What People are Saying

We recently completed the Madrid Tapas and Flamenco Tour and had an incredible evening with Arantxa, our guide, and a small group of six. It was a great way to learn about the history and artistry of Flamenco, as well as a deep dive into Tapas culture in Spain. We met the local artisans that make the shoes and guitars used in Flamenco and details to watch for during the show that make it a special event. We enjoyed a tasty sampling of Spanish cheeses and meats with a delicious choice of wine in a histor, family-owned shop. We found Arantxa to be extremely knowledgeable during the tour, and would highly recommend booking with her during your time in Madrid. Thank you Devour Tours and Arantxa for enhancing our stay in Madrid! Olé! - Kelly DeLeon
Oh, my goodness, Ariana Cardenas was our tour guide. She was knowledgeable about all the food, beverages, and history of certain places along the way. We enjoyed the new beverages we had and the many different tapas we had never enjoyed before! Educational along with delicious food and friendly people. We would recommend this tour to our friends and family to tour with Devour Tours. Thank you, Devour Tours, for a wonderful experience! - Janet Hernandez
Highly recommended! An absolutely wonderful experience. Took their Tapas, taverns & history tour on our first full day in Madrid. This walking tour gave a great overview of the historic center of the city and gave us confidence to wander on our own for the rest of our stay. - Jamie O'Donnell
