It was a great experience. The best part was the guided tour of El Prado Museum!
I was very satisfied with this tour with our brilliant guide Irene. The only think I didn't like is to have to walk from Museo del Prado to Reina Sofia 20 minutes. Our tour ended around 2:30pm.
Absolutely worth it especially if you don't have enough time but still want to see the highlights of the city, highly recommended. The tour of the Prado museum was unforgettable. Our tour guide was an exceptional teacher. If you love art, you cannot miss the Prado museum!
This was an excellent tour. Our guide Irene was very knowledgeable. Her passion for the art is felt through her descriptions of the pieces and artists. This is a great wSy to experience both museums.
Fue un tour excelente. Las guias explicaron muy bien. Las explicaciones en el Museo del Prado fueron espectaculares.
Irene was an excellent tour guide. As an Art Historian, she was able to explain history and development of art through the ages. Both museums were very interesting - we had an hour between both museums to relax and have a coffee- very good for the traveling weary. Irene loves her job and it shows. thank you Irene -- I go home with an understanding and appreciation of the Spanish masters! Learning a bit about El Greco from Irene, it made out trip to Toledo that much more meaningful!
A very good tour that we thoroughly enjoyed. Skipping the lines at the museum is always a good thing.
Brilliant the city tour was great. The guide was fantastic as was her commentary of the Prado museum .
Well organized tour for those with a short amount of time in the city. Hits all the highlights. You can plan to go back and see at your leisure.
Skip the line Prado was great. Wonderful guide providing us with tour of the highlights, and the the afternoon free to explore on your own.
Our guide was very informative and the it gave one a taste of all the wonderful art to be seen at the Prado. The Reina Sofia was well worth the visit.
Touring two museums in one day was an ambitious adventure, but we enjoyed this tour and saw the highlights in both museums. I frequently sat down along the way to pace myself. I would recommend spending more time at the Prado if you are concerned about the activity level. This tour involves walking and some stairs. Recommend bringing water.
Our plans changed and we were unable to make the morning bus departure. Company would not allow us to join the afternoon Prado session.
The tour was very good. The guide for our Madrid highlights was splitting her time speaking in English and Spanish. It was hard to understand her and she wasn and #39;t very friendly.
The guide for the Prado was excellent.
The audio equipment was the worst I have ever encountered. I could hear very little of what was said. This was compounded by the guide speaking off the microphone much of the time. The tour was very limited and to only the Spanish artists. We booked for a tour in English . We were disappointed that another language was included , because we could have been shown twice as much. A very poor tour indeed. This tour was a complete waste of time and money and we would have learnt more taking ourselves around the museum.

This tour was totally worth it. My husband and I went on a Thursday morning, when it wasn't too busy. There was only one other pair of tourists in our group. Our guide, Irene, was so knowledgeable about art history, and gave us very detailed yet easily digestible information about the composition and the historical context of each of the works of art she showed us, and was probably 95 of the reason this tour was so amazing. We were able to ask a lot of questions, and due to the comparatively low attendance at the museums that day, were able to study a lot of the artworks at our leisure without being rushed or pushed by crowds. My husband said it was probably the best tour he's ever been on in his life.
It was great to be able to see so much in one day! Especially loved the Prado tour!
Our Guide on this tour was Irene and she gave us an amazing tour of the imporetant and interesting paintings in the Prado..
I cannot praise her enough how she explained all the different aspects of the artists and their work,
Due to unexpected circumstances I could not continue to the Reina Sofia but I can thoroughly recommend her to anyone wanting to make this tour. Barry
Everything about this tour was perfect. Our guide, Irene, was a delight: friendly and pleasant, knowledgable and articulate, and her explanations of the art and artists made it all come alive.
Getting in before the crowds even just a little was a real plus, too.
Both.the Prado and Reina Sophia contain more exhibits than one could see in one day, but the tour gets you started right! I can not recommend this tour highly enough.
A friendly, charming and extremely knowledgeable guide with a degree in art history eased our tour of the Prado and the Reina Sofia. It was a huge advantage to be able to view the Garden of Earthly Delights and other important paintings without throngs of other people.
Very good tour that highlighted the main attractions in Madrid from Cibeles Fountain, Alcala gate, independencia gate to Espana Plaza. El Prado Museum tour was interesting also although it did not cover the whole sections but we visited the most important works such as Goya's and Velasquez.
It was good and informative. We didn't have much time to spend and we needed an afternoon tour. The only thing that we didn't like was that we took it on Sunday when there is a free entrance. We paid , though.The good thing was that there was another queue, a short one. Also, we were dropped there at, approximately, 5 or 5.30. Though we were told that the museum closed at 8 o' clock, it closed at 7. Too little time for Prado museum.
