A Tapas tour in the Historical part of Madrid will give you a new perspective of the city from an old point of view; because there are two “Madrids”: the one you can’t help but see, and the one you need a local person to show you.
We’d like to invite you to enjoy the experience of “ir de tapas”, as madrileños do.
You will discover hidden spots, even in the very heart of Madrid, each of which has something special to offer, be it a typical dish, a specific type of wine or its atmosphere.
Get into the swing of things: go to a bar, enjoy your wine and your free tapa, order something extra to eat if it catches your fancy and, once you’ve finished, move on to the next venue. It´s as simple as that! Be ready to stand. We do.
Live the experience “irse de tapas” as Madrileños do.
Get ready to stand and drink without haste, tasting a fantastic parade of dishes and wines from various regions of Spain, who have always found their place in the crucible that is Madrid
By the end of the evening you will have discovered the key to wine and gastronomy (some of it is for the fearless only!) through the history of the origin of this dishes. Some are rooted several hundred years ago, as old as the streets we will stroll along. Madrid’s 17th Century by the glass.
First of all we will meet at the meeting point in the Santa Ana Square. (Its important to be on time). We will meet the tour companions, who are like the group of friends with whom to go for tapas and wines.
We will go to the first stop while the guide comments anecdotes about Madrid.
We will go to a place that is as old in its concept as rare these days (more than 80 years running)
The store that conceals a bar, or the bar tucked away at the back of a shop. If you like what you eat or drink in the bar, you can purchase it from the shop. A temple to iberico ham and dozens of types of cheese.
There, advised by the guide, You will choose the drink and will taste 3 or 4 dishes of gastronomy.
We will leave the first tavern on the way to the second stop with a view of the street of the literate quartet while the guide comments about Madrid.
In an old style Castilian tavern, surrounded by painted tiles and huge blackboards showing the names of dozen of wines sold by the glass and the daily tapas available, We’ll acquaint ourselves with the history of tapas.
Once again the guide will advise on the wines and will order for you more rations to continue discovering the gastronomy.
We left once again the bar where we found to continue the Madrid experience going to another. Discovering part of the life of Madrid by the guide hand.
Another tavern found their recipe for success a hundred years ago serving garlic shrimp cooked on the spot and served with vermut or wine. They haven’t changed it a bit in the time being.
Once again the guide will advise you the wine and ask for the food for you.
We leave from our current location to the next, the warmth of the wine and the food will make the walk to the last tavern pleasant and enlivened with curiosities of the guide.
And finally we will finish in a typical “Madrid tavern”. Hidden, cozy and immortal, where full bodied wine is served along with warm dishes and roguish conversation alike. You will try some more dishes and some desserts to finish with a sweet taste.
After leaving the last place the tour has finished. The food and drink will have filled you and you will have completed the whole Madrid tapas experience. The guide will be able to indicate where to go next if you want.
