Although wine and tapas can be found on nearly ever corner in Madrid, navigating the food scene isn’t always easy. You may not know exactly where to go or what to order, especially if the restaurants are more local and no English is spoken. Thankfully, food and wine tours can come to the rescue – here’s some of the best that Madrid has to offer.

Insider’s Madrid – The Botín Experience tour

Reputable tour group Insider’s Madrid leads groups to Botín, the oldest restaurant in the world according to the Guinness Book of World Records. Visiting the restaurant on your own just won’t do it justice, and the The Botín Experience offers you a chance to explore the restaurant when it’s closed to the public. You’ll discover the history of the restaurant, which dates back to 1725, as well as learning all sorts of interesting information, including insights into Botín’s famous diners (patrons have included Ernest Hemingway and Ava Gardner to name a couple). After a thorough tour and history lesson, you’ll get to explore this famous landmark restaurant, including the wine cellar, and enjoy a six-course meal. Pricing starts at €75 for adults and includes the meal with drinks and a small parting gift.
