The whole experience was excellent! The guide Alejandro was a young, experienced, happy and cheerful guy who had a lot of knowledge about the Royal Palace in Madrid and the surrounding places! The timeline of the whole tour was on the spot without any delays or waiting in lines. Also, Alejandro was very polite to all the members of the group and the working stuff of the museum. He answered to our questions with patience and was interested in our opinions and historic knowledge. The application was helpful with reminders about the appointment time and place. Alejandro was fluent in his English communication! Also, Alejandro recommended us to visit the Real Armeria which was very interesting to see and shouldn't be missed.

As I entered the palace, I was awestruck by the magnificent structure, paintings and furnishings. Having a tour guide only enhanced the experience. Lydia was able to point out things that I would have missed. She was also able to answer our questions. The palace was definitely worth the visit.

Wonderful tour through the palace with our guide, Sergio who was very informative. Beautiful palace and interesting history.
