Spending an evening in a stranger' s home cooking dinner sounds like a weird way to spend a night on a vacation. But Bea and her son Alex don't let you stay a stranger long. They warmly welcome you into their home and you quickly feel like you are with old friends. The experience of learning local culture and flavors while hearing real life experiences from real people is invaluable. Not the normal night out in Madrid, but one you should not miss.

It was a great experience for me and my family. You actually learn how to make a paella and a sangria with your own hands. Anna and her husband, were very kind to us and treated us like friends. Very cool experience. Then, flamenco time! Beautiful!!!!

This was an excellent experience! Our guides were very knowledgeable and made the experience both informative and enjoyable. The paella was incredibly delicious, and the recipe they gave us was easy to follow. (We were able to make it at home with the tips and tricks we learned in class!) Overall, this was a great tour, and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a fun food-oriented experience in Madrid.

Fabulous! We had 6 people on this tour and it was perfect. Our guide Anna was a very good host at her apartment where we prepared some classic sangria. While that was chilling we all pitched in to make the paella! When the sangria was cold, we took a break and Anna finished up the cooking. We then enjoyed a great lunch! This was a perfect and relaxing way to meet some locals and talk about normal life in Madrid. Very fun!
