    About the ride

    If you are looking for a way to see all of Madrid’s most popular sites but only have a little time, then the ‘Madrid Highlights tour’ is the one for you. Although it is possible to walk or use public transportation to explore this beautiful city, it is quicker and more convenient to take a private car. This way you can maximise your time and see more of Madrid. On the morning of your tour, your Welcome driver will pick you up from your chosen accommodation, and take you on your fully personalized journey through the most popular sites of Madrid. Every aspect of your tour is customizable, and points of interest can be added or taken away, however, the following itinerary is one we suggest.

    You will start your tour in the oldest neighbourhood in Mardis, Calle Gran Via, where you will have the chance to take a relaxing walk through the stunning Botanical Gardens of Parque del Oeste. At this stop you can also visit the magical Temple of Debob, and soak up all the Spanish history. From the Botanical Gardens you will also have the chance to see the majestic Royal Palace of Madrid, an architectural marvel from 1755. If you have the time, the historical Atocha railway station, the Triumphal Arch and some of the city’s most stunning fountains are very close to this stop.

    Your driver will then take you through the vibrant square of Puerta del Sol, and down to Madrid’s spiritual centre, Playa Mayor. This is the point at which we suggest you make a stop for lunch at one of the many tapas restaurants, or ask your driver for a personal recommendation. After your delicious Spanish meal, you will then head to Madrid’s renowned museum district to visit one of the most culturally significant museums in the city. In this area you will find many museums, however, we recommend choosing between the Prado Museum and the Ermita de San Antonio de la Florida.

    After your historical pitstop, you will drive down the picturesque Paseo de la Castellan towards Salamanca, Madrid’s most exclusive neighbourhood. This vibrant quarter is full of designer boutiques, fine dining restaurants, lovely little tapas bars and even the world-famous Plaza de Toros. There are so many unique photo opportunities in Salamanca, but the best has to be outside Las Ventas, the biggest bullring in the world. After you have shopped, taken some once in a lifetime photos and enjoyed the historical buildings, you can return to your Welcome car and your driver will drop you back off at your accommodation.

    Frequently asked questions

    Will there be an official tour guide?

    An official tour guide is not included because the overall experience is centered around the driver and the local’s perspective. Although the drivers are very knowledgeable regarding the points of visit, at no point can they be compared with a licensed tour guide who can give more in depth information regarding historic facts and information. If you would like to include an official tour guide in the experience please let us know via email after the booking is completed.

    Do I need to be in a good physical shape?

    The drivers are trained to adapt the experience depending on the type of participants. Whether you have kids or elders participating, the drivers know exactly how to handle special requests and provide an enjoyable experience accordingly.

    Can I customize the tour based on my needs?

    Of course, that is one of the main benefits of having a Welcome experience. You can customize every last bit of the experience, from points of visit to time spent per landmark to adding in an extra food stop.

    What happens after I book?

    Once you complete your booking you will receive an email with more details about the Madrid Highlights tour, your Welcome driver, and any more information you need to know regarding this experience. Feel free to reach out to our customer service team at [email protected] for any specific questions regarding the experience.

    Can i book my pickup from anywhere?

    Hey there! Just a quick note: our transfer pickups are set within the city (usually from a Hotel or residential address) to make your journey smoother. But no sweat! If you're arriving at an airport or port, you can book a transfer to the city center and share your transfer number with our support team so that we can combine the two, and we'll ensure a seamless transition to your destination so that you can start a great sightseeing ride. Let's make your travel experience a breeze!

    Useful tips


    Bring cash in the form of local currency (Euros), as many of the local vendors don’t accept card payments.

    Dress Code

    Please wear comfortable clothes and shoes and be equipped with wet weather gear if rain is expected. In addition, please note that religious sites require modest attire- knees and shoulders must be covered.


    In the summer months be sure to wear sunscreen, sunglasses, and perhaps a hat, to shield yourself from the sun. We also recommend staying hydrated throughout the tour with the water provided.


    Please let us know if anyone in your group has special needs, or specific accessibility requirements, and we will be sure to accommodate your needs and tailor the tour accordingly.


    We strongly recommend booking your entrance tickets in advance. You can ask your Welcome driver about prices, times and general information on tickets.
