If you want quick overview of Madrid in less than 3 hours this will do, but just had a feeling we were missing some key sights. Tour guide was good'' but the English speakers seemed to get the short end of the conversations several times.
We arrived thirty minutes late for this tour. The Travel agency arranged for us to join the tour as the bus was proceeding slowly through Madrid's holiday traffic at 345pm Sunday. We met the bus about 10 minutes walk from the our original meeting place and as the group was just coming back from a trip to the Mercado de San Miguel. The travel guide was good and was providing the tour in Spanish and in English. We made two fifteen minute stops at the Columbus plaza and at the Bullfight stadium for pictures if you wanted to do so. She would point out the Prado, and the other significant buildings. She pointed out the reason for the Sunday traffic, being the beginning of the long holiday season for the locals beginning with the Feast of the Immaculate COnception and then Christmas. It was early December and the day is short and by 5:00 one can hardly see the buildings but we stayed in the street longer until they turned the Holidays lights on in the streets and in the Plazas.
The bus was luxurious and well appointed. Maybe the experience would have been different if we had come earlier to start the tour at the Royal Palace. We should have joined the 11 am tour. Traffic would have been less and we would have had better views.
Disappointed with Julia's Travel guide on this afternoon tour. Although it was a rainy Friday afternoon, and we saw everything as indicated on the tour, she made no effort to make our group's experience a positive one. We were dropped off to fend of ourselves during a 15 minute break to find a coffee and washroom and then when we all returned punctually at the bus, the driver and our guide were no were to be found. Fortunately, we had a fabulous guide from Julia's Travel on another tour the next day!
