Enjoy some of Spain’s traditional cuisine during a unique gourmet walking-tour with stops at some of Madrid’s emblematic taverns. Accompanied by an expert guide, sample some of the best "jamón ibérico" (Iberian ham) and other products with renowned Spanish wine.
Greet your guide in Plaza Isabel II, in the heart of Madrid, at the scheduled time and head on a two-and-a-half-hour tour around the old town. Your guide will explain all there is to know about Spanish wine and you’ll visit some of the oldest bars in the city, where you’ll eat exquisite jamón ibérico washed down with a glass of wine.
Next, follow your guide to a "jamonería", a store specializing in the finest-quality Iberian ham, to uncover the “jamón ibérico” culture. You’ll learn to distinguish between the various varieties of ham and you’ll learn how to cut a leg of Serrano or Ibérico ham. In one of these family-run shops, you’ll be served half a bottle of wine per person to accompany the tapas.
During the gourmet tour, you’ll sample a variety of Spanish hams and sausages, including chorizo, salchichón, lomo and 5-year cured jamón de bellota (the finest type of ham). You’ll also be served 4 types of Spanish cheese and other classic Spanish tapas (croquetas and mini cocido madrileño). Moreover, you’ll be given three varieties of extra-virgin olive oil accompanied with bread and do a wine tasting of premium Spanish wines as you learn about the various types that exist in Spain.
By the end of the tour, you’ll be experts in Spanish wine and ham and you’ll be given tips where to find the best quality for the best price.
