Had a very good tour with Andres. Plenty of food and great wine, So much fun walking the back streets and got to discover some interesting little places. Highly recommend it. It makes a great first night in Madrid.

When I read of a tour with universally great reviews, I am instantly sceptical. However this was the highlight of my stay in Madrid. Andrés (the owner and guide) has an obvious passion for good food and wine and does not mind sharing it. He took us to three bars and restaurants, ranging from homely to trendy for a selection...

Very valuable tour for anyone looking for a special food or wine. Andres gave tips for absolutely top notch wine, which is really affordable (still difficult for me to believe). Not to mention couple of places with pork of a special kind and top notch Spanish vermouth. Bottom line - Andres is a real gourmet and generous with advice.

Andres was an outstanding guide and host. His passion for the history of Madrid was evident. As is his passion for wine and great tapas pairings. As others have said, this is not by a longshot your run of the mill tapas walking tour. The tour starts out rather simply but continues to build and the wines, vermouth & tapas... More

Andres leads an incredible tour. This is far more than just a tapas tour - history of Madrid intermingled with walking tour of old Madrid; fabulous tapas bar locations, excellent choices and variations of wine and vermouth coupled with very interesting foods. Andres is rich in his knowledge of Madrid, the foods, the wines etc. and he is terrific company.... More

My husband and I were visiting Madrid for the first time and having looked for some inspiration on Trip Advisor on things to do I came across this Tour and I am so glad I did. Andre was our Host & Guide for the evening and made the walk very interesting as he really does know so much about the... More

Andres is an excellent guide, passionate about food and wine and knows how to create the pleasant atmosphere that makes this tour special. We were a group of 8, from diffrent backgrounds, nationalities, and ages, but by the end of the evening we enjoyed each others company so much that we continued celebrating the food and drinks this city has...

Our group of Spaniards and USA folks had an excellent time with Andres! My friends from Madrid said they learned things about places and foods that they didn't know about Madrid. The tapas and wine pairings were excellent. We were extremely satisfied and my Madrid friends will be calling Andres again! Bravo for the Old Madrid Tapas Tour!

Spent the first night in Madrid joining Andres on a gastronomic adventure. He introduced our small group of 10 to some of the highlights in the old section of Madrid and continued on to give us a memorable trip of 4 taverns/ restaurants. The food was top notch and wines were varied and exquisite. He really knows his stuff. In... More

Spent my second night in Madrid on this tour. Fun group, great host and lots of interesting food. Loved hearing the stories behind the traditions and going to places I wouldn't have found on my own. Andres was a great host and made sure we all were comfortable and happy. Met great people and found out that sherry is a... More
