Apparently, many others had early entry, as the Prado was rather crowded. Nevertheless, our guide was superb, and both museums were very interesting. Both should be on the list for anyone visiting Madrid
If you have little time in Madrid, this is great by way of introduction to these two important museums. Minerva, our guide, was very good--her background as a student of Art History was definitely a plus. Needless to say we saw the highlights. If you get your ticket to El Prado stamped before leaving you may return later, which is exactly what we did. Highly recommend this tour.
The guide is great, the time is too short. You absolutely walk by too many paintings and cannot stop to see them all, though you can stay in the Prado after the tour for as long as you want.
