We spent the night with one other couple and we had James as our tour guide. James is so funny and he created such a great atmosphere. He doesn't have a pre-selected menu for you, he gets to know what you like and what you...More
We had a lovely evening with Charlie and the other guests. I find official historian based tours a little dry and so this is a great combo of fun, facts, orientation, advice and eating. Highly recommend it if you want to see the city in...More
James was an awesome guide who kept us in stitched most of the night. The tour was better than other food tours I've been on as the food wasn't pre-selected like most. James got to know the group and ordered the things we all wanted...More
James is a wonderful guy full of wit and humor. He took very good care of us and asked what we liked and didn't. He knows great selections of tapas and libations in all the places. We had a great time eating and drinking. Couldn't...More
Our group was small due to a last minute cancellation. However, that did not make it any less fun. Miriam was phenomenal at choosing locals places for us based on our likes. Not only did she spend time answering our many random questions, she genuinely...More
We took a tour with Charlie on October 8th. There were a few other Americans and a guy in his early 20s from Australia. I value the ultimate freedom of traveling independently and am very hesitant to anything as part of a tour group, but...More
A great way to see the city whilst enjoying great food and wine in good company. Miriam kept us all entertained with great anecdotes and humour, whilst making sure the food and drink kept coming. We just put money into the kitty and that kept...More
We took the evening tour with Miriam. Our group had people from the USA and the UK, and it was a great way to share the experience of learning about tapas, enjoy great food and wine, company, stories and see Madrid in action on a...More
A great night out and introduction to Madrid. Our guide Miriam was charming and very knowledgeable about her beautiful city.Drinks generally good and the food gave you a feel for a Tapas night out. A great way to meet other visitors from around the world...More
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as
desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.

I remember my fitbit that day being over 5 miles and I maybe walked 2 outside of the tour. That being said, I walked from my hotel to the meeting point. Your parents could taxi to the meeting point and taxi back to the hotel. That still would probably make it a good 2 miles of leisurely walking. I hope that helps.
The longest walk we had from one venue to another was a little over 10 mins. The rest were approx 5 mins max. At the end of the night we finished at a location and James was very happy to help with taxis so not problem... More
