Wonderful way to see the Cathedral in Toledo
Deanna_W, Jan 2023
This was a perfect trip to Toledo - our guide was very knowledgeable and professional. The half day trip was the perfect length of time for us - we really went to see the cathedral, so lots of other sights would not have made the day better for us ( one of our main complaints with viator recently is that many of the trips are too long, with lots of filler to justify the amount of time allotted). Toledo is a beautiful city that one could explore for many days, however if you want to see the crown jewel of this city in a very stress-free way, this trip is perfect!

Could be better
Cristina_J, Nov 2022
The tour was focused more on the cathedral where we were able to go in and see the inside of it .. other than that it’s walking on the streets of Toledo .. it’s dual language too .. Spanish first and English after . So it’s too tiring because you have to listen to both .. if you can find just English tour or the language you prefer do it coz it will save you time ..

Half day Toledo Tour
Norilei_M, Nov 2022
Our guide was Clara and she was excellent in explaining in English. The walking pace and time she gave us to take pictures was enough. Glad to have taken this tour to compare with Madrid. Highly recommend this tour of you have extra time to take a half day tour from Madrid.

Excellent trip and guide....
George_O, Nov 2022
Excellent trip and guide. Very versed in 5 languages. Drop off should have been closer to cab stations
Good knowledge, great language skills, personable
Gary_G, Nov 2022
Clara as quite knowledgeable and provided great commentary throughout the tour. She demonstrated great language skills but switching flawlessly between English and Spanish. She provided explanations to that required little clarification.
Toledo afternoon tour
Tracy_P, Oct 2022
Super trip, and we got to see a lot of Toledo in a short space of time. The highlight for me was the El Greco. I would have liked a little more free time, but may visit Toledo again now that I have a feel for the place

Trip to Toledo
Alexandru_N, Oct 2022
Our trip to Toledo was a wonderful experience, our guide, Maria, is a very nice person she take care of us and she explained very well all the history, we make a very good choice to choose Julia Travel Agency. Next time we will choose the same Julia Travel.
Amazing full-day tour!
Patrick_B, Oct 2022
This was a great tour, highly recommend the full-day experience. You get to see so much more of Toledo this way. We had an excellent tour guide with Jesús, who gave great descriptions, was very interactive and passionate about Toledo. We also made a new friend with another traveler from the U.K. and had a great lunch off the Zocodover plaza. Amazing tour!
Great!
Sharon_D, Oct 2022
Saw many places. Great experience to for a short trip to see many things efficiently. Amanda was great. Ideally, would have liked more free time. 25 mins was too short to really do anything. Would make the trip 6 hours instead of 5 to give more free time
Amazing tour of Toledo
Andy_M, Oct 2022
Informative guide provided lots of interesting facts and historical tidbits. She knew the best locations for photos as well.
Good tour.
Cindy_T, Sep 2022
Tour guide, Gorge, is very knowledgeable. He explained the history well. The length of tour is just right.
Beautiful city, not enough time
Claire_E, Sep 2022
We did the half day afternoon tour. Note that the tour is conducted in both English AND Spanish, so everything is repeated twice. Toledo is very beautiful and lively in certain areas — if we had stayed in Madrid longer, we would have taken the full day tour (and would recommend this option instead of the half day). If you do the half day, be prepared to get your pictures done as you’re walking by the monuments. There isn’t enough time to go back to them during free time. Also be prepared to know where you want to get souvenirs ahead of time. We passed a lot of small, authentic shops during the tour and didn’t have the opportunity to go back during free time. Free time is in a very “touristy” part of town.
Afternoon in Toledo
Pamela_B, Aug 2022
Fun afternoon. Well organized. Ishmael was a great tour guide. Free time at end was great for a quick bite and some shopping.

Great customer service and beautiful tour!!!!
Kristin_N, Jul 2022
This was a wonderful trip! My family loved every part of it. Julia Travels was a great company to book with. We showed up a few minutes late on our original tour date after having some difficulty getting to the meeting point. The receptionist was so kind and wanted to work with us to join the tour on another date… at no extra cost! Just absolute kindness and great customer service. The trip was great and we got to see some amazing sights.
Worth Avery penny

Worth the time
MichaelA_G, Jul 2022
We learned a lot about the history and importance of Toledo. Despite the heat it was worth it. The painting br El Greco was particularly worth the climb
