Across Madrid Cultural Tours offers a tapas tour that isn't to be missed.

We met our charming, knowledgeable, English speaking guide, Almudena at Puerta del Sol in front of the clock (across the street from the Metro). She began with a brief lesson on Madrid history and culture, and then we were off for our tapas tour through the Huertas neighborhood. 

Tapas is like a moveable feast. At each place we stopped we enjoyed a small taste of the specialty and a glass of beer or wine along with conversation, which was both enlightening and entertaining. These were not the typical tourist spots, but they were definitely authentic Madrid culture. 

Almu put us at our ease and we were thrilled to get this taste of Spanish culture and enjoy a typical evening out in Madrid. I'd highly recommend this tour.
