Description

Explore the Spanish royal family's official home – all 135,000 square meters of it! Your guide will take you through the majestic throne room, up the marble staircases, navigate the portrait gallery, and show you the fearsome weaponry in the armories. You'll get all the info and context you need to understand this monster residence.

The Spanish monarch's fantastically frescoed palace is officially the largest royal residence in Europe, which means it's very, very big indeed.

And with over 3,000 stunning rooms, you really need an expert guide to get the best out of your visit. Luckily, you'll get just that, skipping the winding queues and getting straight into the palatial action for an all-access tour of the estate.

The Painting Gallery is one of the countless highlights, with works by Caravaggio, Goya, and Sorolla, and the Royal Pharmacy is an extra nosy treat – you can see the real prescriptions given to the kings and queens over the years!

Cap it off with unbeatable views of the surrounding city, and you have a royal affair to remember!

Our guide, Belen, from Amigos Tour did an excellent job in providing an interesting account of the historical context of each room we visited in the palace, with coherent and very good English as well as Spanish. The only thing to watch out for is to find the right plaza to join the tour. We first went to the square between the opera house and the palace rather than the square in front of the opera house and opposite the Opera metro station, but we found Amigos Tour eventually.
The Tiqets team provided email communications and information in a timely manner, which is reassuring. The taxi driver info is great to have in advance. It’s a very professional delivery of service.

Good not to have to queue to get in
Informative guide
Bilingual tour made the tour unnecessarily long and stopped the flow of conversation between guide and group

Slightly confusing regards meeting point, read instructions on tickets carefully.
However, tour itself was excellent. Paula the guide was fantastic - very informative, warm and funny, with excellent English followed by the same info in Spanish for each room visited. 2 hours in total.
The palace is grand!
