This tour was excellent!! the visit to Toledo was great! It is really fast, but it's the best way to enjoy this town if you are short of time. Then, during the afternoon the Madrid city tour was excellent as well as we had time to take photos at historic places. Totally worth the money!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2012

Our guide in Toledo was very knowledgable and took us to many sites. The panorama of Madrid was a great way to get to know the entire city not just the city center.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2012
