What people are saying about Toledo

Overall it had a very good experience. Toledo is a beautiful old city with an interesting history. Its an 1hr drive from Madrid. We first stopped at an overviewing point to take pictures of the whole city. The 5hr trip is really short, you only have approx. 1h to enjoy Toledo for yourself but if you‘re with kids it‘s enough, if you‘re travelling without kids I would def recommend the 8hr trip. Our tour guide were also very friendly.

A comfortable ride. Perfect schedule. We arrived around 10. The punctual guide. He gave us a complete tour with extensive explanations. And we had time to go zip-lining over the gorge and come back to eat before leaving at 4:30 p.m.

Our guide Fernando was great. Very knowledgeable and helped make it good for the teenagers.

It has been a very enjoyable tour, and the guide answered all our doubts
