Helena was fantastic. Fifteen minutes early, supremely knowledgeable and has a passion for the art. Ask her any question about some detail in a piece of art and she has at least three more minutes of information. I could tell when we turned right and had to leave a hallway of art alone to meet our two hour deadline she would have preferred to take us through each piece. A pleasure to learn from her.

The guide, Vilena (may have misspelled her name), handled very well the group of 12, switching between Spanish and English effortlessly. It is so beneficial to start exploring the museum with a guide, and then continue on your own, otherwise it can be overwhelming.

The Prado has endlessly long queues but we got in first and had very knowledgeable guides who spoke English fluently and gave comprehensive background history on the paintings viewed. I think it would be quite impossible to cover some of the most famous paintings without a guide.
