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.

I was not in favor of doing a tourist trip, but found this trip excellent. The guide was very good and the guide imparted a lot of local knowledge

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2016

This all day tour was great! We chose the all day tour because the tour includes the interior of the cathedral, which is incredible. A couple of caveats: there is an escalator to take tourists up the steep hill, but there's still some upward walking. My husband and I are seniors, and our legs are still recovering six days later. If I were going again, I would not chose the tour lunch. The food was great, but if you choose lunch on your own, you can stop at the gift shops and buy a book about the cathedral. We did go to the Damascene Factory Store, so that was a plus.

Very well done. Coach was very nice. Guide was very competent and handled the language split in the group very well - group was mainly Spanish speaking but she did not overlook the English speakers. Lunch was a little touristy but acceptable. Highly recommend this trip.

This tour was all worth its price ! The guide was very knowledgeable and spoke quite good English. It is very intensive with the walking but all very worth it in the end. Toledo is a beautiful city full of art and history.
The lunch was also very good and with a view. All in all we all had a wonderful day.
