I didn’t realize this was a bilingual tour. Most of the other tours had separate English and Spanish tours. I felt bad for the tour guide having to say everything twice in both languages. Worth being able to skip the line but I wouldn’t do...More
This is still a living and working royal palace. It is one of the few where the royal family still occupies the site. The structure itself if very impressive, but they also do a great job of offering decorative rooms, and royal items for you...More

Beatrice will love to hear that, thank you so much for the review!
This was a goods tour to go on. It was short 1.5-2hrs. However I think it would be best to do this as a package deal. Like the palace and a museum or a discounted ticket. Definitely worth skipping the line for. They don't tell...More
We booked the tour couple of months in advance and were ready for a great experience since we’ve mostly had positive experiences with Viator. This one has made us change our opinion...
The tour guide, Barbara, was on time as instructed in our voucher sporting...More
We used Viator to book a tour of the Royal Palace of Madrid. The supplier for this tour was Pancho Tours. We arrived at the meeting point 15 minutes before the tour was supposed to start. Since no tour guide showed up at 11:30 a.m.,...More
Previously never sure about guided tours, but this changed my mind. Extremely knowledgeable guide (Catherine - sorry if I’ve got the name a bit wrong or mis-spelled), who kept us fully informed and entertained in both Spanish and English. The Palace is vast and although...More
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as
desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
