Jaime was an excellent tour guide, deeply knowledgeable and organized to optimize learning & understanding
Great tour!
, Aug 2022
Our guide, David, was great- an Art History major who was extremely knowledgeable. It was heavy on the history side but incorporated so well with the paintings we saw. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour. Ages 18-50

Terrific Tour of The Prado with an insider: Silvia
, May 2022
Silvia grew up here-her mom is an art restorer at the Prado. My wife is an art school graduate and her focus for visiting Madrid was this museum. As a gift to her, I booked a private tour with Silvia to show our family of three highlights. Silvia was wonderful! Extremely knowledgeable, provided context-really liked learning from her that at the advent of photography, Spanish painters in order to stay relevant, moved on to large-scale historic paintings. Also the paintings of The Naked Muja and The Clothed Muja- Silvia told us that both painting’s original owner put one in front of the other to be able to adjust which one was displayed for proprietary’s sake. And back stories of shade-throwing among ladies of the court/Queen vs Duchess of Alba (Duchess was the portrait Muja subject.) So many other examples, too many to list here. Silvia was sweet, never didactic, made it interesting even to our non-art-inclined daughter; a perfect guide. My wife especially liked learning about Spanish artist Sorolla, almost an early Impressionist, who is Silvia’s favorite.

Excellent Tour, Excellent Guide!

Pedro was incredibly knowledgeable and his love of and enthusiasm for art and ‘the cathedral’ came through n every word and gesture. He shared history of the art we viewed that we’d have gotten no other way.

It is so much more interesting and edifying touring an art museum with a knowledge guide. Jaime made our tour so enjoyable.
Riveting tour of the Prado!
, Nov 2021
My family and I enjoyed this tour of the Prado so much! David was an exceptional guide, able to weave together Spanish history and art in a way that made the experience both entertaining and educational alike for the adults as well as the kids in our family; I feel like we gained a much richer understanding of both. We were especially impressed by the time and care he took to show us specific works from different angles to further appreciate the technique that went into them. The three hours flew by!

Fabulous Tour with Jaime
, Oct 2021
I can't recommend this excursion too highly. Jaime is a delightful and passionate guide to the masterpieces of the Prado. The museum is overwhelming so he takes you to important pieces by the major artists and explains each in detail. Rather than emerging from the museum dazed and confused, we left with a clarity about the history of Spanish art.

Wonderful trip to Prado
, Jun 2021
A wonderful 3 hour tour of the Prado with Jaime can be highly recommended. The hotel pickup was right on time. This was our first visit to the museum and we only saw the highlights and Jaime provided us with interesting stories about the paintings. I think this is the best to really get the most out of a first time in museum that is worth visiting many times.

Thank you Fleur, It was a pleasure to guide informed people who love art like you. I hope you have time on your trip to the south of Spain. Best regards, Jaime
Best Art Experience with Jamie!
, Feb 2020
The guide Jamie from Ventana a la Cultura has been really an awesome person & so knowledgable. He was a self-responsible person to do the best justice for the job taken up. Knowing that we are laymen, he had an opportunity to skip explaining the intricate details & we would not even know nor ask him any further questions but he never did so & described every other intricate detail. He made our experience at Prado not just the best but left a wonderful feel from within us.

El Prado Highlights
, Jan 2020
I booked this tour the night before our visit. We were a group of 7. Our guide Angel met us at our hotel and we all walked to the museum. The visit was excellent. Angel is a natural teacher and his passion and love of art and history were evident. We got to see many major works of art and others not so famous. Angel's descriptions of the paintings were both enlightening and entertaining. I would book another tour with Angel anytime.

Hello Milla, I´m glad you enjoyed with Angel, he is a great guide with profound knowledge. I hope you had a wonderful trip! Jaime
Prado Museum - Excellent Guide - Ventana a la Cultura
, Nov 2019
Our Guide Jamie from VC was exceptional. We only had a short period and we walked out of the Prado blown away. There is so much in the Prado seeing it all is hard enough let alone understanding the significance. After Jamie's tour though we had a comprehensive understanding of evolution of oil, the mixed up but incredible minds of the artists, the context of their painting and some paintings that will stick in my mind forever. Fantastic. Thoroughly recommend it.
