Irene was fantastic, she spent time helping you understand the history of the the work, the technical construction and how to identify the symbolic references for the eras the various prices depicted. This was incredibly useful when visiting the Reina Sofia the next day as you could see the various influences from multiple artists on the works in both museums. Fantastic experience.
The guided tour was a great experience. The tour guide brought us right away to the most interesting paintings and her knowledge was extraordinary. And she also explained to us how to enjoy the outstanding Prado museum in the most efficient way.
Iker is knowledgable, speaks great English and if he did not know the answer to a question, which was very unusual, he said so. He also listened to what we wanted to see and took us to the things we asked to visit. Great host!
For someone who is keen on art but knows very little on pre 20th century art I found the tour invaluable in highlighting the most important paintings/artists in what is a massive, overwhelming collection at the Prado.
Loved the experience with the tour guide. The interesting part is that the guid knew how to explain the painting from different angles in order to understand the painting techniques. I highly recommend it.
