Our guide, Jorge, was excellent. He never rushed his guests or left anyone behind. Please wear comfortable shoes! You will walk a lot and the cobblestone streets are not forgiving. Jorge’s knowledge and humor during the tour made it a great experience. It is a walking tour through the World Heritage Site that is Toledo. Over 1,500 years of history as it changed hands from one conquering group to another with each one leaving its impression on the city. Absolutely fascinating and a completely enjoyable day!

To have an excellent experience you should ask for Beni as your tour guide :) He was the best tour guide ever. He was very knowledgeable and super kind.

it's a bit short for the two gorgeous cities, but overall great experience professional and justice perfect for a day trip.

Jesus was a great tour guide. Very amicable, knowledgeable, and attentive.

Very vice touring should have been a bit more time for the sightseeing
