Absolutely brilliant guide David was informative, interesting and really made the tour a great experience. I would highly recommend the tour - so much information and facts about Madrid. Our guide loves Madrid and his enthusiasm was brilliant. If you are visiting Madrid this is a must do!

I think the Prado itself was the best part and the reason we joined the walk. The monuments were a side bar - no real need for them.

Ernesto was very nice and welcoming and obviously very knowledgeable. We really enjoyed the tour of the Prado museum, and I feel like I learned quite a lot about art there. Also Ernesto gave some nice recommendations for things for us to do with the kids after the tour. It's nice that the tour wasn't too long, time was just about right before we all got really tired. If I were to make a suggestion, the only thing I would say is that from the description I thought there would be more information/tour during the walk to the museum. Overall we enjoyed the tour and appreciated the friendly tour guide.
