All I can say is WOW! Elena was an amazing guide! She was so knowledgeable about all of the art in the Prado Museum. And she was also very engaging and entertaining. We had kids with us, and she made the tour interesting for the adults as well as the kids. The museum is so huge, but Elena was able to take us to see the most important highlights and still give us enough time to appreciate the art. We learned so much more about the art with her than if we went by ourselves. She was also kind enough to give us her restaurant recommendations, as well as photos she took of us. Totally recommend this tour! Elena was the best!

We had Alicia and she was an incredible guide. Knowledgeable and kind. Entrance was quick and hassle-free. Definitely recommend.
