(863 reviews)

This was a great day trip! The bus was clean and comfortable, easy to find as well. Our guide was great! Easy to understand and very knowledgeable. Both cities were so beautiful and it was fun to have free time to shop and look around. We did the early morning tour and so glad we did because it got crowded fast! I would definitely recommend this tour!

It was generally good, but the guide was too serious, not cheerful at all. The information she shared about historical facts was not always accurate. The 2nd guide in Toledo was difficult to understand. It was your basic guided tour. A lot of information was missing.

Lydia (tour guide) was wonderful and great in explaining the different historical points. Everything was on time and same as the schedule posted on website. Good deal to hit up 2 places in 1 day!

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

Loved the destinations however wish we had more time in each place!!!! JC was a great guide & would most certainly join his groups again!!!!
