Do as the locals do and seek out an authentic taste of the flavors of Madrid on this food tour that takes you to the city's most popular tapas bars. Learn more about Spain's gastronomy, culture, and history as you taste delicious dishes from different regions.

Tapas were born in Andalusia—located on the southern tip of the Iberian Peninsula, this sun-soaked region is one of Spain's richest cultural and gastronomic hubs. While tapas may be Andalusian in origin, today tapear—Spanish for going out for tapas—is a beloved activity throughout the country.

Follow your local guide as you're introduced to the nuances and spirit of this festive and attentive dining tradition. As you eat your way around town, have a drink or 2 to wash it down. Sip on the popular Rebujito cocktail from Seville, a sherry-based spritzer traditionally enjoyed during the La Feria celebrations in the Spring, or try your hand at pouring Asturian Cider—this apple-based libation is served dramatically, empting the bottle from overhead into a glass held low to bring out the fullest flavors.

Pull up a chair at 3 different tapas bars, learning how these shareable, bite-sized plates are prepared daily with fresh, local, and high-quality ingredients as you sample you way through Spain. Tuck into saffron-scented paella, marinated fish, crispy patatas bravas, salty cured jamón Ibérico, various Spanish cheeses, and the deliciously simple pan con tomate.
