Overview
Visit Madrid’s top sights with a 1- or 2-day, hop-on hop-off bus ticket that lets you see the city your way. Board the double-decker, open-top bus and set off on Route One, Route Two—or both. Learn about Madrid’s history using a complimentary, onboard headset. Disembark to visit museums, landmarks, plazas, and theaters, and explore the Spanish capital using the guidebook and map provided.
Highlights
  • Comprehensive hop-on hop-off tour of Madrid offers two route options
  • See the city from an open-top bus and choose from several sightseeing stops
  • Select a 1-day or 2-day ticket to further customize your Madrid itinerary
  • Includes audio headset, tour stop guidebook, map, and attraction discounts
What to Expect
Hop aboard an open-top, double-decker sightseeing bus frequently from morning to evening and set off on Route One or Route Two through Madrid. Choose a 1-day or 2-day ticket option and create your own experience by selecting from multiple available sights along two separate routes (single ticket valid for either route). Along the way, use your personal headset to hear commentary (available in several languages) about Madrid’s history and landmarks. On the Blue Route (Route One), take in old Madrid’s architecture and hop off at highlights such as the Prado Museum, the Royal Palace, and the Gran Vía promenade. Along the Green Route (Route Two), see modern Madrid’s Santiago Bernabéu stadium and explore one of the city’s ancient plazas like Puerta del Sol. Alternatively, remain onboard for the entire route and simply enjoy the scenery. Admission to sights is additional, but the tour includes discount vouchers for Madrid attractions, and a bus-stop guidebook and map.

This is a good way to see Madrid. There are two routes, one for the historic route and one for the modern route. Route 1 is longer than route 2. Both are worth doing in one day. I'd start from Puerta del Sol. Just get a ticket from one of the kiosks in the square (i needed

What a nightmare!! Waiting times to get on the buses were heaps longer than suggested. When a bus did eventually come, it would let people off but then tell us they were to full to take more passengers. We then had to wait for the next bus to come. This happened several times.

Dear Tanya M, Thank you for your review. I am very sorry the service did not live up to your expectations, since one of our main priorities is to be able to show the beautiful town of Madrid in a comfortable and fast way for those people who have little time in the city. Thus, we try to adapt the service as much as we can to the circumstances that unfortunately exist in the city, such as the constant streets closure due to construction or the horrible traffic. For this reason you probably had to wait longer than desired at some stops. I hope you can give us a second chance on your next visit! Sincerely, Antonio B.

Took the bus tour during our stay in Madrid and really enjoyed the experience. Since we were at the first departing spot early, we were the first ones on the bus, therefore nabbing the best seats on the bus, which are the second floor up front, so I was able to film a lot of

I had a 2 day pass in Feb and found it to be pretty good. I was always able to get on the bus and didn't have to wait long at all for one to show up. The commentary was a bit haphazard and disconnected so didn't really listen to it. Good way to see the city if you're new to it.
