We cannot recommend Devour Food Tours highly enough. As well as giving a remarkable introduction to eating in Madrid, we had a fascinating tour of the city, learned some of the history of Madrid and we’re treated to some of the best food the city has to offer. All in all, a wonderful way to experience this great city, its food and culture. Our guide, Anna, could not have been better. She was friendly, knowledgeable, caring and a perfect host.
