Madrid Small-Group Walking Tour Including Skip-the-Line Royal Palace Guided Tour

Visit the beautiful Royal Palace during this Madrid walking tour

Greet your guide near Plaza Ramales and begin your walking tour of the city. Set out at a leisurely stroll and listen as your guide acquaints you with past and present stories of Madrid. Skip the line inside the Royal Palace of Madrid, famed for its title as one of the most beautiful palace complexes in Europe.

Admire the majestic façade and then head to Plaza de Oriente to absorb the bustling charm of the central square. See, too, the verdant Sabatini Gardens and Campo del Moro, the former residence of the Spanish royal family. Venture within to admire its opulent interior and the tapestries and classic art that adorns the walls. Wander past examples of gorgeous Baroque and Renaissance architecture and peek inside traditional Spanish tavernas as the scent of sizzling chorizo wafts outside.

Refuel with a complimentary drink at a traditional café and then bid your guide and group farewell at another central location.

The best way I can describe this tour was on our last night, we all went around the table at dinner and named our favorite part of the vacation. This Tour and our guide Aranxta were everyone's favorite. She was absolutely the best guide and made this tour what it was! I cannot say enough great things about her and Julia Travel.

We loved this tour because it was quick and informative! Our guide was very nice and she did a great job explaining all the history. Touring the palace felt like entering a movie set so unreal yet all real and beautiful! Would recommend to anyone looking to see the palace.

My 12 year old daughter and I took this Walking Tour with another 7 people. It was very nice. Our guide Silvia was very knowledgeable and took us for a short walk around a few churches and squares before leading us to the wonderful 2700-plus room Royal Palace. Of course only 20 rooms are made available to the public and that was quite enough. We had enough time for photos and to ask questions. Worth the 3.5 hours, and you can naturally stay on the palace grounds longer if you like. When you leave, you can see the long line (queue) of people waiting to get in that you skipped ahead of with this tour. That alone made it worthwhile!

Loved this tour. Our tour guide James was very knowledgeable about Madrid and Tapas culture. We were in a small mixed group where we all got along well. I thought the tour would drag given the late finishing time but it was such fun we didn’t notice. Would recommend this tour

Extremely happy with the Madrid small group walking tour. We had two guides, 1 for the tour of the town and 1 for the royal palace. Both guides spoke great English, and both guides were very charming and knowledgeable.
