What people are saying about Museo del Prado
On a Sunday morning at 10AM, didn’t really need this Skip the Line pass since there was no line. The intention is for easy access and that have been helpful later in day since there were definitely crowds.
Marta was exceptional in her knowledge and passion for art and we feel fortunate to have had her as our guide. Our request was to focus on the Spanish artists. We enjoy history and learning the Spanish monarchy over those centuries is daunting. She aptly tied the Spanish chronological history with the artists. Additionally we appreciated the way that she took us thru the floors to explain the Goya period.
We would highly recommend to everyone visiting Prado for the first time to use this type of guided tour. We were a group of 7 people and our tour guide (sorry, we could not remember his name) did a great presentation of some of the best paintings and shared the stories about the painters and the time they lived in. We would not be able to get the same introduction to this incredible museum on our own or even with an self audio guide. Great value for a price we paid!
Her knowledge of historical context was very interesting and she was always sensitive to our needs.
Our guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We enjoyed the tour very much - the time allocated to each museum was ideal, and there was enough time in between for a coffee!
