The Bear Statue Plaza Puerta del Sol s/n, 28013 Madrid, Spain
Charlie led a group of 9 and we went to several places that were close to but off the main tourist grid. Each tapas bar was unique and had specialties so we experienced a variety of food and drink along with the history and culture...More

Had a great tapas tour in Madrid with Adventurous Appetites.
Our guide Ivan was friendly and knowledgeable. We got a great variety of tapas bars, covering four of the Spanish regions.
Great value. Highly recommended
Our guide Ivan was very good and the people we met were so interesting and fun. I loved that he recommended the specialty of the house at each bar. We were able to try drinks and tapas we never would have know about. I recommend...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
