What people are saying about Castile-La Mancha

Our guide, Jorge, was excellent. He never rushed his guests or left anyone behind. Please wear comfortable shoes! You will walk a lot and the cobblestone streets are not forgiving. Jorge’s knowledge and humor during the tour made it a great experience. It is a walking tour through the World Heritage Site that is Toledo. Over 1,500 years of history as it changed hands from one conquering group to another with each one leaving its impression on the city. Absolutely fascinating and a completely enjoyable day!

Excellent work of our guide Jesus. Very attentive, very communicative, always willing to help, very explicit throughout the tour, which allowed us to fully enjoy this wonderful tour to Toledo and learn much more about the history and culture of the first capital of Spain.

El viaje fue fantastico y el guia que tuvimos para Toledo excepcional. Me disculpa no recuerdo el nombre del guia se que es excepcional y muy conocedor de la cultura y costumbres y los monumentos de Toledo. Muy pausado y atento.

Excellent tour. Was impressed with the quality of the wine tasting considering the relatively low price of the tour.
