I can't speak highly enough of this tour. We knew nothing about ordering or eating tapas so we were delighted to be able to try a number of different tapas, each equally delicious at three different bars. We also had front row seats at a small, intimate flamenco venue and saw a 'real' flamenco show, full of passion and drama. This was topped off with a fantastic meal. Joy was amazing. She got a disparate group of people to talk and laugh, and share a memorable evening. I will definitely use Devour tours again on another trip to Spain.
This was the best way for us to get acquainted with the city. Our guide, Joy, was simply amazing. Her passion for her city really shows and is infectious! She had us falling in love with Madrid! Throughout the tour, we enjoyed delicious tapas, vermouth and wine while learning the rich history of Madrid. The flamenco show was an emotional and highly enjoyable experience and something everyone should do (in my opinion). We'll definitely book again with Devour!
We took the Tapas and Flamenco tour with Luke Darracott. The tour was simply perfect. From Luke who was a super friendly, funny and helpful guide, through a spectacular food tour that included some of the best dishes we've had in Madrid, and up to the awesome flamenco show. We enjoyed immensely; don't miss on that tour!
What to Expect on Your Tour
Too many visitors sign up for a flamenco show without really knowing what they’re about to watch, or go out for tapas without knowing the art of navigating Madrid’s tapas bars like a local. Join us for a night of flamenco and tapas, where an expert guide will lead you around Madrid’s tapas bars, teaching you how to do tapas like a local and walking you through the history of this beautifully tragic dance. In between delicious bites, you’ll learn where flamenco came from and why Madrid’s considered the capital of it all! And then, after a heart-stopping one-hour show, you’ll then head to a nearby restaurant to sit down to a hot-off-the-grill tapas feast—the perfect moment to discuss what you’ve just seen!
Start your night out with the classic Madrid aperitif—a glass of sweet vermouth straight from the tap! You’ll pair it with a classic tapa found all over the city—tostas, or open-faced toasts topped with all sorts of tasty ingredients.
On our way to the next tapas joint, your expert guide will show you why flamenco is so much more than the dance as you pop into a traditional flamenco guitar shop.
Next up, you’ll sit down to enjoy a delicious plate of cured meats and cheeses while your guide prepares you for the heart-stopping show you’re about to see!
Then it’s time for the show! Get ready for an hour of raw emotion paired with traditional dancing, and masterful guitar playing and singing.
To finish up the night, you’re off to experience a true farm-to-table dinner in a restaurant that sources its vegetables from its own garden, and other products from handpicked, gourmet suppliers! You’ll enjoy hot-off-the-grill dishes like fried potatoes topped with a homemade spicy brava sauce and Spanish ham, and lightly fried cod fish with a honey ali-oli! It’s the perfect moment to share great food and wine while going over what you’ve all just witnessed!
And as with all Devour Madrid tours, your guide will give you a copy of our Devouring Madrid guide, which is packed with all our favorite places to eat and drink in the city! So put down your guidebook and get ready to experience Madrid like a local!
*Please note that this tour shares two stops with our Huertas Neighborhood Food & Market Tour. It is not recommended to take both of the tours during your stay in Madrid.
