    A Splendid In- Depth Tour of the Royal Palace
    The tour of the Royal Palace of Madrid was undeniably splendid! The grandeur and opulence of the palace reminds one of the Chateau Versailles in Paris, this is obviously its larger version. It was entirely more elaborately explained by our awesome tour guide, the intricacies of the lives of the Royal families who lived there, allowing an in depth view of the inhabitants of the palace.

    Very average tour
    It's presented as a 90min experience, but in reality it took us about 45mins from when we were asked to show up and check in to actually get into the palace to start the tour. So you're only really paying for a 45min tour. It was worth it to skip the line and get a bit of the background of what you're looking at. Maybe our guide was having a bad day but he was very monotone and didn't seem to engage with anyone in the large group (of around 30ppl). He would explain a tiny room in the palace when the group weren't able to see what he was talking about cos he'd moved into a smaller room that everyone didn't fit in. He may also be new and just needs to learn how to engage more and be conscious of large groups.

    Great tour - Rocio is the best!
    Rocio was amazing! She hit on all of the important points of the museum and paused for questions on the way. She was funny and informative throughout the 2 hours. The only thing I would say is the meeting point is confusing. The link to the specific meet up is incorrect and takes you to a place a few minutes away from the actual meeting point. We almost missed our tour because of this but were able to ask around and eventually catch up to the group. Other than that this tour was great!

    Detailed tour of the palace
    We were met with Vanessa at another location. Then we were ushered to the palace with a 5 mins walk. Everything was executed with a proper system. The palace is beautiful and the guide was informative. We enjoyed ourselves through out the whole tour. Will definitely recommend this tour group if anyone is interested.

    Isabel Rules The World!
    Our tour guide Isabel was absolutely incredible. She was informative, entertaining, efficient and so personal with her delivery, she just made us feel at home as if we were touring a site with our cousin. She is a gem!

    When in Madrid, ask for Rocío
    Our guide, Rocío, was superb. Her knowledge of history, her wit and sense of humour and communication skills made this tour most memorable.

    Awesome Toledo Tour
    Amazing tour of Toledo. Very well planned in order to avoid crowds in well known tourist sites. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and very thorough. The amount of coverage was more than plenty but not a lot was left out. Would strongly recommend.

    Toledo with IBE tours — highly recommend.
    My family and I had a wonderful time. Lydia was very professional and informative with a wealth of information. She timed everything well so that we also had enough time to shop a bit, get a bite to eat. I would recommend IBE tours. Lydia spoke fluently in English and Spanish. I commend Pablo the bus driver. Thank you.

    Outstanding guided tour
    This was one of the most enjoyable tours of my trip to Spain and France. I was unfortunately in a wheelchair with a broken leg , yet I was well accommodated in this tour. Tour guide was friendly, knowledgeable and organized. He communicated very well and kept our large group together and moving through the palace at a good pace. He provided the right amount of detail and insight into each room to keep us interested.

    Terrible experience
    Terrible experience. The guide never showed up at the meeting point. We showed up 20 minutes in advance and waited for more than 40 minutes. We contacted the tour operator and they said to meet at a different point. They never showed up or took care of us. Please save your time and money and book with someone else

    Must See Royal Palace in Madrid!
    The tour guide was very fun and well prepared with anecdotes and information about the palace. The skip the line nature of the tour was well worth the price - even though entrance would otherwise be free. However, the group was too large and unwieldy. Several of the rooms could not accommodate all of us (probably 30), let alone the other people in them. As a result, sometimes the guide was describing things I could not see. Also, though the tour was billed as 2 hours, that included 5 minutes waiting for latecomers, 10 minutes walking to the Palace from the meeting point and 5 minutes distributing headsets (which were provided by the palace and not the tour company, and therefore of poor quality - some stopped working midway through the tour). Even minus those 20 minutes, the tour ended 10 minutes early - so it was really 90 minutes in the palace, and for sure we were rushed from room-to-room and the splendor could not be fully absorb or appreciated.

    Highly Recommend
    Highly Recommend. Ishmael was our guide and we can't say enough about him and his knowledge about the history of the Galleria/Palace. We give two thumbs up and 10 stars for the tour itself and Ishmael. Thank you for giving us a delightful and informative tour. We booked him again for our Toledo tour the next day.

    Great time!
    I had an amazing time learning from Herman about the different sights of the city! We also had a god amount of free time at the end to explore the sights the tour didn’t cover. Toledo is a beautiful city with so much interesting history. Would recommend!

We went to the designated location at the designated time (we were there early and stayed for 20 minutes after the time) and nobody showed up. We were eventually able to reach the agency. The person said to just go into the cafe and order some tapas. We already had happened to talk to the person at that address and they knew nothing about tours . We were also told to go later in the day to meet someone at a different location for a similar tour, and again, there were no guides to be found. We definitely need a refund.
