We had the best time on this tour. I loved the Prado museum. We also took all day Madrid city tour which was excellent! !
Excellent overview of the city and the skip the line at the museum was a real benefit!
Wonderful tour of the best museums in Madrid! Our guild was extreamly knowledgeable, knew her art history very well, and answered all questions. I recommend!
My wife and I toured the Prado Museum calssical art and the Queen Sofia museum modern art with a small group. Our tour guide spoke in both English and Spanish and answered each and every question we had. We had a particular interest in Fra Angelico and Murillo which were not part of the official tour but our guide was kind enough to direct us to the paintings we wanted to see. Seeing famous works of art by Velazquez, Bosch, Goya and El Greco were a wonderful treat. We could have stayed there for the whole day. We did go on to visit the Queen Sofia and see Picasso's Guernica, but that is really the only interest we had in going there.
Irene is an amazing guide. We have enjoyed both museum. She explained us all the details of the paintings she was showing us and she gave us many pieces of advice very interesting.
I suggest this tour to everybody. Also Irene is very passionate and you can see she loves her job.
This tour was fabulous. Our tour guide, Irene, was very knowledgeable highlighting essential pieces from both museums. I would highly recommend working this tour in during your trip to Madrid.
A great way to see Madrid when you only have a short time there. The tour of the Prado was the best thing we could have done. There were long long lines waiting to get in and we just passed them by. Our tour guide was very interesting and certainly knew the Prado and its contents inside and out. Having someone discuss the more important paintings in detail certainly makes for a much better tour.
Need better headsets
Have to hold the earphone like a telephone and it gets tiring..
Otherwise pretty good overview of a very large museum.
Carmen our guide was knowledgeable and the Guide at the zPrado Museum was also very good
The guide Irene was great. The only thing is it is not early access to the museum. It opens at 10 and we met at 9:45, Irene went and got the tickets and then we waited on line until the museum opened at 10 am for everyone.
This tour is good. We wish there was more time spent for the Prado Museum. Tour guide was excellent. The tour lasted early and did not go full 5 hours.
The tour guide was not assertive enough and many groups moved in front of us and cut the line to Museo del Prado. Even the general line entered more quickly than we did. She was very knowledgeable once inside so we were glad to have someone lead us around, but again, she wasn't able to get the best positions in many of the rooms because other groups would butt in and talk over her. We walked a long way to the Reina Sofia and by this point we were tired, and our feet hurt! The Picasso Guernica was all we wanted to see in the Reina Sofia, and we were glad we went, but it was a bit too much to do in one morning.
Nice tour but 2 negatives stuck out. First, on the 3 hour tour of Madrid, we spent 30 minutes of it at a Hard Rock Cafe for pit stop and soft drinks. That seemed a bit much. On the Prado tour, we were told we'd have 90 minutes on a guided tour of the Prado and we spent less than an hour in it.
Great Tour, thanks to the guide we have learned a lot about the Prado and Reina Sofia museum. Our teenager kids were amazed with the explanations and knowledge of our guide. This is highly recommended tour.
Irene was a wonderfully knowledgable guide and gave us a really good introduction to the Prado and Reina Sofia

A wonderful guide who was knowledgeable about all aspects of both the Prado and the Reina Sofia museums.
Well worth the tour to skip the lines at the Prado and have an experienced guide take us to the highlights in a way that helped us appreciate the evolution of art styles during that time period. After some free time in the Prado, we took a short walk to the Reina Sofia and saw the cubist and surrealist movements in modern art. Highlight was Guernica, and the guide's explanation of what was happening at the time during the Civil War and the bombing in Guernica made it all the better. Her explanation of the theories of what Picasso was painting were fascinating.
Great tour especially thanks to our guide Luis David. Apart from his great knowledge in history, he also provided very interesting stories and legends about Retiro. No rush, pleasant pace. Being this week El Bosco exposition in Prado, skip the line was great advantage.
I really enjoyed this tour led by a former art history student and she was able to score some tickets to the special Bosch exhibit which was unexpected and great and fit perfoectly between the Prado ytour and the Reina Sophia tour.
This was a great introduction to Madrid and the Skip -the- Line Prado worked well for us as we got a very informed introduction to a number of the most well known art works. For art lovers you were then able to stay on and discover more on your own.
Glad we booked this tour in advance as people we knew said they had to queue for an hour and it was a very warm day. You need to balance the cost though as it was much cheaper to queue, but having the English-speaking guided tour was a big advantage in getting inside the Prado was prompt and we were shown all the major masterpieces without having to work your way around the different rooms. We stayed on after the tour to see more of the Prado.
