This was good. There is so much in the Prado that having a guide and skipping any lines was very helpful.
Excellent guide showed us the highlights. Focused on Velasquez artwork but told us where to find other works during free time. No line up the day we went but other days when we passed by there were really long lines so tour was worth it.
The tour was wonderful. The guide was well informed and we learned a lot.
The line at the Prado was quite long when we entered and when we left, so we were glad we chose this tour. There were about a dozen people in our group, and it was a good size. I wish I new our guide's name as she was absolutely fantastic. She explained artists - particular three well-known Spanish artists - in a way that made us understand their work better. I can now recognize the work of one of them simply by looking at one of his paintings, and I've found I want to know more about his work. We are not big art enthusiasts, but we try to visit the big museums when in cities with world-renowned museums. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit here and would highly recommend this tour.
The quide was very knowledgable. I am glad that we have booked this tour. Prado is a such large museum. Without this guided tour I would not know where to start with and I would prpbably missed many highlights.
Le guide,tout à fait connaissant,nous a fait la visite en un peu moins de 2 heures et avons eu une idée générale de ce musée avec ses pièces maitresses.
Bien sur ce n'est qu' aperçu .
The Prado is one of the greatest art museums in the world. We also went the next day during the late day free admission period.
The meeting place with the guide before the tour was very confusing though.
EXCELLENT! VERY INSTRUCTIVE. THE GUIDE WAS OUTSTANDING!!!! A MUST!!!
Do not waste your time in trying to find your way around the Prado. This was the best decision we made. The guide was well versed in history and art. We saw all of the major works on our list and learned a good deal about how the major Spanish artists compared with one another, fit into the history of art and their time. Very good tour.
Very nice, guide very professional , we enjoy it every minute. Thank you for good time.
Wonderful tour guide who managed a tour in both English and Spanish. The brevity of the tour was perfect for our family. We hit the highlights and enjoyed the history behind the artists' work we saw.
What a great experience! Well worth the price to skip the line - which was substantial. The tour guide was absolutlely phenomenal; knowlegable, well-spoken and with a great sense of humor. She was able to hit all the Prado highlights and provide a real sense of the art and the role of the artist within their time. Just a fabulous experience.. Highly recommend!
Great trip. Our guide was fluent in English (she switched between the English and Spanish speaking group members) and was very knowledgeable about the history of the artwork and the Prado museum itself. Our free time after the tour was ideal to go back and revisit the works at a more leisurely pace. Highly recommend it for first time visitors to the Prado.
I am glad we didn't have to stand in the queue - it was by far too hot!. Our guide spoke excellent English and was very knowledgeable. He made use of headphones, even though we were a small group, so that everyone could hear him.
Well worth the money.

This was an excellent look at great works of Goya, El Greco and Velazquez, with unexpected insight into art history by the guide. We learned so much more than just a do-it-yourself look at renowned pieces.
An excellent tour guide who explained the paintings made this a memorable visit.
Excellent tour. My guide was very knowledgeable and shared a lot of great information with us.
