All that you need in nutshell

We had an exceptional guide Francesca she was knowledgeable and hilarious she had a way for you to learn the history as well as the meaning the artist was trying convey I recommend this agency and your for the art lovers that don’t fully understand it the plus perk to this was we walked right in while there was a General Admission line with people standing that was as long as a line for a Disneyworld line at space mountain

Great overview of the city and terrific tour of the stadium

The stadium tour, which is what we really wanted, was sold out through this and all other partners. But we were able to book this combo package and, even though we had already explored the city on our own for three days, we still saw sights we hadn't seen alone. Also, the stadium tour was outstanding. No lines, self-guided and no time limit. This is THE way to go, even if you do only want to see the stadium!

Not worth the money

The tour guide spoke so poor English that we could not hear the difference from Spanish. Because we had booked tickets for the Bernabeu, we did not get the whole PAnorama Madrid trip, which I do not think is okay. It was not as described when we bought the tickets.

Madrid sightseeing well done and good English

The guide was very good and spoke excellent English and the microphone worked well I would recommend it to anyone.

Macarena is an excellent guide. We had a bespoke tour with her and enjoyed every minute.
