What people are saying about Toledo

The entire tour was amazing! Jesus, our tour guide, did a remarkable job showing us the sites with excitement and passion, not to mention his English was perfect. I honestly wish that we had two days in Toledo because it’s that interesting. Know before you go: it’s best to train in, the parking situation is horrible. The wristbands they provide you give you all-day repeat access. The courtyard outside the cathedral is where you’ll meet the guide, just look for a white umbrella. Also, if you did drive in, go to Mirador. It’s the perfect picturesque location to see all of Toledo.

We had a great tour with Maria as our tour guide. The bus was comfortable. We were able to leave our car seat on the bus. Toledo is an amazing city and we enjoyed learning about the architecture and old churches and buildings.

I highly recommend Cristina. She was lovely, easy to be with, and highly entertaining with her deep knowledge of history. It makes all the difference to learn from an experienced guide. Worth every penny.

Nos encanto el tour con Javi, se hizo muy ameno, muy interesante y muy majo :)

Muy bueno todo. Personal excelente y amable. Gracias
