My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed EVERY minute of this superb show.
The passion and pride of every performer including the singers and musicians was second to none.
Not only will I highly recommend this show I will say, "A visit to Madrid is not complete without seeing it".

Very nice to see Madrid during the night. Flamenco show a bit long and started a bit late, but worth it. Very entertaining. They even dropped everyone off at their respective hotels! Super, since it was late and we were tired.

Although Ileana was a very good guide the evening tour is not so special, particularly if you'd been already in hop-on hop-off. Flamenco was really a delight, it's a must for Madrid

The city looks amazingly different during the night time. This tour is not to be missed. We enjoyed the cultural Flamenco show. If a meal is not ordered you had to wait for others to eat their meal before the show. Would have been nice to do something during that time. Was enjoyable otherwise.

Dinner was multi-course and very good. The bottle of wine was left at our table. We were the only people having dinner, which is served on a balcony on the side of the stage. Fortunately we were right by the window so had a great view. If we had been at the other end of the table we would have felt gypped. The dances were ongoing and very good.

This was a great show with lots of dancing. Once you are in, they let you stay as long as you want. The only problem is that they seat you away from the main stage in the room on the side. But, the dancing was great and I recommend the sangria.

good show but required more waiters to serve all the guests.I suggest you have a meal before the show or you will end up hungry.We tried in vain to get more drinks and dessert- failed miserably!

Previous reviews about this tour being confusing held true. They combined several different "groups" with different timings together, so the directions/instructions and tickets they were passing out were indeed confusing, and the guide was not so good with English. We ended up getting to the Torres Bermejas about 10 minutes after the show had started, and were taken up to a high room off to the side, which was too warm and stuffy and arranged such that we had difficulty seeing what was left of the show; then, we waited at least 20 to 25 minutes before being served our drink. The show is definitely worth seeing, especially the male dancer at the end, but I'd recommend just booking the show itself separately and skipping this "tour". I can't answer for how the food is at the restaurant, since we didn't have the meal.

The tour was great, enjoyed the flamenco show, the only negative was the tour guide, she was very hard to understand, her english was not up to the job.

The flamenco was fantastic and quite a spectacular experience. The illuminated tour beforehand was very disappointing due to the continuous repetition of the tour guide about the cathedral and the numerous restaurants in Madrid.

It was not dark yet, so didn't see "Illluminations" but since we stayed near the Plaza de Espana and walked everywhere, this gave a us a good overview tour of Madrid. The Flamenco show was good if you haven't seen it before. I must say they did dance with passion!!!

The tour was less than I expected, the bus was comfortable but the tour itself drove too fast by the points of interest. The flamenco dancing was amazing however the dinner was gross. It was not even edible.

The illuminations tour was a waste of time. We already has seen the town from the hop on, hop off touring bus so we ended up seeing the same sights that we had seen earlier in the day. And the illuminations part was a joke. The tour was done in the evening prior to dusk so none of the monuments were lit up. Regarding the Flamenco show, we had a great time. The fact that we had purchased dinner enabled us to sit closer than the people that had just purchased a drink. The show was splendid. The music and dancers were outstanding. We had to find our own way back to the hotel. Alls well that ends well but I have to say that this tour was poorly run. It seemed like the viato agent didn't really know what to do. They were making in up on the fly. My recommendation is just to find the Flamenco club on your own and enjoy the evening.
