Jorge was awesome! Great tour!
The guide Jorge was awesome! Spoke perfect English. Told me history of Madrid and pointed out important landmarks and interesting history of the city in between stops. Very organized. At each stop service was impeccable and food was great. Everyone was friendly and knew Jorge. Great tour and a great day, thank you!

Amazing slice of Madrid
Jul 2020
I was pretty skeptical of food tours before this experience but Jorge was an amazing host. So much rich culture and history paired with every meal. All the food was delicious as well.

He also sent us some recipes and resources which I used to cook my wife a wonderful birthday dinner.

Can't recommend this tour enough.

Dan and I loved our 3-hour Tapas Secret Food Tour of Madrid
Feb 2020
My husband and I arrived in Madrid and found the Secret Tours listing on Trip Advisor. I am so glad that we did! We had a wonderful introduction to a beautiful, fascinating city. Joe was our guide and was excellent. She made the afternoon fun as well as informative. We visited a number of small shops and restaurants and tried a number of delicious foods starting with a marzipan cake and ending with a Spanish tortilla and croquettes. Many stops in between. All delicious. We also sampled a variety of local drinks at each stop. I highly recommend this tour and plan to look for Secret Tours on my future vacations.

Finding mainstream business is easy but we don't settle for easy. We search and go the extra mile to find little gems with the help of Joe, your pleasure is our goal, your kind words the proof we did good, so muchas gracias as we say here (thank you ). We would also like to let you know that while our operations are on standby due to Covid we have created a small virtual tour of Paris keeping the same spirit of fun, passion and information, please come and have a look at the website

Fantastic food tour and local history
Mar 2020 • Couples
We absolutely loved our food tour with Jorge. We were the only people who booked that day but the tour still ran. The food we sampled was delicious and very filling so make sure you're hungry so not to miss out! It was great to get some local history on the tour too and visit some of the oldest businesses in Madrid and the world. Jorge was a fantastic guide - friendly and knowledgable. He also emailed us with info about Madrid, Spain's wine, recipes and recommendations of bars and restaurants which were great recommendations. We have been on a few Secret Food tours around Europe and they have always been great tours to start any city break to get local knowledge. Definitely recommend to anyone who is interested in local cuisines, finding best places to get local food and to learn more about where you are visiting.

Jorge is the best - his food tour is extraordinary!
Feb 2020
Although I had been to Madrid many times over the past several decades, I had never before booked a "Secret Food Tour." After a very bad booking experience with another company doing tours in Madrid ("Tours by Locals"), I decided on this particular tour, based on other reviews which I had read. While the tour itself was phenomenal, it was our tour leader - young, energetic, knowledgable, and friendly Jorge who made the experience extraordinary. I cannot recommend Jorge highly enough!

Despite my numerous prior visits to Madrid, all six stops along the way of our tour were places with which I was not at all familiar. While not necessarily "off the beaten path," they were all establishments frequented more by madrileños thank turistas. The food, drink, and ambiance at each stop were worthy of great praise. Among other treats, you will taste the best tortilla española, fried calamari sandwich, and Iberian ham you have ever had, while sampling several nice wines and other local alcoholic beverages, including nice wines, delicious sangría and the local sidra (A Spanish cider.) You will definitely not come away hungry after participating in this tour with Jorge. He knows all the best spots and all of the best food items to enjoy in each one.

By the way, Jorge is a native "Madrileño¨ and his pride and enthusiasm for Madrid sine through from the beginning to the end of the tour. The historical commentary which he shares along the way is well worth the price of admission, You will definitely learn a lot!

So, take my word for it and go ahead and book this tour. It might seem a bit costly at first, but I will tell you in all honesty, it is well worth it!

Eat. Drink. Learn.
This was an excellent tour with Jorge that hit the sweet spot of what I love about food tours; how local food is part of our deeper understand of life and culture. Jorge provided us excellent choices and examples (from thousands of possible options in Madrid) of how the Spanish approach food as part the fabric of society. The representative dishes were fantastic and expanded the palette. I enjoyed every varied bite and sip, with the Cidre being particularly interesting, the vermouth being eye opening, and the calamari sandwich being delicious.
