Our family of 4 with teens very much enjoyed our tour of the Palace with our guide David who was super knowledgeable and passionate about not only the subject itself but also about a range of questions that we had on the Spanish history and Madrid. We would definitely recommend this tour!

Must do when touring the inside of the palace to learn the history. Even though it is beautiful, it would not have been as interesting to see without the guide. Our guide was Sergio and he was very knowledgeable and funny. We enjoyed his sense of humor. The group was approximately 12 people and they use headsets inside the palace so you can hear him well. Highly recommend this tour.

We did the tour with Beni of the Royal Palace. It was perfect. The comments are very detailed and we did not miss any details of the visit. Each piece has been described from top to bottom. Several historical anecdotes or humorists accompanied the 2 hours that we did not see pass!
