Bit disappointed that the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium tour was self guided and the "where to next" was not at all clear when you begin.

I didn't enjoy this tour as much as I expected. Some of the guests on the tour bus kept talking making it difficult to hear the live tour guide. Some people also wandered away when the bus stopped for photo taking and it annoyed me that we were hanging around looking for them. A recorded tour guide with ear plugs and making it a hop-on-hop-off tour would improve the experience. The stadium tour though was excellent!

Trip began 15 minutes late due to an irrate traveler. It ended early, and we had a great tour, but it was awfully quick for the price we paid. Nice sights. We went to the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium as part of the package. Great tour, but it was a self tour. When done, we were left there without much direction as to where to catch the bus. Beautiful city.

The tour was good considering we had a very short stay.......got an overall view. The tour stopped with a drop off to the stadium but there was no guided tour as expected....

Tour before hand was not as I expected it to be, rode around the city on a coach with only 1 stop at Hard Rock cafe before we got off at Bernabau. As a football fan this tour was amazing and the only reason I booked. You can however make your own way there and pay to get in which would be cheaper.

This tour was a bit of a disaster. The roads around Madrid were closed due to a bicycle race and we could not get to many of the attractions. They offered a walking tour from one point but it was not the same.

I loved visiting the stadium, however, it should have been clearer in the itinerary that in the middle of the 3 hr tour only those that paid to tour the stadium were being dropped off at the stadium to do the tour alone. Of a group of about 20 people, i was let off across the street from the stadium by myself--didn't even get the full 3 hour tour of the city!

Initially we enjoyed the tour, but the fact that we were dropped off at the stadium was never made clear to us and we were left to fend for ourselves in a strange city. I found that indefensible!

We had a knowledgeable tour guide but I am sure we missed a lot of information as we were part of a Spanish-English language tour group. Our guide was translating both languages and some sights were missed while she was translating for the other language. Best to get an all English tour if possible. The stadium tour is done on your own. The tour guide told us to just enter thru a gate using the vouchers provided. We were not informed that we had to get tickets (about 100-125 people in line). Good thing I decided to check at the counter and showed our vouchers so we were instantly given tickets. Prior to checking at the counter, I tried calling the local tour operator and they weren't helpful at all. I asked how come the guide told us to just enter thru a particular gate but was told to get tickets instead. Lady who took my call just kept saying she didn't know and that I should just ask at the counter.

Would not really recommend this combined tour definately better to book the hop on hop of bus and the bernabeu stadium tickets separatly as we found out that on board the bus it never dropped us of at any of the citys's attractions just to the Hard Rock Cafe for a free soda could do without this was dissapointed all in all but we did enjoy the Bernabeu stadium
