Depart Madrid for the medieval city of Toledo, picturesquely located on the banks of the River Tagus. The half-day tour provides a full introduction to the historic city, wandering winding streets to monuments that reveal its fascinating past.

Sol, the tour guide was in my opinion quite disorganized and was unable to sustain the attention and interests of the group. With limited time, she could have managed the tour better. At times we would be walking for long periods of time in extreme cold weather. We had to switch buses. She was knowledgeable but lacked people skills. I would prefer someone far pleasant and interesting. We were not able to visit the inside of churches except maybe for one so my goal to compare churches was not fulfilled.

Was worth it!

Online registration with confirmation and voucher worked perfectly. At the meeting point, no bus with number 74 could be found 20 minutes before departure, as announced. No other sign or sign on the blocked actual bus. So wandered around soaked in sweat ... Then back again and asked all the buses. Ultimately found The tour guide did an excellent job. Toledo and the timing were perfect. The half-day tour was just right for us.
