Gourmet Insider's Madrid Food Tour

“Food is everything we are. It’s an extension of nationalist feeling, ethnic feeling, your personal history, your province, your region, your tribe, your grandma. It’s inseparable from those from the get-go.” -the great, late Anthony Bourdain

The Gourmet Madrid Food Tour is three hours of foodie heaven. You will meet fascinating Madrileñan experts from the culinary world. It features complete tastings of the highest quality Spanish products: understand and distinguish the difference between average and supreme Iberian ham, extra virgin olive oil, fresh and aged Spanish cheeses, herbs and spices (from a gourmet herb shop that supplies to some of Spain’s greatest chefs and Michelin star restaurants), artisanal chocolate and more.

Pass through two of Madrid’s most characteristic neighborhoods to discover the cultural place food has within Spanish society. Our Gourmet Madrid Food Tour is a truly interactive tour for foodies to taste from our favorite gourmet shops, a local market and, of course, a historical castizo taberna, a typical Madrid tavern, to try some of the best Spanish tortilla.

One of the highlights during our stay in Spain

“We did both Gourmet Food Tour and the Botin Experience. We had Heather as our tour guide for the Food Tour, it was amazing! Our family loves to eat and through this tour, we didn’t just try the different kinds of Spanish food, we also learned a lot about the Spanish cultures, Heather was very friendly, informative and helpful, we had a wonderful time with her! Also, we are so glad that we had Phil as our tour guide for the Botin Experience, he’s very experienced and friendly, this is one of the highlights during our stay in Spain, it would not have been the same without him explaining all the history and the stories behind, the tour is a must if you are planning to try this restaurant. I highly recommend this tour, they provided us with a very memorable experience!”
