What to Expect on Your Tour

Discover Madrid like a local as you immerse yourself in the daily life of the beautiful Huertas neighborhood. Also known as Madrid’s Literary Quarter, this is one of the city’s most historic local neighborhoods and a place where Spain’s literary idols have lived (and eaten!) for centuries. You’ll fall in love with its tree-lined cobblestone streets, gorgeous architecture, and small family-run boutiques and eateries— which is where you’re headed on this fantastic food tour!

Your expert guide will lead you to quaint food shops, quirky tapas bars, and a locals-only market. You’ll taste the city’s best churros and chocolate from an off-the-beaten path cafe, Spain’s famous Iberian ham from Jesús our passionate ham slicer, amazing Spanish wines and cheeses from a neighborhood deli and wonderful tapas and vermouth from the most surreal tapas bar in Madrid. In short, you’ll discover the foods and flavors that are a true expression of a real Madrid neighborhood.*

Along the way you’ll meet the hardworking local people behind Madrid’s great food and learn their stories. Plus your guide will point out the fascinating sights that are hidden in plain view throughout this famous neighborhood.

How much food is included? Enough delicious tastes for a light breakfast and full lunch.

And as with all Devour Madrid tours, you’ll get our Devouring Madrid mini-guide, which is packed with all our favourite places to eat and drink in the city, so you’ll be eating well for the rest of your stay!

So bring your appetite for a morning of off-the-beaten-path foodie bliss!

Why choose this tour?

  • Experience Madrid like a local! You’ll spend the morning exploring the local, family-run food scene in a small Madrid neighborhood. You’ll visit people who are extremely proud of what they do– and you’ll taste how that love and passion shines through in their delicious food.
  • All-inclusive pricing Your tour includes all food and drink, an exprt English-speaking guide and 21% Spanish sales tax. The food offered is enough for breakfast and lunch and also includes a tasting of four traditional alcoholic beverages (wine, cava, vermouth)– though non-alcoholic options are also available. The tour also includes our Devouring Madrid printed guide to the best things to eat in Madrid.
  • 9+ food stops! As complete as a food tour can get, this 3.5 hour experience includes stops at nine (or more!) local food businesses. It’s perfect if you’re eager to learn more about Madrid’s food culture as a whole (from a traditional Madrid breakfast, to shopping at the local market, to where to get your sugar fix).
  • Taste 4 Spanish wines: We wouldn’t call this tour a wine tasting– but you sure do taste Spanish wines! You’ll taste red, white, cava and vermouth on this tour and learn all about how the locals enjoy these delicious drinks.
  • Beyond the food In addition to the wonderful tastes on the tour, you’ll also learn lots about the history of Madrid’s beautiful Literary Quarter as well as gaining valuable local insight into Madrid’s culture and traditions.
  • It’s so much fun! There’s really no better way to see a city– the sights, the bites and the culture, this tour has it all!
