Madrid Tapas Night Walking Tour
Reviewed by: Helen M, October 2014
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening and thought it gave us an excellent introduction to Madrid. We felt very 'at home' afterwards wandering around the old town. Danny was a fab guide and lived up to his entertaining reputation, taking us to several great tavernas - ones which we would never have found otherwise. I won't spoil things by describing the theme of the walking tour, only to say it had a structure and was informative! En route, we were given some history of the places we passed by and other venues of interest were pointed out. There were 11 very nice folk in our group and it's amazing how quickly a dozen strangers can bond over a glass or two! We paid about 20 euros extra each to cover all the extra food and wine we had. Highly recommended to those who enjoy good food, wine and company!

Had a great time. It was raining and cool and we probably would have just stayed in the hotel had we not booked this tour. James is a fabulous host! We went to some great bars/restaurants that we probably would never have wandered into and we ate some local specialties that we would never have tried. James made the evening informative and fun. It was just enough history/antidotal local stories and great food. The group was a great mix and we enjoyed sharing the evening with new friends. Thanks again to James from his new Memphis fans.

If I could give this 6 out of 5 I would!! This was superb and was such a brilliant idea to do the first night of our holiday. We had a group of 8 and James the tour guide took excellent care of us, The first stop-off is built into the price, the next three places James will try and get food and drinks for 20 Euros and did a good job. James will do everything he can to cater for dietary requirements aswell. This is a food/drink/culture tour and was worth every penny, don't go to Madrid and not do this!

Brilliant! James was excellent. He was fun, informative, interesting and made sure everyone enjoyed themselves. I highly recommend this tour! James took us to some quite different tapas bars throughout Madrid city centre. He recommended their specialities and we were able to try some tapas and wines we would not have chosen ourselves, as a result, got to try some excellent things. The tour goes for a couple of hours, and you need your walking shoes on, but by the second stop, you are having so much fun you hardly notice. Thumbs up James!

The tapas tour was a complete blast. Our guide James gave us just enough history to make it interesting and intrigue us to do more in Madrid. The food at the stops we made was excellent and we loved the way James gently encouraged us to experience the culture. I would highly recommend this taste of Madrid.
