Let the tourist train take the strain and enjoy a tour of Aranjuez

Great thing to do (although FYI I think they only have trains with Spanish narration, but this may change on weekends). Regardless of the language of the narration, the train ride provides a great tour of the city. I recommend doing the train ride first (it'll drop you off right where it leaves - from the palace) and then you... More

The tickets are sold in a kiosk next to the Palace square, this is a separate ticket from the palace admission. They were about 5e each for the tour in a "people mover" with padded seats that takes about an hour. They take you all through the gardens and the town; and you just sit back and snap your photos....

Agree with Jane's [France] review, but now (April, 2016) there is a commentary in English, and I swear the man has a Mexican accent! The ticket is still E. 5.50 for adults and E5 for seniors and disabled, and E3 for children up to 12 years. Honestly most of the information in the commentary you can get online. There is... More

This was probably a good tour however the gardens are all currently closed following a "tornado" in August. The tour currently takes you from the very interesting palace to the very uninspiring town centre We found the town poor in comparison to say Segovia

Called the Chiquitrén (small train), it departs from just near the Royal Palace. Ticket prices are 5.5 Euros and its round-trip is just under an hour. They offer a stop at Boat museum and you can get on another train that will follow in about an hour. We were mainly interested in just getting a feel for the rest of... More
