I didn't have much time to spend in Madrid, so I decided to go on this tour - and it turned out to be the best decision ever! Our guide, Laura, was truly amazing, providing insightful information and creating a delightful atmosphere throughout. The food exceeded expectations, with the carrillada being the highlight. And let's not forget the rooftop terrace – it absolutely took our breath away. If you find yourself in Madrid, this tour is an absolute must.
