Excellent everything. Inside the museum Marcos 10 points. And for the tour from the Museum to the Royal Palace we had the company of José María who was fantastic. The itinerary was very complete and it was obvious that he was also very good in presenting his knowledge. highly recommended

Visita al Museo del Prado: Muy interesante para darse una idea de algunos pintores importantes de los muchos que hay en el museo del Prado. Pretender verlo todo un solo día en unas pocas horas no es posible. Con las explicaciones de la guía “Amparo” te haces una idea y te anima a hacer las restantes visitas que se necesitan para disfrutar del inmenso patrimonio que tenemos. Visita por Madrid: Estupendo recorrido para conocer lo más esencial de las calles, edificios y algo de historia del centro de Madrid.
