Enjoy Madrid’s history and culture with a special taste
Hop on board into a traditional experience Madrileña, “la hora de vermouth.”During this tour you’ll visit some of the most iconic places in the Malasaña neighborhood and know all about the district’s most representative history and culture. Along the way, you’ll also stop by at some traditional taverns to taste vermouth, a delicious and refreshing drink made of fortified wine. Nothing goes better than a glass of vermouth than a few snacks, like peanuts, olives and gildas, but you must also leave room for the fluffy tortilla, a classic dish in Madrid.
Mariana, your native sherpa, will take you to the spots that serve the best version of this dish in the city and explain how to make it so you can try it at home.
After meeting at Metro Tribunal we will explore the Malasaña distict, stopping at emblematic monuments and at popular taverns.
One of my personal favorite traditions in Madrid is “la hora del vermouth,” when friends gather before lunchtime to share together a moment of laughter and fun with some vermouth and light snacks. On this tour I will share with you this fabulous tradition. We will explore one of the most beautiful neighborhoods of Madrid and then visit a few taverns to have a refreshing glass of vermouth along with some tasty snacks. I will also take you to my favorite place in the city to try tortilla, a delicious dish known as the Spanish omelet. I guarantee it will be one of the highlights of your trip to the Spanish capital.
Meet Mariana, Your Native Sherpa
Mariana has made here home in Madrid for the past decade, which makes her the perfect food and wine tour guide for the nation’s capital. Besides just talking about the magnificent food and wine on offer, Mariana, a passionate ‘madrileña’, also loves to talk about the art and city’s culture, so you will learn all you need to know about Madrid when you let Mariana guide you.
As a first time visitor to Madrid, Marianna gave me an invaluable introduction to the history of the city as well as its gastronomic delights. She was very adaptable and a real font of knowledge. She also informed me about the free teacher entrance to the two largest art museums, providing me with a benefit of about fifty dollars.

Stunning tour guide, great vermouth experience in Madrid
I had a wonderful experience with Mariana (tour guide in Madrid) doing the “Tortilla and Vermouth tour”. It was my first time trying vermouth and the guide had great knowledge of the drink and the story of it. Not to mention the places we went for the tasty tortillas, all places vibe, a lot of character and history. I highly recommend this tour and the guide.

Fun around town
Marianna was engaging and had many nuggets of information to share about Madrid. The food was tasty but it was challenging to meet all dietary restrictions. Beverages were plentiful!

Nice private tour
We had a private Tour for the both of us trough the Malasaña quarter in Madrid. This quarter seems to be a hip city district with a lot of Bars and Restaurants. Our guide, Mariana, told us very much about this quarter and the history. We visited 3 Bars to taste a Wermuth with little snacks (Olives, Chips) and in the 3rd Bar we got also a fresh Tortilla and a skewer with Olives, Anchovies and Chili. Overall it was a really nice Tour …
