What people are saying about Community of Madrid

Very easy to order this taxi for my friends and I to be collected from the airport. Our flight was delayed by about an hour, but our friendly driver was there waiting for us. 20 min or so journey into Madrid to our hotel, done efficiently and in good time, even though lots of traffic. Wilson, our driver also pointed out various sites along the way. Very pleased with the service, booked for our return flight.

Toledo was a beautiful city. The guided bus trip made it very easy. The walking tour was supposed to be in English but clearly it was not her first language. Most of us had trouble understanding most of what she said. But she was very kind and it was nice just walking around with her pointing the main things to see.

The tapas and drink combinations were well matched. A most enjoyable experience. Raul was an excellent and fun guide.

Marina was excellent! Highly informative and knowledgeable. Tapas were tasty and excellent. Highly recommend!

Very informative guide Jose… over and above expectations. Thanks
