The Royal Palace was built in the XVIII century upon the ancient Baroque Italian style fortress of the Habsburg. It is one of the most beautiful and best preserved palaces in Europe and a symbol of the permanence and consolidation of Madrid as the capital of the Kingdom. The Palace was the official residence of the Spanish Monarchy from 1765 to 1931. To date, the most stunning receptions of the Spanish Crown are celebrated there: audiences, dinner parties, signature of agreements and the traditional ceremony of presentation in which foreign ambassadors present Credential Letters to His Majesty the King.

    Our guides were very good. But the first part of the tours was two hours on a bus and if I were to do that next time, I would just do the Royal Palace portion.

    This was a good overview of sights in Madrid. We had limited time and wanted to see the city. The guided tour of the Palace was excellent! My only complaint is there are no hotel pickups.

    We had our sightseeing first around the city by coach there are some nuisance in the bus that some are talking while the tour guide Isabelle is talking about Madrid , we had only one stop in the plaza del toro for some photo op but in other places that is nice to take some photos we didn’t. I don’t know maybe it’s better if you take the hop on hop tour bus instead. The next one is the royal palace our guide is good sorry forgot the name Sergio or Jorge but he’s ok.Threw some jokes there and then so it’s not too boring. That tour is okey the Royal palace tou.

    First you meet at the travel office. It is wall to wall with people, no where to sit, no directions given. We finally went and asked and your Viator paper ticket is not good on this tour, like it has been on every tour I went on. You have to wait in like and get the travel companies ticket. Also out front are local beggers because they know it's all tourists, the company never asked them to leave or to stop harassing people waiting for their tour. Then it's a little walk and down some stairs to the bus, we were fine but some older people really had a problem. The tour isn't as good as the Hop On Hop off tour and it's in english and spanish. I was under the impression it was only english, so every sentence was english then spanish, english, spanish and it made for non stop talking by the tour guide. I understand that we are in Spain and they speak spanish, I expect that, but not on an english guided tour. The Royal Palace tour was ok, but it would have been better to just do a regular tour through the palace. It's crowded and hard to stay with the group. Plus you don't have time to read the plaques by each item or in each room. I would not recommens this tour or tour company.

    Madrid highlites, very disappointing delivery of the tour my the guide, she was not interested or passionate about what she does. Was surpose to be in English and Spanish, English was an after thought.
    The palace tour was done by another guide, she was interested and informative.
    This part of the tour was great

    Took the Madrid and royal palace tour. Not impressed by our tour guide Isabella. I was hoping for an informative tour, but instead got a tour filled with yelling and no clear time limit on each bus stop.

  • 03-Jul-2019

    The bus tour was a total waste and the palace tour guide was very informative but I wish we went on our own with self guided sets as I felt I was rushed through. Only good thing about bus tour is the guide told us of the places we can leisurely come on our own see. So if you do take this tour my advice is it to take tips from bus guide and then visit the places he/she suggests.

    Not ship the line, waited in hot sun for 30 minutes. Asked for English speaking, but got two languages: English and Spanish, which made the tour longer and you would lose interest while listening to language you did not understand. Loved the locations we visited.

  • 01-Oct-2018

    Tour guide was very sweet and knowledgable. Large, Clean bus. I would have like to seen more of Madrid sights. Drove pass at of the sights. But the palace was a gorgeous tour!
