Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Skip the Line: Prado Museum Express Ticket and Tour in Madrid. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
Going to an art museum like the Prado, it is easy to be overwhelmed by the quantity of work. Having a guide who is going to point out approximately 25 works that are the "highlights" of the massive collection and then having time to wander through the museum at your leisure is really the way to go.
Again if you come to madrid you have to visit prado and there was only 2 of us on the tour with a very knowledgeable guide
Our tour of the Prado was a wonderful experience. The tour focused El Greco, Goya, and Velasquez. Our tour guide was very knowledgable about Spanish art history. She engaged the group with insightful questions and encouraged group participation and interpretation.
Our guide was lovely and did everything she could to make our experience one to remember. The Prado Cafe is excellent too.
Excellent art historian took us around the museum in a very small group it was great
This was a great value. My husband and I are not all that into art, so in addition to skipping the line, our guide made of time here very worthwhile. The museum is, of course, amazing, but we would not have appreciated what it has to offer without the guide.
The tour was excellent. Actually was a 4.5 not a 5 as above but it doesn't let you change the rating once entered. Guide was knowledgeable and English was good. Only concern was he kept losing people on the tour along the way; would suggest that guides need to count their group each time they move on to a new location in the Alhambra and make sure everyone in the group is with them before they move on. Also, there seemed to be a lot of problems with the headset, even before we started the tour so it made us get started late. Will continue to be a Viator customer and have recommended to others.
Once we located our tour guide. We immediately went inside the museum. Our guide was very knowledgable of a lot of the art work and stories of famous artist. No photos are allowed inside the Prado. But plenty to photograph on the outside. Once our guide was finished with her guided part. We still had plenty of time to see all other art works. This is a must see for all art lovers.
I really enjoyed the tour of the Prado Museum. There´s a separate entrance for the skip the line, which is great, as there was a pretty long queue at the main entrance! The guide was really entertaining, he really knew what he was talking about and he told us lots of stories and anectodes. The guided visit lasts 1.5hrs, but I enjoyed it so much it felt more like 30 minutes! We could stay at the end of the tour as well to continue visiting the museum on our own, as the museum is massive.
It's ok, but there was no line to skip. Our guide Isabella was very informative and really showed us the heart of the museum. Not sure what audio guide would have given but she was great.
My 3 traveling companions and I enjoyed our Skip the Line Tour of The Prado in Madrid very much. The guide was very knowledgeable and pointed out many interesting things about the paintings we saw. He kept the group together and was attentive to those who needed help. After the guided tour we stayed to see other areas of the museum not on the guided tour.
Another great tour from Viator! It started on time, covered a lot of material and our excellent guide really knew her stuff and conveyed it with passion.
We were met promptly by our guide Nooria (not sure of spelling). She proved extremely knowledgeable, was most personable, and gave as good a tour of a large museum collection as I have ever had. The tour ended much too soon, but we were grateful for guidance about how to proceed on our own.
