What People Are Saying About Museo del Prado
Well organized, a bit crowded even in winter time. Madrid is really a beautiful city and I do think they need to increase the frequency, specially in the line covering the old part of the city.
I was glad we got there early. Several but loads arrived later in the morning and moved about the museum in a large group. It was impossible to view paintings and we had to dodge these groups for the rest of the visit.
Everything was good. The audio was clear. Announcing the number of the stops was good, too.
Excellent service - no need to queue for hours to get to "El Bosco" exhibition in Prado in Madrid. Staff in Prado was very helpful.
Great 3 hour bike tour to see the city highlights , very informative guide Only negative was our group was quite big 16!
