You’ll join one of our local Madrid hosts to enjoy what is obviously the best part of the day - the part where you do tapas (it isn’t something you go for, it’s something you do). The question isn’t if you do it (since the answer is always yes), it’s where to go.

You’re in luck since your host can’t wait to share with you some of their favorite tapas places. You know, the ones that are more secret than anything you’d find in a guidebook. All you need to do is let us know your vibe, and we’ll do the rest.

Do you see yourself in a sleek bar in upmarket Salamanca, an old-school vermut bar in down-to-earth, humble and diverse Lavapiés, a quirky tapas bar in hip(ster) Malasaña or a market like Mercado de San Anton, which has three floors of gastro bliss, aka tiny bars where you can sample pinchos (tapas held together with a small stick)?

Would you like to drink an ice-cold caña (the local unit of beer), sip Spanish vermouth or try a regional wine? Do you want to feast on garlicky grilled prawns, the finest slivers of Iberian ham, deep-fried croquetas or a more global take on traditional tapas?

You see, the choice is dizzying, so having a local to share the experience with will be like having a fairy godmother by your side. Flit between three or four bars for a varied experience or settle in at one you like the sound of; we just wish we could join you!

Great evening tour with Jorge

I had a fantastic evening experience in Madrid with Jorge. Starting with a chilled walk through some of the parks and ending with food and drinks in one of the more alternative neighbourhoods, I managed to see the city as only a local would. Highly recommended!

City tour with Silvia

My mother and I toured with Silvia on our first day in Madrid. She is very friendly, full of energy and provided us with her inside view of 3 neighborhoods (Salamanca, Malasaña and Centro). She took us off the touristy streets and it made the tour more personable. She also took us to one of her favorite lunch spots...La Pescaderia. It was delicious and very reasonable. If you’re looking for an overview of the city, I highly suggest requesting Silvia!

Wonderful company with Silvia

My son, his wife and I had a WONDERFUL evening with Silvia. We walked through her neighborhood, visited some tapas bars, went to a gallery, and stopped at a tea and spice shop. The highlight of our evening was sharing wine and dinner at one of her favorite restaurants. We could have talked for hours, but time was running very late and she had an early flight in the morning. A FANTASTIC TIME WITH SILVIA!

Uma Visão Geral de Madri

Minha experiência começou alguns dias antes da data marcada para o tour, sendo que Nicola, que foi responsável por me guiar no tour, me enviou emails me explicando em detalhes como iriamos nos encontrar, e uma sugestão de intinerário. Na hora marcada, começamos o passeio por Madri. Tive a oportunidade de conhecer vários detalhes históricos dos principais edifícios e ruas da cidade. Além disso, Nicola me levou a dois mercados para que eu pudesse experimentar um pouco da culinária local... o sanduiche ramón é imperdível, como também as croquetas!!! Para finalizar, uma passada por alguns dos museus da cidade, com destaque para o Museu do Prado. Bem, foi um dia agradabilíssimo, com o encontro de mais um amigo. se recomendo, claro, com certeza!
