What people are saying about Royal Palace, Madrid

it was a pretty nuce Tour through the Palacio Real. Our Guide Benny explained us a lot and it was very good organized. The Tapas afterwards werd delicious and we started the Tour through the Retiro Park. Unfortunately the weather wasn't in our side and parts of the group had to cancel it earlier due to the heavy rain. Benny offered us to continue the walk on the following day with a colleague of him. That was so amazing. Thanks for all.
