Over all good experience just that was disappointed that we didn’t have access to players dressing rooms after traveling from USA. But as a Real Madrid fan I understand.

Guia Pablo muito atencioso e prestativo! Mesmo com o estádio em reforma, o passeio vale muito a pena!

It was a great tour at one of the nicest stadiums in Europe.

Fantastic even with the construction works taking place

Very interesting presentation of club and its history.
