Real Madrid - Sevilla FC
1 October 2013
We went, as a family to see Real Madrid v Seville, and have a short city break in Madrid. The whole package was excellent, we were able to amend it to suite our wants. We stayed for 3 nights, changed our seats in the stadium, flight times and we were able to choose a hotel in Madrid’s old town. When we needed to speak to the representatives from FootballBreak they were friendly and very helpful. The match tickets were waiting for us when we checked into our hotel, and even though the match kicked off late (10pm local time) it was a great spectacle (7 - 3 to Madrid).
Tip: As we chose a hotel in the centre of the old town of Madrid and used taxis to and from the stadium. Whilst it was busy after the game, there were plenty of taxis (we only had to wait a couple of minutes) and they are not an unreasonable price. We also used the local taxis to and from the airport, again with no issues and very speedy. Madrid is a beautiful city and, for a capital city, the cost of eating and drinking out isn’t unreasonable.

Real Madrid - Juventus
1 October 2013
Me and my friend went to see Real Madrid vs Juventus. The total package was fine and I recieved all the information that I though was neccesary. Only one thing which was a problem was that I got given a double bed room when I did book a 2 single beds. Luckily the hotel was able to switch rooms. The atmosphere was amazing, the best stadium I have ever been too. Madrid is a very beautiful city with very good food.
Tip: Buy a metro pass! It cost me 18 euro\'s for 3 days. Go to the airport T1, T2, T3 metro station and purchase it. Also visit an information centre to pick up a street map. Visit the Plaza Mayor, the paella their was fantastic! I recommend staying for 2 nights just to experience most of Madrid.
Real Madrid - Levante
1 April 2013
A great package, all but the transfer from the airport sorted, tickets waiting at hotel on check in for the match, seats were 5 rows from the front, my 11 year old lad thought he was in heaven seeing Ronaldo score and Real win 5-1.
Real Madrid - Rayo Vallecano
1 February 2013
We arranged this trip as a surprise for my Dad\'s 60th as he had always wanted to go to Madrid. The overall service received from football break was excellent and they organised everything from start to finish. It really was the most hassle free booking of a holiday I have known. We requested seats on the side of the Bernebeu, and although this was not guaranteed, football break managed to sort this out for us. The atmosphere was pretty decent overall and Madrid were 2 up after 15 minutes. We were settle a cricket score but then the ref sent Sergio Ramos off after 20 minutes and that seriously hampered Madrid\'s attacking threat. That said, it was still a competitive fixture and gave Vallecano half a chance. The refereeing display ensured a hostile response from the Madridistas but this added to the experience! Madrid was a beautiful city and some of the architecture was a sight to behold. The representatives of Football Break made sure the weekend was a great experience and we all really enjoyed the trip.
Tip: Make sure you go on the ground tour as the Bernebeu really is a footballing cathedral. Walking round the stadium on a non-match day was great and I would really recommend it to anyone.
