Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour
Traveling by train between the cities is really fast, so you get more time to spend sightseeing. I’d recommend looking at Toledo’s monuments on the hop-on hop-off tour, and then visiting the most interesting ones with your Toledo card. Don’t miss the Cathedral of Toledo – it’s my favorite!
What You Can Expect
Once the formal capital of Spain, Toledo is now considered as the country’s spiritual capital with countless religious monuments and landmarks. Use your Toledo Card to sightsee independently, enjoying a range of benefits as detailed below.
- Church of Santo Tomé
- Primate Cathedral of Saint Mary of Toledo (pass includes skip-the-line access)
- Santa Maria la Blanca Synagogue
- San Juan de los Reyes Monastery
See top city sights such as Cambrón Gate and Puerta del Sol on a city tour by coach and learn about the city’s history from an onboard guide. The 1.5-hour tour includes a visit to Primate Cathedral of Saint Mary of Toledo and its museums – home to a collection of artistic masterpieces that date back nearly 700 years. Learn about the church’s incredible 13th-century history while exploring, and hear how the church is often said to be the epitome of Spanish Gothic architecture.

The description of this tour is a bit misleading. Yes, we exchanged our vouchers at an office at the train station (a bit hard to find, so get there early!). The train was nice and it was a quick trip. We then had to get on a tour bus and meet a guide. The tour bus showed some great views of the city and then went up into the city center where we got off and the tour guide led us to the cathedral. He then guided us through the cathedral which was interesting but it was in both English and Spanish so it could be a little hard to follow. After that, we were free to see the city on our own. There was no three course lunch, though and we were ready to go back about an hour before our train was scheduled to leave. I think this could be done better on one's own.
I found the whole experience exhausting. The guide had to much to do in a limited time and this lead to a bad day. Toledo is a worthwhile experience but take a more leisurely experience.
