Mealtimes on escorted tours in Spain

Jump to last reply

I'm aware that the evening meal is often taken in Spain substantially later than it is in the US. I recall waiting for a restaurant to OPEN for dinner at 9 pm in Madrid, and being so crowded by 10:30 pm the foyer was full and the line waiting for a table stretched out the door and down the block!

If my wife and I, in our 60s and experienced travelers, opted to join an escorted tour of Spain instead of doing it on our own, what might we expect for the typical evening mealtimes for an escorted group? Would they usually be the same as the local citizens' customs, or would it be more typical to eat the evening meal earlier, closer to American dining hours?
