I toured with Arantxa twice and was awesome, and I appreciated her honesty about Madrid. Not only did she give full and detailed understanding of the culture, but she also gave great food & travel suggestions Awesome tours

I would definitely recommend this tour if you want to learn about the culture and how to cook some traditional dishes. I enjoyed the market experience and trying some food and drinks. I really enjoyed the cook experience. Learning about some of the plates and the history of some traditional food is always interesting. Helping prepare the food is another experience. I even learned a new way to cut potatoes.

The content of the tour was very good, starting with the expert advice for the process of selection and purchase of ingredients, then preparation, cooking and table presentation of the recipe, and finally the enjoyment eating the meal.

This tour was fantastic! I totally recommend it to ANYONE, whether they live in Madrid or are just visiting! it's a fabulous way to learn some top tips on improving your cooking generally and learn to make some typical Spanish dishes! I live in madrid and think this is a great thing to do on your own, as a group, or as a special treat with a group of friends. It was amazing to see how a top chef works...and the course is very hands on! you are served wine and tapas throughout and I am so grateful for this experience! hank you Chef Arantza and Chef Francis!
