Fun and informative visit to Palacio Real!
We enjoyed our tour of the Palacio Real with Enrique. He was very knowledgeable and passionate about the palace and we learned so much about the history of Spain, the royal family and each room during the tour. The palace is amazing to visit and having someone to guide us along the way made it much more enjoyable than doing it on our own!
Great tour and experience
Walking past the long line to the palace was the first sign that we made a smart decision booking this tour. Jaime was an excellent and knowledgable tour guide, who tailored what he shared to our interests. We lucked out as the only couple on this tour, which made it a really special experience. The palace is beautiful and ornate, but we found that armory to be very interesting as well.
Excellent guide very knowledgeable, clear meeting instructions Just the right length. I would recommend this tour as you get much more information about what you are seeing and a good history of the history of the monarchy.
Great tour, great guide ....
Had the pleasure of touring the Palacio Real de Madrid with Enrique and he really knows his stuff, knew what to point out, what was worth knowing and what wasn't, was full of knowledge of the history not just of the Palacio Real de Madrid but also of Madrid and Spain so made it all the more fun.
We had booked the semi-private tour but as it was just my wife and I we had the private tour experience.
Would definitely recommend Enrique and the tour.
Excellent tour with Luis David!
We had an AMAZING time on this tour with Luis David. Our tour was in Spanish. Time flew by as Luis David explained in great detail the many palace rooms, answered our MANY questions. I highly recommend the royal palace tour with Luis David for an enjoyable and educational experience.
