Highly recommended to get an overview of the city. But beware: which bus you board for which tour is only visible at the front of the bus! I thought blue seats - blue tour - a mistake ;-)!

This activity is highly recommended to get to know and locate the main places of interest in the city. You go down and go up when you need it to enter a museum or visit a place

Great option to explore the city, can get off at any point to explore more and then back on the buss.

You can discover the beautiful city of Madrid in a short time. Buses come very regularly.

It was an excellent experience. The buses were new and the frequency was good.
