Greet your knowledgeable guide at a central Madrid location and climb aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan for the scenic 1-hour journey to Toledo. Get acquainted with the history of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed site as your guide offers insight into one of the oldest cities in Europe.

On arrival, disembark to admire the Gothic grandeur of Primate Cathedral of Saint Mary, a colossal 13th-century structure that exudes architectural grace. Next, visit the 12th-century Church of Santo Tomé and appreciate one of El Greco’s most famous paintings within; hear of the inspiration behind The Burial of the Count of Orgaz, and then continue to Sinagoga de Santa Maria.

Observe the interesting arches that comprise the Jewish place of worship, and then venture to the beautiful Mosque of El Cristo to see yet another architectural style; hear of the city’s Muslim history on a guided tour and relish the decorative beauty inside of the building.

Depending on which option you selected, spend some leisurely free time exploring Toledo independently or make your way to an esteemed eatery for a traditional Spanish lunch. See the Itinerary section for a sample menu.

Reconvene with your guide and group at a pre-arranged departure point and head to a local wine cellar to taste some of the region’s finest wine. Savor the robust flavor of three wines and then return to your vehicle for the short journey back to Madrid.

Lovely Historical Tour

This tour took in the main parts of Toledo with a very knowledgeable and friendly guide. The buildings and views over Toledo were stunning and the whole town is scenic. We took advantage of the tourist lunch which I have to say was good value for money. A word of warning, Toledo is built on a hill and there were lots of steep cobbled streets to walk up and down, so if you have any mobility problems then this tour may not be for you.

Just not great

When the tour guide wasn’t texting people on his phone, he was giving us poorly translated versions of the history happening around us. The bus parked at the bottom of the hill and made us HIKE up to see former worshipping sites that were completely empty. The winery was nice but only 1 hour of the trip. Would not recommend to wine connoisseurs and people who aren’t good with uphill hikes.

A must see for Toledo . Our tour guide was excellent and well versed in where we went , however it was difficult to hear him in the bus. The wine trip was well worth going to . A great day and so glad we went

Toledo is Amazing

The trip was very pleasant, travelling through beautiful countryside. The time in Toledo seemed a bit short, and we wished we had stayed in the town instead of going on the bus to the pre-arranged lunch. The food was not great and we would have enjoyed some free time in the town much more. The winery was a long way from anywhere, and the time there was too long. The stop at the factory was interesting.

Toledo Small-Group Tour from Madrid with Wine Tasting

Tour was organized well and provided a comprehensive experience of the magnificent city of Toledo.Beatrice, our tour guide, was both knowledgeable and pleasant to be with on our all day excursion. Mateo, our tour driver, kept us safe and punctual on a very comfortable small-sized transport. Marie, the winery host, shared interesting insight into the wine making process and of course excellent wine!Lunch on our own in a local bar added authenticity to our memorable experience.

Fun day

A great day visiting a beautiful old city. So glad we took a guided tour as the meandering streets and alleyways would have been a challenge to maneuver on our own. A couple of hours was just perfect to see the city. The tour included a very nice traditional lunch which was outside of town. The winery was a half hour ride from there. Would probably opt to do something different. I guess I didn’t realize it was far from town and I’ve visited a winery before so the tour was very good but I’ve heard it before. Great guide. Taking the minibus was a good decision too.

This is a really fun day. Enjoyed...

This is a really fun day. Enjoyed the tour of Toledo and the wine tasting. The optional lunch is a bit of a disaster. If you don't select the lunch, which i wouldn't recommend, they come back and get you in town. of course, we rushed to meet them and then they were late because group lunches take forever. I think they should just nix the lunch completely and let everyone go on their own or just explore the town more. Also, i didn't appreciate the factor tour where we were supposed to buy things.

Tour guide was very knowledgeable. It's a lot of walking up and down hills so be prepared. I don't recommend purchasing the lunch, you will be better off getting lunch on your own

Toledo is a easy and wonderful day...

Toledo is a easy and wonderful day trip from Madrid. We had a very small group only 3! so our tour through the city felt very personable. The coach that drove us was very nice. We especially enjoyed visiting the winery and could have spent more time there. We opted not to have the lunch, but ended up eating the provided lunch and paying for it on our own. The good part of this was that while driving up to the lunch location we stopped for some fabulous, picturesque views of Toledo which we would have missed otherwise. The lunch was only okay and part of us wishes we would have stayed to explore the town more rather than sitting down for a long lunch. Overall a recommended day trip!
