After the steps of the Royal Family of Spain

During this tour we'll get to know the main facts of the Spanish Royal Family. The Prado Museum is actually their family photo album, and in a very entertaining way we will get to learn about the main royal dynasties that have ruled the destinies of Spain. Without forgetting the artistic point of view, after all, a great part of the collection was theirs until the 19th century, and mirrors their likings and preferences, thus their personality. After that we will move to the other side of the Old City in order to get to know in person their last residence, until the year 1931, the royal apartments at the Royal Palace, a fantastic experience which will complete all the knowledge acquired in the Prado Museum. Maximum 7 participants.

Larger parties ask for conditions.

There is only one BUT, as the Royal Palace is not just a Museum but it is also used for official events by the Royal Family, its closing is sometimes announced last minute and we need to have a Plan B, in case that happened. We'll see


During this tour we will get to know about the Spanish Royal Family from the Catholic Monarchs to our days. In order to do that we will visit the Prado Museum and the Royal Palace, which has been their residence till 1931.
In order to go from one venue to the other we will use either taxis or metro.

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: Plaza de Isabel II, corner with calle Arenal. Metro (Subway) Opera.
Very near Royal Palace.

End location: At the Prado Museum

Duration: 4 hours 30 min.

As the Royal Palace could close any day with a short term advise, I would suggest to replace its visit for a Walking Tour in the Habsburg District, (16th-17th centuries) in case that happened.


Depending on meeting point, taxi, subway or walking

What’s Included

4 and a half hour long tour from beginning to end. If you want pick-up at your accommodation, the clock will start running from meeting point time.

Ask for quotation for weekends from March to October

Estimated Local Cash Needed

27 Eur - Admission fees to both Museums per person, 24€.
Coffee break, at least 3€ per person.
Sometimes the museums change the price for the admission fee, if that happened I would let you know asap. As I am an Official Tourist Guide, you don't need to pay for my entrance fees. Transportation from Prado museum to Royal Palace, a taxi could cost around 7 or 9 Eur.

What’s Extra

Entrance fees to museums. You don't need to buy them in advance, I can skip the line, that will give us more freedom of movement.

A Recent Review of this tour

Susana and her tour was amazing! She clearly has breadth/depth of knowledge of the Palace/Prado. She was very engaging and made special effort to connect/engage with my two children (14 &12). We learned about and saw things that we would not have noticed without Susana. She is also very organized and her English is perfect. We enjoyed her so much we wished the tour was longer :-)! I highly recommend Susana and I will be recommending her to my friends. Thank you Susana
