Excellent, knowledgable guide in Miriam.

The tour proceeded quite quickly and Miriam was very capable and took us to some of the most important works, explained them and often the political or royal story behind them, as well as the artist's connection with the subject. Most importantly, she showed us the development from the Spanish school of the 15/16th centuries, when perspective was not understood, to the Italians of the same era who had developed these techniques, exemplifying them with relevant works. I found this an important aspect of understanding painting of those times, as well as of the history then. A truly excellent guide who managed all the above, and more, under very trying conditions, with crowds of people vying to see each work and many people talking. My only issue was that the tour only lasted just over 2 hours, when 3 were promised & some time had been taken up with headset organisation, & the tapas promised turned out to be kilometers away (maybe a walk of 30-40 minutes)& we would have to go alone! Bad!

Excellent guided tour with a very educated and informed guide

We would highly recommend to everyone visiting Prado for the first time to use this type of guided tour. We were a group of 7 people and our tour guide (sorry, we could not remember his name) did a great presentation of some of the best paintings and shared the stories about the painters and the time they lived in. We would not be able to get the same introduction to this incredible museum on our own or even with an self audio guide. Great value for a price we paid!

Best intro to the Prado AND skips the LONG line

Dino knows a lot about the art history and the history of the area around the Prado museum and shares it in an engaging way. Skipping the entry line was almost worth the price of the ticket--it was long! I recommend the early arrival. The Prado is a BIG museum. The tour takes you to some of its highlights and gets you oriented--you can better explore the museum on your own. I recommend the tour.

Guide was great, but Prado is uncomfortably crowded.

Our guide was fabulous with fantastic English. Unfortunately, the museum is so packed we couldn’t even see some paintings. Unless you’re a real connoisseur, I would almost Side with the people who say skip the Prado and go to the Sofia de Reina and other sites in Madrid.

Made my visit informed and time effective.

I had 5 paintings to see at the Prado that have changed the world of art. These were all on our guide’s itinerary and their viewing was enhanced by her intelligent and composed commentary.
