
Full and happy

We loved all the tapas we were served as well as the drinks! The portions were bigger than expected and Carmen did an excellent job of sharing about the food as well as the history of Spain. I would highly recommend - we were full when we finished.
A great food tour
