James our fearless leader led us on an amazing tour of Madrid. His hilarious perspectives, passion for food and drink, careful planning and knowledge of Madrid translated into a great first night in Madrid. English (Scottish brogue) was easy to understand. Great value for money!

We did have a slightly larger group this night (12 people) due to en emergency with one of the guides, and are sorry if this detracted from enjoyment of the night. Usually with more people it is more fun and better value though we do try to keep our groups relatively small and personal. We regret any possible confusion over... More

Booked directly with James at Adventurous appetites after reading great reviews. We met at 8pm in Puerto del sol, there were 13 in the group & it wasn't long before we started chatting, drinking & eating in the first bar. There were 8 from the U S A ,3 from Thailand & 2 Scottish. James made us all feel comfortable... More

James made what could have been an ordinary tour into an incredible evening! He has extensive knowledge on many subjects well beyond food and drink. Having said that, we tried over 15 dishes at four very different establishments. We started at 8 and finished at midnight and enjoyed every minute. Come hungry, thirsty, and with an open mind. You wont... More

Friends of ours recommended the Adventurous Appetites tapas tour to us when they heard we would be visiting Madrid. James was an absolute pleasure to work with while booking the tour, and he blew our expectations for the evening out of the water. It was an amazing adventure, one we will do again next time we are in Madrid

What an amazing, invaluable experience! We booked our tour with James after a friend couple of ours highly regarded Adventurous Appetites as "extremely worth it." In a nutshell: - We ate and drank exceptionally well for 4 hours (James was even kind enough to escort and join us a bit at the last bar after the tour was officially over).... More

We really enjoyed our guide. She did a fine job of explaining tapas and the tradition behind them. We were a little disappointed with the quality of the tapas.

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.
