Great experience to 3 different wineries where we learned about the history and met the owners. Lunch was decent but at the end of the day. I would have liked to have lunch prior to the last vineyard and preferred to order off menu.

I initially booked the madrid wine tour and was completely blown away by how incredible It was. We visited three wineries and tasted multiple wines at each winery. Everyone was so knowledgable and passionate. My guide Jaime, knew so much about wine and the area and really cared about our experience. At the end of the tour we had a... More

I booked this event based on two things: 1.the agenda and 2. because the ratings were very high. I was concerned originally because I wondered if I would get my monies worth. We certainly got our monies worth and well beyond. My husband is a serious wine collector, I hoped that the wine pairing would really be meaningful. It was!... More

We visited 5 different tapas bars and sampled some amazing wine and food...more than enough to keep us happy. Ismael shared a wealth of knowledge about the food and wine but also about historic...

Highly recommend taking the tapas and wine tour with Ismael. Excellent host - very knowledgeable with Madrid's history and its food and wine. The tapas were amazing, the wine was amazing - if I could give more stars I would. I will definitely try to go to Madrid again and do a tour with Ismael again. The tour was the... More

We joined Ismael and 4 other couples on the wine and tapas tour on our second night in Madrid. Everything was terrific. We visited 5 venues and enjoyed Ismael's knowledgeable and thoughtful recommendations whilst also meeting some fun travellers. Nothing was too much trouble - food and drink preferences catered for without compromising the real feel for this wonderful Spanish... More

I Signed up for a spanish cooking class with this company because I wanted to learn how to make traditional spanish tapas. Instead, we learned to make tortilla aka spanish omlette, paella, a valencia orange salad, and a delicious poached pear dessert. This was a great way to learn the technique of cooking traditional dishes as well as meeting new... More

We were thrilled to visit these 3 small vineyards during harvest season, we learned and experienced so much! Our guide Ismael also had a wonderful suggestion for a tasting lunch that was quite enjoyable. And best of all he talked to the cafe for us and made sure my husband's meal was gluten free. I would highly recommend this tour.
