We had such a great time with Martha walking through the museum. She did such a great job pacing our visit and we had so much fun discussing the art, the history of the art pieces and their artists. Hands down best tour we did in Madrid.

Tamara our guide was simply excellent!! We enjoyed our tour in the museums and we’ll surely visit again!

Great Focus, inevitably limited coverage

Having to repeat points in both Spanish and English for a mixed group also consumed time.

Tiring but worth it

Good guide, very tiring to visit 3 museums in one day.
