Full description
The first stop on your guided tour will be the beautiful museum city of Toledo, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is one of the oldest cities in Europe with buildings blending architectural styles including Arabic, Gothic, Mudéjar, Renaissance, and Baroque. The city itself is like an unbounded museum that hosts some of Spain's key monuments. Toledo is also known as the city of three cultures, as for a long period Christians, Muslims, and Jews lived here together in peace.  Discover the magnificent Cathedral of Toledo accompanied by an official guide. Wonder at the beauty enclosed within its walls. Learn about the history and the arts of this unique cathedral. End the tour of Toledo by discovering one of Toledo's magical hidden gems. Enter a monastery of cloistered nuns, where you will taste typical Toledan marzipan, the jewel of the city's pastries. The nuns will show you the recipe that has been passed down from generation to generation for centuries.  Then you have free time to explore the rest of the city on your own. If you would prefer to just sit back and enjoy a beer or eat on a nice terrace, you will also have time to do so and your guide will recommend some good local or tourist places.

History and tradition in Toledo

The best way to visit Toledo, a city near Madrid. Our guide was very nice and explained all about the city and it's history and didn't make it boring at all. You can really feel the history while you walk arround the city, and the cathedral is really impressive. The food was also amazing. If you are thinking about making a tour near Madrid I really recommend this experience!
