James was a wealth of knowledge whilst we toured the streets of Madrid visiting some outstanding tapas bars. Plate after plate of food just got better and better. I tried food I wouldn't dream of eating at home and it was all so extraordinarily fresh and delicious. Like other reviewers, this tour gave us great confidence in how to approach... More

My sister and I chose to start our trip to Madrid with a tapas tour on our first night. We are very glad to have chosen Adventurous Appetites! James ensured that we tried a variety of tapas from about 5 very different places. The tapas were all fantastic as well as all of the wine! By the end of the... More

My sister and I began our trip to Madrid with a tapas tour on the first night. Choosing Adventurous Appetites was a great decision! Not only did we get to eat fantastic food but James really helped introduce us to the city and the Spanish culture. By the end of the night we felt comfortable ordering tapas and drinks on... More

Amazing insight into how the Spanish live. James was a wonderful guide, knowledgable, funny and interesting. Learnt how to eat tapas as locals. Also learnt a lot about the city and its people. Very informal atmosphere had a group of people who didn't know each other chatting like old friends by the end of the evening. The food was wonderful... More

I had a great experience right from the start with Adventurous Appetites. It was easy to book and pay via email. The tour itself was really fun. Being in Madrid on my own I wanted to experience the tapas bars like a local but had no idea where to start - this tour gave me that experience. James was a... More

Took the tapas tour on my first night in Madrid and what a brilliant introduction to the city. As a solo female traveller I was a bit worried I would feel out of place but James our guide, and the other 8 people on the tour were very welcoming and instantly we were chatting like old friends. James was a... More

First of all, James is a great guide. He gave us some cool information about Madrid the history and the buildings we passed during the tour. He also give us insight into the local customs, like what time people usually eat meals and how to properly eat tapas (throw napkins on the floor, etc.). Very helpful if you've never been... More

I went by myself and had James as a guide. There were 4 other couples in the group, but everyone was friendly and with James at the helm, we had a really good group dynamic. Paying for the extra food was easy as everyone decided to put in an extra 20 odd euros, and James did all the ordering of... More

James really knows his stuff when it comes to Madrid. He makes what could be a slightly awkward situation feel just like you have gone out for dinner and drinks with friends. He tells you interesting info about the city and a little bit of history. The highlight is of course the food. James recommends whats good and takes you... More
