Our guide was excellent. Was pleased with the in-depth explanations of the select paintings. We went for lunch at the cafe and walked through a more picture-by-picture on our own afterwards. Only surprise (think time limitation) was no Murillo chosen as a highlight. Murillo is most of every USA Catholic parish calendar. So made a point to see those originals.

Wonderful guide and great tour. Rather than wandering around and gaping at paintings we didn’t know, our guide showed us the best of the Prado and gave us a better perspective on Goya, Velasquez, el Greco and their times, their clients and the Spanish court. I forgot the young woman’s name but she was super informed and great guide.

Amparo offered an excellent guided tour of the Prado museum masterpieces. We did not have too much time and we needed "the must see" pieces. Amparo delivered exactly what we were looking for. She is very knowledgeable, with a good sense of humor and she showed us details that we had missed without her help. I highly recommend her.
