The 1 hr double decker bus rides between Toledo and Madrid were comfortable. Our guide did an excellent job describing the history of the many places we visited in Toledo, and led us in an easy pace. Initially I was wondering if it’s better to join another tour with a smaller group, but our guide did a good job in accounting for all of us and went in an easy pace so everyone stayed together and yet able to linger longer here and there to absorb the arts and scenery and not felt rushed. At the end we did a lot of walking which gave us more excuses to enjoy the delicious Spanish food with less guilt, and enjoyed learning an important part of Spanish history and marveled at some of the most amazing architecture and arts.

We had a great day in Toledo with our guide and group. Our guide, Arantxa, was an energetic bundle of joy and information. We learned quite a bit, and laughed a lot also! Loved the detailed tour of the Cathedral, truly a jewel!

It was refreshing to sit back and let someone guide us and show us Toledo. Saw everything we needed to see and had a great guide.

well organized trip with a very knowledgeable and passionate guide (Oscar).

The guide was well-prepared and gave an enjoyable guide through the town.
