It was very nice experience. You are able to explore several places. Only concern, the meeting point should be the church closest to the bridge, and will make it easier to find it. We have to ask several times to find it. But besides that, it was worthy the price.

It was a great day and well worth it. Our guide Christina was amazing very knowledgeable and knew the city well. Toledo is a must see. We had enough free time to walk around the city and take in the wonderful sites.

Great way to see a variety of the historical churches /mosques / synagogues in the city. I wish the bracelet could be picked up at any of the stops but overall a great experience

Very complete and well organized visit. The guide Arantxa was very friendly, always available and attentive and showed a deep knowledge of the city visited. I recommend!

Bellissima esperienza! Aranxa preparatissima e gentile, grazie.
