Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

Traveling by train between the cities is really fast, so you get more time to spend sightseeing. I’d recommend looking at Toledo’s monuments on the hop-on hop-off tour, and then visiting the most interesting ones with your Toledo card. Don’t miss the Cathedral of Toledo – it’s my favorite!

By all means spend a day in Toledo, and this tour makes it easy and interesting. After the 30-minute train from Madrid, you transfer to a double-decker at Toledo's train station and are taken completely around the city listening to recorded audio commentary. Disembark near one of the city gates, meet your guide, ride the escalators up to the main part of the city, and tour the cathedral with your guide. The rest of the day is free to visit other sites. Return to the train station in the evening for the journey back to Madrid. Note: You also get a voucher for a meal at one of three places. Check early in the day: some honor the voucher only for lunch time.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2016

We found this tour very good and excellent value, and would recommend it. One thing to note is that if you are picking up your tickets from the central railway station make sure you know where the shop that has the tickets is situated- and leave enough time to find it. We got to the station with plenty of time to spare, but if we had not done so we may have missed the train.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2016

I was afraid that this wouldn and #39;t be enough time, but it was the perfect amount. And our guide through the Cathedral was one of the absolute best guides we had on our entire vacation (and we had some good ones!) Definitely worth booking!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2016

An amazing hilltop city that is easily walkable. Finding the small office in Madrid station was easy enough by just asking, it was just past the information room as you walk through the glass doors, immediately on the left. The train tickets issues your seats and its a short trip there. You will want to take photos of the view from the train. After leaving the train there is another easy to find desk right there on the platform which will provide you with tickets for your guided tour. Jump on the bus and look at the view as you circle the city from below. The guide brings you to the top via many escalators better than walking. The tour was comprehensive and not too long, giving plenty of time to explore on your own and enjoy a nice lunch. I'm so glad we saw Toledo as it's another historic city combining Spanish, Arab and Jewish cultures.
