My husband and I visited Madrid last summer with another couple and decided to give this a try. What a great night we had! We met people from all over the world - couples and single travellers and James was 100% the host with the most. Couldn't fault the tour - we saw parts of the city we would never... More

Unlike most people that probably take this tour, I've been to Madrid several times for work and although I've had tapas before several nice dinners there, I had never really done a legit tapas night. Like I said to James, I've peeked in these crowded places that you see when you're walking around the old town but I couldn't fathom... More

I choosed between different tapastours and I think I take the best due to Miriam's knowledge and experience.It could not be better. She took us to 4 different tapasbars with seafood,meat ,green peppers,jambon etc.with accompanying wines and a sort of cider (brandy). It also depends of the persons of the group you are and it were interesting people(a couple from... More

This tour was excellent. It was like having a close, knowledgeable friend show you around the city. James took us to 4 different tapas bars and will customize, according to your preferences (a wine place, a seafood place, a ham place, etc). These bars are not touristy and are filled with locals. I would not have ventured into them independently,... More

James took us out for a great night in Madrid. Totally molded our tour to fit the personality of the group. He's a phenomenal guide and makes the whole experience very personable. Don't get suckered in to doing copy cat all-inclusive tapas tours, James is the real deal and you're in great hands w him! Great job James.

Tried to book for Thurs 12th but James explained that the tour is much better with other people and there were no other people booked on that day but there were on Fri 13th.... More

Myself and my wife were on a flying visit to Madrid and wanted to experience as much as possible in one night. Adventurous Appetites Tapas Tour was the perfect way to explore the real Madrid with Miriam's expertise. We would have been lost trying to get the same experience on our own. The food and wine selections were excellent and... 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

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.
