Took the full day tour. Nice ride to our destination and When we arrived near the city, we were taken to a beautiful Overlook where we could get a picturesque view of the city from above. There was a stop at a sword factory with a brief tour. Probably the one good thing about that stop is that there were public restrooms that were free to use, probably the main reason for the stop. We were guided through the city for a bit with our tour guide giving us some information. It was OK. It was done in both Spanish and English and sometimes the guide was hard to hear. but the best part was just walking around on our own and visiting the beautiful sites.

Love this tour! its very easy to get to the meeting point. when we reach toleda we are given time to take picture of the city, before resume with the tour. Olga is our lovely tour guide, she is really details in her explanation, and she is fun! The guided tour took a bit more than 1 hour, i guess if anyone wants to spend more time with shopping and sight seeing u can take whole day tour for it. I myself love that i get to experience the whole city in such a short time. Absolutely worth the money.

Great way to see Toledo. I did the half day option and that was the perfect amount of time. Our guide, Mar was great and had an option for English and Spanish speakers. The bus was air conditioned and took about an hour each way. We pulled over for photos in Toledo, did a guided walking tour, and then had about an hour of free time

It was a very nice activity and well organized. Olga was very kind and provided to us a lot of information about Toledo.

A wonderful day in Toledo! Our guide, Alejandro, was a hero! Would definitely recommend. Great value for money!
