Great tour and excellent guiding by Helena. Maybe is need more time for this tour because Prado Museum is too big and waiting in line for entrance should be skippes for the groups.

Very professional and enthusiastic guide. She was very helpful too.( Her name is Helena Del Pozo.) She highlighted the most interesting historical details too.

This tour is a excellent introduction to the art in the museum. Our tour guide Carla showed us specific artists and explained their significance in Spanish art. It was nice that you could go back and see other parts of the museum on your own once the tour was complete. Make sure to see the Tintoretto painting of Christ washing the disciples feet. The painting changes as you view it from right to left.

We did the Reina Sofía and Prado tour with Helena, she is awesome! She adapted her message even to my kids for them to enjoy the session, and was wonderful! She was also taking care of everyone. Extremely passionate with her role. Will repeat for sure next time in Madrid!

They cancelled our tour less than a day before we were supposed to go. They refunded our money, but the damage was done. We had no tour of the Prado and it messed with our entire schedule for the day. Also, because of exchange rate fluctuations, we lost money.

We did the two hour Prado museum tour that meets at 9:45 AM through GoCity Madrid with a short female with short dark hair (Leon). There was a party of 4 and a party of 2, so we thought that we would be able to see a lot with a small group. The tour guide was with 2 other guides, so we thought, hey maybe even more attention. Unfortunately, despite reserving the timed tour in advance, she did not buy the tickets until that morning and waited in line. Unfortunately we then had to wait in another line to go through security, resulting in us not entering the exhibit until 10:30. If she bought the timed tickets in advance, which is expected as this tour had to be reserved in advance for a specific time, the security and ticket line would have been much shorter. Why have us come early at 9:45 if you are not prepared? She discussed 6 paintings in the entire Prado, which has thousands of paintings and the tour ended early at 11:30, despite starting late. I would not recommend this tour. It was poor value.

The tour was an excellent overview of the highlights of the Prado. Our guide was able to show us the most precious pieces of the gallery and describe them in detail.

Disorganized guides for too many people. When I asked who was the English guide, I was told it was the woman, then it changed to one of the men. The tour didn't start until about 30-40 mins later. Then our guide would spend such a long time describing details on one painting then would say, later you should see these other paintings. The Prado is full of great masterpieces, I felt that we were shown too few with too much time spent on a handful of them. Midway through, half of our group left because the tour and guide were so bad.
