What a fun evening we had with James, getting to experience tapas the way the locals do. Adventurous Appeities it certainly was too - we got to try food we would normally not have eaten, and all of it was delicious! Definitely not to be missed

This was a surprise for my girlfriend and boy was she happy! They take you to a couple of non-touristy tapas bars and expose your palate to so many delicious tapas and wine/beer/cider from different parts of Spain, you'll never regret it. This was for sure a highlight of our trip.

Our guide Miriam did an outstanding job providing us with a great Madrid tapas experience. We learned a lot and had a great time . She told us this group of strangers would be friends by the end of the evening and she was so right. I would consider this a must-do when visiting Madrid; highly recommended.

We love doing food tours in the cities we visit, and this one didn't disappoint! James is an interesting, funny and all-around great guide. You can tell he truly takes pleasure in showing people around his city. The places he takes you to change day to day, and they are mostly hole-in-the-wall places you probably wouldn't venture in on your... More

Our tapas tour of Madrid with James Fraser and Adventurous Appetites was insightful, informative, tasty, and hilarious. We would totally recommend this tour to all if you want to get away from the tapa tourist traps and experience the places where the locals eat, drink and converse. The 4 hours that James spent with us flew by, but by the... More

I did this tour the first night I was in Madrid coming from the states and it was awesome. Really enjoyed the people in the group and Miriam was fantastic as our guide. All the food and wine was excellent and I liked the idea of putting money into a kitty to cover food/drinks after the first place. It worked... More

We booked the Adventurous Appetites Tour after it was recommended to us by friends as the highlight of their trip and we were not disappointed.

Staying in Huertas

Neighborhood Profile
Huertas
Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The neighborhood is committed to celebrating its rich heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas receives a fair amount of spillover from the center — side streets around Plaza Santa Ana take on a foreign party atmosphere at night, and you always see young backpackers navigating the streets — but as you descend into the neighborhood, everything becomes a little more cramped and slightly less refined, and takes on more of an underground feel. Live music is at the heart of Huertas: by night, its subdued bars are ideal for meeting friends, sipping cocktails, and chatting quietly while enjoying jazz or singer-songwriter performances.
