What People Are Saying About Museo del Prado
We took both Tours around the City & saw everything in a short Time, because we just stayed for 1 1/2 Days. It was a great way to come around & great to travel through City by 46 Degrees :D
The guide was very good and spoke excellent English and the microphone worked well I would recommend it to anyone.
Get there early and buy your ticket online. You will still be in a queue but one queue instead of two.
Our guide David was informative, humorous and passionate about the city of Madrid and its historic relevance in Europe and its citizens. We covered some ground and experienced Madrid through the context of its architecture, art and people. Just wish I would have taken a similar bike tour in Barcelona instead of wasting my time and money on a hop on/hop off bus!
I was too tired to be in a queue! There was a lot of people the day we visited The prado Museum. Afterwards we made a search at google we met "get your guide" so we decided not to stay on that big queue by buying a ticket on line. Everything went perfect! Just we download one ticket valid for two and the museum staff had some problem to realize it was one for two instead of two as he usually accepts from tourists!
