Overall rating

4.6 / 5

based on 358 reviews

We participated in both Route 1 and 2 and were very pleased. Luckily, both buses had windows that we didn’t have to tint in the wind and blizzard, as we saw on some buses being fairly open upstairs. Both routes showed Madrid so widely that we would not have been able to reach it by public transport ourselves.

I would 1000% recommend. Take the time to see the whole city and make notes of metro stations and attractions that you want to go back to. I also used it as my mode of transportation. Buy. 2 day pass and hop and off to wherever you want to go. Didn’t need to buy a bus pass or metro pass.

Wonderful ambiance, great singers, relaxed atmosphere, huge portions of the tasty food plus a bonus charcoal drawing from the owner and cava towards the end. All in all, way worth it ❤️

First time user of this bus tour --- EXCELLENT way to hit any highlights of the city. I am sold on my return trips to Europe !

Comfortable bus, welcoming and helpful staff. We recommend doing the 2 routes twice to better appreciate the visit.
