This was the first royal palace tour I've had in years. I used to live in Europe and visited palaces frequently, so this was nice to revisit. My partner was with me as well and this was her first royal palace visit so I knew we had to get a tour so she could learn as much as possible. Not only was the palace awesome but our guide, Martín, was AWESOME. Easily one of the best tours I've had. He was friendly, knowledgeable, and had our entire group laughing at several different points. Not only did I love it but my partner loved it and so did the rest of our group. Getting in was smooth sailing, definitely book a tour in advance to avoid the GIANT line that forms (seriously, it winded all the way down the front courtyard!). Loved this tour and definitely recommend to anyone who loves learning cool information about historical spaces.
The tour is perfect! The bus is comfortable, the tour guide speaks several languages and her English was perfect. The lunch was fabulous and super yummy. The amount of time given to tour each town was just right and we were able to fit some tourist shopping in too.
We were very pleased with everything except that we had expected the lecture about each of the locations to be longer than 2 - 3 minutes. We suggest you add the words "very brief" to your on-line description of what's included in the tour or lengthen the talk.
Our guide Patricia was amazing! She knew so much history and the answers to most of my questions! I loved her and she was great and taught us so much about the palace. She was awesome!
Enjoyable tour. Easy going pace and informative guide commentary. The Palace is well worth the visit. One of the most interesting and resplendently furnished palaces in Europe.
