Guided tour of La Primada Cathedral, Toledo. The guide, named Raquel, was amazing. It showed the magnificent details of the Cathedral, along with historical information. I loved it, at the end of the visit I was speechless before so much beauty.

Very clear and enjoyable the explanations of the guide Enrique. His treatment of tourists is excellent. Very punctual in all sections of the tour

I felt the tour offered good information on the sites, but also about the city, it's history and it's evolution.

Visiting Toledo Cathedral with such a perfect guide was an unforgettable experience!
