Excursions and Travel

From Madrid, Spain is your oyster. From here we plan routes not just in the rich heartland of Castilla which includes some of the most stunning countryside, as well holding many secrets and traditions of old Spain´s rich history; but also we can chauffeur you across Spain so you can enjoy a private bespoke holiday experience without parallel. As well as winding our way through some of the best scenery in southern Europe you will also experience Spain at its best. Sure in the knowledge that your English-Speaking driver and guide will be there all the way to ensure that every step is planned and executed for the perfect itinerary.

We organise all pre-purchased entrance tickets to museums, monasteries and castles as well as other sites avoid on the day queuing, as well as providing local and official English-Speaking guides that bring every destination to life.

Our popular day trip excursions from Madrid include:

  • Toledo and Consuegra- situated around 45 minutes to the south of Madrid in the province of Castilla La Mancha, Toledo was founded by the Romans and was an important centre of trade. It became most prominent as the capital of Visigoth Spain who usurped the Romans in the fifth century and ruled until their defeat at the hands of the Moorish invaders in the eighth century before its "reconquest" by the Christians in the 11th century. It remained the pre-eminent city in Spain until the reign of Carlos I who made it the capital of his imperial crown of the Holy Roman Empire whose double headed eagle is still its symbol. The many churches, synagogues as well as the great cathedral ( and primacy of Spain) can be fully explained with a local guide. After we head to Consuegra with its famous windmills ( made famous by Don Quixote) and castle befor returning to Madrid.
