Overview

Beat the crowds with this tour of the Royal Palace of Madrid before public opening hours. Breeze in and follow your guide through parts of the "Palacio de Oriente" that most visitors don't get to see. Marvel at the collection of weapons in the Royal Armory, take in the Throne Room, and more. Along the way, learn about the history of the Spanish royal family through your guide's engaging narrative.
  • Early access tour means no waiting in line
  • Learn about the history of the Spanish monarchy from your bilingual guide
  • See portions of the palace that regular visitors don't have access to
  • Walk through the lush Campo del Moro

Why Travelers Choose This Tour

Early access means you’ll save yourself roughly an hour of waiting in line and have the residence to explore without the crowds. Photography inside the palace is prohibited, but its gardens — where you’ll conclude your tour — offer plentiful photo ops.
Make your way to the Royal Palace of Madrid, or the Palacio Real de Madrid, located in the western part of downtown Madrid. 

Arrive before the palace is open to the general public; meet your guide and breeze right through the entrance without waiting.

Marvel at the rich decorative materials used all over the castle; Spanish marble, rich mahogany and ornate windows. Walk past extensive frescoes painted by Spanish masters like Mengs, Tiepolo and Giaquinto. Learn about how the palace's decorative style has changed over the years since its construction in the 18th century. 

Visit the Royal Armory, a repository for an astonishing array of weapons, including shields and suits of armor. See the well-preserved official lounges, each decorated in a different style. Walk past the rows of bottles and containers in the Royal Pharmacy, where you will learn about 18th century medicinal practices. Feast your eyes on the opulent Throne Room, the seat of the Spanish monarchy for centuries. 

Leave the palace itself for a relaxing stroll through the Campo del Moro, an English-style garden with wonderful views of the city. Break out your camera for photos of the 2 neo-classical fountains, 'Palacio de las Conchas' and 'the Tritons', before wrapping up your tour.

Awesome tour - beat the crowds and see the palace in peace!

Fantastic tour! Getting on an early morning tour was the best idea because the palace was virtually deserted - so we basically had the whole place to ourselves! Our group consisted of Spanish and English speaking tourists so our fabulous guide explained everything in both languages! And because we were there early with only 1 other tour group, we were able to take our time. Highly recommend taking this tour - you won't regret it! The palace is absolutely stunning - only downside is we couldn't take photos in the most stunning rooms :( Otherwise loved every minute of it! Thank you!

Early access to the Royal Palace is a must if you want to save time (alot of time). Also, no one at the Palace 0900 as the Palace opens to public at 1000. Well worth the money.

The early access to the palace is very good as it was quite crowded by the time we were done. With the early access you are almost done the tour before the crowds are let in. Out guide was informative.

All about the early access

The early access is what made this worth it, as later in the day, the line was around the courtyard. Our tour guide was a bit disappointing though, as he was very difficult to understand since he was muffled in the bad headset and spoke softly. Also, he would walk way ahead of the group, not paying attention to when we were taking pics, and ended up blocking a lot of the views.

Dear customer many thanks for taking the time to give us your impressions. We are really sorry about the listening problems in the Palace. We will keep working on giving the best experience. Best regards AMIGO GROUP

Fantastic tour. Great guide, skip the 3 hr line, get in and get out in 2 hrs, but pricey, since on your own is 15E instead of 55E.

Han our guide did a really good job leading us. He is knowledgeable and patiently answered all our questions. Our only criticism is that he had to conduct it in both English and Spanish due to the makeup of the group. That serves to slow things down. Bob and Peg Ellwanger
