The Madrid Card is very practical especially if you are seeing many attractions in Madrid.
Best deal for your money. Got to see a lot places that is included with the card. Highly recommend.
FABULOUS!!!!! We loved the card. It allowed us to go to many museums and sites and not feel obligated to see everything.
If your trip to Madrid will include several museums, get this card. Even if you don't save any money (which may be the case--check online for ticket prices with the individual museums), you will make up for it in convenience of not needing to stand in line to buy tickets. As a tourist, your time in town may be limited--and even if under no time pressure, you didn't travel to Spain in order to stand in line. This card possibly saves you money, but definitely saves you time.
Be sure to note the pick-up locations at either the airport or train station. If you don't get it in those locations, you have to pick up your ticket at the Tourist Office in Plaza Mayor, where a single clerk handles the line of Madrid Card patrons. She's helpful, speaks a bunch of languages, but the line moves S-L-O-W-L-Y.
Thumbs Up on this card.
I paid approximately 75 CAD for a 72 hour pass. With Bernabeu at 16 Euro and all the major museums and palaces at 8 Euro or higher, I may have just broke even on this card, and I am a maniacal planner who is willing to skip meals to see good art. However, I never stood in a line. With the priority access I could walk into any of the major museums and attractions at peak hours and bypass hundreds of people waiting in line. My time is worth it!
I found the purchase very good it enabled me to see a lot of Madrid with no hassel.
A perfect card, that allowed me to see all of the museums that were on my itinerary. I loved Madrid, and look forward to returning one day in the future.
It is worth its weight in gold just to bypass the lines to the prado and palacio real! I recommend this if you like museums and hate waiting in lines. I only got the 24 hr one, and it was enough to see the prado, botannical gardens, and palacio. it you are really into museums, get the 48 hr card. Im not a huge museam fan, so I lost interest very quickly in the prado! So dark!
If you are a traveller who likes to optimize your time, this is an excellent value over paying for things individually and saves you time over waiting in tickets lines!
Great card. We went to the main museum without pay a penny. We took advantage of must of the things. Be aware that this card different to the BCN one doesn't include the metro tickets. But it was a worthy!
Excellent value for money as we wanted to see the art of Madrid and were able to do so for what we thought was good value as a combined ticket.
