Private Tours

Is it worthwhile to book a private tour of Madrid instead of utilizing the Hop on Hop off buses and the public transportation? It seems as though private tours in Europe are so much more expensive than in the US.

I would use public transportation. Group the sights you want to see so that you can walk from one sight to the other. Most of the sights downtown are walkable.

if you go to the tourist office in Plaza Mayor, they offer some group tours in English for 2-3 hours showing different sights of the city. Very interesting and worth the money.

As for private tours, I guess you can find them, but as you said they are expensive as ppl in Europe usually take a DIY approach when visiting a city (guidebook, metro ticket and camera)
