Sightseeing med panoramautsikt over Madrid
Head through the Barrio de la Morería and gain insight into the city’s medieval origins. Listen as your guide describes the Royal Alcazar of Madrid — an ancient Arabic fortress — and admire the imposing façade of the Royal Palace of Madrid. In Madrid Rio, cruise from Puente del Rey to Puente de Segovia and take in top city sights along the way.
Hop out of your coach to admire Baroque and Renaissance architecture up close in impressive town squares such as Plaza Mayor and Plaza de la Villa — once frequented by the regal King Philip II of Spain in the 16th century. Take in top city attractions such as the famous Cybele's Fountain (Fuente de la Cibeles) — widely considered among Madrid's most significant symbols — and the magnificent neoclassical Alcalá Gate (Puerta de Alcalá).
Travel down Gran Vía and Paseo de la Castellana to Barrio Salamanca to gain insight into the modern Madrid of today. See the imposing Santiago Bernabéu Stadium and marvel at the impressive Las Ventas — considered by many to be the home of traditional Spanish bullfighting.
Continue on to Plaza de Colón and alight from your coach before heading on foot to Madrid’s famous Hard Rock Cafe for an included drink. After 2.5 hours exploring the top city attractions of the Spanish capital, head back to your starting point to conclude your tour.

the palace was too good worth a visit, in spite of missing our bus the lady in office helped us in getting to another stop which i really appreciate it and we started from next stop
Perfect way to see Madrid during a long layover. Historical, informative and time to stretch your legs.
Had expected to see more, Mostly disappointed as everything shown was on the left side of the bus and we were on the right.
Disappointed with Julia's Travel guide on this afternoon tour. Although it was a rainy Friday afternoon, and we saw everything as indicated on the tour, she made no effort to make our group's experience a positive one. We were dropped off to fend of ourselves during a 15 minute break to find a coffee and washroom and then when we all returned punctually at the bus, the driver and our guide were no were to be found. Fortunately, we had a fabulous guide from Julia's Travel on another tour the next day!
In this tour, you will probably be traveling with other groups. You may feel it to be disjointed, especially if it's being given in 3 languages simultaneously. But overall, you will learn interesting facts about the current state of Madrid. Do not let your children sleep on the bus. Yes, someone tried. Always wear your seatbelt. And do not walk around the bus while it's in motion. Yes, someone also tried that. Such is the law. If the police see it, they will not fine the bus driver, tour guide or tour company. Only you get to pay a fine of 200 Euros. Not optional. Do try to adult.
