Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

Look for Madrid’s unusual Bear and Strawberry Tree statue at the Puerta del Sol stop on this tour. This quirky bear is the city's official symbol, and well worth a photo or two.

What You Can Expect

Madrid Hop-on Hop-off Tour

See the sights of Madrid City on an enjoyable hop-on hop-off tour

Take a seat on an open-top double-decker bus for a 1- or 2-day sightseeing tour of Madrid that lets you create your own itinerary. This hop-on hop-off Madrid bus tour offers 37 stops along two routes that interconnect around the city — your ticket is valid on both. 
Remain on the bus for each loop while you listen to onboard commentary via an audio headset, or hop on and off at any stop to explore city sights on your own (admission fees are not included).
Follow Route 1 (Blue Route) to view the Belle Epoque buildings of historical Madrid. Disembark to explore the Royal Palace, Almudenao Cathedral and the Prado museum, or admire the Gran Vía, Madrid’s main thoroughfare.
Switch to Route 2 (Green Route) to focus on 19th- and 20th-century Madrid. Travel past skyscrapers and the legendary Bernabéu stadium — home to Real Madrid FC — along the Paseo de la Castellana. Perhaps stroll through the elegant bourgeois enclave of Salamanca, or visit the city’s many museums with a focus on archaeology, sculpture, natural science and more.

Great way to cover Madrid if you don't have a lot of time. It was perfect but the first route did not seem as regular as the second route but that could be just me. I would still book this excursion though.

Great way to see the city. I would recommend getting the tasting package. It allows you to go down streets that you would otherwise miss. Ask about the extended routes and enjoy.

I thought it would be necessary to take 2 days for the new and old section. Not necessary. One day is plenty. Madrid is not that big after all. We did the two lines in one day and had enough time to spend over an hour in the El Retiro park. I suggest you only take one day.
