Full description
Begin your visit to Toledo with a guided walking tour of the old city. Enter the monumental Primate Cathedral, a magnificent example of Gothic style, before continuing on through the narrow streets of the old Jewish quarter to the Church of St. Tomé, where you’ll see El Greco’s The Burial of Count Orgaz. Next stop will be the old Synagogue of Santa Maria la Blanca and then the Mosque of Cristo de la Luz. These houses of worship stand as symbols of Toledo being a City of 3 Cultures for centuries.

Accessing tour was easy but the guide was not welcoming, not friendly.

Accessing tour was easy but the guide was not welcoming, not friendly. The tour also made unnecessary transitions for full day vs half day groups. The bus initially had both groups on the bus and at half way point they separated the groups in which the full day group wasted time walking back to the bus and out again for the switch. The full day group could have spent that time to visit souvenir shops and/or dine because we didn’t have time to souvenir shop.
