The guide was great but too much time was spent on the motorway. I understand that the streets in Madrid itself are very narrow so it's hard for the tour bus to get through but a bit more time around the centre of town would have been nice. Also, perhaps changing having a drink at the Hard Rock Cafe to a more local place would go down better with European/American tourists.
It nice but you can do this by ur self on a hop on hop off bus gives you more time to explore each must see and take pictures
This was an OK tour to get around some of the sites. The tour guide spoke very broken English and often mixed her English and Spanish in one sentence. The tour stopped on a couple of occasions allowing those who wanted to take pictures. Hard to see many of the sites from a bus.
The tour guide was knowledgeable about Madrid. However I would have preferred a different type of bus. The view from inside the bus was not that good and it was hard at times to see what the tour guide was describing. A double decker bus which, from the top of the bus, would have offered a more open view, would have been better.
This tour is a quick way to have an overview of Madrid. The tour guide was quite knowledgeable and helpful.
Was good. Guide was informative and spoke multiple languages. There is so much to see in Madrid so this is just a cursory look. If you have time do the Hop On / Hop Off.
A good tour to start your visit in Madrid and explore the city on your own afterwards.
Good way to see the city and get your first look of Madrid before you venture out on your own.
Nice tour to see the main sites at the city, but you'll have to walk again to some of them if you really want to check them and take better pictures.
Quite an informative tour, but it lasted less than 2 hours. We were led to believe that it would be 3 hours long, so we felt a bit cheated. However, the tour does cover most of the attractions and the guide was very helpful and friendly.
Supposed to be 3 hrs. Was 2 hrs and I reckon we saw some sites twice.
Driver did not stop in areas that we could take a picture and then drove off to fast for us to get the picture we wanted when there were no trees around.

The tour was interesting, but was supposed to be in English, however the guide was Spanish and his English was limited. He explained the tour in Spanish and English, and you could not tell when he switched from Spainish to English because his accent was so thick you could not undetstand him ! ! ! ! !
The tour should allow time to get out walk around and take photos at various sights.
Okay tour, saw the highlights, but no chances for photos, the rain didn't help, but it did give us a good overview of the city.
The trip was around the entire city, which was great, but the bus moved very quickly which made it difficult to really appreciate each stop. The tour guide announced everything twice (once in Spanish and once in English), which also made it difficult to appreciate everything, as by the time she announced it in English we were already moving to the next thing. But it did give a great idea of the city and let me know what I should visit later on foot.
Pretty good for getting to know the city as a whole. It was to last 3 hours, actually it lasted 2 hours and 15 minutes (of which, 25 minutes were spent at the Hard Rock Cafè, which was anyway pretty nice). I wiah we had had more stops (at least 2 more, since we only had one at the Hard Rock) to take pictures.
Our tour guide was awful and it made the whole tour disappointing. We were rushed throughout and she continually scolded the bus drive. The bus driver (Fernan) was amazing. We complained at the local office.
The tour guide can not speak good English. We couldn't understand half of what she said.
Guide was a little too hurried with the tour - threatening if we were in any way late.
I did not come away with a better knowledge of Madrid
Very disappointing tour. The Viator website said this was a 3 hour tour but it was only 2 hours 25 minutes, including a 25 minute stop at the Hard Rock Cafe. Good glimpse into American pop history but strange choice for a tour of Madrid. The guide spoke good English but because there were no other stops or even any opportunities to photograph anything the tour became a little boring. The website advertised a walk through the old part of Madrid but there was no walk, we were on the bus the whole time. It kind of left the impression that there was nothing worth stopping for in this beautiful city. At the end we were dropped at a different part of Madrid to where the tour started and had to find our own way back to our hotel.
