The tour of the Prado museum was extremely disorganized. Some of the audios were not functioning and some were given Spanish audios instead of English. He did not have any replacements. The tour guide did not do a very good job. There were many customers who were very disappointed. Two even left the tour. However the The guide for the Royal Palace was wonderful.

Een aanrader om hier gebruik van te maken. Tussen de beide rondleidingen zit ongeveer 2 uur. Genoeg tijd om van Prado naar plaza Isabella te lopen en ongeveer halverwege bij het plaza st Miguel een lunch van tapas te genieten (met goedkope prijzen - in vergelijking met Nederland).
