Good overview of the city - but nothing special. However the Prado guide was superb!!!!
Our guide was very knowledgeable, personable and made our tour a highlight of our vacation in Spain.
This tour was much better than expected. The Prado guide was top notch and a highlight of our visit to Madrid. I liked that the city sightseeing part of the tour stopped at enough places for photo ops and enjoying the scenery. Well worth the money.
Great tour and guidance, th bus was very confortable and the guide provided fun and interesting information about the city and history
City tour guide was very well informed and shared interesting facts about the city. My Prado guide was very good and guided us through the most important pieces in the museum.
We very much enjoyed the bus tour of the city. We especially liked getting off the bus at various sites that allowed time for picture taking. The highlight was the "Skip the Line Tour" at the Prado. Our guide, Carmen, was outstanding. We felt like we had the finest art history lesson ever. She really made the art come alive!
Great tour, special thank you to our tour guide. The only one negative memory about the bus leaving without us, although we were 5' late. It would be nice to be called by Julia's office and informed about that.
A must-do tour. Get to the office early as there is often very busy with multiple tours.
The bus tour guide was OK but the one showing us around the Prado Museum was brilliant.
Your tour finishes at the Prado and I would highly recommend going to Retiro Park nearby.
This is a great way to achieve an overview of Old Madrid to use for further exploration. Not to be overlooked is the guide for the Museo Prada - not only is there an explanation of what you are seeing, but you get ahead of the line which can be BLOCKS long. One can also reenter the Museo later in the day.
Absolutely excellent. Very well organised. Prado tour exceptional.
This tour was fantastic. The first part of the tour is mostly via bus. A tour guide takes you all over the city and explains the history of the city and points out major landmarks and points of interest. The information provided during the tour was interesting and definitely helped us come up with walks and areas to investigate for our remaining days in Madrid. The Prado Museum was definitely the highlight. I truly believe that the only way to really tour a museum as big as the Prado is to have a guide. Our guide was so helpful in explaining the historical significance in some of the works in the museum and was just phenomenal all around. The nicest part is that after the guided tour, you can stay in the museum as long as you want. We were able to leave and have lunch and come back to tour the museum some more on our own
excellent value tour. greast to see all of Madrid before deciding what to do ourselves
The whole experience was wonderful. To see all of Madrid in one trip and then to have a whistle stop tour of the Prado was just a perfect way to plan our stay working out what and where we wanted to go and spend more time seeing rather than just aimlessly walking round looking for places to see. We ended up having a whole day in the Prado as we wanted to see more of the art. I recommend this tour to anyone.
This was a great trip! It helped us become acquainted with the city so that we could better plan the rest of the time. The office is very convenient and we had no trouble getting to the pick-up site.
well done. Our guide was excellent, experienced, knowledgable and very helpful.
Well organized and good coverage of subjects. I would like to commend our special guide for the Prado segment of our tour. She was very professional and happy to be with.
First class tour, and the guide in El Prado was superb, a private tour around the most important pictures with her was something money can't buy. Learnt more about El Greco, Goya and Velasquez than I have in a lifetime of visiting museums.
Take this tour. It is a great overview of Madrid, its palaces, architecture and art galleries with some walking in order to experience the small winding streets and plazas. The quick entry into the Prado (skip the line) is particularly useful but the best part was the guided tour where we saved hours trying to find the key artists and their masterpieces. Our guide spent extra time with us (4 people!) and we learned so much about each artist and the period in which he painted.
