  • Rating: 5 “good value to catch the sights, much simpler, easy booking on line too”

    Reviewed by Pam from Longforgan, United Kingdom on May 29th, 2014 perfect, stayed on for the whole way around the first time then decided where to pop off and on to get most from our 2 days. It makes it clear how close some areas are to others and the metro stations which helped for planning our evenings too!
    Only slight comment is that I have been on these buses in Barcelona and lisbon and in these places the bus waited until everyone was seated before driving off which is much better.
    They need to make more of some places such as the Mercado San Miguel which is fab for good value tapas (1 euro from numerous stalls) and drinks.
    Love Madrid and had a great time, again

  • Rating: 3 “Nice tour”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Silkeborg, Denmark on May 20th, 2014 We enjoined the trip. To start there was a lot of fuss with the digital ticket i showed in the bus . (??). The guide was very helpful to get my digital ticket converted to a paper ticket.

    After all, we had a nice trip

  • Rating: 5 “Madrid Hop On”

    Reviewed by Lawrence from Conway, United States on April 29th, 2014 We only had one day to spend in the beautiful city of Madrid, so we opted to book the Hop On Bus and it was the best decision we could have made. We boarded the bus the first thing in the morning and rode through the entire route to determine which stops we want to spend our time. Then on the second time around, we were able to get off and experience the different places we wanted to visit before boarding the next bus to the next stop. The perfect way to spend a day in Madrid.

  • Rating: 4 “Everything was like planned and a good service.”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Voesendorf, Austria on November 3rd, 2013 We enjoyed very much the tour, and the city. There was no problem at all, and all related to the booking and service went smooth.

  • Rating: 5 “An excellent introduction to the sights of the city”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Vancouver, Canada on October 11th, 2012 This is a wonderful way to see the attractions of this amazing city and I highly recommend it! (Rain warning: The upper-deck seats next to the windows (even on the buses that are enclosed on the top deck) can become wet if it is raining heavily so, if it is raining, bring several paper towels to dry your seat. You will still enjoy the sights!)

We prepaid on voucher but they were happy to change the days. We used the buses to get around when not touring.

    Reviewed by JENNYFER from VARESE, Italy on July 9th, 2014 Comodo e conveniente.

  • Rating: 4 “Sehr gut wenn man erstmal herausgefunden hat, wie es funktioniert”

    Reviewed by Marta from Giessen, Germany on June 28th, 2014 Die Tour ist gut um einen Überblick zu gewinnen, was man sich genauer anschauen möchte und um schnell von A nach B zu kommen. Das Personal im Bus spricht sehr gut englisch und ist sehr hilfsbereit und freundlich. Ich hatte wenig Zeit für Madrid und habe mich vorher nicht belesen, was es da gibt, habe nun aber einen schönen Einblick in die Stadt gewinnen können.

    Bei der Buchung wurde nicht erwähnt, welche Haltestellen zur normalen Tour gehören und welche nur in Sondertouren angefahren werden, so daß ich erstmal Zeit verloren habe, an einer nicht angefahrenen Stelle vergeblich nach einem Bus zu suchen. Ich bin dann mit der Metro in die Innenstadt gefahren und habe dann einen Bus gefunden.

  • Rating: 4 “Bequem”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Baden-Baden, Germany on June 9th, 2014 Die beiden angebotenen Touren geben einen guten Überblick über Madrid mit Bequemlichkeit die Stadt zu erkunden.

Dann kann man ohne Stress auch mal nur eine Runde mehr fahren, die Zeit besser genießen und sich verschiedene Dinge auf zwei Tage aufteilen!

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Wilderswil, Switzerland on April 19th, 2014 Super ,um einen ersten Überblick über die Stadt zu bekommen.
    Die Musik zwischen den Infos müsste nicht sein.
    Es sollte kommuniziert werden ,dass die Rundfahrt Madrid Tours heisst.
    Am Anfang hatten wir Mühe die Haltestelle zu finden,wenn man sich dann ein wenig auskennt,sieht man von Weitem ,wo die Busse halten.
