    Though the Royal Palace was beautiful this is perhaps the worst tour I’ve been on. The tour guide, I believe her name was Sylvia, was very unenthusiastic, on her phone throughout the tour, and was arguing with guests at one point. In addition the tour is advertised as 3 hours

    Dear Molly B, Thank you for taking the time to post a review on your experience with our tour. I would like to comment on the duration of the tour you joined as it is indeed 4h long. Moreover, there has been a change on our operations and it is true we do visit the Ham Museum instead of Hard Rock Café. Our partners have already been advised of that operations change. I sincerely appreciate your feedback on the bilingual tour and will pass on your commentaries to the corresponding manager in order to revise the options we offer. Best regards, Edgar W

    Dear Juanita M, Thank you for posting a review on our Highlights tour and Royal Palace tour. I am sorry if you felt you were not treated appropriately in any way; I will look into it so that such a situation is not repeated. Unfortunately, we cannot wait for any passenger running late, as it would be unfair to those who arrived on time. We make sure to include in all of our vouchers that all of our customers must arrive at least 10 minutes before the departure time in order to avoid issues such as these. Kind regards, Edgar W.

    Our tour guide was excellent and very knowledgeable. The city bus tour was great, and we saw many monuments, buildings, plazas and learned about Madrid's architectural history and neighborhoods. But we especially enjoyed seeing the Royal Palace and glad that we took our tour
