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

Just got back from Spain and this was one of the most fun evenings I have ever had... I was a bit skeptical at first but as we moved from bar to bar, it just got better. James was so knowledgeable about Spanish cuisine and we loved the people on this tour... It was just a great evening ....after we... More

Miriam was extremely nice and helpful! James, who set up our tour was very prompt and also very nice, especially since we were able to book the same day. They were both very open to any questions. She had a lot to say about the city and certain hot spots about the area. We learned a lot about the history... More

My boyfriend and I went on this tour on our first night in Madrid and we're so glad we did. This was the highlight of our trip and although 4 hours might sound long, it's not. We were having so much fun, the time flew by. James, our tour guide, was amazing. He catered to the needs of our group,... More

I'll have to admit I was skeptical. After the first bar, James recommended everyone pool 20EUR each. Wow!!! It turned out to be huge bargain!!! We went to four bars and even accounting for the complimentary tapas, what a value! There was more than enough food and drink. He challenges you to try exotic tapas., James wasn't kidding...it was a... More
