Panoramic Tour + Royal Palace

Royal Palace and Madrid
4 out of 5 stars (6 reviews)

Description

The best tour to get acquainted with the city. During this tour we will see the most important buildings, avenues, and squares with an expert guide who will explain about the monuments and their history. During the different historical periods the city has grown from the old Habsburg and Bourbons quarters to the present city.

We will also visit the inside of the impressive Royal Palace, former residence of the Spanish Kings, which is beautifully furnished and decorated. You will be able to admire the official Reception rooms, the Museum area, the Royal Chapel, the Throne Room, and the private rooms of King Charles III and Queen Elisabeth II. Built in the 18th century on the site of the old Alcazar castle of the Austrias, the palace is designed in classical baroque style, with an italian flavour. It is one of the most beautiful and best preserved palaces in Europe and a symbol of the permanence and consolidation of Madrid as the political capital of the kingdom.

" Useful Overview to Sightseeing places "
4 out of 5 stars
The bus Tour was less revealing. The following guided tour through the inner city is recommendable, particularly the Tour through the Royal Palace (access in price included, no queue at the entrance).
" Panoramic Tour & Royal Palace "
3 out of 5 stars
The Madrid City Panoramic Tour and Royal Palace gave a good overview of the city. It did not stop at any locations while we were on the bus but gave an overview of the city. The tour description is misleading as it did not say that it was also a walking tour. We enjoyed the walking tour but half of our tour group dropped out because they could not walk far. A better description would be more helpful. Maria was an excellent tour guide.

" Great tour for the start of your stay in Madrid. "
4 out of 5 stars
My husband and I had two and a half days in Madrid and I wish we took this tour when we first arrived instead of the second morning. It had all the highlights of the city and we really enjoyed seeing the Royal Palace. Our local guide was quite knowledgeable and friendly and although she had a strong accent, her English was easily understood. We met a family from the UK on the tour and joined them for paella lunch after the tour. Most of all, was happy that a gift shop stop was not on the itinerary.
" Great intro to Madrid "
5 out of 5 stars
This was a comfortable tour with some of it "panorama" style, and then a walking tour. The guide ass excellent and presented a very informative and interesting history of the plazas, buildings, and the Royal Palace. I would strongly recommend this tour at the start of your discovery of Madrid.
