Majo was absolutely great. It was very informational. We learned many things that we would never have noticed. She made sure to include our kids too. Excellent from start to finish.
Phenomenal and ask for Majo!

Never have I ever had such an amazing tour of an art museum! First, I didn't realize that The Prado Museum was better than the Louvre (and I've been there), so this was an unexpected surprise. Second and most importantly, Majo was our tour guide and she was PHENOMENAL. She shared information about the 25 or so paintings that she highlighted with such detail and such fervor, that we were mesmerized! (She said this is her Disneyland!) It was absolutely a highlight of our trip to Madrid and we are recommending Majo to everyone we know coming to Madrid and The Prado. After 2 1/2 hours we are so well informed and enthused despite being dog tired on aching feet! My 21 yo daughter will not look at art the same way and we have Majo to thank for that!
You should do this.

Request Majo - she was excellent with our children, 11 and 13, and kept our interest for the whole tour. Her presentation was logical, educational, and memorable.
