Very complete and super organized, if you travel in winter season it is better because there are not many people and you can see everything super well. The Prado Museum is so big that it took you a long time to see it. So if you're in a hurry, you don't see it

Loved the experience with the tour guide. The interesting part is that the guid knew how to explain the painting from different angles in order to understand the painting techniques. I highly recommend it.
