Know More about this tour

Meet your guide in Santa Ana Square, and set off on a tapas crawl of the city, exploring the best bars that only locals really know of. As you stroll, your guide will chat to you about Madrid, the local cuisine and, of course, the tapas bars that no great evening in Madrid should be without!

Like all Spanish cities, Madrid has its own regional cuisine with an emphasis on use of local ingredients. Perhaps more so than others, Madrid has been influenced by its immigrant population, who’ve brought in flavors and ideas as cosmopolitan as the city itself.

Visit up to four bars on your tour of the town, enjoying wine tastings in each. Sample beautiful Spanish wines made from well-known grapes like tempranillo, malvar, garnacha, and parellada, and enjoy a complimentary tapa (tapas dish) to complement the wine's flavors. Beer and soft drinks (one per bar) are also included should you prefer this to wine! While the dishes vary on each occasion, you can be sure it’s a taste bud tingling treat! Examples of dishes include eggplant with honey, cod brandade, Spanish omelet, Iberian ham and chickpea stew. See the example itinerary for details on the different bars you may visit.

Your tapas tour finishes in a centrally located bar so that you’re well-placed to continue your night out independently.

  • Paola was a great guide. We enjoyed the other people we met on the tour and the food we tried was excellent. A great evening.

  • This was an amazing experience, much of it related to our guide Carlos, who was personable, knowledgable and who chose tapas places that were interesting, fun and historic. The food was amazing. We had some dietary issues that Carlos accommodated. This is don't miss trip.

  • Booked for two, my son and myself, not sure he would enjoy it but we both had a really wonderful time! Carlos our tour guide was great - informative and very passionate about what he does. Interesting, fun and diverse group of folks made the entire experience memorable. Highly recommend!

  • This was a good introduction to Tapas. There were only 3 people on this mid morning tour, myself and husband and 1 other gentleman from Ireland, it was perfect because the company was great! I was pleasantly surprised that instead of wine, I could get the taste of the local beer since I am not a wine drinker. Though I must say I learned later on my Spain trip that maybe I am little, because I discovered they make the best Sangria!
    The only place we all 3 agreed we would of passed on was the Sherry Bar. It had a neat character feeling inside of it, but didn't feel welcomed by the locals or bartender who served us.

  • Way more fun than we expected. Really good. Thanks.

  • Amazing Guide! Such a great tour of the beautiful city. Our guide picked great places, plenty of great food, the wine flowed like water, very happy, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

  • fun

  • Carlos did an awesome job picking the wine and tapas and explaining the history of each place we visited. We had such a great time and made some friends along the way!

  • This tour was a lot of fun. We had a great group of fellow travelers with diverse interests. Nacho Ignacio was a great guide although he wanted to get into a heated debate with me about Catalonia's vote for independence. We stopped at four different locations. Each location offered very different selection of tapas and wine. What a great introduction to Madrid's culinary landscape.
    My only criticism involves Viator's directions to the meeting place. We took this tour on our first evening in Madrid and were just starting to become familiar with the city. Fortunately, we left early because we had difficulty finding the meeting place. It would have been helpful if Viator had given a street name, plaza name, and/or directions from the nearest Metro stop.

  • We had a great time, tasting lovely food, in a variety of settings!!
