Madrid, renowned for its boulevards, parks, and architecture, earns its reputation as grand, classical, and imposing.
Madrid, Spain's capital since 1561, has played a major role in much of the country's history, serving as the backdrop to the Moors, Spanish monarchy, French occupation, civil war, and dictatorship in the 20th century under General Franco. Today Madrid is a graceful and elegant city, celebrated for its tapas, chocolate, and vast art collections, including the masterpieces at the Prado Museum. Explore the majesty of Madrid with Context's private and small group guided tours.

So glad we decided to book this tour. Andrea was an excellent teacher. Her passion for art history came through in her explaining the master pieces.
Barbara did an excellent job! The only thing we can think of to improve the tour is to have a location halfway through the tour that one could sit down for about 10-15 minutes. (This feedback may be influenced by the fact that we took in a 4 hour long tapas tour last night that involved no sitting until the last 45-60 minutes of the tour!)
1. Despite the fact that this was a private tour there was little tailoring upon request. 2. Contrary to other Context travel tours, this one felt much more like fact cramming with less story telling.
