Peruse its collections of European art that span periods from the 12th to 20th centuries, and listen to your guide’s commentary to learn about the Spanish Royal Collection.
After the Prado, you’ll continue to the nearby Reina Sofia Museum for a 1.5-hour tour.

Check out Renaissance treasures and the cultural phenomenon of Pop art, and see countless portraits and landscape paintings. Your Golden Triangle art tour then ends around 5pm.

See above comment: This voucher was the fourth person ticket
Kahn was delightful, knowledgeable and very pleasant. As a docent in a major museum in Charleston, SC, I know great when I see it. Kahn was so well informed and such a professional. My only criticism is it would have been better to provide transportation between buildings. A truly perfect tour.
Good value. Informed guide. Wish the tour was in English-only for our group instead of two languages as we spend half the time disengaged when it wasn't our language instead of possibly seeing and hearing about additional pieces of art. Prado and Sofia are must sees. The Thyssen was removed from our triangle.
