This is a MUST in Barcelona. We had a very knowledgeable, fun and courteous guide. We learned so much on this tour about the history and past live of Madrid, as well as present stories. This was not a collection of tourist traps in terms of restaurants and facts, it was a truly authentic experience of what it is like to be a Spaniard, what is it like to live in Madrid. We were encouraged to try foods we never would know to order on our own. Our guide from Adventurous Appetites was very knowledgeable about the tradition and the region associated with each dish. Highly recommend! You will feel Madrid's pulse on this walk.
Great experience ! James was superior , knowledgable , fun and took care of us as if we were long time friends. I would recommend this to to anyone . Worth every dime !
Our tour guide, Miriam, was amazing! By the time we got back to our hotel, we were DRUNK, FULL, AND HAPPY!!!
James was a great tour guide, funny and charismatic, took us to some great places to try great tapas and wines. Although he claimed he is not a historian, he also provided interesting information regarding Spain and their traditions and history. We had a fun group and the experience was enjoyable. I highly recommend this tour.
I wish I could give this more stars. Our tour guide was James, the proprietor - who is hilarious - and this was the most fun night we had in Spain. James gave us a history of not just the food, but various sights that we saw as we moved around old Madrid. He advised what to have in each bar and sampling the speciality drinks and tapas in each bar was a DELIGHT! Coupled with his humor - it couldn't have been a better experience. I could have done this EVERY night!
Since my usual bedtime is around 8PM, I had my doubts that I would last the scheduled time of 8PM to midnight. Much to my amazement, the time flew by and I was able to enjoy and partake of every moment of it. James was a terrific guide and the group was friendly and lively---more lively as the evening wore on. I highly recommend this enjoyable evening to all.
Well done! Thanks James!!! First class tour! Cool and interesting stops! We tried a great cross section of classic Madrid and Spanish Tapas and the drinks at each stop were interesting and fun! Great way to learn
About the city.
I cannot speak highly enough of the tour and James. James is very knowledgeable and really shared his experience of a really wonderful city. But perhaps more importantly he provided us with an approach to allow us to do the tour again but on our own.
I want to give this tour 400 stars! James, our guide, was the absolute best. He only does the night tours. If you can, definitely do that. There's no rushing through meals. Each place we went to was AMAZING. Bring your appetite and try EVERYTHING!
Awesome tour and James, the tour guide, was great! Got to try a lot of dishes I would not of ordered if on my own. I was absolutely stuffed by the end of the night.

OMG - What a fun night! Our guide was fantastic! She took us to sooo many places and introduced us to the real local fare! I tasted things that I never would have thought I would like and learned many things about the art of tapas and the cuisine of the different regions of Spain. We met a bunch of great people from other parts of the US and Canada and got so chummy that we continued our tapas tour long after the tour ended! Wear comfortable shoes because you will be walking all over Madrid all night long.

Loved our tour - Miriam was a fabulous guide to many new and exciting flavors. High.y recommended!
Our guide was James Frazer and this was the best part of our Madrid trip! We had already spent 3 nights in the city but wanted to see what the guide could show us on this tour. It was great fun, the food was great, trying different wines, cider and beer was great, and we really enjoyed the whole evening. Do this one! Thank you James Frazer!!
much better than my expectation,highly recommended for Madrid visit!!!
Fantastic way to learn one's way around Madrid. James was a terrific guide. Our group put money in the pot and let James tell us what to order. He always explained what we were getting. We tried foods we'd never eaten before, the majority turned out to be quite good. Many historical sights were pointed out with ideas about when would be the best time to visit them. This is a late night, so don't plan an early morning outing the next day.
This tour was then ugh light of our time in Madrid! James was fun and informative, and the food we sampled was some of the best of our trip. I would highly recommend this tour, as would the other 3 participants!
Great guide with a very easy manner. We sampled so many tapas that we never would have tried otherwise.
Fabulous Tour! A must if you are going to Madrid. James was wonderful, very knowledgable and fun.
Absolutely just right!
A perfect introduction to enjoying and understanding Tapas in Madrid.
James was amazing. Tapas was different at each place, and we tried things that normally we would not have tried, this was also the case for the drinks. Cider was a bit of an acquired taste. Location for pick up in the square was easy to find and convenient. Well done james.
Had a fantastic time. The tour was really helpful for getting a feel of how to order tapas and trying things we might never have tried on our own. The guide was knowledgeable and fun. The recommendations were all great.
