Amazing town to go and see. Tour is pretty well organised. Tour guide was very nice, direct, knowledgeable. She did give a good story and overview of history of the places we have seen. The only thing which should be clear up is that on this tour there is no lunch included. When I was booking it, I got impression that the lunch was included from the description given on www. It is not and it should be clearly stated!

We had a great time on this tour! Our tour guide was very good and we saw all of the important things to see in Toledo. We did the full day tour in order to see the cathedral, which was beautiful and absolutely worth it. If you have the time, I would highly recommend the full day tour in order to see the cathedral.
