Madrid for food lovers! Learn about Spanish wine and discover traditional Iberian Ham houses in Madrid. Then enjoy a traditional flamenco show featuring some of the best flamenco performances in the Spanish capital while savouring a traditional Paella dinner. 
 

Day 1: Madrid


Arriving at Madrid airport, make your way to your centrally located hotel. Check-in and spend the remainder of the day at leisure to relax or begin exploring Madrid on your own. 

Day 2: Wine & Iberian Ham Tapas


Enjoy a leisurely breakfast and a free morning to spend as you chose. Then set out on a small group tour that will take you off the beaten tracks, tasting the best Iberian Ham paired with selected Spanish wines and visiting emblematic and high-quality Jamonerías (Homes of Ham). Sample several cuts of Iberian meats like chorizo, salchichón, 'lomo' and ham paired with Manchego cheese and other classic tapas. As you do so, you'll learn about the fascinating history & culture of wine, the differences between each type of ham you can find in the market and master how to shop for them like a local. Do you know the difference between Jamón Serrano and Jamón Ibérico? Do you know the difference between Jamón and Paletilla? Learn about the wide range of Ham (Jamón) & its related products and the 4 protected Qualified Appellation of Origin of the Jamón Iberico. Taste and see how a professional ham cutter carves those delicious thin slices with his special long knife and experience first-hand why Iberian ham (Black hoof) is so delicious and unique…and also healthy. During this 2.5- hour tour we will also sample some extra virgin Spanish olive oil, and learn about & taste the most typical lunch in Madrid: 'cocido madrileño' (madrilian stew). Taste, learn and enjoy! (B.L)

Day 3: Flamenco Show & Dinner


Today is free to enjoy Madrid as you please, visiting some of the many historic sites or museums this cosmopolitan city has to offer. Tonight you'll enjoy a great traditional flamenco show! Founded in 1970, Cafe Chinitasis located in a beautiful and inviting 18th-century mansion – a perfect place for those wishing to combine Mediterranean cuisine with the best flamenco in the Spanish capital. Some of flamenco’s most important artists have performed at Cafe de Chinitas. Tomas de Madrid, La Chunga, always barefoot and spontaneous, the legendary Rosario, Maria Albaicin, Carmen Mora, Pastora Imperio, Manuela Vargas, and the "Los Pelaos" family… And also the most outstanding singers dominating a variety of styles, such as Carmen Linares, Tony Maya, Maria Vargas, Enrique Morente, El Lebrijano, and Jose Merce, who started his career in this tabla to become one of the most famous flamenco artists of the moment. Among the guitarists that have performed here, one must not forget the grand maestro Victor Monge "Serranito", Andres Heredia, Manuel Sison, El Entri and the Carmona brothers, better known as "Los Habichuela". Nowadays, some of flamenco’s top virtuosos and young promises perform regularly at Cafe Chinitas, who see the tabla as a door to the flamenco world. The show has a duration of approximately 1 hour & 30 minutes. (B.D)
