A nice introduction to the city. We did get out to see the Royal Palace, otherwise we were just viewing key sites by bus.

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 tour itself was excellent in terms of what we saw. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable but lacked in personality and enthusiasm. We just felt she "was going through the motions" for yet another bunch of tourists. In other words, her heart clearly was not in it. However Madrid had some wonderful sights and she provided plenty of historical information to accompany the visual side.

Arrived at the venue early but the tour guide only announced the tour in Spanish so we missed the bus. Julia travel called the bus back to pick us up. Very confusing for all since many tours were leaving at the same time. The city sightseeing was poor as you could not understand the guides English. The guide at the Palacetour was excellent. She knew a lot of details and took time for everyone.

TOUR GUIDE speaks more spaish and little English, Viator advertises English speaking, Do not use Viator

This sightseeing tour is very interesting and efficient! My parents were visiting for only 4 days while I study abroad, so they didn't have a lot of time to see everything in Madrid. This tour allowed them to see basically every landmark around the city! The tour guide was also very helpful and funny. It was nice to get off the bus and see the Royal Palace too. I'd definitely recommend it.
