Royal Palace
Sep 2019
Our tour guide James, was knowledgable and fun. It was truly a small group tour it was us and another couple. This is why I always book a small group tour as most times it end up being small enough for you to get individual attention. Always worth the extra cost.

Learned so much!
Jose was prompt and the tour company was very good communicating with us. We enjoyed Jose’s narrative. He has a fun personality and knows soooo much. He made the history of the palace come alive! Would book again based on today’s experience.

perfect tour!
Oct 2019
Today Luis David gave us a tour of the royal palace. We signed up for a semi private tour and were lucky enough to have David to ourselves. Babylon tours emailed us precise directions and texted us a reminder of where to meet and the name of our guide. David was prompt and enthusiastic. David started the tour with a brief history lesson including helpful visual aides. We passed the throngs of tourist in line to our private entrance. David was the perfect guide. He had a vast knowledge base of history, art, and politics.David was personable and patient. We asked a lot of questions and he had all the answers. Our whole family of 4 agreed that David was our favorite guide by far.

Excellent private tour of Palacio Real with a professor as our guide
Aug 2019
My husband and I really enjoyed this private tour with Ana as our guide. From the beginning of the tour we noted Ana's passion for Madrid and the palace. As a college professor, her knowledge was amazing and provided an excellent experience for us as we walked through the palace. Since we were not part of a group, we learned a lot more about the palace and Ana provided many extra pieces of information along the way throughout the tour. She even showed us the armory at the very end of the tour which was an added bonus and a treat. I highly recommend this tour; it moved at the right pace and was the perfect amount of time to spend in the palace.

Wonderful!
Our tour guide Marta was excellent and didn’t miss a thing. We toured the royal palace for two hours and it was amazing. Marta is very friendly and extremely well versed in everything to do with Madrid and it’s history. I would highly recommend this tour as it was one of the highlights of our trip to Europe. Well worth the $. If we return to Madrid we will take another tour with Marta and Babylon tours. 10/10.

Amazing tour with a very knowledgeable tour guide!
Jun 2019 • Family
Enrique was an exquisite tour guide. He was so knowledgeable about the history, palace, current events, and even minor details that you typically wouldn't notice. He gave me in depth answers to all of my questions. He was also very animated throughout the tour, which kept you hooked in and made it all very fun and exciting. I definitely recommend him as a tour guide.

The Royal Palace was absolutely stunning. It's a must see if you're in Madrid. The decoration and fine details of each room are out of this world. I still can't believe I had the opportunity to see such beautiful sites in this Palace. 10 stars all the way!

Phenomenal private tour
Our private tour was absolutely outstanding. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable, very patient and passionate as he described all of the features of the armory as well as the royal palace. He was very knowledgeable about history as well as art and many of the Furniture pieces in the Palace. He even took extra time with us as he could tell how Extremely interested we were in learning as much as we could. I would recommend this tour and tour company extremely highly! Our only trouble was finding where it was we were supposed to go to meet him but once we figured that out it was fantastic!!!!
