Taste of Madrid
Are you a foodie? Is the highlight of your vacation when you get to explore the local food culture? Let us introduce you the city’s vibrant cuisine! Our local host will take you to some of the best establishments to try local tapas, small bites full of history. In Madrid, tapas are not just another way of eating, they are a way of life!
Through the crowded avenues, Madrid has the smell of churros; an air of Goya and Cervantes; the taste of jamon serrano (the famous ham) and the best croquetas you will ever have. The café where Lorca and Dali used to meet with other poets and artists awaits you and of course, the beer, poured like nowhere else in the world by bartenders who know every secret of the job. Having porras and hot chocolate, chatting over sherry in the emblematic taverns where the check is still written down in chalk on the wooden bar….these are just a few of the experiences that we invite you to enjoy with us!
Flamenco Up Close
Flamenco is a fusion of dance, instrumental and vocal music, with an immense range of moods and feelings- expressive melodies and sincere lyrics. The best way to experience flamenco is to watch a live show at a tablao. We will take you to one of our favorite so that you can enjoy it first hand.
If you would like to experience flamenco in depth, we can even offer you the possibility of taking a private class with a small flamenco troupe who will introduce you to their secrets. Of course, it is possible to go and purchase some of your very own flamenco styles in the city’s traditional flamenco attire stores. Why not join us?
