Disappointed - waste of time for non-Spanish speakers

This tour looked like a good deal - it was covering 3 cities in a single tour... And it might of been good if we had a different tour guide... But we've got Minerva, who didn't like to speak in English and therefore most of the tour was in Spanish. She was talking 5-7 min in Spanish, 1-2 min in English. The majority was English speaking and still most of the time we were waiting for our turn for those 1-2 minutes. She wasn't giving information all the time, we were moving from the spot to spot and in between spots while walking she indeed was giving some history to Spanish speaking people - 2 to be exact...If you are not a Spanish speaking- total waste of time!..
We had a tour in Toledo with the different company, with the guide also speaking both languages one after another and that was great! Nobody felt left alone. But Amigo tours are very Spanish oriented, so if you are not part of the community- avoid them.
We enjoy the tour tremendously, the tour director is very knowledgeable knowledgeable about the tour and make sure we all enjoy her hard working and show us best of those three city. She clear state everything.
This trip was very good organized and our guide Khan tried very much to make it very interesting. He understood the needs of all travelers giving us a choice to select from depending on interests of travelers and their physical capabilities.
