Charlie our tour guide, besides taking us to four great restaurants, gave a great oversight into the areas of Madrid we were walking through. Besides the good food and wine it was a great intro to Madrid

A great night out with James, our guide for the night, Good food and wine, interesting facts about Madrid, good company and chat. Gave us the confidence to pop into the tapas bars and order without feeling like absolute beginners! Give it a go.

Charlie, our guide, was great. Great food, drink, and history. My wife and 3 adult children went. 3 of us are vegetarians which was not a problem. Highly recommend.

There were just three of us plus our wonderful guide, Miraim. She did an outstanding job explaining local customs, history of specific places in the center of Madrid and dining tips. We were very glad we opted for this tour.
