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!

This tour was excellent! Belen and Kahn were very kind and knowledgeable! The only regret is not having sufficient time to shop since we were visiting 2 cities in one day but Toledo and Segovia are magical cities!

it's a bit short for the two gorgeous cities, but overall great experience professional and justice perfect for a day trip.

Worth the trip! Amazing views! And guide ‘Khan’ was really funny and fun to have lead us!

Very vice touring should have been a bit more time for the sightseeing
