We enjoyed it very much, all the sites inside were open for us to visit and the staff were very helpful.
My visit to Santiago Bernabeu was the highlight of my entire trip to Spain. I am a big fan of Real Madrid and I had a great time and enjoyed every bit of it and I also had a lot of fun shopping and dinning at the Stadium.
If you are into soccer at all and know the Real Madrid team, I definitely recommend this tour. You see the stadium from the seats, to the field, players bench, locker room, trophy hall, interview room, etc. Very cool!
The bus tour was very informative-it gives you a good sense of the size and different areas/eras of Madrid. Saw lots of things that we wouldn't have had time to see on foot. Go at the beginning of hol so you can see what you might want to go back to. Not so good for taking photos. Bernabeu was ace!
Great Tour! Very Informative of the city and a very good price!
Very good tour and very informative guide. Would recommend it.
HOWEVER, make sure you use the loo before you get on the bus. There was a toilet on the coach but it was locked and there was no key available!! About an hour and a half into the trip there was a stop at the Hard Rock Café to have a drink and thank god there were toilets there. It was a VERY long wait though!
That really was the only downfall ... it wouldn't be a pleasant experience if you had children with you!
A trip worth doing though and the Bernabeu Stadium tour was fantastic,
Good coach tour covering the west of Madrid that the hop on hop off does not cover. Guide gave English commentary which explained the history of the city and why it's architecture is as it is. Did not feel that the commentary was as good as the Spanish version ( the majority of the tour bus came from Argentina). After a couple of hours the coach dropped us off at the Bernabeu. We had to exchange our passes given at the coach office for entry tickets at the (poorly signed) stadium ticket booths. The stadium tour takes about two hours and does not have a guide. This allows visitors to follow the tour signs at their own pace. Interesting interactive displays. After finishing the tour you have to make your own way back to the centre of the city. The easiest option for this is to take the hop on hop off bus directly outside the stadium for €10 per person and you get a day ticket or get a bus from the same bus stop for €1:50 but this does not go to the centre. The Bernabeu tour is not suitable for wheelchair bound people as there are stairs and steps to negotiate and no ramps or lifts.
The Tour was great, big,bus with an English speaking guide
little tricky to find the travel agent meeting point but all in all it was good
This was a wonderful tour! The only slight issue was the fact that the tour guide was not always understandable (in either language). Also, the stadium part of the tour was a self tour (no one ever explained that to us) and the bus didn't wait for us -- we had to take public transportation back to the hotel!! As it turns out, it was fine for us-our children are avid soccer fans! But it would have been better to know at the outset of the tour that we were going to be dropped off and forgotten!!
