Meeting point

Oso y Madroño

On arrival

Meeting Point: Our meeting will be at Puerta del Sol, specifically next to the famous statue of the Bear and the Strawberry Tree. This emblematic symbol of Madrid is easily recognizable and visible throughout the square. LOOK THE YELLOW UMBRELLA

Important Caution: Upon arriving at the plaza, be wary of individuals who may claim to be from our company, stating they are the ones with the yellow umbrella. However, their umbrellas are a mix of yellow and orange, which is not our company’s color. We solely use bright YELLOW umbrellas, with no mix of colors. This distinction is crucial as those not representing our company do not adhere to Trip Tours Madrid's high standards of quality and service.

After receiving numerous reports of travelers being misled by these individuals, we strongly recommend you to avoid any interaction with them and look for the true sign of quality and safety: a solid, bright YELLOW umbrella.

Identifying Our Group: To find us, simply look for the Trip Tours Madrid guide holding a bright, solid YELLOW umbrella. Our guides will hold it high for easy identification from a distance. Remember, our yellow umbrella is our distinctive mark and your guarantee of receiving the high-quality service that Trip Tours Madrid promises.

We recommend arriving 10 minutes early to ensure a smooth start to your journey through time with us.
