The perfect taste experience.

A very thoughtful and perfect tour. The amount of food was not too much or little just right. I will recommend this tour in Madrid as well as other cities in my future travels.

I enjoyed walking around the city, learning about that part of the city and the food. The historical perspective was really fun. Mostly I enjoyed the trip to the Mercado de Anton Martin.

A must-do for first-time visitors to Madrid (If you're American, you'll be lucky to have Anna!)
We had Anna for our tour, and she was a perfect guide for us because she was a transplanted American, but living in Spain for several years, so she was very experienced with Spanish cuisine and culture. I wouldn't say we loved everything we tried (much of it was great), but that's not the point. We were happy to try new things, learn about the foods' origins, visit so many unique and beautiful sites, and I even found a few olives I actually enjoyed! Overall, a great experience and highly recommended for new travelers to Madrid.

Don’t miss this food tour in Madrid!
I ended up with a solo tour with Carolyn and she was fantastic! We visited small family run places that were all yummy and different. Carolyn provided a lot of great Spanish history and tips for the rest of my stay in Madrid. I highly recommend doing this tour when you arrive in Madrid!

Hola, Thank you for taking the time to write this great review for Yvonne´s Ultimate Spanish Cuisine Tour in Madrid. It sounds like your teenage sons have become Spanish food enthusiasts in just one morning and we are thrilled to know that they discovered local bites through Devour Tours. Have you thought about taking them on another culinary tour? We offer a fun ¨night out¨ on our award-winning Tapas, Taverns and History Tour that runs every evening with local experts like Yvonne. See you again soon,

Hi Jane, I had such a wonderful time showing you around the city of Madrid. There is so much history and tradition tied to this city and some of it can be experienced through the foods we tried. I hope you got some great gifts (maybe for yourself!) at the local, independently-owned stores and artisan workshops in the city. I´m glad that you loved the authentic restaurants serving local food in the center of Madrid (a tricky place to eat, actually!). And I hope you´ll visit us again on your next trip. See you in Paris? Or maybe Lisbon? Safe travels,

A great way to start your Madrid food adventure.
We recommend this tour early in your visit to Madrid. It will enhance your dining experience throughout your stay. Cait and Devour tours are the best. We love the small group tours and socializing with fellow travelers.

Hi there, Thank you for writing this beautiful review of the tour you took with me in Madrid. It was great to show you the traditions of Madrid´s long culinary history and for me, the best part is that you were prepared to devour your way around Madrid afterwards. Keep staying curious and visiting new places wherever your travels take you. We´d love to show you some authentic foods in Lisbon, San Sebastian or Seville on your next trip to the Iberian Peninsula. Safe travels,

A Must Do Tour!

Cait was a perfect host for this wonderful tour. She was fun and full of interesting stories and information. The food, of course, was amazing and the optional drinks package really enhanced the experience. I retraced my steps a few days later when my daughter visited and she was very impressed ;) This was my eighth Devour Tour and they never disappoint.

Hola! Thank you so much for writing this lovely review for the tour you took with me in Madrid. I´m so glad that you got to have the full experience of visiting our incredible vendors who share their authentic recipes and customs with us. And of course, you were able to share those experiences firsthand again with your daughter. Visiting local markets and restaurants can completely enhance your experience and really help inform the rest of your trip. Thank you for being a Devourer through and through!
