El Escorial is a must see place. The arrangements were very good but the guide was in a mighty rush and was walking well ahead of the group, mostly talking to herself. A little more patience on her part would have left a much better impression on all in the group.
The tour was in Spanish and English. First part of the day Escorial, one hour break and Tolido in the afternoon. I didn't like the shopping stop (isolated store with very expencive items) at the end of the day for about 1 hour, which was not mentioned anywhere.
Very interesting place, it was nice to see it. The tour in Escorial was a bit hurried: interiors are so wonderful it would have been nice to see and experience them in a low speed pace. Our guide was friendly and nice and spoke good English.
The tour was very well organised both morning at escorial and valley and afternoon at Toledo. Both tour guide were experienced. Only the lunch included was a bit too turistic but good quality.
The tour in Toledo was very short-1 hour walking tour and one hour into jewelry factory in Toledo. I did not pay money for commercial tour to jewelry store.
