Madrid Super Saver: El Escorial Monastery and Toledo Day Trip from Madrid

Madrid, Spain

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

It was broken down into two separate tours – El Escorial Monastery and Valley of the Fallen in the morning, then Toledo in the afternoon – which was NOT what I expected. We met at the tour office, but It was hard to know which tour was departing as other tour groups were waiting as well, and there was no clear signage.

After the bus picked us up we then realized we were part of a big tour group ( 50+ pax for sure).

Between the two tours, there’s a 2 hr lunch break (after gotten dropped back at the tour operator). Total waste of time. I’d rather spend that time travelling / eat on the road.

At the end of the Toledo trip, there was a metal shop visit which we were given 20 minutes to “shop”, while not having a single minute at Toledo on our own. What an awful arrangement. The shop was yet another waste of time.

In short, the sights were lovely but due to the poor arrangements, we didn’t get to enjoy any of it.

My Review

Our guide (Philipthiano…not sure about spelling) was fantastic. Super knowledgeable and attentive. The breakfast and lunch were amazing! Too bad it was rainy and foggy when we went to Monsterrat.

Will definitively recommend to anyone, food/wine lovers or not.
