James was very personable and knowledgeable. He gave us a great introduction to tapas and the local drinks and was even willing to give suggestions about other activities in Madrid. My family of 6 had a marvelous time. I would highly recommend this tour, especially if no one in your group is fluent in Spanish.
This was a great tour, made great by the guide Merriam and a great group limited to 8. I didn't have high expectations but this turned out well with an extra stop tacked on to the end. A lot of good information on the regional variations in Tapas.
An absolutely fantastic tour! James Fraser our guide was outstanding, humorous, clear, concise, so personable and very knowlegable. We were so thrilled we opted to do this tour on our first night in Madrid as it served as a wonderful introduction to the city, its layout, history and monuments, and then to the tapas way of dining with its traditions, and really excellent tapas bars and restaurants all of which we returned to as they were so good.. The food in each bar/restaurant was simply delectable ..all recommended and organised by James, with relevant accompanying drinks. Each person in our group of 9 was so pleasant, we enjoyed a truly memorable evening and a highly recommendable tour. Thank you so much James.
Great Tour!! I advise this tour early on in your Madrid stay. Great way to learn the art of tapas! Tour guide was wonderful!
James was incredible and an excellent guide for a fun night in Madrid! A MUST!!!
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!!!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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 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.
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!
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!

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.

My tour was amazing! James is a wonderful tour guide. He really knows his stuff. I would highly recommend him.
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.
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!!
