We visited Toledo, the long-time capital of Spain, on a perfect day. We took the train station from Madrid from the Atoche Station at 9:20 and our guide met us at the train station at 9:53. Buy your tickets on line and even though you may not know your return time, you can always exchange your ticket for an earlier (but not later) departure. The cathedral is stunningly beautiful with unique art and history. The Jewish section of town is interesting as well, with but two remaining synagogues, one with Moorish architecture, the other with a comprehensive history of Judaism in general and in Spain specifically. Our guide took us into the basement of a Jewish home with a hidden Mikvah which we suspect was used by Marranos. We ended with El Greco's "Burial of the Count of Orgaz", surely his greatest painting. The guide also gave us a great recommendation for lunch, and after wandering for another couple hours we returned to Madrid at 5:30. Our best day in Spain.

Great guide!

Our guide was very good. He was personable & informative. His English was clear & his volume adequate to hear. He also helped us get back on the train to retrieve sunglasses & contacted our taxi driver to retrieve a cell phone. SUPERIOR care of his group. Our apologies for the necessity.

It is the best guide we have ever met

Good day! My husband and I came from Mexico. We had the opportunity to take the tour with Enrique Galdeano! It has been the best tour we have taken. We feel very welcome in Toledo for the friendly welcome you gave us. He is a broad connoisseur of history. He is very helpful, cheerful and conveys his passion for his work. He made us have a very beautiful and unforgettable experience of Toledo. Widely recommended.
