Madrid in a Day from Bareclona
, Jan 2020
A full day on the go but one that you will enjoy if you don't have more time to visit Madrid. If you have time stay the night and return the evening train the next day. Two days is surely enough to see all of Madrid.

Madrid from Barcelona by High Speed Train
, Jul 2019
This was our most expensive and disappointed trip while in Barcelona. We had to contact our tour operator several times for our train tickets a day before the trip. It cost us approximately 30 euros for round trip taxi fare from hotel to train station. Also, the train does not offer any free snacks or refreshments for the price and duration of the trip. Furthermore, it was plenty of confusion after we arrived at the train station in Madrid to board a Hop-On Hop-Off bus. Madrid City Tours associate said our tour operator did not Email us a voucher with the train tickets to board their bus. The bus drivers we allowing passengers on the bus while seats weren’t available. The buses were crowded and the experience was awful. Finally, I wouldn’t recommend this trip for anyone in Barcelona because of the trip being overpriced with negative experiences.
