There are so many great reviews I won't go on for ages, but this really is a great night out, very social and lots of fun. Our lovely guide was Miriam (the famed James was on holiday) and she even helped rescue us from a harmless but very drunk man, when we bumped into her a few evenings later. If... More

This was the first time going to Madrid, and I felt a tapas tour would be a nice insight on where to go to eat, and get some tips. This exceeded my expectation, the evening was the best of my trip. I loved every minute, it was fun, and tasting all different types of Tapas was great, even the wine... More

An easy to find meeting place, where we met with a small group of 10 people all English speaking to be shown around Madrid while trying out some local dishes,wines,beers etc with our guide Miriam. We were quickly chatting,eating drinking and gaining confidence at ordering different tapas. A very late night finished with cocktails and much laughter.

Although I'm fluent in Spanish as it is spoken in the U.S., I felt like I needed a bit of orientation to the uniquely Spain-Spanish custom of tapas. As first-time visitors to Madrid, my wife and I chose Adventurous Appetites to help us become comfortable with ordering food on our own subsequent tapas rambles in the evenings. James Fraser, whom...

We are just back from our trip to Madrid and our highlight was definitely this tour. James was our fantastic and knowledgeable host for the evening and he ensured we were relaxed, well fed and watered! We saw places we would never have thought to go into and tried food and drink for the first time (and thoroughly enjoyed!). We... More

My wife and I signed up for the tour and it was one of the highlights of our trip. Miriam, our guide, was so knowledgeable about the city. We learned so much about Madrid. The highlight, though, was each of the little Tapas bars we went to. I would not have known to get certain types of food items or... More

We did this tour in August 2013 with James on our first night in Madrid, and it was a great introduction to the city. There were three couples in our tour and a group of three friends, so we had 10 people. We visited three tapas bars and a restaurant at the end. The tour lasted about 4 hours. James... More

I did this tour with James who was amazing. He showed us which foods belonged to which regions of Spain, and helped us choose what to eat and drink. It was a great experience and a great introduction to Spain for me. I highly recommend this tour, bring your appetites and an open mind, that's what will help you truly... More
