Jorge was an excellent guide showing five of us around the vineyard and then inside to see the fermentation tanks and barrels. We then had a pleasant time sampling the two wines produced on site with some tasty chorizo and cheese. 90 mins was just about the right time for us and we ended up making a few purchases at the end. Jorge was very hospitable providing us with all the information we needed as well as local tips regarding restaurants and places for site-seeing. Would certainly recommend.

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.

The tapas tour took us to some traditional gems with interesting history and insights on the way. The flamenco was exceptional with a glass of wine and some some cheese and olives. Our host Agustin was excellent and clearly has an excellent relationship with the tapas bars and the flamenco theatre. Would highly recommend.

It was a beautiful tour of tapas, drinks, Spanish history & Flamenco dancing. Laura was an amazing tour guide- so friendly and full of knowledge and helpful tips about Madrid! It was a group of 11 people and now we're all best friends! Haha I wouod highly reccommend this tour
