The highlight of our recent, most enjoyable, 6 days in Madrid was undoubtedly the Adventurous Appetites tour. James took us for a tour of central Madrid, giving us the benefit of his considerable knowledge and showing us bars, with tapas and drinks that we would never have found on our own. Additionally James suggested other places and restaurants to visit... More

The tapas culture in Madrid is completely different to going to a Tapas restaurant in the UK. James Fraser the proprietor of this company took 8 of us on a tour of 4 tapas bars in Madrid. We went to a variety of bars and he explained how and what you ate. He was good company and really made the... More

Joining James of Adventurous Appetites for a tour of tapas bars was an excellent decision. We had a great evening, met some really nice fellow 'Adventurers' and ate and drank things we'd never have dared to try without James's encouragement. (Though I'm not sure I'd have the chick pea and 'mystery ingredient' again!). It gave us the confidence to try... More

Our highlight of our Madrid stay was the Tapas tour we took with Myriam (Adventurous Appetites Tapas tour). We loved trying the different tapas and visiting the different quaint restaurants. We also had a very informative tour of the area we were in. We enjoyed the food, the company and the tour !

A very interesting evening. We learned about ordering tapas, and successfully took that knowledge with us around Spain. James, the tour host, was fun, informative and entertaining. It did cost a fair bit over the base tour cost, but I would do it again just for the excitement of it ... and to mine James' information about the city: history,... More

I sent emails to some of the top rated tapas tour providers on TripAdvisor with some pretty bespoke requirements at short notice and was delighted when James from Adventurous Appetites called me back almost immediately with a wealth of information about Madrid. We had a private tour for a large group on a stag weekend, which Danny, our guide, led... More

I took this tour in march and found that it was very informative. The guide did a good job walking through the different tapas and eating habits of Madrid . I had fun with the group I was in. To be honest by the end of the night I had paid around 85 euros for the entire experience. This includes... More

Thank you for your review. If booking this tour we advise all clients to book in advance through Adventurous Appetites as there is a considerable discount (about 17% on date of writing) for advance payment due to the currency conversion. We do operate a pay-as-you-go system in which the tour fee includes the drinks and tapas in the first bar.... More

The best decision we made when we decided to visit Madrid for a long weekend was to join this tapas tour. At first I was a little put off by the cost but it was money well spent. James gave fantastic insight into the Madrid way of life, historical buildings and its culture. I wouldn't class myself as an adventurous... More

I higggghly recommend this tour to anyone visiting madrid especially for the first time! James was our guide for the evening, and he couldn't have made it a better experience! We went to 4 places all with something different to experience. After the first bar, we all chipped in 20 more euro and it worked out perfectly. Everyone in the... More
