An excellent experience in this small group introduction of the best of Old Madrid. Daniel provided an interesting introduction to the history and food of the city. Do this early in your visit; you’ll be going back to the places visited on your own. Our guide Daniel was great!

Anna was our tour guide and she was such a doll!! We absolutely loved her!! I had written that I was a vegetarian when I booked the tour but when I informed Anna that I was a veg-o when I met her, her eyes got very big & she was so worried that they wouldn't be able to accommodate - but she wrote her boss immediately & every place we stopped went above & beyond to make sure that I had plenty of food & alcohol hahaha! Anna was super informative about Madrid & the food & the history! We stopped at four amazing places - never had to wait & had such FANTASTIC food. I wish I could do this tour all over again!!! Thank you, Anna!!! <3

We had an amazing time with our guide, Pablo! Even though we had already taken some other tours of Madrid, he took us to places we had yet to see, and taught us a lot of history/facts that we did not know. Most importantly, he took us to some really great places to eat! Highly recommend if you are looking for a different type of tour.

I really enjoyed the walk around an area of the city that I was not familiar with. The food was less than stellar. In fact the next night we found better tapas on our own.
