Gives a good history of the city and you can use as an alternative to the taxi. The two-day pass was great because it allowed us to explore. The old town bus goes over more area.
Amazing! Very convenient !
Absolutely beautiful! Excellent tour.
An excellent way of seeing Madrid and deciding what to go back and explore.
Very much like the Hop-on Hop-off, but with ability to get into the Royal Palace. The guide was helpful, but the Royal Palace tour was very short. Taking the time to go into the Cathedral next door is well worth your time.
The bus was always full.
In the morning I started on Plaza Espana and I arrived at 09h30AM and I had to wait until 11Am to get place on the bus (passed 4 bus until have space)
During the day was very difficult to have free bus.
I lost a lot of time waiting for a free bus

We had a great time. The guide was helpful and answered all our questions. The tour was both enjoyable and educational. The bullfight was a great insight to the country's culture and history. Thank you.
The Royal Palace tour was a highlight of our stay in Madrid.
Best way to get around. Great!!!!
The previous reviews on the Madrid Segway Tour were accurate, this is something that should not be missed. The guide was knowledgeable and courteous. It took a bit of practice to be able to control the segway but the guide was patient and understanding. It was so much fun, the next time I'm in Madrid I will book a Segway. Fantastic!
Perfect way to see a new city..easy to access with reasonable amount of time between buses.
if you plan to visit majority of madrid museums and sights, this is a must!
you will save some money and priority entrance to prado, thyssen-bornemisza and reina sofia museums as well as royal palace make it that more valuable if you plan to visit madrid in the high season.
don't miss the museum of america ;)
i know i will try to find and use this type of card anywhere i go next.
Highly recommended. Great way to view sights, get your bearings and convenient way to travel. Impressed with frequency of buses. Could do with better signage to find relevant bus stops but not a huge problem.
My sister and I had a fantastic time riding on the Segways through Madrid (even going up and down the Gran Via during peak times) it was Hilarious fun and our tour guide Nico was the best! I would completely recommend it to everyone that wants to see the sites of the City in the the Most Fun way possible!
Doesn't matter what big city, if they have the Hop-on Hop-off tour, definitely take it, cheap and lets you get off where ever you like, see tourist spots and then just get back on again and get off at the next location, very good.
