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.
Great tour with a wonderful guide who took us to 4 tapas bars from the different regions of Spain. The price included the first bar and then we chipped in 20 Euros each to cover the remaining bars. We had enough to cover all and some to spare. I highly recommend the tour for those who want an introduction into this culinary adventures of Madrid.
Well worth the money. A great thing to do on your first night in Madrid to get familiar with old town and some customs. James was lots of fun and knew his stuff a Brit with 23 years in Madrid.
Tour was one of our most memorable experiences while in Madrid! Guide was so much fun and the other people in our group were a lot of fun and we ended up staying out til the wee hours of the morning after the tour ended. Perfect amount of info and value! :
Wonderful tapas tour! James was a terrific guide and host. The food was great at all of the places we visited.
We would do this tour again and will definately tell our friends about it.
Wow! What a night! We had an amazing tour guide and a wonderful group of people to share the night with. The food and drink was fabulous. The night went so quickly. Charlie, our tour guide, ensured that we were safely in a taxi to go home. Couldn't ask for a better night.
Excellent tour! We not only visited four very different tapas bars with very different character, but they had very different menu choices as well. Our guide spoke excellent English and was very knowledgeable. She provided detailed explanation of the food types and choices available from different regions of Spain, which we were exposed to on the tour. She provided detailed history of the development of these various food choices and how they are prepared. Since we walked throughout the older part of Madrid, we also got a detailed history on many of the locations we passed, so of a historical walking tour of mid-town Madrid, only at night, a freebie. Highly recommend this tour very early in sightseeing as it helps in sorting out thetapas experience during the remainder of your stay as this appears to be the only food available throughout Spain. Our guide, Miriamsp, was the best guide of our entire 10 days in Spain and we had many excellent guides.
We are so glad we did this. We are both adventurous types who aren't afraid of the unknown, and we had already explored earlier during our first day in Madrid, but our guide Miriam and our group bonded very early during this night out. Miriam took us to some great stops and made incredible food recommendations and drink pairings along the way. 4 hours later we all said goodnight and went our separate ways, but shared a lot of stories and laughs along the way. My wife and I both felt that this was the best excursion money we've spent during our travels through many countries and are probably going to do it again in Seville.
James was an absolute delight and a ton of fun!! He took us to a ton of places and tried all the tapas Madrid had to offer. We tried the traditional Iberian ham and seafood fresh that day. We also had tasty drinks to go along with it. Am so glad we chose to do this and it honesty made our trip. Would highly recommend to anyone!
This tour was fantastic! A small group around 12 people, and the guide was so funny! He had some interesting insides and storys. The restaurants were amazing and the food was fun, tasteful and the bear/vine was so nice, and the Scottish ascent of our guide was so fun to listen to in Spain!
I was traveling alone - and this was a great solution for the fact that everything is meant to be shared in Madrid. Our tour guide, James, was knowledgeable and ordered some great tapas for us.
James was our tour guide for the night and took us to some of the best tapas bars in Madrid. Along the way he stopped and gave us some history of the city intermixed with fantastic food and drink. Would highly recommend!
This is the best way to be introduced to Madrid. Do it on your first night. You feel your way down to Plaza del Sol using a map provided by the hotel, find the tour guide in our case, James by the little bear/tree sculpture, and then relax and have fun. Not only do you meet some new friends 11 in our group, but you visit some cute tapas bars and eat some great food and wonderful beverages of many styles along the way. Your guide tells you some history and points out some sights, but best of all, tells you about the customs and local practices that will let you negotiate Madrid on your own during the rest of your trip, without feeling like an idiot. You pay for three-quarters of your food and drinks out of your pocket, but you can order as much or as little as you want. Also, you get to choose what you want the guide offers many suggestions - all turned out great - I didn't think I'd like anchovies, for instance. Highly recommended. If they had six stars, I'd give James six.
The tour was really fun and we went to some great spots for Wine and tapas. The tour guide had great information to share about city which made is special.
We had a very good time and would also recommend starting your stay in Spain with this tour as the information is very useful. Defiantly enough to eat, slightly more expensive than we thought , yet overall a good way to experience different foods. Really fun to meet people from other areas of the world. Enjoyed James and appreciated all the good information.
MUST DO!!!!!!! This night was a blast!!! We got to experience a true night out in Madrid and didn't feel like tourist!!! James our guide was exceptional!!!! His wit, wisdom, and expertise made us all feel like old friends going out on the town for the evening. A tour like this is a nice break from seeing endless museums and exhibits!! I cannot recommend this enough!!!!
We had a lot of fun, tried many new foods and wine and learned a lot.
Our guide was James and it was wonderful, the name of the local tour company is Adventurous Appetities so be prepared to try eating things you would not normally eat. The tour lasted about 4 hrs starting at 8pm. Lots of food you will not go hungry. You get to try many of the local specialities like the cider and ham but also some more interesting food. It was a small group of great people which is always our preference. James gave us information about Madrid itself as well as what and where to eat during our stay in Madrid. Even though we had already been in Spain for 4 weeks at this point, touring the country, it was our second night in Madrid and still extremely informative. I recommend taking the tour at the beginning of your stay in Madrid, not towards the end which some of the group had done. The first bar is paid for by the guide afterwards the group pays for their own. James recommended putting money into a kitty which made things much easier for paying, he took care of everything and we could just sit back and enjoy the experience and get to know our new friends.
I really enjoyed this tour. Our tour guide was a bit quiet, but he had all the facts and tips we needed. Some people were surprised how the tour was structured pay for the tour, the food as you go but I think it was great. When we wanted the second bottle of wine, we treated ourselves. Was a small group and we clicked, so that helped too, of course.
We would never have tasted such a large variety of food and drink, visited the little side roads of central Madrid and learnt a little about the history of some of the food, drink and places, if it hadn't been for this tour and Ivan our guide.
We had a great time.
Nice small group. Have been to Madrid 6 times previously but was able to walk away feeling like I had learned something and had new experiences. Food was good as was the company. Our guide was well informed and engaged in great dinner discussions. Fun night out!
Great night. so much food , we were so full that in our 4th stop most of us did not have room to eat more haha. I recommend food tour if you want to learn about tapas and also get to know good bars and restaurant.
