We had a fantastic experience on our visit,from the moment we left Madrid
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.
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.
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!
Great day out.saw places we would not have known about and our guide gave us lots of information
Guide was EXCELLENT, learned and good deal and interesting to listen to.
this was worth the time and money. loved it all. she had a great pace. very knowledgable. wish I could recall her name.
Everything and everyone involved was exceptional. The staff at both train stations and the guide were excellent.
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.
What a delightful day. Our only regret was that we did not spend more time in this beautiful city. Our tour Alexandria was very patient with a group that had some mobility issues. She also had to explain everything once in Spanish and once in English for my husband and I. She was extremely knowledgeable and answered all our extra questions. Don't miss this tour and be sure to spend as much time as your possibly can here.
This is the Best Tour in Spain!!! The organization, planning and efficiency was amazing. It was really nice to have time to discover this beautiful city most do. I will definitely recommend this to anyone traveling to Toledo
Beautiful city. The tour guide was very knowledgeable. This was a highlight of our trip to Spain.
This tour is very well formatted and the timing of the day was just perfect. The train trip went very smoothly and it was great to be met with a team of people who got us to the appropriate bus. The ride up into the hills surrounding the city afforded us some breath-taking views of the city and was a highlight of the day for me. Our guide was terrific and the amount of time he spent introducing us to the city on our walk through the main square and adjoining streets and then enriching us with its history during our tour of the cathedral was just perfect to allow us to really enjoy the city after he left us on our own. I would highly recommend this tour to those who are visiting Toledo for the first time and to those who have been there several times before!
The tour was fabulous especially our absolutely FABULOUS guide that met us in Toledo and took us through the Cathedral, she was so lovely, knowledgable and sooo patient having to give the tour in both english and Spanish, my only regret is not getting her name so I could specifically thank her again for an incredible tour of the Cathedral and giving us so many great tips. What a joy! Viator is lucky to have her!!
My first trip with high-speed train, it was so nice. Toledo is a wonderful town. You have to see all monuments and church and el Greco pictures

The fast train was brilliant start as was the rest of the day. The panoramic photo stop was excellent as was the cathedral tour. If you were going to improve something, then directions to find the tour office in Madrid station could do with a map as could the restaurants for lunch. Overall would recommend to anyone as very well priced with great service
Perfect day trip out of Madrid with a great balance between guided tours and plenty of time to explore on our own. The double decker bus was a beautiful intro to the city, and the guided walking tour was informative and fun with a great guide! Lunch was great and the buildings were stunning!
This was an excellent choice for us. The Toledo pass provides all it says as advertised and allows ample time to get exhausted wandering the city. Only problem is that the kiosk at Atocha Station is closed after the last tour leaves and you can't grab your tickets late in the afternoon for the next day. Minor issue. Admission to four of the most noteworthy sites plus a View Of Toledo. Good guide for the brief intro to the City.
This was a super great way to see Toledo. Easy to find the tour office in the train station. Everything was provided. The train ride was quick and smooth. The hop on hop off bus and the tour guide were amazing. Overall a great value and we felt super safe and confident.
Very nice trip. Toledo is a beautiful town and has plenty to see, a lot more than i had initially thought. The train ride was quick and smooth, we were in Toledo in less than half an hour. The city card is very useful as not only does it include tickets to the main attractions, it allows you to jump the queues! I recommend getting the lunch option - you have 3 different restaurants to choose from. We went to the one closest to the main square and it was very good. Overall the trip is very good value for money.
