Summary

This guided tour of flamenco, tapas, paella, and toros heritage offers you a unique chance to get to know the best Spanish lifestyle, famous for its warm climate, delicious food, and passion for enjoying life's little pleasures. Don't miss it!

Two typically Spanish customs are the art of bullfighting and flamenco. These are two traditions with which travellers usually identify the whole of Spain. However, the reality is, is that it is a highly diverse country made up of different people with different cultures.

Bullfights are a spectacle for the masses in Spain and one of the oldest in the world. Take an audio-guided tour of Madrid’s Las Ventas bullring, the most emblematic in the country.

This 4 hour experience continues catching a private transfer to Madrid city centre, where, accompanied by an official guide, you will learn about flamenco. Declared an Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO in 2010, it is the most authentic popular expression of Spanish culture.

This art is expressed by singing, guitar playing, and dancing and, although there are many different styles and genres, singers mainly rely on inspiration and improvisation than strict rules.

After the walking tour through Madrid city center, you will have a free hour to wander the streets without a guide. But if you prefer to feel the real Spanish flavours and you want to spend all the time with the guide, you should select the further option of “tasting”. The tasting, guided by a culinary expert, consists of a special selection of Iberian products, washed down with wine. This includes paella, Iberian ham, olive oil, and Spanish cheese. A delight for gastronomy connoisseurs, gourmets and gastronomy lovers! A revolution for the palate, a spectacle for your nose, an experience for your five senses. Don’t wait any longer!

To end the tour, you will visit the Corral de la Morería, named the world’s best flamenco show and included in the New York Times’ 1000 places to visit before you die.

Don’t miss out on this fabulous cultural tour of Spain!
