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.
This was a great tour. I enjoyed the tour guide for the first part of the trip; for the Toledo trip, the tour guide was not very nice. Although you should visit both places, this is quite a lot to do in one day.
It was a wonderful experience. The guides were very nice and had a very broad knowledge. The tour was organized, punctual, and for us, a spectacular encounter with history, art and Spanish architecture of each period.
Excellent tour for the first half of the day, with El Escorial and the Valley of the Fallen. However, for Toledo, I would recommend going by yourself, as for this half-day tour, you don't get to see many important places as the Alcazar, the Cathedral, the Alcantara bridge, Casa Museo el Greco.
Reasonable tour but approach did not give the best view of the splendure of El Escorial and its size. It is quite hard walking in Toledo
This is a great tour , the tour operator was a bit tricky to find, but the guide was excellent , changed bus for the afternoon tour of Toledo . Personally I would have liked to have had a whole day in Toledo . Next time maybe.
The all day tour was worth the money-but don't get the lunch option, they bring you back to Madrid and take you around the corner to a café that is marginal at best and served an American inspired "traditional" lunch, not a Spanish traditional. The City and Monastery were absolutely gorgeous, the history amazing, but to see it all it is a little rushed and our Guide gave most of the tour's extensive explainations in Spanish then said "this is a Monastery" in English. Toledo is worth a whole day trip on it's own!! Hint: wear really comfortable shoes, lots of walking on cobble stone.
