Wonderful! Our guide was personable and knowledgeable about the museum and the art. She knew that she had a brief amount of time to educate us and she used our time wisely without rushing. Her passion for art was obvious and brought the paintings alive!

The guided tour was helpful because it gave a context to the collection. The story behind the Thyssen family and their collection is interesting, and would be missed without this tour.

Anna was a great guide. The museum was so much larger than I expected and she showed us everything. She had a good knowledge and passion for the art. The collection was beautiful.

It went well. The explanations were very good. The view of Madrid at night is very interesting.

Really good guide. Fantastic knowledge of Madrid and she speak really good English
