My experience in this regard was wonderful. The guide, Daniel, who walked us through it, made me, I think made all of us, feel like we were building the cathedral ourselves. Thank you very much for sharing your wisdom through the interior of that sublime work that is the cathedral of Toledo. I hope if I have the opportunity, to repeat it again.

It perfectly fulfilled what was the theme of the guided tour. We got to know the Cathedral better and focused on subjects and characteristics that, without the visit, we would not have noticed.
