madrid city tourWould you like to see Madrid comfortably sitting on a bus? It is most definitely a good option for those who have just arrived in Madrid, who then get a general idea of the city in order to get to know its best places and locate themselves more precisely in this big city.

There are many options for this but the most famous one is Madrid City Tour, the famous red double-decker buses that the locals are used to seeing everywhere on the streets. They operate 365 days a year with different timetables, depending on whether it is high or low season, and the price for adults is of 21 euros, which includes the use of unlimited travel on the buses on the chosen day.

The tickets can be bought on the buses, in hotels, travel agencies, at the Madrid City Tour information centre and also on their website. On the same website you can also download and check the main routes that the bus goes on, with stops every 8 minutes in high season (14 in low season) at important spots such as the Prado Museum, the Cibeles, Gran Vía or the Teatro Real. The traveller, by getting off at these stops, can use this bus to discover the city’s history and the value of its most emblematic buildings but also as a way of transport between the city’s landmarks.

Another option is Bus Turístico Madrid, with a lower price than the previous one: 15.90 euros instead of 21. Among its pros, as its website states, is the presence of a tourist guide that describes the points of interest and is at the travellers’ disposal to answer any questions they may have.

Lastly, the NeoExperience website offers similar routes for 24 euros, with a tour around similar places to those of its competition, such as the surrounding area of the Plaza Mayor and the Puerta del Sol, the fountain of Cibeles and Neptuno or the Las Ventas bullring.

These are various options to complement your stay in Madrid with a guided tourist route. From our three-star hotel next to the Puerta del Sol we are a stone’s throw away from any of the stops of these services. Yet another reason to stay with us.
