excellent tour. The guide Arantza a love of person and made us know the most important of Toledo in one day. The visit to the Synagogue of Santa Maria La Blanca and the church of Santo Tomé impressed us with his story about the El Greco painting "The Burial of the Count of Orgaz" and he also gave us an incredible tour of the Cathedral, showing us his most valuable jewels and explaining to us in a very clear and entertaining way what we saw. We loved the ride!!!

It was very practical to join this package. In addition to not having to take the train (which was crowded and practically no time available), on this tour we had a guide who went through the main points and explained the whole history of that place. I believe that without the guide I would not have known so much about Toledo.

Very beatiful and interesting trip. We received detailed information about the history, landscape and local cousine. Our guide's english was perfect. The transportation was on time and comfortable. Unfortunately, there was a bit too short time left for the visit of Segovia castle.

Great guide. We were lucky to enjoy a nice weather. Beautiful cathedral. Definitely a must to visit Toledo - full day.

Overall great trip and amazing photo opportunities
