Explore historic and alternative views of Madrid on a 4-hour guided coach tour and visit to the 18th-century Royal Palace.

See the elegant squares of Oriente and España, famous parks such as the Retiro and Parque del Oeste, and enchanting bridges across the Manzanares. You will get the chance to stretch your legs and walk along the impressive Madrid-Rio urban park, seeing sights such as the Puerta del Rey and Puente de Segovia with one of the best views of Madrid’s historic monuments. Stop at the Hard Rock Café in Plaza de Colón for a complimentary soft drink, and continue to the Royal Palace, one of the best preserved royal residences in Europe.

    Muy bueno, la guia, Teresa, encantadora y super bien explicado todo el trayecto y el palacio. Vale la pena... este tour por Madrid es muy completo. Me dejo más sastisfecho que los buses rojos... las explicaciones tienen mucho de historia y la guia te da una catedra de Madrid en un par de horas.
