  • El Escorial was a lot of steps - up and down so if steps are an issue be very aware there are a lot.
    The Valley of the Fallen was the highlight for me as it was amazing when you get inside - I just thought it was a memrial outside with the amazing cross and the buildings but wait until you enter - It was not expected and it was fantastic.
    Really worth the trip.

  • This was a good tour. Only takes about a half a day. El Escorial is very interesting and the crypts are the star of this tour. So interesting and very beautiful. Unfortunately there is a library that is very decorated and beautiful, but it was not open the day we were there. The Valley of the Fallen is also very interesting and rather grand in scale. Highly recommend this tour.

  • Was very good and interesting tour. Our guide was extremely good. Unfortunately do not remember his name. El Escorial an amazing place. Definitely great destination

  • A wonderful day. So very interesting. Only drawback was that our guide spoke Spanish and English, so everything had to be said in two languages. This meant that it was slow going and we missed some of the tour as a result. The tour itself was wonderful and definitely not to be missed. Would highly recommend it and give it a 5 rating. Hotel pick up was nice but end of tour drop-off point was quite a distance away and necessitated taking a cab back to the hotel. Overall, a wonderful experience.
