Dear GoodXTC, Thank you for reviewing our Museo del Prado tour. I am sad to see you did not enjoy the tour, since it is designed for our customers to be able to know the most recognized works of the museum. Moreover, our guides always inform the customers they have the option to stay in the museum as long as they wish for them to be able to have a deeper look in everything they are interested in. Best regards, Alex B.

Group was too big and guide just did not have a passion for the topic. She never even told us her name. We wanted a shorter overview, but we feel we got nothing others then actual entry to the museum. We have had others museum tours that were much better.

Dear Oksana B, I truly regret the tour was not up to your expectations, although I must say that customers have the option to stay in the museum as long as they wish after the visit for them to have a complete overview and be able to explore the pieces they are interested in the most. Best regards, Alex B.
