Great way to know the city and the culture!

Mario is a very good guide - born in the city, he knows A LOT about it, about the food, culture and so on. The tour was very well structured, you could actually enjoy everything at a good pace, without the need to rush anywhere. The only reason why I didn't put 5 stars is that out of the 4 places we visited 3 were absolutely great, while one of them could have been much better. But definitely recommended - great way to spend an afternoon (ideally at the beginning of your stay in Madrid - as you can get a lot of useful tips for the upcoming days!).

had louis, great guy with all the good spots in tow, awesome time

we had louis as a guide. he was really really great. he knew a lot about the good spots and had a good relationship with all the places. we were received with smiles and well wishes everywhere. we went to four places. a small tapa bar, then a place with great spanish omelete, then an awesome place that served the best mushrooms we had on our entire trip, and ended with a fantastic place that had really really good iberican ham. one of the workers in the last place, ramon, was a joy. i would really really recommend the last three places. i think he says he rotates between 12 places.

A fantastic experience

Our guide, Luis, was a very pleasant person. It was like being with a friend. We learned a lot, not only about tapas, but also about Spanish history and society.
