    What to Expect
    Explore the incredible cultural treasures, amazing architecture and fascinating history of Madrid during this 4-hour combined coach sightseeing tour and skip-the-line visit to the Prado Museum. If you're looking for a big dose of Madrid culture in a short period of time, this excursion combining two of the city's most popular stand-alone tours is a great option.
    Spend your morning exploring some of Madrid’s most famous attractions on a 3-hour sightseeing trip via luxury coach bus. During your trip you’ll learn about the city’s incredible wealth of architecture and history, starting with the city’s Moorish quarter before continuing to the neighborhood of Los Austrias, which is known for its importance to Habsburg-era Madrid. Check out the city’s iconic Plaza Mayor and then make a stop at Madrid’s Royal Palace. Proceed next to the more modern section of Madrid, traveling down Gran Via, passing through the trendy Salamanca district and stopping by Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, home to the Real Madrid football club. Then take a 2-hour break before continuing your afternoon tour.
    In the afternoon you’ll meet your guide in front of the Prado Museum, skipping the line with a priority-access ticket. During your visit you’ll follow your guide as they explain some of the museum’s most famous works, including Bosch’s The Garden of Earthly Delights, El Greco’s The Annunciation, Velazquez’s Las Meninas and Goya’s The Family of Carlos IV, among others.

    This was a quick overview of the various sights in Madrid. The guide was OK - her attitude on that day seemed as if she didn't want to be there. This was a good, quick easy way to see many sites in a couple of...More

    Madrid was made more special because of our Skip-the-Line Prado Museum Tour! The lady tour guide of Julia Travel is very adept and so well-informed of the vast artwork in the museum. Unforgettable tour really! We felt so special!

    The tour by bus was as promised giving a good orientation of Madrid but the Prado tour with the guide Carmen was outstanding We learned more in the 2 hours than a college art appreciation class of many years ago

    The first part of this tour was not so good. We were on a nice air conditioned bus but you couldn’t see anything out the windows. We also stopped at 3 of the strangest places - not the places you typically think of when you...More

    Hi, I believe Guernica is at the Sofia Reina Museum. The Prado is amazing and I wouldn’t miss it or the Thyssen which is across the street.
