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.

This trip was sold as English speaking guided tour. however the group was mixed. This has to be explained in advance.

My M.O. upon arrival in a city I've never been to is to take a 2-3 hr narrated bus tour to introduce me to the sites, proximity to hotel and historical importance of things I want to delve more deeply into.
This Viator tour accomplished those needs, but I cannot say anything positive beyond that. The guide was sub-par in communication, and the stop at Hard Rock Madrid was wasting my time, if not insulting to the purposefullness of the tour.

The tour was far too fast to actually appreciate anything along the way. Plus, the English of the tour guide was only passable. You should skip the Hard Rock Cafe...maybe get a drink at a location that is a little more "Spanish". And lastly, the ladies working at the tour operator are rude; I don't think smiling is in their vocabulary.

This tour around Madrid was much below our expectations. It was shorter than advertised and not interesting. Much worse than tours provided by Viator guides in Venice and Florence, which we took this summer when visited Italy.

After waiting for 20 minutes to catch the bus we were off. The tour was to be in English and although the guide spoke English her accent was so thick that it was hard to understand much of what she was saying. It was nice to get an overview of where everything was so I could plan where to go the next day. Although the trip was supposed to be 3 hours it was not. The other guests were dropped off at there origination point and I was expected to get out also. It was a little walk back to my starting point but not to bad. All in all the trip was fine and I would recommend it to anyone. It's a good way to see the city.

The tour was very informative but I think there should be stops were we get off the bus and view the sites to take pictures and embrace the culture for a short period. The stop at Hard Rock Cafe was to short. By the time we walked to Hard Rock from where the bus dropped us off at the break was over. The free drink ticket should also include non alcoholic beverages, I don't drink so I had to pay for an ice tea.
