Toledo Half-Day or Full-Day Trip from Madrid

Depart from Madrid in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan and relax during the scenic drive to Toledo, a cultural melting pot renowned for its harmonious combination of three cultures. Commence your guided tour in the old quarter and note the Arabic, Renaissance and Gothic architecture as you navigate the ancient labyrinth and learn about Toledo’s intriguing history. 

Gaze at the medieval castle, with its towering turrets reminiscent of fairy tales, and admire the ancient majesty of Santa Maria La Blanca Synagogue, the oldest synagogue in Europe. Then, feast your eyes on some of El Greco’s most influential artworks in the Church of St Tome; gaze at the meticulous brushstrokes in The Burial of the Count of Orgaz and then head to the Monastery of Saint John of the Kings for a tour. 

Stroll amid the courtyard cloisters and royal coats of arms in the religious structure and then head to the house of local sculptor Victorio Macho to see the eponymous museum dedicated to his impressive sculptures. 

Choose the full-day tour to enhance your experience of Toledo. See the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Cathedral of Toledo, a 13th-century structure declared Spain’s finest example of Gothic architecture, and take a guided tour of the interior.

This was a great tour. Perfect length but I would have to agree with others that this tour requires a lot of walking up and down uneven corridors and could be a bit much for someone who is very young or very old. Our guide was great! I felt like she took just as much time speaking English and Spanish. I never felt left out. She was very knowledgable as well. Must do!

Well planned, and the guide was very informative. The staff at the departure point made sure all were on the correct bus, which is not an easy task!. Typical lunch was at a beautiful traditional place up on the hill, and the spots on the tour were well chosen. The guide answered any questions and kept a beautiful pace.

The tour was efficient and very comfortable. There was ample opportunity for refreshments, souvenirs and rest stops. Tour guide was multi-lingual. Toledo tour was super and the half day Madrid touraccomplished an extraordinary amount for us.

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.
