Our guide Alicia spoke excellent English. She led us with great expertise to selected masterpieces, gave information about the concrete works as well as the painters and their art-historical environment. This was embedded in an exciting narrative with some unexpected "candy". Highly Recommended! But be careful: the price for the tour does not include admission!

Absolutely perfect guide. In 2 hours we had a very good cultural tour of the Prado and its main works. We learned a lot from Laeticia, an art historian. Excellent guide. Lots of anecdotes about the paintings. We were delighted! I highly recommend this visit. For the most passionate and less tired, do the one in 3 hours.
