The bus is not entering the old city rather just goes around. It gives some perspective but I would not recommend it as it doesn't show the most beautiful places of the city. We take hop off hop on almost in every big city we visit but in Madrid so far it was a disappointment. It's not a problem with the company just the reality of the city.

It was ok. We booked the one-day ticket but we were not able to get seats upstairs, so it was more like a normal bus for us with dirty windows. I recommend it if you want a glimpse of main historical marks..but be aware that upstairs seats are not always available so you won't have the full experience.

Perfeita. Estive em Madri no inicio de 2023 e utilizei o serviço e acredito que a rota da linha vermelha foi reduzida pois não passou por alguns lugares que fui antes.
