Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    My Secret Food Tour with Jorge was exceptional! He was extremely knowledgeable about the history of Madrid as well as how certain food and drinks became so popular in Spain. The selection of restaurants were perfect and we tried a variety of food as he told us the stories of the proprietors of these establishments. The pastry shop was granted free rent from he king and queen as long as the owners handed down the restaurant to the next generation in the family! I would highly recommend Jorge and Secret Food Tours while visiting Madrid. You will not be disappointed!

    Pedro was awesome and did a great job on our tour. It was raining and a bit cold but he was very good at adapting to the situation and making sure everyone had fun. Highly recommend Pedro.

    Book this tour! Don’t hesitate. We had a fantastic time with James who is fun, funny and incredibly knowledgable about Madrid and tapas (and probably most other things as well). The food was delicious.

    Raul was an excellent tour guide and this day was the perfect mix of history, information and culture. It was great to tour Toledo with a guide who knows so much about the area and all of the details. I feel like we got a real sense of the history in the few hours we spent there. Our stop for lunch was an incredible meal at a very warm and welcoming restaurant. The winery he brought us to was so unique and interesting, with excellent wines! Overall the experience felt very unique and like Raul had worked hard to create the perfect day and formed strong relationships leading to exquisite treatment at everywhere we stopped. I would highly recommend this tour. We are a family of 6 adults, so had it privately to ourselves.

    This was an absolutely amazing experience that I could not recommend highly enough! It was an intimate setting, as there were only 5 of us on the tour (by design). We were guided by Brian, whose knowledge on the subjects of Iberico ham, wines, and traditional Spanish cooking were vast. I used the phrase, "He's probably forgotten more about these topics, than I'll EVER know!" LOL He was engaging and entertaining, and he took us to places that the local people go. Outside of some of the more touristy areas. I appreciate that SO much!

    The tour started in a small local restaurant and bar. We were served what Brian described as a traditional "Sunday dinner". It was what I would best describe as a deconstructed stew. It consisted of boiled beef cuts, chorizo, chickpeas, cabbage, carrots and a rich, hearty broth served in a demitasse cup. All of the elements are boiled together to create the broth, but individually removed and served. It's unlike "stew" as I prepare it, where all the ingredients are cooked and served together. The broth contains all the flavors of each element, but they're served individually.

    Along with the stew, there was a slice of Spanish tortilla, which was amazing, a croquette, and of course, wine! We tried two different wines, one was a Madrid wine, and the other a Spanish red. Forgive my lack of detail on the wine. We had a few glasses. LOL However, both were excellent. The nose, body, taste and finish of each were superb!

    After our meal, we walked to Jamonaria Julian Beccarra for the next leg of our gastronomic adventure. This was the part I was really looking forward to. I was in Spain 6 months ago and had the opportunity to try genuine Iberico ham. This, of course, ruined me forever regarding all other ham. LOL it IS expensive, but when you taste the highest purity level of this ham, you'll know immediately where your money went.

    We each had a plate with 3 different grades of Iberico ham, 2 types of Manchego cheese, and several different cold cuts. Brian walked us through the history and grading of each Iberico ham, and had us try each grade individually. Using a delightful Cava as a palate cleanse between each tasting. I won't go into any of the history or grading, I'll leave that to Brian, the expert. Take the tour you won't regret it. I promise!

    It was a simply brilliant evening. Made even more memorable by our co-conspirators, Diane, Cindy and Laura. Shout out to you crazy kids! Love to you all! A special thanks to Brian for providing us with the opportunity to learn more about the history of this incredible product. This ham is so ingrained in the tradition of Spain, the two cannot be separated. Nor should they ever be. Any inconsistencies in this review are mine alone, and alcohol may have been a factor. LOL Take the tour and judge for yourself! ❤

    Absolutely first rate. I have lived in Madrid for nearly twenty years but still learned a huge amount on this tour with Flo, who was a terrific guide. Highly recommended. The flamenco show was a great finale.

    Carmen’s did a fabulous job showing us all the sights and answering all our questions about Spain, it’s food and it’s history with a smile. A strong recommendation from us and a fabulous way to start our visit to Madrid.

    Paloma was the perfect guide. Patient with my nervous 11 year old, gave great instruction on use of the segways and shared lots of knowledge about Madrid.

    Delicious churros and chocolate at the end.

    We'd like to report that we had a great time with Carlos on our Gourmet Madrid Tapas and Wine tasting tour.

    Carlos was knowledgeable, informative and a fun and engaging tour leader. The places he took us Casa Gonzlez, El Lacon, Casa Del Abuelo and Los Galayos all of which treated the group spectacularly, and provided us with an incredible selection of Wine and Tapas. My only recommendation is that as a tourist new to Madrid, you should do this tour early in your visit, as you will want to return to each or many of these establishments for further meals. Truly a great experience.

    Had a great afternoon with Carmen learning some history about Madrid and Spain. She is very passionate about her country. We tried varied tapas that took some of us out of our comfort zone! Very enjoyable and fun!

    Marianissa took us around the locality of Anton Martin. We sampled local drinks and food in bars and restaurants that we probably otherwise would not have understood what they had to offer. She speaks with great love of Madrid and was very informative as to this area. Her enthusiasm is infectious and we very much enjoyed our tour and the time spent together. Highly recommended!

    This tour isn’t what is advertised. We had an alright evening with our guide Gloria (who is lovely) but the description of a wine and tapas pairing event with a professional trained chef simply isn’t true. Completely overpriced as it was something we could have done by ourselves. Not an organised event and would not recommend.

    Great tour with a good overview of Madrid markets that we were able to return too. Carolyn kept the tour very interesting and interacted very well with our teen daughter who also enjoyed this tour very much! Walking distance was no issue at all as we made many stops along the way. Return for the Olive oil it was great!
