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.
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.
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.
A warm and bustling tavern welcomes you with their open kitchen were you can see how the dishes are prepared
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.

We had a great time on the Madrid Tapas Tour. Our tour guide, Ismeal was great, taking us to local spots with history, great food and delicious drinks. Each stop had unique food and we were walked through the importance of each tapa and history behind these local dishes. Ismeal even provided us details about Madrid as we walked from place to place. This was one of the best parts of our trip and we would do it again. If you love to eat, drink and experience the local culture, this tour is for you!

My partner and I had arrived in Madrid for the first time. We speak little Spanish and were completly out of our depths to know where or what to do when out. We booked this tour as a bit of a treat and were not disappointed! The group was small (9 of us) and we had the best two local guides! We visited 5 places in total and most were out of the way cosy little hubs - right up our ally! The food ordered ranged from general croquettes to the best creme brulee ever! We had a birthday celebration song and the wine which accompanied each restraunt compimented the food. There was a lass wih ietrary restrictions which the guys catered for without question. Highly recommend for any person , single person or in a couple!
