Fantastic snapshot of Madrid’s history and cuisine
Aug 2021 • Couples
Absolutely fantastic history tour with tapas and dinner mixed in perfectly. We loved Daniel and Octavio and it was great getting to know both of them. Daniel has a deep knowledge of the city, it’s people and it’s food. Do not hesitate to ask many questions to let his knowledge unfold. Daniel has made relationships with each quintessential restaurant which allows you preferential, speedy service at each stop. Each stop in its own right deserves a second visit before you leave to get a proper taste of the menu. This is a truly great experience that I would recommend to anyone newly visiting Madrid! Thank you Daniel!

Amazing Tour
Feb 2020 • Couples
My wife and I booked this tour for a layover we had in Madrid. We wanted to experience the culture, food and history in one experience and this tour delivered! Daniel was a great host/guide and provided details of the historical downtown sights and food/drinks that we had on the tour. It was like a friend taking you out for the night! Such a fun experience and he keeps the groups small so it’s more intimate and not speaking over a megaphone like some other tours we saw. We had wine and beer with multiple tapas at the first two stops along with sangria and traditional liquor shots after dinner of chorizo and potato tortilla and Madrid paella. The food was excellent and the sights were quite incredible along with the history behind them. Highly recommend!

More than a food tour and great dinner
So my wife booked this and it happened to be an ugly rainy night I admit I did not even want to go. That would have been a huge mistake.
The weather held up, the tour was absolutely excellent and besides the great food Daniel was a wealth of information about so many things including a quick visit passed the oldest restaurant in the world, that we promptly booked for that Friday!

Btw the croquettes are my new favorite food that I have made 3 times since I am back!!!

What a wonderful way to spend our first night in Madrid. Pablo was a fabulous guide, a wealth of knowledge and able to answer all of our questions. He was very patient with our very tired children. The tapas tastings and dinner were delicious. A great way to gain some insight in to Madrid history and taste the local cuisine at the same time. Would highly recommend this tour.
