What people are saying about Toledo Cathedral

The tour was amazing. Natalia picked us up at the train station with a big taxi as we were 5. Then she took us to admire the old city from afar, spectacular view! Then the taxi dropped us off in front of the monastery and we practically crossed the old city on foot. We stopped at the Church with a wonderful painting by El Greco. We pass through the Jewish quarter, the Cathedral and end up in the commercial square. She was very attentive and her explanations very good. Despite being Spanish, his Portuguese was amazing!!

The guide was very good. We booked a tour with a Dutch speaking guide and got a German speaking guide. Gloria was very well read and told important info. We had taken a very expensive excursion because Dutch was offered in the offer. Too expensive for a foreign language tour.

All very well coordinated and organized. The guides are very friendly and attentive. A great tour Havana the driver was a great company for more than 12 hours that the tour lasted; he is a great person

Very personable and knowledgeable guide, who grew up in and still lives there.
