Overview
Avoid usually long lines by booking a skip-the-line tour to one of Madrid’s top tourist attractions. As you tour the official home of Spain’s royal family, your guide shares historical, artistic, and architectural details that are easy to miss if you visit on your own. Plus, a guide leads the way so you don’t have to worry about navigating the site.

    Royal Palace of Madrid
    Stop: 105 minutes - Admission included
    Check in at our office and head to the Royal Palace with your guide, just two minutes walking distance from the same. Skip the lines and dive right into the history of this beautiful palace. Did you know its size doubles the one of Buckingham Palace? Build in an Italian baroque style, it was the former residence of the Spanish Monarchy from 1766 to 1931. Nowadays, it still is a great example of the establishment of Madrid as the capital of the kingdom. Today, it holds the most important receptions of the Spanish Crown. Know the audiences, dinner parties and signature of agreements celebrated through the years. Walk around the Armory Square. Marvel at the beautiful tapestries and elegant furniture. Follow your guide through the Grand Staircase, the Throne Room and the Banqueting Hall, among others. Once your guided visit finishes, you can visit the Royal Armory on your own. Make sure not to miss the views from the viewpoint of the Armory square!

the guide has done it too many times before and is tired of his own comments, so he tries to boost the experience by laughing of his comments. He does not keep the group together, which is bothersome when the venue is crowded. the headphone system is only so-so . I have seen

The guide was difficult to follow and didn’t keep the group together. Also, her commentary was not really helpful. She had no real stories or info going into each room. She just talked as if we knew what she was pointing to when we were far behind... not a great experience.

Tour guide was pleasant, but didn’t really give much information outside of what was available. Often she whipped through so fast that she was chattering about the next room when over half the group was in the previous room. No chance for questions. Some of this may have been
