Madrid is famous for its culinary delights. Of course, everyone has heard of tapas, those famous bite-size portions of everything. But there is a lot more than that on Madrid’s culinary scene!
Meet your private, experienced and passionate foodie guide and let them take you on an entertaining experience that will give you some insight into the culinary treasures of Spain.
Follow your guide through the streets of Madrid in search for those traditional delicacies.
There will be 4 stops in total, all within walking distance from one another. These stops include a specialized olive oil boutique, where you will be able to taste the difference between normal olive oil and the excellent “extra virgin” oil, a cheese and ham from Castilla y Leon tasting session, as well as 4 delicious tapas in the food court of a high end market.
You will end this tour with the all too famous chocolate con churros or a delicious ice cream (depending on the time of the year). Drinks are included at every stop: wine for adults and soft drinks for the children.
This 3-hour tour is the best way to explore the different riches of Madrid’s culinary tradition, and still keep the children happy, interested and curious!

Is this a private activity?

It sure is. Your family members will be the only ones participating in this food tour. There will be other people (regular clients) in the boutiques and restaurants you will visit as they are not made private for your family.

Are the parents staying with the children or separated?

We always promote a family-bonding moment, where parents and children enjoy an activity together as a family. So, parents and children will not be separated. However, if you choose to send your children on this activity alone, it is possible, provided that a babysitter accompanies the children regardless of the age, for insurance purposes (our guides are not responsible for the children).

How much food will we be tasting?

The quantity of food tasted would be equivalent to a full (normal sized) meal for adults.

Will we see a market?

Yes. As a matter of fact, the restaurant where you will taste the tapas is located inside the market. You will have plenty of time to walk around the market before (or after) tasting the delicious tapas.

Can we choose another area for our food tour?

No. we have designed this one as it really fits the families, and it is less crowded than a food tour organized at the market of San Miguel.

Is it suitable for kids under 6 years old?

Kids under 6 years old are welcome to join. They might not like all of the food tasted, but they can at least try.

Is the food gluten free / can you cope with food allergies or other intolerances?

We can adapt to any food allergy or intolerance as long as this information has been given to us prior to the day of the activity. If information is given during the tour, your guide will do their best to adapt to your needs and tastes.

Can you make kosher food tastings (or any other special meals)?

Yes we can. Here too, please give this information ahead of time so the adapted the tour. Depending on the price of the meals in the area, extra costs may be added.

What if it rains?

You will spend most of the time in the restaurants and in the market, so if it rains, the tour will be maintained.
