Prado Museum Private Tour with Ticket Included!

We very much enjoyed our tour of the Prado museum with Mariano. He is clearly very knowledgeable about and interested in his subject. What made this tour even more memorable was the fact that Mariano often shared with us interesting, less-known details and stories around a painting. We highly recommend booking a tour with Mariano!
