Day trip was great! Loved the organisation and all the stops we had on our way through Toledo. Our guide Javier was awesome, loved the interaction and information we learned as well as tips we got for our way. Cathedral was great experience. Only thing that had a slight minus was a bus to Toledo, it made squeaky sound (old bus), maybe maintanance or invest in another bus! All in all was perfect and good value for money, would recommend to everyone! ☺️
