Overview
With more than 3,000 rooms, the Royal Palace (Palacio Real) in Madrid offers visitors a wealth of treasures. Make sure you see the best of the palace on a guided tour designed to enhance your experience of the top Madrid landmark. Plus, a skip-the-line admission ticket means you’ll avoid queues often in excess of one hour.
What to Expect
Your tour begins at an easy-to-find meeting point outside of the Royal Palace, where you’ll greet your guide and begin exploring some of the palace’s 3,000 rooms. Admire highlights, such as the Throne Room and the Hall of Alabarderos, and look out for paintings by the likes of Caravaggio and Velazquez.
See, too, the former chambers of previous kings of Spain and learn about the palace’s rich history through your guide’s commentary. After an hour and a half, you’ll be free to continue exploring the palace independently.

Impromptu Private Tour

Our tour guide (Susana) was very punctual. We were there fifteen minutes early for our tour at 11:30, and at 11:31 we were off on our tour. The other couple that was to be joining us did not show up. So, we got a private...More

Palace Tour

Tour was interesting but you see the tiniest fraction of the 3000+ rooms. The armory was a pleasant added surprise.

Place great! Tour not so much

Spent 45 minutes before the tour even started. Group was huge and they split group in two and was still large. Used head sets that had very poor audio quality. Palace was very much worth it. Do self guided next time.More

Ok tour

I didn’t realize this was a bilingual tour. Most of the other tours had separate English and Spanish tours. I felt bad for the tour guide having to say everything twice in both languages. Worth being able to skip the line but I wouldn’t do...More
