I really enjoyed this tour to Toledo. The guide was very friendly and we got to see a great deal of the countryside on the way.

This trip was perfect in length and very comfortable in travel. Whereas walking was expected, one needs to be prepared to keep up with the guide by walking up and down narrow, car traveled streets at a quick pace. We had no issues but it would not work as well for someone in a wheel chair or one who is not fairly quick of foot. Loved all we saw, loved all of the history and felt the guide speaking english did very well. Would recommend highly to anyone to take this trip, loved it.

La caminata fue larga y dura, pero valio la pena, impresionante, como fue el segundo dia de diez que duro la estadia, y hubo que caminarlo, lo disfrutamos mucho y la facinacion arquitectonica me llevo de un conocimiento aprendido a una realidad que provoca que la mente haga un rapido ajuste de lo que sabias a lo que estas viendo.
