Family of four with two teens and this was the best way to access the sights of Madrid with 2 day passes for 88 euros. We ran the gauntlet on both routes 1 & 2, hit all the popular areas as well the Sunday Flea Market, Real Madrid stadium tour, Mercado San Miguel, etc. We also used this transport to get to the rail station in order to buy pre-departure train tickets to Malaga. With access until 10pm, this is a perfect way to maximize your time in fabulous Madrid. The drivers and ticket checkers are very customer focused. Thanks for being great hosts. If you had wifi like they have on the buses in Barcelona it would be an added feature.

Was fun to have a short 45 minutes ride around the city when we went there by just for a weekend. Try, won't regret it worthy it

We tend to take a Hop on-Hop off bus tour in every place we visit to gain an introduction to the city and it's highlights. However we almost didn't bother in Madrid, having experienced the shambles that is the Big Bus operation in New York City.
We are glad we didn't let that experience sway us because Madrid City Tour is a well run and professional business and operates the way these companies should.
Their buses are comfortable and clean, the stops along the route are clearly marked, they provide an excellent map and route plan, the commentary (although a bit thin on detail) is adequate and their prices are reasonable... 25 Euros for a two day pass.

This has to be the worst city bus tour outfit in existence. Buses rarely run on the published frequency -- many times there were 3 buses bunched up, then no bus for 30-40 minutes. Announcers/conductors on the bus did not announce stops in advance -- multiple times the "stop" was announced after we drove past it with no chance to stop. Audio tour is almost completely useless and with a wide variety of annoying music. Very poor service all around. Never again.

Great way to see the city but not advisable in heavy traffic as the commentry and the stops are out of sync at times.
