Overview

Discover the grandiose Royal Palace of Madrid with special early access and a 1.5-hour guided tour. For a glimpse of the palace at its most spectacular, you’ll arrive before the doors open to the public, then learn the secrets of the enormous palace, whose 2,800 rooms overflow with masterpiece artwork, period décor, and architectural detail. This 1.5-hour Royal Palace tour includes skip-the-line early admission tickets to the Royal Palace.
  • 1.5-hour guided tour of the Royal Palace of Madrid
  • Early access and skip-the-line entrance included
  • See the official home of the Spanish royal family
  • Explore a grand palace with ornate architecture
  • Take in artwork and historic decor
  • Family friendly
Make your way to a central location in Madrid, where you’ll meet a guide at 8:45 for the short walk to the Royal Palace. Arriving at the palace before the doors open for general admission, you’ll walk right into the official residence of the Spanish royal family without waiting in line.

Built in the ornate Italianate baroque style, the Royal Palace is one of Madrid’s top sites, and even a 1.5-hour tour of the building covers just a fraction of the thousands of rooms. As you walk with the guide, you’ll learn about the building’s architecture and remarkable treasures, from Goya paintings to Stradivarius violins, suits of armor, and royal crown collection.

The Royal Palace of Madrid has a royal pharmacy, a grand throne room, and a royal library, as well as special apartments for members of the royal family. Your guide will also describe the modern-day royal events that still take place in the palace, from dinner parties to royal audiences. The 1.5-hour tour concludes on the grounds of the palace, close to restaurants, public transit, and top attractions in central Madrid.

This is a great tour. You are on before the crowds. The headphones let you hear well. Beautiful palace. You can stay at the palace after the tour and go back to some rooms, or to the armory. We walked next door to the cathedral and then to the crypto

The guide was not one we would ever get again. We had booked the English Language tour. There were 6 people from Peru who spoke Spanish. The rest 20 people did not. They told the guide they were ok in English as they had booked this tour. The guide decided to speak pretty much most of the tour in Spanish, and only to them, stopping at times to paraphrase the same thing into English for the rest of us. Sometimes he would speak in Spanish and then continue in English, expecting everyone else to understand what he said. We pretty much learned nothing and would never book with this company. There were two other tours, one with Americans, where we inched closer to hear their guide what she was saying in English to get a better idea. The other tour was for a Japanese group, where the guide ONLY spoke in Japanese, like we had expected our guide to speak in English.

STOP READING AND BOOK THIS TOUR!!!! This was one of the highlights of my multi country trip to Europe, do not miss this spectacular palace. It was super easy and very organized when we checked in, and doing the early entrance made the palace virtually empty as we walked through. Our guide was fabulous and the palace is spectacular. Other reviews complained that the tour was in English and Spanish which is ridiculous -- having the explanations in two languages actually gives you more time to admire each room. The guide made everything come to life and gave us an understanding we never would have had on our own. I can't say enough how worth it is to book this tour.

Our guide Barbara was wonderful. So knowledgeable and a sense of humor
Fascinating tour. So glad we did the early before the big crowds

The tour was to be in English, but instead it was in both Spanish and English. As a result, a lot of time was wasted to hear the explanation in another language. Also, the tour was rushed and no time was provided for people to ask questions.

I was not very pleased with this tour. It was great to be able to get in early, however, the tour guide was not very knowledgeable in comparison to many of the other tours we have taken. When we asked questions, we got limited detail, even though my husband and I were the only two people on the tour. In this instance, we would have been better off on our own.

If you plan to visit this Royal Palace of Madrid, a guided tour is must, otherwise there is no point. Guide was extremely good and made the tour memorable.

Fast paced and sufficient for palace enthusiasts like us. Worth the early rise and extra money. The lines outside were ridiculous. Do it!
