Spanish Versailles
Susan_U
, Oct 2021
Our guide, Rocia, was wonderful. The palace is a must see experience. You tour through 25 rooms of the 3000 rooms in the palace, all of which are absolutely beautiful and lavish. It is a Spanish version of Versailles within, as there are no gardens. The tour lasts 2 hours, which is just right.

Couldn't find the tour guide, so we had to call viator. Then they didn't give us the correct food, as the food allergies weren't told to the Cafe, and we do not speak spanish

Dear Martin_H, We are very sorry for what you are telling us. We will investigate what happened. Thank you

David was so knowledgeable and EXCITED about the history of the Royal Palace. He was thorough (yet didn't drag on) and was able to answer all questions. Highly recommend this tour! We do not feel that we would have gotten all the details he shared if we went on our own / used the audio guide from the palace.

Ivan was the best! Gave in in-depth history of the Royal Palace and all of its inhabitants thru the centuries. Not only was he knowledgeable, but also very friendly and extremely courteous. We were very lucky to have Ivan as our tour guide.

Tour was about as expected. Palace does not allow visitors to take pictures, but that is not unique to this tour.

The tour guide Irene was exceptionally knowledgeable and helpful. The Tour guide explained the history and all the background info behind the Palace. The start of the tour was on time and going thru the palace was planned and executed flawlessly so as to avoid the other groups crowd run. Absolutely recommend the tour with Irene as tour guide.

Irene, our guide, was very professional and knowledgeable. The Royal Palace although a bit more modest than others in Europe is worth a visit!

fue dificil encontrar a...

fue dificil encontrar a nuestra guia ya que no se encontraba en el punto de encuentro exacto. el recorrido dentro del palacio fue excelente, con muy buenas explicaciones y recomendaciones por parte del guia Rocio, lo unico malo es que fue en dos idiomas a la vez lo cual toma el doble de tiempo por parte del guia para explicar y de nosotros esperando para avanzar
icon Response from Host , Nov 2021
Buenos días, hay veces que debido a situaciones ajenas a nosotros el guía no puede colocarse en el punto exacto, pero suele colocarse a 2 metros de manera que se le puede reconocer. Muchas gracias por su comentario, nos alegra saber que disfrutó del tour. Esperamos verle pronto. Saludos
