Definitely buy tickets ahead of time to skip the line
Very interesting and I would suggest you buy tickets online ahead of time. The line can be quite long at times especially because of the screen before you can even buy a ticket. It’s well worth the money I would also suggest for the four euros more per person to take the guided tour a wealth of information.

Excellent way to visit Royal Palace
Jan 2020
We booked this tour via Craft Tours. The group was small, only 8 people. We got to the Palace early and enjoyed almost private experience with very few groups there, and no waiting in line. We also appreciated headphones, so you could hear the guide very well and could also walk around while listening. Our guide Irene was excellent, she provided a lot of information and details about the Palace, the history, the Royal family. This was a bilingual tour, and that provided opportunities to take pictures and see more while Irene was speaking to Spanish couple. At the end of the tour when we had more questions she stayed to provide us with answers. We really enjoyed the whole experience.

A Royal Palace worth visiting
Dec 2019
I booked the IBE tour via Marriott Bonvoy Activities. The tour started on time and the guide David explained well in Spanish and English the history of the Palace and the various Spanish monarchs over many centuries.He gave a good description of all the important things in the Palace. The many Royal families' private rooms where photos were not allowed were exquisitely decorated with Roman and Chinese style architecture and furniture.David tried his best to explain the history and the nature of each room.

$67.00 to be with 30 bi-lingual people
Oct 2019
We are extremely well traveled and have been on dozens of tours throughout Europe. That being said, this tour was was pretty miserable.

There were 30 people on this tour (at $34 each). Of course, there are large group tours, but rarely at almost $70 per couple and bi-lingual.

Although we booked a tour in English, it turned into a bi-lingual tour. As you know, the guide repeats every sentence in both English and Spanish - which means that the guide takes twice as long to review each fact and comment.

While I do recommend early entry into the Palace and a tour, I DO NOT recommend this IBE or Get Your Guide. We booked on the Get Your Guide site.

Tour company not recommended but Palace worth seeing
May 2019 • Friends
We had a tour of the Royal Palace in Madrid with IBE. Tour was listed as 2 hours but by the time we got in the actual tour was only 1 hour. The tour was in English and Spanish. The guide would be half way through the explanation of the room before we even got into the room. It felt very rushed and the palace was crowded by the time we left. I felt I gained as much information from the written panels in each room as the explanation given by the tour guide. The palace is very beautiful and worth seeing just not with this company. In this case we would have been better off doing our own self guided tour

Dear NanBB, we are very sorry for that. We are talking with our guide to know what happended that day. Our tour is a bilingual tour and the Royal Palace is a very visited monument so always there are plenty of people on its rooms. Many thanks for your comments, Kind regards. IBE TOURS.

Palace amazing - tour - eh
Apr 2019 • Solo
It was worth it to have the tour with the skip the lines and get in before the general population. Tour guide had a strange sense of humor that didn't come across ver well - almost sarcastic to the group. I paid for the tapas at the end. Don't. Basically I was dropped off at a bar, given a plate of tapas and a drink and then abandoned.

Dear 514bobk, We are very happy to know that you enjoyed the tour of the Royal Palace. We are sorry that you did not like the tapas tasting. That's right, it takes place in a typical Madrid tavern where you can enjoy several Spanish tapas. We will consider your comments for possible improvements. Thank you. IBE TOURS

Just okay

This tour was informational but had a few flaws. Meeting point was 8;45 but tour actually began an hour later and we had to wait on a line even though it was "skip-the-line" access. Headset were uncomfortable, muffled and didn't stay in your ear, Tour was in both English and Spanish. Tour was long. We are happy we did it but it could be improved.
