It was my first food tour in Spain and I loved it. The drinks and tapas tasting was very nice with variety and unique combinations. It was also very interesting to meet people from other parts of the world. Our guide taught us a lot about the neighborhoods, the culture and the history of the food and drinks, he was also very attentive. I really appreciated your kindness. Afterwards we were able to enjoy a great traditional flamenco show. Thanks for this tour. I highly recommend this experience.

Una de las mejores experiencias que tuve durante mi viaje a Madrid sin dudarlo. Quería probar la comida más tradicional de la ciudad y con este tour pude descubrirlo de la mejor manera y con el mejor guía posible, que en todo momento estuvo ahi para darnos la mejor información sobre las tapas y sobre otras curiosidades de Madrid. Después el espectáculo de flamenco fue tal y como me esperaba, algo espectacular. Me parece impresionante el arte que se desprende en un escenario flamenco. Increíble!

Que compañía más agradable teníamos en el tour, fue una experiencia increíble gracias a la amabilidad, dedicación y calidad de las explicaciones de nuestra guía Lisa, una persona encantadora.
