It is a pleasant way to spend half of your day to. Toledo is a picturesque city with many things to see. The tour was bilingual, both spanish and english, which makes it hard to gain a lot of information, due to the fact that the guide has to translate and therefore say things twice. We had only 20 minutes of free time. I would recommend it only if you have a tight schedule, but if you have the luxury of time, it would be better to book a whole day tour to toledo

Great option for those who don’t want or simply can’t spend a whole day in Toledo. Our guide was so nice and told us about the history and facts in such a wonderful way. We definitely got a perfect glimpse of Toledo and what it has to offer. The buses were comfortable and everything went according to schedule.

Alhambra is a massive complex and it was incredible to navigate it with a guide. Although we didn’t get to Nasrid palace, we saw everything else and learned so much. I would definitely recommend this tour! You will have to walk up the hill so make sure your legs are well rested!
