A Wonderful experience
, Jul 2022
Majo was absolutely great. It was very informational. We learned many things that we would never have noticed. She made sure to include our kids too. Excellent from start to finish.
Phenomenal and ask for Majo!
, May 2022
Never have I ever had such an amazing tour of an art museum! First, I didn't realize that The Prado Museum was better than the Louvre (and I've been there), so this was an unexpected surprise. Second and most importantly, Majo was our tour guide and she was PHENOMENAL. She shared information about the 25 or so paintings that she highlighted with such detail and such fervor, that we were mesmerized! (She said this is her Disneyland!) It was absolutely a highlight of our trip to Madrid and we are recommending Majo to everyone we know coming to Madrid and The Prado. After 2 1/2 hours we are so well informed and enthused despite being dog tired on aching feet! My 21 yo daughter will not look at art the same way and we have Majo to thank for that!

We were so excited for this tour and it was canceled by email the morning of the tour. We walked to the predetermined spot that was adjusted to my phone via the app but didn't receive the email until we were already waiting.

Great experience.

The tour guide was very good and showed us the unique pieces of art in the museum. The museum is huge and it is difficult to find out the unique pieces. The tour guide explained every piece in details and the history behind it which makes you look at it from a different angle.
Best art guide in Madrid!
, Mar 2022
Majo is one of the best and most knowledgeable guides in Madrid. She took me on a special guided tour of the Prado, revealing important details of each specific artpiece that made it stand out to me. I understood the influence of Titular artists in the evolution of fine art in Spain. We were not rushed at all and it was a fantastic experience. Thoroughly Recommend her!
Elena Is Awesome

5 Stars. Fantastic from start to finish. Elena was professional, personable, and passionate about the art. More than that, she was extremely knowledgeable and made the art come alive for us. I can’t imagine there’s a better guide out there. Thanks again Elena!

We had an amazing guide, brilliantly interesting! Thank you Govi for your excellent presentation of Velasquez and Goya, of the evolution of their art! You are a gem!
Highly recommended

We could never have appreciated what we were looking at without our guide. She was very good at explaining how the painters took into account their audience and how to view each piece. Highly recommended!

We had an amazing tour with Iker. He knows the Prado inside and out. He was thoughtful and went out of his way to make sure we had the very best experience.
Prado museum review
, Sep 2019
The guide had mistakenly thought the meeting place would be at the Prado museum. We were waiting at the Casa Americana as instructed by Viator. After 1/2 hour we reconnected. Despite the late start & extra cost incurred in using my phone to locate her, we found her very knowledgeable & gave a thorough analysis on all the masterpieces.

Dino is an informative and entertaining tour guide. We wanted an introduction to the city and to the Prado and this tour was really helpful. The guide was on time and prepared and went above and beyond to show us what we wanted to see.

Me encantó la experiencia, Elena nos hizo ver las obras de manera más profunda con sus análisis y datos históricos. Fue la mejor manera que pudimos escoger para visitar este museo. Lo recomiendo 100%.
