Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Plaza de Santa Ana, Madrid Spain

Meeting Point. Important to be on time. The tour departs on time.

Meet your guide in Santa Ana Square, and set off on a tapas crawl of the city, exploring the best bars that only locals really know of. As you stroll, your guide will chat to you about Madrid, the local cuisine and, of course, the tapas bars that no great evening in Madrid should be without!

Like all Spanish cities, Madrid has its own regional cuisine with an emphasis on use of local ingredients. Perhaps more so than others, Madrid has been influenced by its immigrant population, who’ve brought in flavors and ideas as cosmopolitan as the city itself.

Visit up to four bars on your tour of the town, enjoying wine tastings in each. Sample beautiful Spanish wines made from well-known grapes like tempranillo, malvar, garnacha, and parellada, and enjoy a complimentary tapa (tapas dish) to complement the wine's flavors. Beer and soft drinks (one per bar) are also included should you prefer this to wine! While the dishes vary on each occasion, you can be sure it’s a taste bud tingling treat! Examples of dishes include eggplant with honey, cod brandade, Spanish omelet, Iberian ham and chickpea stew. See the example itinerary for details on the different bars you may visit.

Your tapas tour finishes in a centrally located bar so that you’re well-placed to continue your night out independently.

A must do when in Madrid! Both La Vacanza Travel and the local tour company were exceptionally well organized, very accommodating. We were assisted by both with a late cancellation and rescheduling of this particular tour with little to no hassle!

We just arrived in Madrid and had this tour booked to help us get familiar with Madrid and to recover from jet lag. This was a great idea. Our guide Rodrigo was fantastic and very friendly. He took us to neat places with good food we never would have found on our own - we went back to one of the places for lunch. He sent us an email after the tour listing the places we went to and food we tasted which we found helpful. Recommend this tour.
