Get ready for Spanish food and Spanish history to come to life. As you weave between century-old tapas bars, historic plazas and mystery-filled streets, you’ll learn how the story of Madrid is as much a story of kings and wars as it is one of garlic shrimp and crusty bread. This is a classic tapas crawl in the classic style, which means that no tapas bar is ever too crowded—there’s always room for a few more!

- Discover the real Madrid, including a 45-minute walking history tour of the city center.
- Enjoy classic tapas in the classic style: standing elbow to elbow in bars packed with locals!
- Touch history in century-old tapas bars and taste secret family recipes.
- Learn what the locals drink—and why it's better than sangria!
- Try the foods that shaped Madrid and learn how history has shaped the food we eat today.

Anna was a very helpful...

Nirvanna Lildharrie | Mar 2020

Anna was a very helpful tour guide. She kept everyone's needs and dietary restrictions in mind and was very hospitable. I learned more about Spanish history from this tour than I did from our hop-on-hop-off bus.

I did two tapas tours...

Danielle E | Dec 2019

I did two tapas tours while in Madrid and this was by far the best of the two. Meridith was a great guide! She offered great information about the food and drinks at eat place, helped with recommendations, and gave great history/cultural

Jake, the guide, was fantastic....

David C | Jul 2019

Jake, the guide, was fantastic. Really knowledgeable and engaging. Lots of personalities in the group and he catered for all. The trip was well thought out with enough stops so that four hours of walking is not too tiring. Plenty of food and drinks
