Begin your 7.5-hour combination tour with hotel pickup at your accommodation in Madrid. Climb into a comfortable tour vehicle and set out for the Royal Site of San Lorenzo de El Escorial, an historical residence of the King of Spain. 

Upon arrival, disembark for a tour of the royal site, which functions as a school, museum, royal palace, and monastery. Walk through the two distinct architectural complexes, which contain the royal hunting lodge and monastic retreat and the royal monastery. You'll explore the Basilica, the Chapterhouses, the Pantheons of the Royal Family, the Palace of Philip II, the Cloister of the Four Evangelists, and the Monastery. 

Continue to your next stop, the Catholic basilica called the Valley of the Fallen. This monument was erected at the behest of General Franco to honor those who were killed during the Spanish Civil War. Enjoy the alpine scenery in the Mountains of Guadarrama, home to a cross that is more than 490 feet (150 meters) high. Visit the Valley itself and the interior of the Basilica. 

Head back to Madrid for a 2.5-hour sightseeing tour via coach. You'll see all the most important landmarks and highlights of the Spanish capital, including Columbus Square, the Bull Ring, the Puerta de Alcalá, the Puerta del Sol, Calle Mayor, the Plaza de España, and the Gran Vía. Stop for an included soft drink at the Hard Rock Café, then continue past the fountain of Cibeles, Plaza Castilla, The Real Madrid Stadium, and Paseo de la Castellana.
