Full description
Learn about the history of the Prado on this 4-hour tour. See the dazzling display of works by the great European masters such as Velázquez, Goya, Raphael, Rubens and others with a professional guide. Housed in an 18th-century neoclassical building, the Prado opened as a museum in 1819. Spain’s queen at the time was impressed with the Louvre in Paris and wanted to showcase an enormous collection in her own country. At the Reina Sofía Museum, see works by Spain’s top 20th-century artists, including Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dalí. Your guide will provide commentary on the art, from abstractionism to cubism, to surrealism and modernism.

We moved quickly from gallery to gallery, because there is SO much to see. Our tour guide was armed with many interesting insights and helped us understand the context of the paintings. She gave us nearly an hour to explore the Prado on our own before we walked over to the Reina Sofia Museum.

I do not recommend it! Do it with another agency or alone! The tour of 01.09 in the Prado Museum was short but it went well with Marta. The museum is beautiful, highly recommended, but the tour with another guide, I don't remember his name, to the Reina Sofía museum was a disaster, this tour was after the Prado and all the time he indicated that he should go, that he was in a hurry, that's why he would jump works and that we would not see it, he gave the tour in two languages, English and Spanish, which was not what was contracted! Just hire it in Spanish! So we saw less than half of the museum. It was a visit of less than 40 minutes to imagine what we saw or understood… really do not sell a tour that does not have guides committed to the job or offer sodas that do NOT comply!

We have carried out the activity with Alfonso. Both visits are a journey through the masterpieces that we find in these two museums. The explanations have been consistent with their beauty, framing them in the time context in which they were made. In addition, Alfonso transmits with passion, making the experience even more enjoyable. It was a pleasure to have done it!
