This tour was fantastic!! We were a small group (9) ranging from 20's - 60's which made it so refreshing. Luis and his wife met us promptly where we were instructed to met, and the next 3 1/2 hours was pure delight. His choices of tapas was wonderful and we visited 2 different tapas bars, one modern and one traditional. The food was delicious and plentiful. Drinks were included at each place. We then ended with a wonderful paella and more tapas and more drinks. The whole evening was a wonderful adventure and Luis and his wife always gave us an understanding and an insight to culture. Please don't miss this one and try to do it your first night in Madrid so that you can return to the tapas bars during the rest of your stay. He even sends an email afterwards telling what you ate and where. WONDERFUL TOUR!

Dear 1027LindaC20,
Thanks for your positive insight about our tour.
We believe mixing modern and traditional tapas bars is the best way to have a taste of Madrid's diverse gastronomy.
We had a really fun and interesting evening with you.
Looking forward to seeing you soon back in Madrid.
Luis Ortega Bofill
PD. Glad the follow up email was useful for your stay in Madrid

We picked Spanish Tapas based on the excellent TripAdvisor reviews, and Luis did not disappoint. He was very flexible in accommodating our family's specific needs (kids who can't drink alcohol, early start time, a vegetarian etc.). Like others here, we spent our first evening in Madrid with Luis, who was kind enough to greet us at our hotel.

Luis took us to 3 or 4 places (don't remember precisely) with a lot of cultural background and history along the way. There was far too much food (and plenty of alcohol) so no worries about leaving hungry, and it was all unique and excellent. We ended the evening with a walk along the old quarter near the Royal Palace etc. for more history and background. While perhaps we could have walked into random tapas bars on our own, we wouldn't have known to pick these specific ones, nor would we have gotten much of the background that made it all such a fulfilling evening.

This experience was one of our family's favorite experiences in Madrid.

This tour was absolutely fantastic. Luis is a friendly, knowledgeable and all-round lovely guy who really made our Madrid experience richer and more enjoyable. His knowledge about Spanish history was excellent and the food was to die for. Excellent value for the amount of food combined with the guided tour. This is a must!!

Dear Emily T,
Thanks for a remarkable review. Maybe a bit too generous for me as a guide. I just try to make my clients feel welcome in Madrid.
So glad you enjoyed our tour.
Have a nice week,

Had a wonderful night out with Luis from Spanish Tapas Madrid the last week of March. We visited four different tapas bars in different areas of the historic center of Madrid. Each stop was unique and amazing. I went back to several places again during my trip. Luis was a great host. Full of knowledge to share. It was the highlight of my stay in Madrid. I can't reccomend him enough. Be sure and do this at the start of your visit. You will get so many great ideas about places to eat, and sites to see!

Based on other reviewers, we spent our first evening in Madrid with Luis. We met him in the Puerta del Sol where he gave us a wonderful introduction to Madrid geography and history. We walked through the Plaza Mayor to the tapas area where we visited three Tapas restaurants - each had a different feel, ambiance and style of food - but all really good. The last stop included a visit by a mariachi band which was great fun. Our teenage daughters enjoyed it too - just the right mix of social fun and history/education.
