Founded in 1981, our company is Spain’s real specialist in road passenger transportation. Being a family owned business, with the second generation taking care of the management, the company has experienced a great growth in the last 30 years, reaching a privately owned fleet of 55 vehicles, and managing a total fleet of more than 300 vehicles with our partner network that allows us to provide services all around Spain.
Our headquarters are conveniently located in Madrid, Spain’s wonderful Capital, from which our coaches can easily reach any point of the Iberian Peninsula, due the Spanish radial motorway system. Besides a recently built new office building, we have our own garage facilities at the same location, allowing us to make the most of our strict maintenance programs, with expert mechanics and operators.
Apart from our local operations in Madrid and Spain, Car Tour provides coaches, minibuses, vans and cars to the biggest tour operators from around the world. We are proud to carry passengers from the 5 continents and show them not only the treasures of Spain, but also the rest of Europe, like for example in our European tours for Latin American passengers.
We invite you to experience the top quality passenger transportation service in Spain, from the time you contact us till the time your passengers get off our vehicles.
