With only 3 days to spend in Madrid, there's no way we could have sampled the Tapas and Wine on offer in this great city to the same degree as we did on this marvellous tour. It did seem expensive when I booked this Tapas tour, but I think it was definitely good value for money. We visited five Tapas... More

On a recent solo trip to Madrid, I signed up for a group tapas tour with Gourmet Madrid. I expected great food, fun wine pairings and some good company, but got so much more. Ismael walked us all around Madrid and took time to share some of the history of the various tapas we tasted as well as the history... More

It was a two hour class with a four course menu that was delicious. The class was small with just 7 in attendance and was primarily in English but for the two of us studying Spanish, they took the time to do it bilingually. We cooked a basic paella and frittata which was good for any level from beginner on... More

After eating so much delicious tapas throughout Madrid, we made our own lunch with "chef" Fernando at "La Opipara" cooking school and it was a great experience that completed last day in the city. We were lucky and were the only "students" for that morning and we learned a lot, plus cooked our very own great paella, spanish omlet and... More

We signed up with the Gormet Madrid Wine and Tapas walking tour, We thought it was a little expensive but we were on vacation and thought what the heck. Boy did we make a good decision. We had Ismal as a guide and we hit 4 places and drank and ate sooooo much. We learned a lot of history, ate... More

I really enjoyed the small group, thoughtful tour and useful information. Ishmael was great. The tapas was unique as were the choice of restaurants. Nothing better than great food and some history while imbibing.

First let me say, Ismael is great! We had such a fun time walking to different bars and restaurants in Madrid, learning about tapas and the culture, and eating the amazing food! The wine was really fantastic too. The places we went were all very different and each had something unique about them. He orders the perfect food and drinks... More

Took the tapas tour with Ismael and had an absolutely wonderful time. He took us to several tapas bars with different types of food and different atmospheres. Enjoyed the food and the conversation and warmly recommend to anyone. סיור טפאס ויין פשוט מעולה שבו ביקרנו עם ישמעאל המדריך בארבעה מקומות עם אוכל ואוירה שונים. נהנינו מהאוכל והשתיה, וגם מההסברים והשיח....

My husband and I did a private Tapas Tour with Ismael on a Saturday night in January in the Retiro area of Madrid. It was brilliant, with lots of amazing food, great wine, great bars and not another tourist in sight. We went to places we would never have found on our own, and the bars were filled with local...

We did this tour in early January with high expectations and they were more than met. Ismael was the tour guide and very quickly becomes a close friend. He has a wonderful insight into the wineries & the history of Madrid and makes a wonderful companion for the afternoon. The wine is delicious, do not miss out on this!!!
