History of Art from the Renaissance to Picasso with a private guide
Do you love museums but have so many plans in Madrid that you don't know how to fit them in? Did you know that the Prado Museum has one of the highest world ratings between the total number of pictures shown and masterpieces? This is the perfect tour to get "the yeast" of the most important National Museums in Spain. They are next to each other and the tour will give you the insight you need to get not just the information, but the experience of their masterpieces within their rightful context.
Only one but, the Reina Sofia Museum is closed on Tuesdays, that day I can offer you other tour but not this particular one, we could either go to the Thyssen Museum, to the Royal Palace or complete with a walking tour instead.
Please, if you are a party over 7, we MUST buy prepaid tickets for the Prado Museum.
We will meet either at your hotel or straight in front of the Prado Museum. After the tour we'll have a little break and continue towards the next museum, either walking or by bus or taxi. We can decide on the spot. The tour will end in the Reina Sofia Museum, where we will have visited the main floor. You will keep both admission tickets in case you want to go back to the museums later in the day.

Susana was the perfect guide for our group of two women and four teenagers - the perfect amount of enthusiasm and factual information to keep us all engaged at the Prado and Reina Sofia. We appreciated the process she used to bring us through the history behind the paintings we saw, from the Renaissance and its relevance through to the most Modern paintings we saw. Thank you for an excellent afternoon together.
