Tour guide Rafa was amazing and very knowledgeable. This is a must do tour. Tour was scheduled for 6 hours but lasted 8 hours. I did not mind however it should have been announced at beginning in case others had plans same day after tour.

Great tour! Exceeded expectations. The caves under the streets of Toledo were the highlight, but the entire tour & tour guide were excellent & provided a terrific historical background of the city & review of important landmarks.

The city is really very beautiful!!! It is worth paying the extra fee to enter the cathedral and the Synagogue is also worth seeing. Certainly the best time to visit it is spring.

Diego was a friendly knowledgeable and professional guide. Toledo was an amazing place to visit

The tour was very informative and Santiago was a great and friendly tour guide.
