What People Are Saying About Museo del Prado
The Prado has endlessly long queues but we got in first and had very knowledgeable guides who spoke English fluently and gave comprehensive background history on the paintings viewed. I think it would be quite impossible to cover some of the most famous paintings without a guide.
I was with all Spanish speaking people and the only one in English but still well catered for. Gave me time to look at other works in between translations.
The masterpieces we viewed were, stunning, the tour guide Minerva was very good. Well done
Very well organized and worth if money paid. You can easily get off the bus especially in Plaza Mayor with different shops around and walk up till Sol area. Amazing
Wonderful museum, collections, special exhibits. Museum staff was confused about our tickets and sent us back and forth between 2 employees. Eventually they let us in. A frustrating and annoying experience for us and them. Don't know if we would use GetYourGuide again
