Depart from Madrid in a comfortable, air-conditioned coach, 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.

Hotel pick up was 40 minutes late, organization was not up to par with such a large group and trip left Madrid half an hour later of the scheduled time, The guide only answered questions either with a yes or no with no specific details.

This tour is great, you hit all the majors sites in Toledo and the guide is very knowledgable. I had the higher level lunch included in the tour and it was awful... Stale bread, meat with lots of bones and cheap appetizers. My advise is to skip the lunch and do lunch on your own. You will have a better experience.

We did the half day tour of Toledo - an amazing city. The bus stops at a spot where you can take unbelievable photos. Our guide was alternating between Spanish and English during the trip and seemed to speak more in Spanish than in English and she was a bit difficult to understand

Morning tour of Madrid was on a bus entirely. You couldn't see anything and it was a bilingual tour so half spanish, half english, made it difficult to tune in and out to what guide was saying. We left the tour early it was awful. Afternoon in Toledo could have been interesting but our same guide from the Madrid AM tour was less than enthusiastic, she couldn't wait for the day to end, that was obvious.

Our guide was superb - but we had to speedwalk through the sights to fit it all in. By the last stop, everyone was tired. And much of the walking is uphill. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes. The lunch was definitely worth doing as well - delicious food in an historic house. After much walking in the heat, it was nice to sit in a beautiful old house and be waited on.

Elisa is a terrific guide. She is knowledgeable, fun, friendly, patient. She walks slowly enough for everyone to keep up. She lets us stop to take photos.

We did the full day tour but did not get lunch. Instead we did lunch on our own at a restaurant near the meeting point at the bridge - Museeo de Productos. The best food we’ve had in Spain!
Our guide gave the tour in both English and Spanish speaking one sentence in each language at a time. I enjoyed the way she did the tour and it actually helped me brush up on my Spanish. Toledo is beautiful and not too far from Madrid. I would recommended this tour.
