Full description

Join a private tour of the Prado Museum, one of the greatest art museums in the world housing a great collection of European western art, from the 12th to the 19th century. View the many masterpieces here and listen to explanations of each work provided by your experienced guide.

Besides works of the major artists like Hieronymus Bosch, Raphael, El Greco, Rubens, Roger Van der Weyden, and Dürer, you will get to know everything about Spain's most famous painters; Goya and Velazquez.

You will encounter "The Third of May 1808" which, complete in 1814, is about the execution by Napoleon's troops painted by Goya with great drama in which he contrasts the coldness of the soldiers in gray uniforms with the colorful anonymous citizens who are going to die.

You will also discover the most famous work of Velazquez, "Las Meninas", which is a scene depicting a normal day in the Alcázar of Madrid with members of King Philip IV's family and Velazquez himself. "Las Meninas" has been the inspiration for later artists like Goya and Picasso.

Hire a private visit to the PRADO Museum for 2 hours. Being the most satisfactory, the experience of touring the Prado Museum with the help of a Professional guide. Where the Treatment, Professionalism and attention were the flag of our host, who in addition to showing us the most representative canvases of the Prado, discovered curiosities and incidents that have suffered throughout history. Incidents that are reflected in the canvases but that without an indication or guide go unnoticed by most visitors

Our guide Alicia spoke excellent English. She led us with great expertise to selected masterpieces, gave information about the concrete works as well as the painters and their art-historical environment. This was embedded in an exciting narrative with some unexpected "candy". Highly Recommended! But be careful: the price for the tour does not include admission!

Absolutely perfect guide. In 2 hours we had a very good cultural tour of the Prado and its main works. We learned a lot from Laeticia, an art historian. Excellent guide. Lots of anecdotes about the paintings. We were delighted! I highly recommend this visit. For the most passionate and less tired, do the one in 3 hours.
