            While visiting Madrid, tourists will see this Capital of Spain as a very walkable city, however, most tourists don´t have the opportunity to see half of the interesting points that Madrid holds. If a walking tour creates a challenge or you would like to maximize your time, consider a driving tour with a very qualified english speaking driver. We have designed this tour for people who not only prefer to have a personalized service to take them on a panoramic overview, but also for people who may have less time in Madrid and would like to enjoy as much as possible in a condensed period of time without having to deal with public transport.

            It is also a good consideration if you have small children traveling with you or elderly people that find the cobblestone streets to be difficult. This tour allows you the luxury of a car and driver to stop at the wonderful plazas, fountains, quaint streets and unique shops. You have the freedom to get out, take photos and even step inside of a site or shop if you would like and your driver will be waiting for you, no problem. This tour provides a concise introduction and overview of the city and you may even find yourself taking notes on certain places you would like to return to. The English speaking driver will provide his commentary and share his secret places including restaurants.
            We hope you join us. Please let us know in advance if you plan to step inside a major monument so our driver can figure it in to the itinerary.

            Your tour is designed so that we cover a maximum amount of information and places.This tour is conducted with a driver/guide who speaks english, gives explanation but does not go into the sights with you if you choose to do so. As this is a private tour there is flexibility and your guide can take you to requested places but we prefer to have some advance notice if you know ahead of time you want to go somewhere specific.
