We visited three vineyards with Ismael as the tour guide. We had a great time because we learned a lot, we had fun and enjoyed each wine. I recommend this tour to everyone that visits Madrid.

Hello. We are glad you liked the experience and all the wines (and there were ten of them between whites and reds!) Considering how many people are coming from Puerto Rico this year, the local grape Malvar has to be buzzing already back at your country. We hope to see you again.

Hello, Thank you very much for your comments, they are very important for us. Only the cave was not accesible for wheelchairs but that is because it is over 600 years old. Despite the cave that winery it is a must visit in Madrid wine region since they still ferment the wine in clay vats older than 100 years. Best... More

This was truly an amazing experience. I could go on and on about the thoughtfulness that the company goes through in choosing such amazing and diverse wineries that truly speak to the beauty of the land and hard work of the ones that love it. The destinations are intimate and unique established gems. I would also like to commend our... More

This was my first visit to Madrid with my oldest daughter. It was her idea to take a wine tour and I was so glad we did. It was a wonderful experience and so much fun to visit the various wineries.

Today my mother and I throughly enjoyed the wine tour which took place right outside Madrid and spanned three very unique vineyards. It was solid day trip but everything was marvelous! All of the wines were very good quality and because they are local they are at very reasonable prices. I cannot speak highly enough about pur fabulous tour guide... More

Highly recommend the wine tour by Gourmet Madrid. We visited 3 wineries and tasted 10 different types of red and white wines. Each winery was historical and the tour was given with the owners. They were welcoming and very informative. Did you know that some still use the large clay batts from over a hundred years ago? Go see it!... More

Hello Ruby, Thank you very much for your comments. We are glad to hear that you had fun in the tour. Just to clarify one thing in case somebody reads your review: Madrid´s hilly wine region is the threshold of La Mancha geographical region.

The choice of tapas bars was perfect as they were places that we would not have gone to.The choices were varied and my wife and I had a fabulous night. Only... More

Ismail was our guide for the evening, the instructions on the meeting place are clear and it is easy to find. His knowledge was first class and his choice of restaurants and wines was of equal quality.

We are on our first visit to Spain and the Gourmet Madrid tapas tour was wonderful for learning more about Madrid and it's food, and having a great time doing it. Ismael introduced us to treats we would never have chosen on our own, such as Spanish vermouth. I enjoyed this more than the tapas we did on our own,... More
