What will you find?

On this half-day tour from Madrid, enjoy the beautiful architecture and regal atmosphere of Aranjuez, which lies 28 miles (46km) south of Madrid at the confluence of the Tagus and Jarama rivers.

Your local guide will lead you the Palacio Real (Royal Palace), part of Aranjuez’s UNESCO World Heritage Cultural Landscape. It is a Spanish Royal Site – the spring residence of Spanish kings since the late 1800s. Admire the decorative styles, and see the Throne Room of Elizabeth II, the Prince's Gardens, the Parterre and the Island. The palace gardens are so beautiful, they inspired Spanish composer Joaquin Rodrigo to compose his Concierto de Aranjuez.

After relaxing in the gardens, you’ll head to the Museum of Royal Feluccas, which exhibits boats, used by Philip V and Elizabeth II, among others, to cruise the Tagus rivers.

  1. Great place to visit
  2. The best thing about this tour for me was that it was short and started at 3pm so I could do other things that day. The Royal palace at Aranjuez was really quite impressive. In fact, I enjoyed this tour much more than the Royal Palace in Madrid. Less people, almost equally as impressive (as the Royal Palace in Madrid) and slower paced as we got to enjoy the sun in the Royal Garden and took a walk around whilst enjoying the lovely spring blooms. Our guide, Manolo, was also very patient, nice and knowledgable. There was one lady in wheelchairs and I observed that Manolo looked after her really well, whilst keeping the rest of us going happily. He mixed facts with jokes and was interested in what he was saying, not just merely stating basic facts. Overall, a highly recommended tour.
  3. Interesting place, but not much to visit. If you don't have the luxury of extra tin Me, don't fret if you can't make it.
  4. Unfortunately out of all of the tours we took in Madrid and Barcelona, this one was our biggest disappointment. The grounds of the palace were pretty basic and all of the individuals on the tour were Spanish speaking except us so the tour was mostly given in Spanish with a sentence here and there in English. It was difficult to pick up much information. The guide tried to engage us but it just didn't work out very well. The ship museum was good. The boats were interesting to see and read about. I guess I expected more from this tour. If I had it to do over, I guess I might just purchase a train ticket to Aranjuez and get the English headphone tour of the palace that I saw walking in if I bothered to go at all. The city just didn't impress me very much.
  5. very bad experience, Tour was not what was expected. there was no casino stop as was promised when the booking was made
