Explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Toledo to discover the historic meeting of traditions and faiths. For centuries, the city has been a universal model of religious cohabitation and tolerance.

De gids was erg goed. We boekten een tour met Nederlandstalige gids en kregen een Duitstalige gids. Gloria was heel belezen en vertelde belangrijke info. We hadden een erg dure excursie genomen omdat in het aanbod Nederlands werd aangeboden. Te duur voor een anderstalige tour.
