    • Easy to find bus stops, lots of regular buses and helpful tour guides...

    • Very courteous and smiling staff, buses run every 10 minutes or so. As always the best way to see a city you are visiting in just a day or two, although in Madrid just one day is enough, as it's quite compact and easy to explore on foot

    • Great Tour!!

      We did a two day pass and it was great. As there are two lines, we did one each day and worked out perfect....
