We did this Tapas tour on our first night in Madrid. The tour allowed us not only to get a feel for the city, but also understand the history and cultural origins of the city and its food. Carmen was an excellent guide. She was very knowledgeable about the city, and made us feel like a local by picking places that were delicious and frequented by locals. She was very funny too. If you’re in Madrid, you definitely SHOULD take this tour!!
