Enrique is an excellent guide. He was our guide for two days. The first day he took on a tour of the city center. The second day he took us through the big three museums. He also does a lot of gourmet tours. I would highly recommend him for all types of tours. He is very knowledgeable and friendly. He was also highly responsive when planning our trip and flexible as we finalized plans. He runs his own company and has been a guide for 15 years.

This was our first trip to Spain and we had limited knowledge of the artistic history - this private tour built a foundation for us in a very captivating chronological manner. The narrative tied together influences over the centuries. Many paintings are amazing -- but much more interesting with guidance. Although we all need to have our own interpretation about an artist's meaning it certainly helps to have that historical context! Our guide Gonzalo provided the information needed to better appreciate a museum that could not be fully appreciated in one lifetime. Hopefully we can return someday!

Marta was our guide. She is such a nice person and so knowledgeable about Spanish history as well as art history. El Prado is sensory overload but Marta made it easy and interesting and fun— it appealed to me and my 22 and 20 year olds. I highly recommend Mad Snail and Marta specifically!

Excellent tour! Marta’s knowledge of the collection was phenomenal. She gave a clear contextual history of the collection and techniques and tailored the tour to our tastes and abilities. Could not have expected more. Perfect, engaging, passionate. Would return with her again and again to revisit the collection and absorb her experience and enthusiasm. Highly recommended!

Tour guide Marta was amazing! Super knowledgeable, full of fascinating information, and - even for me with a shorter attention span - the three hour tour flew by. The tour was fun, we covered a lot of ground at the Prado, and were able to customize the tour to what we wanted to see. Marta is passionate about art, excitable, and was able to tell the interesting stories behind the art. All in all, a wonderful diversion. Highly recommend.
