Superb moment in places little known to tourists! Raul is interesting and very sympathetic. We were a group of 14, good atmosphere. Do not hesitate to come even alone, you will be integrated immediately. From 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. (minimum, you can extend the evening with the group), tasting in 5 different places in the North of Madrid. Little walking to get from place to place. The tastings can all be adapted: with or without alcohol, vegetarian, intolerance or allergy… I totally recommend, thanks again Raul!

Great introduction to tapas. Everything was explained with great detail.,wine and beverages were excellently paired. My only improvement would be to add 1 contemporary tapas stop. The “on your own” last stop was great to chat with the other guests. I rating really between good and excellent. I’m very appreciative that I took this tour.
