Excellent walking tour visiting different types of tapas places We had a really fun group and had an absolute blast. Our guide, Miriam, was excellent and proved to be a wonderful guide and had great suggestions for us. I'm not a huge fan of tapas but Miriam was hell bent to make me a convert! My friend wanted to have... More

We had the pleasure of doing the walking tapas tour with Miriam. She was informative and made sure everyone was fed and tipsy! As others have mentioned, all of her suggestions were stellar...from what to order to how we should pool money. We did the tour on the Saturday night before Christmas and every place we went into was packed... More

Having scheduled our tapas tour on our very first day was truly a genius move (on my part, of course), as our in-depth look at how Madrileños enjoy their nights set us up for absolute success throughout our entire stay. Danny, our guide, showed up at the meeting place on time, and after a brief moment of waiting on another... More

The title summed it up. James Frasers' tips basically saved us a ton during this trip, from Madrid to Cordoba, Malaga....even Lisbon. Its not just showing you the great places to go tapas trippin' , but more importantly , how to order, ask for the bill; how, when and how much to tip.... It might be counterintuitive , but I...

I was not sure how this tour would turn out when I booked it. I've had great and bland experiences with other tours before.But James brought out the perfect balance of knowledge and humor to our tapas walk. This was easily one of the highlights of my first trip to wonderful Madrid.

Just returned from my first visit to Spain, and hopefully it won't be my last. A big part of my trip's success can be attributed to our guide Miriam, a native who led us on a brisk, informative, and fun tour of some tapas bars in and around the Puerta del Sol. As a novice solo traveler, I knew joining... More

James Fraser our guide for the Adventurous Appetites Tapas Tour in Mardrid met with us underneath the bear statue in Puerta del Sol. This was a good group of from Iceland, USA and Australia. From the first minute of the tour we were happy that we decided to book it. James took us to many tapas restaurants and gave us... More

James was our guide and we had a wonderful night. The pace of the evening was just right. We had been in Spain fit a few nights on our own trying different tapas bars and felt like we were doing pretty well. James' tour showed us so much more and made us feel so comfortable elbowing our way up to... More

I went on this tour in September and then in November. I am so glad I went again. The tour is super fun and James makes it feel like a party each time. There are different tapas to learn about and wines and he is definitely a guide to know. I might actually consider another one. The tour has many... More

Thanks to Miriam for a wonderful time on our tapas tour of Madrid. We got to visit several places we never would have found on our own and taste some amazing tapas (and drinks too) along the way. I highly recommend this tour as the wonderful people at Adventurous Appetites made it so easy to enjoy what Madrid has to... More
