Full description
Make your way to the heart of Madrid to try the city's most iconic dishes. Wander through the Plaza Mayor, Plaza de la Villa, Calle Mayor, Almudena Cathedral, and the Royal Palace, while partaking in a local gastronomic experience.

Get to know the main products of the Iberian pig firsthand in a traditional tavern where you will sample cuts from an Iberian ham shank, one of Spain's most popular foods. Besides this, you'll try Iberian loin, chorizo, and salchichón as well as the best organic extra virgin olive oil and authentic cured Manchego cheese accompanied by a glass of wine.

Continue on to a typical Madrid-style inn where you can taste a variety of traditional tapas accompanied by wine, beer, or sangria. Your guide will provide information on the preparation and background of each of the tapas, and spice things up with historical anecdotes to provide context. 

Finish your gastronomic tour with something sweet. Try a chocolate churro, a typical dessert from Madrid in one of the city's traditional chocolate shops. From here, you can return to your hotel or continue enjoying the night in Madrid.
