Know More about this tour

Treat your taste buds with 10 amazing local tastings and enjoy eating like a local. Discover the citys history through its authentic bites and explore its hip areas.

Start your private food journey at Mercado San Anton, a local market located in the lively neighborhood of Chueca. The market is popular among locals and its full of stalls selling top quality products. After strolling through the local market, it's time to kick-start your appetite. Try the first tastings: a sobrasada con picos a raw cured sausage plus an authentic croqueta. Move on to the Salmorejo, a traditional tomato dish from the South of Spain, and enjoy the view over the market.

In this hip area, a lot of cool places are popping up next to authentic local bars, creating a unique vibe. Along the way, enter a few places, hand-picked by your private guide just for you. Stand just like the locals do while enjoying some tapas, a traditional cheese from La Mancha region and the delicious Spanish empanada. Your local guide will tell you everything about the culinary aspects of Madrid and the history behind the local family-run bars.

Make room for something sweet. Have a rosquilla at Horno San Onofre, an old pastry which has its own old traditional recipes. Rosquilla is a Spanish pastry that became an icon of the sweet gastronomy of the city. Lets not forget about the yummy Spanish tortilla, an omelette made with eggs and potatoes.

Cap off your experience at a cool hip bar where the passion for bikes is mixed with the passion for good drinks. Impress your taste buds with a tasting of Artesano Vermut while enjoying the cozy atmosphere. Its time to say goodbye to your local guide but not before you ask recommendations for your next days.

    We totally enjoyed our tour. Julian was a delightful host with well spoken English, & historical facts. We enjoyed all the food, drinks, city landmarks and enjoyed the personable moments. Highly recommended!

    We, a family of 4 with teenagers, really enjoyed the tour. Our plesant host guided knowledgeably in excellent English. A great mix of historical facts, genuine food and drinks, city landmarks and sociable moments. This was a highlight of our stay, warmly recommended!

    Marianissa was a great guide! The 4 of us spent the evening bar-hopping off the beaten path in local hangouts, sampling favorite local beverages and delicacies. Marianissa knew the proprietors of each establishment and even got us an exclusive back room table during rush hour at a historic tavern where we could rest our weary feet after we'd spent the earlier part of the day in airports! In excellent English, she gave us a great mini-course in local customs and advice on how better to enjoy our stay. What a great introduction to Madrid. Certainly one of the top 3 experiences of our 4 day visit! And that list includes ta fantastic tour of the Prado.!

    Our guide knew personally many of the owners of the sites we visited and knew which sites were less touristy

  • 03-Oct-2022

    While the food was good and typical bar/snack food, the guide was uninspiring. She was vegan and had no passion for the food or drink. It was as if she was given a script of where to go but had no personal connection with the bars or restaurants we visited. Really a food tour needs a foodie!

    Our group of four truly enjoyed the food tour with Julian. He gave us history, some cooking tips, and an understanding of the neighborhoods. It was our last night in Madrid and left with a tremendous positive feeling about the people and the City.

    The food we ate was good, however the four of us were not given our own tapas. We were required to share one plate per 4 people. Our tour Guide was very pleasant, however she didn’t eat the kind of food she was recommending. It was not the same tour experience I have had in the past.

    This was a total waste of time!! And in all seriousness a joke!!! I have never ever been more disappointed in some time in my life. We went to run down bars!!! No restaurants!!! We got the cheapest food and the worst alcohol. It’s not even 10 tasting like it described. We went to 4 places that’s it and it was the worst food possible or may I say the cheapest!!. It didn’t take 3 hours I don’t even think it took one full hour. For some reason it’s not letting me upload any pictures!! Please don’t waste your time or money!! You can do a better taste on your own. I was laughing at the end cuz I thought it was a joke. When I say you are taking to a bar I’m talking the cheapest nastiest bar possible cold food sample and hot fish. Never would I ever book here again!!

    We really enjoyed the history behind the tastings. Love the culture and the food/drinks. Patricia was so patient and informative.

    We got to eat at places mostly locals know about and try foods we would not have without the recommendations of our guide. Maria gave us lots of information about the foods were we eating. We were tired from traveling all day so be might have been a little more jovial if we were more lively.
