We had a fabulous experience in Madrid with our guide Charlie. When we arrived in Madrid we had no idea where to go for tapas and drinks.

Tapas tour

The tapas tour was great- only recommendation would be to suggest people have 20-25 euros per person for drink and food after first bar- was not clear on the description that we would need to pay 20-25 additional euros during tour. The description read as one drink and food per bar would be covered and anything over one drink and food per bar would be individual responsibility
icon Response from Host , Dec 2019
So glad you enjoyed it and thank you for taking the time to write a review. Just to clarify for other clients: the tour fee includes the drinks and tapas in the first bar. Thereafter clients pay for what they eat and drink so they can decide whether to splash out or not. We calculate that visitors will spend a total of c.EUR30-35pp on food and drink on the night and will have eaten and drunk to their stomach´s content. This is likely to work out cheaper as part of a group. Do come back again or try us out in Seville
