I took a group of teenagers (39 students) to Las Ventas and we were given a tour by an excellent guide. It was the highlight of our trip! The guide gave such a passionate and informed insight into the Spanish tradition. He pitched the level exactly right and the students were enthralled. Thank you so much.

This Bullring is huge , very Moorish in style. You get to sit in the arena, see where the matadors and bulls come out and it has a museum.

Building is well worth the visit. Stunning piece of architecture. The tour was overpriced. We learnt about bullfighting. Wouldn’t go to a bullfight after learning more about it but get that it’s an important part of Spanish culture. I would say visit to see the building but didn’t think the tour was worth it personally.

Madrid's uniquely situated, Colosseum like Plaza de Toros de Las Ventas has always fascinated tourists, but very few are aware of the world's deadliest bulls, about the years of training a matador receives before he faces live bulls for the first time in the arena, few have visited the Las Ventas museum to learn of the history of corridas, few have seen young matador hopefuls train live at the school on its premises, few have accessed Las Ventas' lesser known areas (e.g. the mini hospital, the butchery, the lineup of stuffed champion bulls, etc.) or have watched never before seen videos of the corridas captured at close range and have had the various formalities and the entire experience of a corrida explained in such detail that it plays out before one's eyes. My daughter and I were very fortunate to have the extremely passionate, knowledgeable (and once a matador hopeful!) Guillermo as our guide on the incredible Las Ventas tour which busts every myth that people harbor about corridas and lets you into the fascinating world of what those in the know see as sacred rituals between men and bulls. If there's one "off the beaten path" tour you do in Madrid, let this be the one and remember to request for Guillermo, who will make your experience truly unforgettable. -Felicia Variava Albert, Managing Director, Blaze Tours & Travels Pvt.

We were guided round the Plaza de Toros by Carlos, who did an excellent job of explaining the build up to what happens in the bullring, as well as what should happen in the bullfight itself. This is an impressive place, worth visiting for the architecture alone, though the history is clearly on display here, whether it’s on the plaques on the walls, or the statues dotted around, and it’s easy to get a sense of the occasion.
