Discover Madrid’s highlights aboard an open-top double-decker hop-on hop-off bus. Step aboard and watch the passing sights on both the two interconnecting routes. Admire the spectacular Royal Palace, hop off to visit the Prado museum, and see the mighty Bernabéu stadium. Choose a 1-day or 2-day ticket and hop on and off at any of the 37 stops to create your own sightseeing itinerary.
  • Comprehensive hop-on hop-off tour of Madrid offers two route options
  • See the city from an open-top bus and choose from 37 sightseeing stops
  • Select a 1-day or 2-day ticket to further customize your Madrid itinerary
  • Includes audio headset, tour stop guidebook, map, and attraction discounts
What to Expect
Hop aboard an open-top, double-decker sightseeing bus frequently from morning to evening and set off on Route One or Route Two through Madrid. Choose a 1-day or 2-day ticket option and create your own experience by selecting from 37 available sights along two separate routes (single ticket valid for either route). Along the way, use your personal headset to hear commentary (available in 14 languages) about Madrid’s history and landmarks. On the Blue Route (Route One), take in old Madrid’s architecture and hop off at highlights such as the Prado Museum, the Royal Palace, and the Gran Vía promenade. Along the Green Route (Route Two), see modern Madrid’s Santiago Bernabéu stadium and explore one of the city’s ancient plazas like Puerta del Sol. Alternatively, remain onboard for the entire route and simply enjoy the scenery. Admission to sights is additional, but the tour includes discount vouchers for Madrid attractions, and a bus-stop guidebook and map.
