What you'll do

Cañas & Tapas. These two words sum up the “aperitivo” culture in Madrid perfectly. Our creamy beer is only achievable through what we call “Tirar la caña” which literally means pouring away the beer. This ancient way of drinking is unique in the world, but careful, not everyone can serve a good caña, and thats what I am here for!

I am a professional trained chef that decided to change pans and fires for the world of beers, wines and people, and I ́m not going to lie, it's one of the best decisions of my life. Now I have the palate of a retired chef, the nose of a sommelier and the communication skills of a natural born entertainer

I am really keen on sharing my knowledge and learning with you guys, because us Madrid locals believe that for a Cañas & Tapas experience to be great, conversation and laughter are actually just as important as beer and food!

But don´t worry, the food we will try is carefully selected from the best and not always most accesible places, at the end of the day the center is full of tourist traps, so rest at ease, we won´t be falling for any of those.

As I am not always available, please check the established dates and choose your own. If you can´t find the date you are after, just send me a message.

I am already looking forward to meeting you guys and sharing that which we love the most; food, beer and good company

My name is Alvaro and I was raised in Madrid. As a profesional trained chef with a degree in Culinary Arts Management I decided to venture into Enotourism in the french region of Saint Emilion, France where I really got to learn the winemaking (and tasting) process. Since then I have become really passionate about wine and food pairing.

After over a decade traveling the world my life took a 180 degree turn when I moved to Perú and had a spiritual awakening, discovering how I spent many years running away from my home town Madrid. I came back to realize that my city has one of the most attractive gastronomic offers in the world, with a unique street atmosphere and the best of people.

Since then It has become my mission to share my passion for food, wine and my home town city, offering a professional take, from a locals' point of view.

Where you'll be

We will start off at El Mercado de San Miguel to warm up the senses. From there we will walk along the touristy Plaza Mayor until we make it all the way to the local La Latina. There are many hidden corners in between that I will make sure to point out. After touring around we will make our way back through a series of plazas and cathedrals to finish at La Calle Mayor.

Gustavo was a very friendly, professional guide with expert knowledge about traditional Spanish food and drinks. The variety and the quality of the food + drinks as well as the tapas bars we went to were amazing! On the way we stopped by some sights and also learnt the most important facts about Madrid‘s history. I had a great time and highly recommend this experience!!

Great experience! We left so stuffed full of amazing food. We were taken to locations that we wouldn’t have been able to find unless we were local along with some more well known spots.

Pablo fue nuestro guía y desde el principio tuvimos un click con él, le agrega un toque histórico a la narración que complementa muy bien la comida. Nos gustó mucho conocerlo y que nos guiará. Lo único que no nos encantó fue un par de la selección de tapas, pero en general fue una buena experiencia. Gracias Pablo!

The tour really was fun! We ate a lot but didn’t feel stuffed. We learned a lot but didn’t feel lectured to. We definitely learned things we wouldn’t have learned on our own. Our guide tailored our tour to deal with my food restrictions. (Celiac). Highly recommended!

This was such a fun tour! Full of yummy things :) Our guide Pablo was awesome!!! We went on 4 different tours on my trip and this was by far my favorite. I just wish we had done this the first day because it really helps you get to know the city. Pablo was super knowledgeable about history too so we got to learn fun little tidbits along the way. Our group was just 4 people which was really nice and the tour was tailored to us. He gave us options so we got to choose what we wanted to try. Highly recommend!

We did our tour with Pablo and he was so much fun! He asked throughout the tour what we were interested in food wise and customized for us as we went. We had a fantastic time!
