A good option if you don't have your own transport.

This is a good option if you want to see both El Escorial & The Valley of the Fallen and do not have your own transport. The hotel pick-up was a waste of time - we were walked to the tour company office a few minutes away. The actual visit was very good given time constraints. In El Escorial we visited the Royal Apartments, the Picture Galleries,the Mausoleum of the Kings & Queen's of Spain and also the vast Basilica. Our guide was very knowledgeable and gave commentaries in both Spanish & English. There is a lot to see here and more time would have been nice to explore further. We then drove to the Valley of the Fallen. This was the shorter visit although there is less to see. Again our guide provided a commentary as we visited and then allowed us an extra 20 minutes to explore alone with our thoughts. If you are unable to arrange your own transport this is a good option.

More time in Escorial to view grounds outside would be good!

Valley of the Fallen - Time and visit Perfect! Escorial - We did not get chance to see the Gardens and maze [except through a window] and felt a little rushed. The Guides were very good and knowledgeable and we really enjoyed the trip, but we feel we need to go to Escorial again to see the outside [unless of course it is for Monks only! In which case fair enough!

It was a nice trip but the visit to El Escorial was hurried

I think some of the reviews I read pointed to the same issue that the trip to El Escorial was short and hurried. There is not enough time to see such a huge place and to visit the garden. I think I was the only English speaking person in the group but the guide tried her best to explain it in English

There were minimal and insufficient instructions for ticket pickup.

I was confused on where the Trapsatur meeting point was due to lack of instruction, and nobody answered me when I called the provided help line multiple times. Google Map location provided was also not correct.

The tour was very well organised, with very good tour guide

The tour was very well organised both morning at escorial and valley and afternoon at Toledo. Both tour guide were experienced. Only the lunch included was a bit too turistic but good quality.
