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.

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.

Very prepared, helpful and pleasant guide. He made the tour of the 3 monuments very captivating
