Daniel was a superb guide. Great sense of humor and informative without overdoing it. The foods and wines were great and gave a real “flavor” of Madrid.

If you’re looking for a look at Spain’s food story start here. Our guide Pablo was knowledgeable and a native. It’s a good thing there was some walking involved or I would not have been able to enjoy the many tastes of Spain we enjoyed. The evening ended with my first paella. Highly recommended.
