All I can say is WOW! Elena was an amazing guide! She was so knowledgeable about all of the art in the Prado Museum. And she was also very engaging and entertaining. We had kids with us, and she made the tour interesting for the adults as well as the kids. The museum is so huge, but Elena was able to take us to see the most important highlights and still give us enough time to appreciate the art. We learned so much more about the art with her than if we went by ourselves. She was also kind enough to give us her restaurant recommendations, as well as photos she took of us. Totally recommend this tour! Elena was the best!

The tour was most informative and enjoyable. We learned a lot on our tour of the surroundings, and Givo was a perfect guide for art history at the PRADO. The only problem was that we could not adopt her for the week, or at least the day, to cover more of the amazing art.

Dino knows a lot about the art history and the history of the area around the Prado museum and shares it in an engaging way. Skipping the entry line was almost worth the price of the ticket--it was long! I recommend the early arrival. The Prado is a BIG museum. The tour takes you to some of its highlights and gets you oriented--you can better explore the museum on your own. I recommend the tour.
