If you've only got time for a day trip from Madrid, you're probably going to want to visit one of Madrid's satellite cities: either Toledo to the south or a couple of the cities to the west: Segovia, Avila, Valle de los Caidos or El Escorial.
Alternatively, you could always venture as far as Barcelona or Seville, trips only made possible by the high-speed AVE train.

2. Spain Tours from Madrid: Short Tours of Seville and Cordoba
Seville and Madrid are two of Spain's three most popular destinations (Barcelona being the other) - visiting both on a single trip is a very popular choice.
Cordoba is not far from Seville and is home to the Mezquita, the grand mosque that was once the biggest in the world (and has now been converted into the city's cathedral), so adding this to your trip to Seville is a great way to get more out of your time.
All of these trips take you back to Madrid, some by high-speed AVE train, unless otherwise stated.
