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

My husband and I were stuck in traffic(due to an MVA) & late getting there but (thanks to our taxi driver calling) Ismael (and all the nice people... 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.

I would highly recommend this tour while in Madrid. We had so much fun, and had more food and wine than we could possibly finish. Ismael was our tour guide, and he was wonderful. He was so knowledgeable of the city and shared so many fun facts and trivia information with us throughout the tour. He has a great personality... More

Our wonderful friends organized a private tapas and wine tour for us in Madrid as our wedding gift. It was the most perfect way to spend our first night in Spain! Ismael met us at our hotel and guided us through the neighborhoods helping us learn our way and telling us the fascinating history of the plazas and where we... More

I thoroughly enjoyed this tour! All 3 wineries were fantastic and Ismael was a great tour guide. I was hoping that we would have a chance to see the vines also and learn a little about them but aside from that I'm very happy I joined and would recommend it to anyone.

Jaime, of "Gourmet Madrid", organised a really wonderful evening for our small group. Close to the Plaza Mayor he took us to a discrete underground cellar below a well known restaurant where we sat and tasted a selection of remarkable wines. His knowledge of wines is quite incredible and he offered a unique insight into these wines and other wines... More

On July 28, 2014, 8 of us had the pleasure of taking a Wine & Tapas Tour in Madrid, Spain with Ismael as our guide. This walking tour provided us the opportunity to sample food and wine where the Locals eat and drink. Ismael, with Gourmet Madrid, was extremely knowledgeable about local customs, food, and especially wine. His passion for... More

Thank you for your comments. If you do the Historical tour you have pretty good chances of meeting Ismael as the guide. He host most of the tours. Otherwise you have pretty good chances of finding me. And while I finish these lines we are getting ready to have lunch at the bars where our Creative Tapas tour takes place,... More

We booked this tour for guests that were in town and decided to join them. We had a wonderful time! Ismael was a fantastic tour guide. It was a history, wine tasting, scenic tour rolled into one. We went to 3 wineries and enjoyed a delicious tasting of several (generous portions) of tapas (not included in the tour price, but... More
