Choose the full-day tour to enhance your experience of Toledo; see the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Cathedral of Toledo, a 13th-centruy structure declared Spain’s finest example of Gothic architecture, and take a guided tour of the interior.

This tour was amazing. Our tour guide was very informative. However Viator needs to indicate on the website that this tour requires a lot of uphill and downhill that my 79-year old mother definitely wouldn't and #39;t have been able to do.

We went on a half-day trip and the tour was very well organized. During those 3 hours it is a 5-hour trip but you spend around 3 hours in Toledo, 1 hour to get to Toledo and 1 hour to go back to Madrid, we saw all the most important sites in Toledo and our guide was very informative, friendly and funny. We had a great time.

This was great. The Tour Director was knowledgeable. I just wished that the group be concentrated with one language so time is not wasted in speaking in different languages. This comment applies to all tours!
