Overview

Enjoy a guided tour of two of Madrid’s best attractions - the Palacio Real de Madrid and Parque del Buen Retiro. The tour of Royal Palace comes with a convenient skip-the-line ticket to give you a priority access to the administrative quarters of the Spanish Monarchy while that of the El Retiro Park will take you through the best attractions hidden in one of the largest parks of Madrid.

Incepted in the late 18th century with the first occupancy of King Carlos III, the stunning Baroque palace is home to a riveting collection of tapestries, ceramics, old watches, swords and army and famous artworks by grand masters such as Goya and Velázquez. Regale in the turbulent history of one of the greatest European nations as you explore the beautiful palace including the Throne Room, the Hall of Mirrors, the Banquet Hall and the private Royal Apartments, as well as the lovely English Gardens which has two splendid neo-classical fountains and some incredible flower arrangements.

Our next top, the gorgeous El Retiro, is spread over a magnificent 350 acres and dotted with over 15000 species of trees. Popular with both locals and tourists alike, the park is home to the pristine Retiro Pond, the marvellous Crystal Palace, the exquisite Gate of Philip IV, the fascinating Royal Observatory, as well as a host of eye-popping sculptures and fountains. Witness all these iconic highlights with our expert guide who will also treat you to intriguing anecdotes about the city and the El Retiro park. You will also have a chance to indulge in fun rowing session on the lake or just laze around on the grass before heading home - a perfectly recreational half day in the pretty city of Madrid!
