A great way to see this marvellous city. Had a 2 day pass, and whilst the first morning was dismal and raining, it did improve greatly pm. The second day was full sunshine so it was a pleasure to be up top in the sun. We did route 1 on day 1 and route 1 and 2 the second day. Route 2 takes you much farther out but does include the Bernabeau stadium which has major works at present so touring was not possible. What is striking about this City is the fantastic architecture, and the hop on hop off is ideal for this. Excellent value.

This is an excellent and an afforbable way to see the city that I would suggest to anybody. However, many of the audio terminals on the buses Do not work. Therefore, if you are on a bus that is full and you happen to sit at an audio terminal that doesn't work, you are out of luck. Please fix this!

Madrid is a beautiful city, you can’t go to Spain without going to Madrid. The architecture is amazing. I gave it 4 stars not because of the place but because of the people, they can be very snobby, not the guide though, but that didn’t stop me from having a good time.
