Visit the first tapas market in the country and learn all about the importance of Spanish market culture

Get an introduction to the traditions of the Spanish aperitivo with a traditional vermouth and olive tasting. Taste traditional recipes with a modern twist in a tiny gourmet tapas bar owned by two dedicated sommeliers. Discover the oldest parts of Madrid and stop at some of our favourite heritage taverns to try the house dish in each of them, including the best potato croquettes in the entire city! Stroll around the trendy neighbourhood of La Latina and soak up the historic vibes and breathtaking architecture of the old city centre too. Numbers are limited to 12 on this small-group tour, ensuring personalised attention from the guide.
