Took a Taxi to Palace. No Cab driver, security guards, nor guides that we encountered in the area could tell us where the meeting Point was. The statue of Elizabeth 11. When we finally found it it was 1/2 mile away from Palace and 5 minutes late, the group was gone. No answer on your phone available.

This is tour well worth doing. Our guide was knowledgeable and professional. It was in Spanish and English, but this did not detract from the quality of the tour. What an amazing palace, which the guide brought to life!

Right from the start of the tour to its end , our tour guide was very informative .....he made the tour very entertaining .....one suggestion would be to have separate English and Spanish tours

A little disappointed.....
tmiyahara66
, Aug 2019
I signed up for an English-speaking tour of the Royal Palace of Madrid for my daughters and myself. While our guide did speak English, more than half of the guests in our group of about 10-12 were Spanish speakers and therefore he had to recite his tour information twice, once in English and once in Spanish. It always seemed like his Spanish descriptions were significantly longer than English so I feel like we missed a lot of information. While he was a super nice guy and I definitely learned something (the goal), I feel like if would have been a much more cohesive tour had it been entirely in English, which quite honestly, is what I paid for.

Our guide was well knowledgeable. However we booked an English speaking tour and it included Spanish. The guide had to repeat everything in both languages which made the tour longer and more tiring.

Royal palace visit in Madrid

The overall trip was okay. The guide was very nice. However, I wish she would have taken us under the Sade to tell us stories about different statues in front of the palace. It was extremely hot and standing under the sun while she was telling her story was not a pleasant experience. The palace was extremely overcrowded as well and it was hard to enjoy the visit

We enjoyed this tour very much. The guide was well worth it because Paola gave so much history that we did not know about everything in the area. The tour was not rushed and very paced. Definitely would recommend. We choose the afternoon guided tour that was perfect, only 6 peoplr in our group, and were told the morning groups are usually about 30 people. Great tour.

We enjoyed the tour. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. We got right into the palace and were taken on an extensive tour. Saw everything we wanted to see. My only reason for not giving this a five star rating is the fact that the tour took twice as long as necessary because the tour was conducted in English AND Spanish. So much time was wasted for both groups. When you are on vacation your time is very limited. We estimated that this tour should have been over in two hours instead of almost three. There is nothing different the guide could have done. She really did an outstanding job. But after experiencing this type of tour I think I would have rather done it on my own.
