Absolutely recommend this tour as your first To-Do in Madrid. Our guide was amazing providing us with history and suggestions of what to do. It’s a good way to see the entire city and then decide what attractions appealed you the most and plan a return trip.

Nice introduction to the city with a guide on the bus (and not a poorly functioning recording…). A tour, then a matter of choosing the places you want to visit!

Very good visit. Very interesting explanations. A must to do but very effective.

Good unless it gets very cold from having the roof open in January

Consistent tour and excellent tourist information.
