Thre museum is wonderful but we appreciated most of all the The guide Macarena was perfect: competent, knowledgeable, attentive, with very good English. 90 minutes were over before we knew this because we were taken away by the excursion. Thank you very much for this memorable experience!

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.

Macarena is an excellent guide. He shares his knowledge in a very simple and entertaining way. Punctual and with phenomenal attention.

Our guide Vassili knew with it. enthusiasm and sensitivity to help us discover certain aspects of Madrid

Nothing to do with an audio guide... a great experience.
