Excellent tours with great guides. These are really two half-day tours to sites in different directions from Madrid. So, first tour ends in Madrid with a quick hour (or less) for lunch and then the next tour leaves. This makes for a VERY strenuous and long day. Even though there is an escalator most of the way from the drop off point to upper Old Town Toledo, there is still a lot of hill left as well as stairs within the buildings visited. In addition, the Aranjuez Palace is multi-story. Even though I sat out and enjoyed a bench in the palace gardens after interior tour, I still had a wonderful time and would recommend the tour (but maybe split into two days).
A wonderful experience, our guide was very knowledgeable, kind, and to the point. Both places are very pretty. In my opinion Aranjuez was more impressive than el Palacio Real in Madrid.
Our tour guides were both excellent. Although strict with time, they were so very knowledgeable and well-spoken. Both their Spanish and English were impeccable. Their passion was infectious and made the many sights we saw come to life. After the previous day's nightmare, I was relieved to have both excellent experiences. There were four of us in the group and we all noted how wonderful both tours were that day. We owe that to our guides.
The guide we had, Ana, was extremely knowledgeable and pleasant. It was worth the price we paid. The bus we rode in was very comfortable. I will use Viator again on my next trip.
Very good excursions for just one day. The guide was very good (but I don't know her name).
It's been a good choice!
The guides were both every informative and friendly. They showed us a lot of the interesting sites and told us the important information. It would be better if it was a combined tour, as the trip back to Madrid was a bit unnecessary. I also wouldn't recommend the Aranjuez tour, only because the site itself is unorganised and inaccurate in terms of their flow of rooms, time periods and representation of rooms.
The tour to Toledo was nice but a little too hard for my 87 years and my heart condition and I was not in shape to make the Aranjuez one the same day, so I asked Julia Travel to give me anothar date and they said it was not possible but they could cancel the Aranjuez part and Viator would reimbourse me, so I surrender my tickets to them. Ever since I have been asking you for such reimboursement on my credit card to no avail. So I trust this time you will acknowledge and comply.Thanks
The tour to Aranjuez is great, both the programm and the guid are very good. But tour to Toledo can be better, there are significant places in Toledo which do not included in the tour.
Great idea for a double tour,two beautiful towns with loads of history and interesting facts-well worth the money. But I was disappointed that we visited a boat museum in Aranjuez instead of the advertised Casino. But a very good double tour nonetheless. Recommended.
Great day trips outside of Madrid. It's 2 separate trip and not 1 combined. So the first trip takes you back to the city where you can get lunch and then hop on the bus again for the second segment. Would have been much nicer if it was the all in one with lunch included. Other than that it was a very good 2 trips.
Toledo was very interesting though but I think it would be great if they would a lot some time to purchase souvenirs in the old town of Toledo as well. The gardens in Aranjuez were beautiful. Our tour guide did not however appear knowledgeable enough or perhaps was not articulate enough to give more facts and interesting information about the Palace and its inhabitants in English. I felt I got more info from reading the placards provided by the palace at each point.
I don't like that you separate this tour.One hour in between - do not know what to do
It was dissapointing. The employees at the office were rude and not helpful at all. Both hald dy tours were very late and caused inconvenience. The touts themselves were just ok...very rushed at times and boring at others. I would not do another tour nor would I recommend them.
One piece of advice: take a bus from Madrid and go there by your own means, the Toledo tour was too short, couldn't visit what we wanted and couldn't take pictures of what we visited. It was very upsetting!! Then the Aranjuez Royal Palace is TOTALLY NOT WORTH IT! After visiting Toledo, you go back to Madrid only to take another bus to go to the palace and spend the day on the road to see... nothing that's worth it!
