Full description
Climb aboard a panoramic bus for a whirlwind sightseeing tour of Madrid, and get your bearings in the Spanish capital as you learn its long history, from the Habsburg Empire to the present day. You will see the most important buildings, avenues, and squares in the city, from the historic quarters of the Courts of Castille to the state-of-the-art stadium of the Real Madrid football team. Drive down Gran Vía to admire the Art Deco buildings, such as the Telefónica headquarters and Edificio Grassy. Marvel at the monument to Cervantes in Plaza de España, and see the official residence of the Spanish Prime Minister in Moncloa Palace. Discover where Madrid celebrates New Year by eating grapes in Puerta del Sol, and look at the Neo-classical Puerta de Alcalá just outside Retiro Park. Pass the historic Plaza de Toros de Las Ventas, the largest bullring in Spain, and continue to a square named in memory of Christopher Columbus. Stop briefly at the Hard Rock Café for a complimentary soft drink, before continuing down Paseo de la Castellana to the Real Madrid stadium of Santiago Bernabéu. En route back to the bus terminal, end with a look at the Caja Madrid Obelisk on Plaza Castilla, and the ornate fountain of Cibeles, built in the reign of Charles III.

Too many unimportant stops.

Guide not easy to understand. Would have liked to see inside bull ring. At Hard Rock Cafe, we were supposed to have a free drink. Impossible ! It was packed, long wait for bathroom.

I felt that they did not comply

The tour is described for 2, 30 minutes, lasting two, on the other hand, they are not clear as to the use of the hard rock voucher, they did not change anything, the tour was good, but they should deliver a map.
