We loved that trip, the guide was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about History, I liked it outside at our own pace. The only thing was that he insisted that we not forget the truck to wait for it at the end, I did not hear him say that it would be another return trip, fortunately we were there before the time and we were able to look for why the truck did not arrive, I think that was necessary precision, but overall wonderful. It is a must-see walk.

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

Very useful. The guide Irena was excellent and very friendly: she knows everything, highlights the important points and speaks several languages.

Everything very good and with good explanations. María José is an excellent guide. It is very worth it if you want to see three cities in one day

Great tour for those who want to know the 3 cities in one day.
