If you want to see Madrid, and I mean actually SEE Madrid, then taking this tour at the beginning of your trip will be the best money you can spend. We both love to travel, and have an appreciation and background in history but our...More
This was an excellent tour. We only had a short time in Madrid, and this tour really made our
experience there much better. It gave us a perspective that we couldn't have received in such a short time. Context is always worthwhile!
Knowing little about Spanish painters, we decided we needed an expert to guide us through the highlights of the Prado. Andrea of Context Travel was our guide and she did an excellent job of taking us through the collection and explaining the importance of the...More

The Context tour is a private tour and it is not booked through the Prado. This was our 2nd Context tour and they were both in English since that is what we requested. Context secures your tickets and provides the guide. I suppose one could pick any language they need. I believe Context does group tours which are less expensive, but I am not sure of their language guidelines. If you have limited time and can splurge you pretty much get what you what, which in our case was a tour for three people in English focusing on the period and art we wanted to see. Hope this is helpful.
