The positive: The visit to the Palace was very good, the guide Pedro Excellent !!! Time and form was fulfilled. The visit to the Museum, the guide Cecilia, also excellent, came out a lot. THE NEGATIVE: For those of us who are not from Spain, the monument of Philip IV, nowhere says so, so you have to ask everyone what it is to locate the meeting point, they should solve it. People should have been told that between the 2 visits there were several blocks for those who wanted to go by taxi, there were older people who had a hard time doing it. And finally a passenger was late and we were more than half an hour to enter the museum a shame. Things to improve. For the all very good.

Visit to the Prado Museum: Very interesting to get an idea of some of the many important painters that are in the Prado Museum. Pretending to see everything in a single day in a few hours is not possible. With the explanations of the guide "Amparo" you get an idea and encourages you to make the other visits that are needed to enjoy the immense heritage that we have. Tour of Madrid: Great tour to get to know the most essential of the streets, buildings and some history of the center of Madrid.
