Overview

Taste the traditional flavors of Madrid with this small group walking tour. Hop between four tapas bars, sampling signature drinks from wines to vermouth to draft beer alongside specialty snacks. Learn about Madrid’s food culture from a local foodie and follow your guide to the most authentic bars in the city center.

What to Expect

Start your night off in true Madrid style—surrounded by locals as you sip vermouth and nibble on tapas. Your expert guide will let you in on the secret to this local aperitif tradition as you discover what going for tapas really means here in Spain.

Next, head across one of Madrid’s main squares to a popular local tapas bar for a draft beer and delicious bites. You’ll learn the owner’s story and fall in love with the chef’s amazing food.

At the third tapas bar, you’ll taste one of Madrid’s signature tapas, gambas al ajillo—a dish this family-run bar claims to have invented! They’ve been in business since 1906, so we’ll take their word for it! You’ll also be able to order a glass of wine made from the same family’s vineyard in the Toro region.

Finally, you’ll squeeze into one of Madrid’s last remaining traditional tapas institutions– a no-frills place where locals pack in for favorite dishes (including the Madrid specialty– pig ear!). Adventurous or not, there’s something delicious for everyone at this spot.

By the end of the night, you’ll know exactly what it means to do tapas like a local, and why tapas culture can’t exist outside of Spain (so you’ll have to come back!).

Unexpectedly Excellent evening

I had originally thought that this was quite an expensive tour, but as the night developed (and OK, the beer/wine flowed), it turned into a very enjoyable trip around some of the nicest food and drink places in central Madrid. What really made it enjoyable...More

Fun experience but not so good for vegetarians

Our guide Eduardo was charming and knowledgeable. We visited several unique places that I never would have gone to on my own and it was great to wander around Madrid at night. However, while they promise that they can adapt the food for vegetarians, it...More
