Limo companies in Madrid?

Is anybody familiar with Limo/ tour companies in Madrid with which private tours can be set up? My parents and some other family members are going to Madrid and would like to set up day trips to Segovia, Toledo, etc. in this manner.

Thanks!

I've found this site :
http://www.gomadrid.com/tours/top10.html
I cannot recommend them because I have never booked a private car tour in Madrid, just found the site on the net

Thanks Kenderina,

I'll check it out. For some reason it's much easier to find this kind of info for similar companies in Italy. I have been googling it without much success.

Any other info out there?

Thanks

I suspect the reason is on the public transport. It's easier in Madrid and outskirts than in Rome, so private companies doesn't have the same amount of business

Kenderina,

You're probably right and I know that from first hand experience as I did my trip around the north of Spain last year by using public transport. Very comfortable, on time and frequent. But my parents are not up to that . At their age they are looking for extra comfort and I can't blame them.

Sure, I can't blame them either I just mean that's why it most difficult to find a company. I'm spanish and I travel frequently to Madrid and, as I have a disability I only travel in taxis there so I understand them perfectly
I'll try to do some research more for you , I'm sure they will have a nice time there
