What to Expect

Located just a short drive from Madrid, Toledo is known as the city of the 3 cultures: Christian, Muslim, and Jewish. People from these rich cultural heritages have lived together here for centuries.

Your expert guide will take you on a full-day panoramic tour of Toledo. Discover Spanish architecture representing the Arab, Gothic, Mudejar, Renaissance, and Baroque styles. Tour the Gothic Cathedral that dates from the 13th century.

Admire El Greco's masterpiece El Entierro del Senor de Orgaz, at the Church of Santo Tome. Visit Santa Maria la Blanca, the oldest synagogue building in Europe that’s still standing. Continue on to the Museum of Victorio Macho at the very center of the Jewish quarter.

Visit the historic Monastery of San Juan de los Reyes, founded by King Ferdinand II of Aragon and Queen Isabella I of Castile, to commemorate their victory at the Battle of Toro over the army of Afonso V of Portugal.

What Other People Are Saying(7 Reviews)

This is a unique City, go see it, but beware the hills!

September 23, 2015
4.0/5 stars

Although we enjoyed our day in this unique city, some people in our tour had great difficulty with the strenuous hill climbing. The previews did not warn of the hills and although they were not a problem for everyone, they were for some. Our guide was very knowledgeable, but was sometimes difficult to hear. We highly recommend this tour for anyone in reasonable shape.

Could have been better

Our tour guide could've been nicer and more attentive to the tourist. From the beginning, she seemed standoffish. When I arrived to the facility to give my voucher, I asked her, not knowing she was the guide, if I was in the right line and with an attitude, she told me to stay where I was. On the tour, it seemed as though she didn't want to answer any questions, like it was a nuisance to her, and that she was going off of a script, so any question off of that script would not be answered. She also didn't wait for the entire group to catch up before she started talking. The bus ride was nice though and the city is beautiful!

Amazing tour to Toledo!

Great guide, excellent tour. I did not get the tour with the meal included and am very glad- ended up getting a cheaper meal in the city and an opportunity to try something new!

Excelent. Beautiful Toledo.

The day was ok, the lunch was pretty awful though. I also missed general information about the city. I would have liked to get to know more about the city.
