Fantastic (estupendo!) introduction to Madrid, tapas and drinks to match. James, our host, took time to understand the groups tastes but still got us to try new tapas experiences - all to our immense enjoyment! James ensured that the group held together whilst adding amusing and historic anecdotes. The food and drink accompaniments were 'to die for' and the company just added additional value to our evening. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting, or indeed living in Madrid. One additional factor, that reflected well on James, was the closing note that he wrote to each couple giving recommendations, based on their tastes, to make the stay in Madrid even more enjoyable. 5 star plus from me.
This tour was fabulous. Our guide James was very knowledgeable and full of interesting stories. We experienced a lot of new things. We only hope the walking part of it can be shortened (the venues closer together) since everybody is already tired from walking the rest of the day.
Excellent, does cost more than the price on here so take cash but worth every cent. Guide was excellent and was a great orientation of where to go and what to eat.
I took several tours while I was in Madrid and this one was by far my favorite. The tour guide was exceptional and he took us to local establishments that served delicious tapas. I would go back to Madrid just to take this tour again....that is how much I liked it! Definitely a MUST.
We thoroughly enjoyed this walking tapas tour. I do feel you need to stress that there are additional expenses involved after the first place you go to for tapas, so everyone will come prepared to pay additional euros during the tour.
Awesome experience!! Our group pooled our money together and ended up visiting 5 tapas bars (the last one was for dessert). We had a great time, and ended up staying out long after the tour was officially over, vising with the other people in our group. I would recommend this tour for anyone traveling to Madrid!
Brilliant Fun! Tour guide was really friendly and informative, met some super people from Australia and the USA, lots of laughs, lots of great food, A must do when in Madrid.
Had a wonderful evening with James Fraser, our Scottish guide. He was knowledgeable, funny and friendly. Enjoyed all the people on our tour also. Great evening for a wine and tapa tour.
This was a great tour. James our guide was very knowledgeable about area, the foods and the people. We were fortunate to also have fun people on the tour.
Amazing tour! Tour guide was great. I was a solo traveler but met a great group of people who we continued the night after the tour and went out to dinner next night. Just an amazing night and great selection of places kudos to our tour guide!
I had a great experience on this tour. My guide, Miriam, very knowledgeable and helpful. We were a small group. She took us to very interesting tapas bars and explained what we were eating and how to order. She also wrote down some very informative information for us. She was very pleasant and helpful and made my first night alone in Madrid a lot of fun. Thanks Miriam.
I truly cannot say enough good things about this tour! I chose to book it for my 22nd birthday, and I had an absolute blast. The food we had throughout the tour was some of the best food I have had...ever! Our tour guide Dan was really knowledgeable and also relaxed, creating a good dynamic for the group. The whole group stayed out together after the tour ended into the early morning, and I could not have asked for a more fun night in Madrid. Definitely sign up if you love food and drinks - you definitely get your money's worth in both!
We had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed our tour! James was an outstanding guide and by the end of the evening everyone felt like they had been long time friends!. He selected wonderful bars and encouraged everyone to sample the various tapas. We all put in 20 euros per person and had plenty of food and wine! We are so glad that we selected this tour and it was one of the highlights of our trip to Spain. Great food, wine and fun. Thank you James!!
Amazing! Our guide, Miriam, far exceeded our expectations. She provided a lot of information as you walked the city beyond just the food and drinks at our stops. She was very knowledgeable, polite, friendly and fun. I would HIGHLY recommend this tour and Miriam. What a great night in Madrid!
Awesome tour! Small little group, but all very nice, and our guide was also awesome and funny. He told us more informations than I got on another tour, even though he said all the time, he isn't a historian ;-)
We did end up throwing in 35€ all together, but we tried so many different things, which we would have to pay way more on our own. Also, he showed us all bills on every bar, so that you knew where the money went. At the end of the tour, we didn't want to end it, he brought us to another one, where he then left us, so we even got to see more than the tour promised. Good way to get more informations on Spain, taste different food and drinks, and meet new people!
James made the evening one to remember, he is the perfect guide, knowledgeable, funny and nothing is too much trouble for him. My husband and I were a little dubious spending the evening with 8 strangers (2 brits and 6 from USA), but by the time we got to the second bar we were all chatting and enjoying each others company,so much so the 3 hour planned tour ended up being nearly 4. We let James take control of the drinks and ordering the food, this is where his knowledge comes in, we all tasted things we would not even have ordered,let alone eaten! Thanks James your a star.

we had such an amazing time! Danny our guide was great, he showed us all around the city and ordered for us a very delicious tapas menus, no touristic pubs were visited which was fantastic...just with locals..
Wondergul guide, fun to be with and interesting. Had a great time and we had a nice group to enjoy the exerience with. Highly recommend
This was a fabulous tour. James introduced us to a variety of drinks and lots of different tapas and we learnt so much about Spanish customs and culture. In fact by the end of the evening we couldn't eat any more. The next night we were confident to go into a local tapas bar and order. Great tour to do early in your stay in Madrid.
Outstanding tour. James did a great job. At end he got us a cab to take us back to hotel. Perfect night.
What a tour! If you don't do anything else in Madrid try this!
Great Bars Great Food and superb company.
This tour was fantastic! Our knowledgeable guide, a genial Scottish ex-pat, took us to a variety of tapas bars around the center of Madrid. He provided us with some history along the way, as we walked from bar to bar. In each bar, he told us about the specialties and made ordering suggestions. We all threw in 20 Euros each at the start of the tour, and he came up with wonderful drinks and tapas, most of which I would never have ordered but all of which were interesting and delicious. We all felt like we were part of the Madrid life on a crowded Friday evening. It was WAY fun! I can't recommend it enough. Just do it!
