At the Royal Palace with no queues with a private guide

Don't waste your time waiting for hours to get into the Palace! This 90 minute guided tour will show you the fascinating history, architecture, art and legends of this wonderful Royal Palace, all without seeing your valuable time wasted in a lineup.

The palace is located in the place where Madrid was born and is used today for court ceremonies and official entertaining. We'll visit together the State Rooms and the Royal Armory. After visiting the royal Palace we'll continue to a nice walking tour to discover the highlights of the Old Madrid. The aim of the walking tour is to show you the Old Madrid (Austrias Quarter) and its typical atmosphere, architecture and beautiful narrow streets full of restaurants, typical bars, "Mesons" etc.


Madrid de los Austrias: This historical area is named like that because many of the monuments located here date back to XVI and XVII centuries when the Hapsburgh Dinasty(los Austrias) ruled Spain. We'll see together Plaza de Oriente, Royal Palace-Palacio Real, Catedral Nuestra Señora de la Almudena, Mayor Street, Plaza de la Villa, St. Miguel Market, Plaza Mayor and Plaza Puerta del Sol. Any suggestion about any other monument or site to visit will be welcome.

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: Metro Opera or at your hotel while it's located downtown.

End location: Downtown. At your choice.

Duration: 4 hours

As the Palace is a working royal palace, security and opening arrangements may be subject to change at short notice. In that case we can do a 4 hour walking tour or we can combine the walking tour with a Prado Museum guided tour.
