3 Reasons to Take the Prado and Reina Sofia Guided Tour

Many tourists who come to Madrid are debating, quite rightly, whether it is worth taking a Prado and Reina Sofia Museums guided tour. You can always go alone, take your time, and enjoy the freedom to see paintings at your own pace.

But, there is something very special about a guided tour. At least on our guided tour. And how are we so sure of that? Behind us are hundreds of customers who have already tried and received the proof.

In order for you to understand us better, we have prepared especially for you the main reasons that make us so confident in ourselves. There are lots of other reasons! But here are the main ones laid out before you.

1. Because on the Prado and Reina Sofia guided tour you will get a more complete picture about the paintings

Our guided tour of the Prado and Reina Sofia Museum was built based on a method we developed over years of guidance. In each of the paintings we visit, we talk about a number of important aspects. The history of the artist, the history of the painting, and its artistic aspect, or what makes it so special and famous.

So want to know under what circumstances did Velázquez, Goya and Picasso operate? Curious to know when and why the "2nd and 3rd in May" were painted? Want to finally understand what makes "Las Meninas" an international pilgrimage site? Your place is with us!

2. Because we understand that in art tours, sometimes less is much more

The Prado Museum has many thousands of paintings, all of which are good and famous. The Reina Sofia Museum has several thousand more. So how do I choose? What to See? And how can one end the tour without dying of fatigue?

Our tour is the perfect balance between quantity and quality. We will see a limited number of several dozen paintings. But each of them is not only important in itself, but sheds light on many other parts of these museums in particular, and on the history of art in general.
