The focal point of Spanish cuisine has always been its fresh and local production, resulting in each region of the country its own assortment of toothsome specialties. To sample the nation’s vast array of flavors, you need to do what the locals call tapear – going for tapas.
On this 2-hour tapas tour in Madrid, tapeando is precisely what you’ll be doing – in the company of an expert guide. The experience begins with your guide telling you everything about the origin and history of tapas in the various regions of Spain. They will take you back in time and explain how King Alfonso had the brilliant idea of forcing bars to give away small portions of food with every drink. Learn the traditional art of pouring cider, the secrets behind the most popular cocktails of “La feria de Abril” in Seville, and much more!
Tapas include classic homemade paella, marinated ﬁsh, patatas bravas, jamón Ibérico, cheese, and pan con tomate. While you taste these dishes, sip on beer, Rebujito cocktails, and/or Asturian cider. One round of tapas tasting at each bar is free, but you can pay for anything else you would like to enjoy separately.
The guides will gladly recommend further tapas places to try while you are in Madrid. You will learn the secrets of tapas and Spanish culture, and by the end of the night, you will have met some new foodie friends, learned how to explore and order tapas for yourself during the rest of your vacation, and discovered some of the oldest and most traditional districts of Madrid.
