The positive: The visit to the Palace was very good, the guide Pedro Excellent !!! Time and form was fulfilled. The visit to the Museum, the guide Cecilia, also excellent, came out a lot. THE NEGATIVE: For those of us who are not from Spain, the monument of Philip IV, nowhere says so, so you have to ask everyone what it is to locate the meeting point, they should solve it. People should have been told that between the 2 visits there were several blocks for those who wanted to go by taxi, there were older people who had a hard time doing it. And finally a passenger was late and we were more than half an hour to enter the museum a shame. Things to improve. For the all very good.

The guide provided us with a lot of interesting information and along the tour he pointed out some details that we most certainly would have missed. Great experience!
