The guide for El Escorial Monastery, Nuria, was very knowledgeable about the place, I would say the same for Ana at Toledo. Both had very good English . Both places were wonderful, a must to visit while in Madrid. I wish they could give you a little more time at la Cruz de los caidos and Toledo. The lunch was not so good though. The office organization at the beginning of the tour is a little bit chaotic and crowded. Be aware of that.
Very informative and friendly guides on both parts of the tour. You get to see a lot in one day.
It was everything it promised. We purchased the lunch, and we were pleasantly surprised! Yum!
Great day with just the right amount of time. Both guides were very good, especially Nuria.
The tour guides were excellent. Pacing of tour and information presented was to the point, and extremely interesting. Both guides were approachable for questions.
Impressed by the monuments both at El Escorial and Valley of the Fallen. Magnificent views from the Valley of the Fallen Monument. interesting tour of Toledo, a medieval city with a lot of walking on cobbled streets. Good guides.
Good value ! but if want to spend more time in Toledo take a separate tour
Very well organized and good coverage of subject matter. However, the guide could be more friendly. Although she knew her subject, she has a "I do not care for you" attitude. When she collected us from the tour office, she just announced the tour quickly and quickly turned around and went out and left a number of us wondering if it is the tour for us.
I am usually wary of tour companies that are advertised everywhere. But I took my chance and boy was I in for a surprise. People told me:"you can't do La Escorial, valley of the fallen and Toledo in one day?" But Viator did it. Excellent guide, fantastic service and great people. Would so do it again!
A great trip; morning Escoreal and Valle de los Caides, afternoon Toledo. A little pity: the two hour lunchstop in Madrid. Better would be directly from Valle de los Caides to Toledo and have the lunch for overweighted tourists there. We would have had two more hours for sightseeing in Toledo.
This was excellent. However we were unable to book Prada and sight seeing tour as web site would not let me check out. Also I have tried to book Katmandu tour but no luck either. I have e mailed help centre and I response so have give. Up sadly
This was a very interesting tour, especially the Toledo portion.
The tour was incredible! I had been to Toledo before (on my own) but it was well worth taking a tour and getting more insight/knowledge of everything in Toledo. I was pleasantly surprised by everything El Escorial had to offer. The tour guide was great...very glad I took this tour.
Excellent tour. I would recommend to reverse the tour order in the winter, Toledo is beautiful and should be seen while still light is on.
Absolutely beautiful! Excellent tour, except that your pass many great tourist shops in Toledo only to get extended time at one that is not so good.
I loved Toledo!!!! A very nice city and I like the tour a lot. Our guides were very good and knowledgeable.
