Jaime was an informative and knowledgeable guide. He explained many aspects of the palace and the history of the Spanish Royal Family. During the city tour he was equally knowledgeable of the history of the city. An enjoyable day out exploring.

My husband and I absolutely enjoyed our tour of the Palacio Real de Madrid followed by the Old City Tour. From a skip the line ticket into the palace, we were given an incredibly in depth tour of the palace- incorporating the history of Spain and Madrid, the art and architecture, as well as the cultural changes through the centuries, all through the lens of the palace. It was delightful to have such a well informed and knowledgeable guide, and to have such a small group (we could ask as many questions as we wanted without feeling like we were hogging the guide!). After the palace, Marta showed us around older districts of Madrid that we hadn't visited before. She recommended an absolutely delicious restaurant for lunch, then off for the second portion of the tour. Since it was just us, she tailored the walking tour to what we were interested in. Whenever we had a question about something, she would take us in a new direction to answer it. It was an absolute pleasure to go on this tour!

We did the city tour with Sebastian and the Royal Palace tour with Ana. Both guides were very engaging and added a lot to our appreciation of the sites. These tours give you a much deeper insight into the history and meaning of all the many neighborhoods, buildings and works of art in a big cultural and historically abundant city like Madrid. Recommended!
