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.

We were thrilled and so happy we decided to take this tour! It was such a wonderful experience. We met our guide - Enrique - along with two other couples so there were just six of us and our guide. First, I must say our guide, Enrique was absolutely phenomenal. He is an expert in wines having studied oenology. He is incredibly knowledgeable and particularly can inform you about the different wine growing regions of Spain and the different wineries where the wines come from. He was amazingly accommodating too. Some of us were gluten free and he made sure we had a selection of gluten free tapas. Yes that's right this is a wine tasting but includes tapas and he very graciously accommodated our allergies. Again all the wines we tasted were excellent. Enrique was very accommodating in the groups preferences for either red or white wines and we tasted several different wines at each tapas bar. Enrique also told us about each of the tapas bars and the history behind each one. Something we would have never gotten from the books. He is very energetic and so personable. I would strongly recommend this tour and if you go you should ask for Enrique's tour. You will be delighted!

This was a great way to end our first day in Madrid. Visiting a few Tapas bars and trying out a lot of the local food was wonderful
