Without question, this tour lived up to all the positive feedback and comments I had previously read. A great way to enjoy an evening in the city. An informal evening filled with information, fun and great company. Our guide, James, as he says, is not an historian, but a mindful of interesting knowledge delivered in an easy, fun type style....

This was one of the best experiences of the whole trip to Madrid! Great drinks and lovely food. The tour guide, James, turned out to be a really cool dude. Would recommend the tour anyday.

Great introduction to tapas and understanding how it is eaten by the locals. The places you visit aren't necessarily the best tapas places in town, but the tour allows you to confidently seek those out yourself after you have done the tour. Miriam was a great informative and fun guide and gave interesting insights into the city of Madrid. Would... More

We visited 4 tapas bars and walked round the centre of Madrid. James Fraser was attentive, knowledgeable, humorous and entertaining. We learned more about Spanish food, wine and customs in one night than we have in years of coming to Spain. I would recommend this for a first night in Madrid if you don't want to waste time and want... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of spending the evening with James for a walking and tapas sampling tour. What a great time! While walking around old Madrid, he shared with us historical information, peppered with stories and anecdotes of current customs. We learned a lot and enjoyed his company. The tapas sampling was definitely the highlight. He explained... More

When traveling in a strange city, especially if you don't speak the language, what you wish for is a friend who knows his way around and can guide you. That's what Adventurous Appetites provides. Of the many tours we took traveling through Spain, this was our favorite. James is the perfect interpreter of more than the four languages he speaks,... More

I went on the adventurous appetites tapas tour with my wife and 2 friends on Tuesday 10 November and it was an excellent night. It was a lot of fun, an introduction to tapas and local wine and other drinks. We were encouraged to try some food and drinks that we normally would avoid, nearly all of which was a... More

Me and my girlfriend went on this tour in mid October and had a great time. Our guide was Danny who, born and raised in Madrid, was very knowledgeable. Also on our tour were three Irish ladies who were a lot of fun. We went to 4 or 5 different places, including an awesome sherry bar which was probably my... More

I came on this tour, led by Miriam, alone and ended the night with a group of friends. It was a great way to see the city at night, experience the tastes of Spain, and meet new people.

We had a large group (32) attending a business trip in Madrid. James was extremely helpful in being able to tailor the tour to meet our needs. We had a fantastic time seeing some of the sights of Madrid. We were able to visit 3 different types of Tapas bars and try lots of different food. James and Danny provided... More

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
