What You'll Do

Madrid has a delicious secret for you! Our Madrid chocolate-lovers guide provides an explanation of the city's delicious delicacies worshipped by all sweet lovers and of course, where to find them. Savour the chocolate and churros at Chocolatería San Ginés, as well as typical Spanish chocolate delights, accompanied by Madrid's famous Madroño liquor.

Although Spain is best known for its wine and its amazing ham, there are many Spanish sweets that will enable all the chocolate lovers to get their daily dose. Whether you are looking for a good cup of chocolate, a chocolate delicacy from one of Madrid’s incredible chocolate shops or something to calm your cravings.

On this 1.5-hour tour, our culinary expert guide will tell you that this stop is a must! I repeat – you must try this place and you have no excuses. San Ginés is the city’s most famous chocolate café. This chocolate shop, dating from 1894, is always packed. The thick, sweet and delicious chocolate and churros awaits us on our arrival.

Churros are a long thin fried dough that is crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside. They are usually eaten as breakfast or as a snack, served with a mug of thick hot chocolate. This is not to be confused with hot drinking chocolate, as this hot chocolate is thick and looks more like a pudding that can be eaten with a spoon. It is also recommended to drink it once all your churros have been dipped and eaten.

Continuing with our experience for chocolate lovers, you will savour an exquisite tasting session, trying Spanish chocolate delicacies accompanied by Madrid’s exclusive Madroño liquor. You will visit a long-standing family store, with more than 3 centuries of experience, believed to be the birthplace of turrón (Spanish nougat) and stone-ground chocolate.

There are classics like chocolate with hazelnuts, almonds, honey, cocoa, all of which are top quality, mixed together under the watchful eye of master craftsmen, holding the recipe for these delicacies for three centuries. A true luxury that will leave a delectable taste your memory.

 

PLEASE NOTE THESE ARE PREMIUM SMALL GROUP TOURS. PRIVATE TOURS CAN BE ACCOMMODATED ON REQUEST.

Ignasi Zarzoso

When it comes to travel and favourite places, his philosophy is 'it’s not about the place, it’s about the experience'. Ignasi does have a few favourite places though... one being his hometown of Barcelona. He has fond memories of Barcelona and would encourage anyone who visits to get lost walking in the streets - definitely the best way to discover the city. His other favourite place is Sri Lanka, having visited recently and loving that parts of the island are still virgin to mass tourism. Ignasi and his fabulous team make sure to only offer tours in small groups so that everyone’s experience is more personal. They don’t use umbrellas or microphones but instead make sure that they get to know the guests and show them the way of the local - not just the main tourist attractions. They also strive to do things differently by using more exciting ways to explore like using premium electric bikes or even offering helicopter and hot air balloon rides. The team are experienced local advisors -not large corporate tour operators. They can't wait for you to experience their city with them from a local perspective!
