We booked a small group tour but because nobody else showed up, the four of us friends enjoyed a private tour with our guide, Marta. We weren't that interested in the winery so we spent the entire day in Toledo instead. The gastronomic lunch of roast lamb was excellent. Toledo deserves a full day. The Cathedral is spectacular and the views stunning. Marta spoke beautiful English, was knowledgeable, funny and a pleasure to be with. She made the day special.

The guide was great, I wish the small group would have been less than 15 pp not 20 pp. the tour was great wish I had done full day in Toledo as there is so much see and do. Include the zip line across the river would have been great

We were extremely fortunate because we were the only ones who showed up for this small group tour, so we ended up with a private tour. Our guide, Marta, was wonderful. So smart, passionate and informative and we learned so much about the history of this interesting Spanish city. We also really enjoyed the visit to the vineyard/winery and the accompanying wine tasting. I highly recommend this tour which I think would've been equally as good if there were a few other people in the group.

Small English speaking only group of 14 traveling in small coach was extremely comfortable. Our guide Jorge did a great job providing a historical background of the Lamancha region and Toledo in particular. Walking Toledo was a little challenging in 100 degree F heat, but guide was patiently accommodating to the group's speed. Despite the weather, Toledo was very interesting and the interior of the Cathedral must not be missed. In my opinion, equally spectacular as St. Peter's in Rome. Did lunch on our own at Scorpion Bar/Grill. Much cheaper than lunch option and food was wonderful. Our teen regrets not doing the zipline across the river, something to consider for others. Wine tasting was basic vineyard tour followed by 3 wine tastings and opportunity to purchase. Tour was nice finish to the day and did not limit what we needed to see in Toledo. Highly recommend.
