Madrid Airport to City

Tour Description

Welcome to Madrid, the Capital of Spain!  A whole adventure awaits you.  Get off to the right start with our Madrid Airport to city private transfer from our professional driver and car to take you from the airport to the city but not without a fun and informative panoramic tour to give you an overview and make you feel more at home.  What does our  panoramic tour consist of? It is an abbreviated version of our 4 hour driving tour as it is shorter and designed to provide just the basics to get you started.  

While Madrid is a very walkable city and you can get most everywhere by metro, coming in with your luggage is a different story.  We designed this panoramic tour to not only be convenient after a long flight, but to touch on the highlights so you feel comfortable later when navigating the city.  Your guide will be informing you what you are seeing, popular plazas and if there is an important monument, he will point that out.  You may even be able to pop out for a photo.  What a great way to get started. We will cover 4 main areas of Madrid within a 2 hour drive including the airport pickup.   Consider this Madrid Airport to city transfer for a great introduction to begin your stay with a local and knowledgeable driver who will make you feel at home.   We will cover the highlights including Paseo del Prado and the Buen Retiro Park and up Castellana to see some of the former Palaces as well as Calle Serrano (the Fifth AVE of Madrid) and up Gran Via Street where the turn of the century architecture will delight you, down to see views of the Majestic Royal Palace.
