This was a wonderful tour and a great introduction to Madrid! Marian was a wonderful tour guide and she went above and beyond expectations with our tour. I would recommend this tour to everyone who doesn't mind staying out a little past midnight!!!

Have to repeat: James is good!!!
We were skeptical a bit about this tour after seeing that extra expenses will be needed. Something around 30-35 eur per person. We haven't read all the info just a couple of hours before the tour.
Eventually, James crushed all our skepticism and we spent 20 eur per person extra.
As the tour guide, he was responsive, happy to challenged, and extremely enthusiastic even after all those tour he already had.

EXCELLENT Tour. You get to try a lot of good foods, get a good amount of history and most importantly, learn how to do tapas in Madrid. I recommend doing this tour the first couple days of your trip.

Great way to start your stay in Madrid. James was fun and informative. I would not have stopped in these Tapa bars without this tour, but would visit them gain if and when I make it back to Madrid. This is a great way to start your stay in Madrid since he moves around to various places that it will familiarize you your first night in.

The walking tour was fantastic. James was very friendly and funny. He took our small group to places we would never have found on our own. We tasted a variety of delicious food, some things I personally would never have been brave enough to order. Our group stayed together for more than four hours and included people from all over the world. This was a 5 star tour !!

James is great! He was so great at tayloring the tour to our taste but remember COME HUNGRY AND OPEN MINDED! This tour only works if you don't mind stepping out of your comfort zone. Go with James' recommendations! He knows what he's talking about. THANK YOU

James was a very fun, informative tour guide! I don't eat meat, but it was no problem at all. Plenty of other food. And James always remembered who had food preferences/allergies and accommodated them. I recommend anyone traveling to Madrid for the first time to take this tour at the beginning of their trip. Understanding the local customs is important to having an enjoyable experience.

Miriam was amazing! She was knowledgeable, led us to interesting sites as well as great taps bars. We were a diverse group from Australia, Canada, Africa, England, and of course the USA. We had a lot of laughs, a lot of food, and yes, a lot of wine. SALUD to Miriam and Viator for a memorable evening!

If I could give ten stars to this Tapas Walking Tour, I would because it's that sensational!

James is an amazing tour guide and took us to some wonderful tapas bars. Along the way to each bar, he'd stop to share historical and anecdotal information about the city sites.

Once at each bar, he'd choose a variety tasty tapas, never repeating something we tried previously. Sometimes he would tell us what they were, sometimes not, encouraging us all the while to try something new. I know that I certainly tried, and was shocked to like, some dishes that I would never have tried on my own. James also told us about the ingredients and preparation of each tapa.

James also fostered a sense of camaraderie and friendship among the people in the group. By the end of the night many of us were chatting like old friends.

In summary, the tour was a fantastic introduction to Madrid and would I'd enthusiastically recommend this tour as a wonderful way to learn more about the food, culture, and history of this beautiful city!
