ITINERARY
--------------------

First stop:

An authentic Asturian bar, frequented by Spaniards of every age and description. A great place to kick off the evening trying their specialties of cabrales (blue cheese), chorizo and cider, which is poured in a very original way!

Second Stop:

A typical, very traditional "fino" or Sherry bar. This hostelry has changed very little in the last century with standing room at the bar or seating at wooden tables at the back. The bar is complete with the authentic oak sherry casks. "Fino" and "Manzanilla" sherries of various hues and tastes are served by the glass or from bottles filled directly from the kegs. Drinks come with complimentary olives or bread sticks.

Next stop:

This intimate local bar gives you a real taste of Madrid, with bulls' heads on the wall set off by various football shirts, and sawdust on the floor where locals deposit their olive pips before a final clear up at the end of the night. On the bar there is a huge selection of "tapitas" and "pinchos" (similar to canapes). Beside the bar is a model ship full of prawns which are usually provided as your complimentary "tapita" with drinks.

Final stop:

A very popular bar/restaurant serving wonderful "tostadas" and great salads, meats, cheeses and Tapas. This is a fantastic eatery with very good quality, no nonsense food and a great atmosphere with orders being shouted from waiter to waiter to bar to chef!

After this the night is yours! With the largest density of bars and restaurants per square meter in Europe, Madrid is famed for its vibrant nightlife. Even at 4 o'clock in the morning the streets are teeming with revelers, some only part way through their night out, others going to partake of the traditional "chocolate y churros" (gloopy hot chocolate and deep-fried doughnut twists) before bed. Madrid is not a place to sit back and watch the world go by, but rather somewhere you should throw yourself into the melee!

The tapas tour was great- only recommendation would be to suggest people have 20-25 euros per person for drink and food after first bar- was not clear on the description that we would need to pay 20-25 additional euros during tour. The description read as one drink and food per bar would be covered and anything over one drink and food per bar would be individual responsibility

Did this tour the day we arrived from the US and we were afraid we would be tired but it was so much fun that we didn't even think about being tired. It was so very informative. Our guide told us so much about the city itself, not just about the food and wine, but the food and wine were definitely the highlight! He was fantastic.

Thomas our guide was wonderful from start to finish! He really knew the city and the best spots to go for local food and drinks, and he was attentive to our every need. Also, he was very knowledgeable and funny so we were learned a lot and we were entertained. I definitely recommend this tour for anyone who likes to get to know a city, its layout, culture, food, and wine from a local perspective.

We had a lovely group of people to join us in this adventure. If you do not like to try new foods, this might not be the tour for you. We were encouraged to eat the specialty of each restaurant we went into and Ivan made sure we had a variety of types of food from many regions. He also gave us a wonderful walking tour and pointed out interesting facts and offered tips on places to come back to. As stated in other reviews, the first tapas and cider/wine is part of the tour and paid for. The next three are paid for by the participants. Everyone threw in about $25 euro each and this covered everything. For all the food and drink, I think it was very reasonable plus it was excellent company. We happened to go on a Saturday night so the city was full of excitement. We parted ways with most of the group but Ivan walked with my daughter and I along with two other American students and safely got us to a nice club. He had a friend help get us in and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. This little extra gesture made our trip even more special and it’s what got the 5 stars! Thank you!

This is the last stop on the trip, where you get to sit down, which is a perfect way to end the trip as you've been standing and walking until that point.......
