What people are saying about Castile-La Mancha

Toledo is an absolute, we did it as a day trip tour from Madrid because the cost was so reasonable and it really simplified the transportation logistics. Our tour guide was personable, but the dual language translation made it long and awkward. We did most of the day on our own, but that was great. We saw and experienced Toledo efficiently and inexpensively - mission accomplished.

Well balanced. The guide tour was great ( David), the activities well planned, and enough free time to discover the city. Highly recommend!! 5 STARS ⭐️

It was very nice trip but the leader her English language was not fluent

Our guide was amazing. So knowledgeable. Excellent tour! Thank you.

Other than one glitch on the meeting point great experience
