What to Expect on Your Tour

Join us for a mouth-watering evening of Madrid’s most delicious tapas and Spain’s incredible wines across four of the capital’s best tucked-away family-run tapas bars! Cool draft vermouth, freshly-sliced jamón paired with sparkling cava and hot-off-the-grill tapas washed down with full-bodied reds – you’ll taste it all, learn a lot and be led by a passionate English-speaking guide on this 3-hour Madrid tapas and wine tasting tour!

With hundreds of 5-star rave reviews and rated #1 on TripAdvisor, we offer Madrid’s best tapas tours!

The evening begins in true Madrid style – surrounded by locals in an historic, atmospheric tavern sipping vermouth and nibbling on tapas. Your guide will let you in on the secret of this local aperitif tradition and  give you essential tips for doing tapas like a local.

Next, you’ll be whisked off to a hidden family-run deli and tapas bar where Spain’s greatest delicacy – yes, jamón! – will be sliced before your eyes by a master carver. As the slices of acorn-fed black-hoof jamón melt on your tongue you’ll wash it back with (and learn all about) the perfect pairing – Spanish sparkling cava.

But the night is young! Next you’ll sip white and rosé wine and taste the house specialties at a gorgeous 19th century tavern run by a mother and her two sons. And finally you’ll head to another iconic tavern run by a family who makes their own wine. Over plates of sizzling prawns and juicy grilled tapas your guide will lead a fun and informative tasting of the family’s four red wines. You’ll discover Spain’s most famous grape, decode the complex system of Spanish wine labeling and learn what makes Spain (the world’s largest vineyard!) the sleeping giant of the wine world. And of course, you’ll finish up your experience with something sinfully sweet.*

Whether you’re a wine connoisseur or just love to sip, you’ll learn tips for enjoying (and ordering!) tapas and wine in Spain and plenty of fun facts that’ll help you enjoy wine once you get home.

How much food and wine is included? Enough tapas for a hearty dinner paired with 8 Spanish wines (about 6 full glasses in total – enough to be glowing by the end!).

As with all Devour Madrid food tours, you’ll be led by one of our small team of expert, passionate English-speaking guides. And you’ll get a copy of our Devouring Madrid guide, which is packed with all our favorite places to eat and drink in the city. Plus, exclusive to this tour, you’ll also get our Madrid Wine Guide, which will ensure the great wine flows freely for the rest of your stay.

Join us for the most delicious, fun and informative tapas and wine tour in Madrid!

Please Note: In order to give a true taste of Madrid’s tapas culture, this tour visits four authentic, busy tapas bars. The first three bars offer standing room only (as is tradition in Madrid when tapas-hopping). There is seating at the last bar. Also, this tour is open to guests aged 18 years and up. Finally, the tour shares one stop with our Evening Tapas & Flamenco Tour and one stop with our Ultimate Spanish Cuisine Tour.

*Because we work with small, family-run establishments, stops and tastes may change depending on availability.
