IBE Tours did an excellent job transporting and educating us on this tour. We especially loved that we had the tour both in English and Spanish, which was perfect since we had a Spanish-speaking friend who went with us. We also liked that they allowed some time for a bathroom break and snack prior to starting the actual tour. Overall very informative and enjoyable! Keep up the great work, Pilar, Adel, and Ricardo!

Great day trip! Loved the no museums option. The hour-ish walking tour was enough to highlight the main pieces. We then had about 4 hours to walk and visit whatever parts we preferred, which also left plenty of time to have a nice lunch. Highly recommend! Big thank you to Berto and Alba, our two guides.

Nice tour Toledo very pretty too bad the usual tour around the shops catches tourists The guide Maria was friendly and available for information....

This was a fantastic tour. Our guide, Jesus was very knowledgable and affable. He could not have been better!!

Lydia, together with our driver and the lady guide at Toledo were all professional and helpful. Thank you
