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.

We use the hop-on hop-off bus tours of most cities we visit as it gives us a good overview of the city and lets us know where we want to spend more time. We always recommend these to friends.

One of the best ways to travel around Madrid. We did both day and night trips - twice. Well worth it

Riding up on top offered great photo opportunities a great way to explore the highlights of Madrid. We got off the Royal Palace stop and the Botanical Garden stop which is near the Prado Museum grounds. The audio plugs on the tour bus did not work well but it didn't deter from the experience.

Great tour we were lucky enough to catch the extended tour on route 1. Both routes are great. After seeing the bull ring on the extended tour we went back the next day and toured it.
