Loved this tour. James was a great guide and so knowledgeable about Spain, Madrid and the tapas culture. We had a small group and all got to know each other well. I thought this tour might drag given the late finish but it went really fast due to James and the other people on our tour.
This was great!!! Our guide, James, an expat Scot was fantastic. He was funny and above all--very informative about Madrid. We ate so many different tapas 10-15 at least plus sidra and wines. I can't begin to say how much fun we had walking around Madrid seeing Madridlenos enjoying their traditional evening entertainment of stopping at bars, socializing, enjoying great food.
This was an excellent experience and definitely worth doing. Unfortunately it was torrential rain which could have spoiled it completely 3 people didnt turn up because of the weather but our guide, James, made it a good night. He had a loud deep voice which meant that as we walked along we could hear him clearly. The tapas ordered was varied and ,although I personally didnt like it all, was great to give it a go. James pointed out a number of things that we certainly wouldn't have found out for ourselves about traditions etc. We visited 4 places and sampled different foods in each one. Only the first stop price is included in the price but James organised food and drink in the other 3 and we all put in enough money to cover the cost. This suited us and worked well and wasnt expensive. We manage to find our way back to one tapas bar for our last evening and got great food!!
A great evening. The people, fool and drink were all terrific. It was nice to spend time with other people and to laugh and eat together. Highly recommend.
This was the most fun that we had in Madrid. Our tour guide Miriam was THE BEST. She paid close attention to every person in the group, made sure that everyone was comfortable and being served what they wanted when they wanted it. Our group was a very nice size - 11 persons - and every one was so great - we had time to chat and learn about where everyone was from, where they were headed next, etc. It was a great social event, but even more so, Miriam taught us about North and Southern Spain, how the food and drink in each place differs, how to be aware what type of bar we were in and how to order accordingly, etc. She brought us to places that we would have never thought of to go, and had us try food that we would have never known to try. We LOVED it and stayed out past the final stop, our guide had to head on her way long past her required job time! and we had the extreme privilege to enjoy time with one of the couples on our tour the next evening whilst we were both still in Spain. We made friends that we hopefully will keep forever! A WONDERFUL introduction to Madrid's city center. HIGHLY recommended. Miriam was the BEST.
This tour was amazing!
James was the best possible guide we could imagine for this fun Tapas Tour in Madrid. Do it your first night there so you can get a culinary overview of all the possibilities in this beautiful city. With 7 people total we were able to socialize, relax and enjoy great wines and tapas

A big part of my first and so far only trip to Spain's success can be attributed to our guide Miriam, a native who led us on a brisk, informative, and fun tour of some tapas bars in and around the Puerta del Sol. As a novice solo traveler, I knew joining a group for some activity would be recommended, and I was not wrong.
The walk from one bar to the next were easy, even in the crowded streets, with occasional stops to admire landmarks or ask questions. Even if a bar was not expecting our party, the nature of each place was such that a group of 10 people was easily accommodated, and very quickly fed and served drinks. All of which was delicious and reasonably priced. The price of the tour included drinks and tapas at our first stop, and then we each pitched in 20 euros at Miriam's suggestion to cover the bill for the rest of the tour. So affordable! And so much fun. I definitely plan to do this tour again should I return to Madrid.
So glad we picked this tour! Our guide was from the UK but showed us Madrid like a native. So worth it!! Long night but you won’t realize it until the night is over.
My friend had warned me Madrid might not be great for a single traveler since everyone goes in groups. Whether or not he was right, this was a great way to do tapas my first night in Spain. James our guide made it great by getting everybody introduced. Lots of food and drinks. Very much worth it.
