Your day will begin early in the morning when you meet your bilingual guide at the Plaza Ramales. Board the comfortable bus for the 45km ride to El Escorial. Your first stop will be the grand Royal Monastery, a legacy of the former Spanish Empire.

    The Escorial Royal Monastery is very beautiful, but it cannot be photographed. It is a magnificent and exaggerated view of the many noble royal family's 棺柩//Aurora Valley. It must go to the sights. It is also forbidden to photograph inside. It is solemn and amazing. It is worth a visit.

    The event was actually hosted by Julia Travel. The previous reviews on the Tripadvisor were not very good, but most of the reviews were about the number of coaches and unfriendly tour guides. However, in fact, large-sized tour buses are more comfortable than small ones More ~ ​​a group of 10 a few people are actually good, full guide Spanish + English commentary and will strictly control the time to avoid delays in the trip, with several local tour, most of the European concept of punctuality are in fact poor, Worse than being stereotyped Chinese, tour guides will be a little angry to warn them that no longer have to leave the departure departure, they think of a way back, I think this is the tour guide was European tourists as unfriendly reason , Because I told the girl who was studying in South America has always been a tight guide to listen to explanations also did not arbitrarily disappear to buy coffee in the late collection and so on, tour guide to us very friendly, this is a When the issue of fairness.
