Madrid, Spain’s capital, has a distinctly Spanish flair and is a lively city whose grandeur is full of living testimonies, not to mention one of the planet’s greatest collections of art, the Prado Museum. The Palacio Real arranges tours and El Rastro market or the upscale shops in Salamanca provide endless shopping experiences. Small galleries and collectives with contemporary exhibitions by young artists complete Madrid’s cultural panorama.
Madrid’s culinary scene deserves special mention. Its intense social life is reflected in a proliferation of bars and restaurants where people gather to have a glass and share some tapa with colleagues or friends. From old school establishments to cutting edge places, options are infinite. In fact, El Botín is recognized by The Guinness Book of Records as the World’s oldest restaurant, founded in 1725. Rumors say the prestigious artist Goya worked here as a dishwasher during his years as an apprentice of painter. Hemingway mentions it at his novel When the sun also rises.
Madrid is inspired by Southern lifestyle and it’s one of Spaniards preferred tapas heaven. At this private tour, you will take part in a unique itinerary reserved to locals. Explore where Madrileños go in an intimate experience avoiding the sea of tourists traps and getting the real taste of Madrid. Your local English-speaking expert guide will give you some clues to enjoy like a local.
Your English speaking expert guide will meet you at your hotel to start a memorable 3-hour tour to discover the insiders-only secrets in a gourmet tapas tour through the old Madrid while you taste some of the Spanish most famous wine styles.
