This tour goes through the Prado Museum highlights. There are more than one thousand paintings inside (no, we didn't make a mistake, that's the truth), so we can't explore it all, nevertheless, we provide the base for you to go on your own after the visit. That's why we like to describe this as a didactic tour.
However, if you're an Art Pro, we've got good news: since we're going to be only 6 people, you can choose what to see and make requests, and that's why we like to describe this as a flexible tour.
If you are coming in a bigger group, send a mail and we'll arrange the visit.
