Know More about this tour

Meet your guide in a central Madrid location at 8:45am. After a short walk, you will arrive at the Royal Palace for skip-the-line access. This is an early entrance experience to this amazing palace, and offers a chance to enjoy an uncrowded experience.

The Royal Palace was built in the 18th 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 here: audiences, dinner parties, signature of agreements, and the traditional ceremony of presentation of Credential Letters from foreign ambassadors to His Majesty the King.

  • Ok ......BUT.....we were almost hounded around by a following tour, which was a big group and quite loud!Our guide should have let them pass, otherwise no point in going early!
    Our guide was very nice but her English was poor. A shame that there is not an option of an English only tour with a fluent speaker as nearly all those on our trip were native English speakers. She did not tell us anything more than we could read on the information in each room.

  • This was a nice tour. Palace has close to 3,000 rooms but you only get to see 20 of them but they are spectacular. Be sure and go visit the armory when you are done. They have a room full of life sized horses wearing battle armor, have never seen anything like that.

  • The palace was beautiful and getting in early before the crowds was great, but we were somewhat disappointed with the tour itself. Meeting at Julia Travel to find our guide was somewhat disorganized, with several groups - all setting out for different places - meeting and leaving at the same time. There were 10 people on our tour, which was given in both English and Spanish. Eight of us were there for the English commentary, and two for the Spanish. Our guide whose name we did not catch was not very welcoming or friendly. She was also hard to understand because of her strong Spanish accent and we missed a lot of what she said. She spent considerably more time conversing in Spanish to the two Spanish-speaking members of the group than to the eight others. There was also a guide trainee who accompanied us. She spoke very good English with little trace of an accent but she unfortunately could not take an active role in the tour, only helping with logistics.

  • viator never let us down - easy to book- there were about 12 of us in the group, the guide was knowledgeable, we beat the crowds and the Palace was superb

  • This was a fabulous experience and you should add to your must-sees while in Madrid. Our tour was finishing when the Royal Palace was opening, and it was great to have an informed tour guide during a quieter time.

  • This is a great tour of the most spectacular palace anywhere 2800 rooms. Early access and skip the line is a must. Daniel are tour guide was perfect. A true gentleman who was knowledgeable, professional and funny.

  • Amazing! We were in before the public and it was a totally different experience seeing the palace in peace and without noise and stuff!
    Tour guide was great and this is highly recommended!

  • You should definitely go early, the ticket line by 900 AM, was very long.
    Great guide.

  • The trip started at 9am and not 8:45am as advertised. The tour itself is well worth it and it felt that we had the palace almost to ourselves. It's a shame that the tour was bi-lingual, but tried to make the best of it and learn a little bit of Spanish

  • This is an amazing building, and this tour lets you in before the general public. We moved freely between the beautiful rooms and our guide Rocia was terrific. She has a good manner and provided an excellent description of the palace. This is the best way to see the palace.
