I recommend this trip. We were not picked up at the hotel, but the departure location was a 5-minute walk from our hotel, so it was not a problem. The bus left on time. Maria, our tour guide, was very informative and spoke of the history of Toledo on the way there. The ride is only 1 hour from Madrid by bus. Once we were there, Maria guided us to the escalators that took us to the top of the city from where the bus dropped us off, and trust me, the escalator is necessary as the city is perched on top of a steep hill. After walking half of the city with the Maria, we split off because we had the Toledo on your own tour and headed to tour the cathedral on our own. After we had linch and took the trolly/train ride that was included in our tour price. The trolly is really only good to get a great view of Toledo from a great vantage point across the river, but had it been a separate charge, probably would not have been worth it.
If I have one complaint it is that we were under the impression that there would be a 4:30pm return bus to Madrid and there wasn't. Our options were 1pm or 7pm and this was not particularly clear when booking. However, we made the best of it and opted for the later bus.
Overall, it was a splendid day trip and worth the time.
Hassle free tour. Excellent guide. Must to do for anyone visiting Madrid.
Rather than mentioning Little bit of walking is required, disclaimer should be Little bit of walking uphill is required.
Bus picked us up at our Hotel to join the main bus leaving Madrid. We made a stop before entering Toledo, large souvenier shop with WC's - possibly 15mins. Upon reaching Toledo our guide brought us from the Bus Park up into the city via the escalator and we had a short guided tour to the main square, a bonus for us as we were not expecting this. Tourist train in Toledo an absolute must, sit on the right hand side I would suggest for photos We took the option of the 4.30pm bus back into Madrid. Absolutely value for money and Toledo is a beautiful walled city
Toledo is simply amazing...never had hoped to see such a place...i chose Toledo your own way and it was good -- not too tiring
Visiting at our own pace and according to our own interests was ideal. The tourist train is an absolute must as you see the town from outside the walls and across the river, an ideal preparation for seeing El Greco's painting of Toledo. We chose the 9.00 departure and stayed until 4.30 but could easily have stayed longer. Also, we had not expected to be guided as far as the cathedral from the coach drop-off and, although informative and useful, this did cut down on our time for visiting independently. Overall though, an excellent trip to this fabulous city.
Good tour intro on bus - overall gave us a good intro to the city - then had plenty of time to roam on our own- train tour was very worth the money - got to see everything - great to have option to come back on either the 2 pm bus or the 4:30 bus.
Enjoyed the town of Toledo and the history. We visited the Museum on our own and it was worth more than the entrance fee paid. There was so much to see. The Tourist Train ride was very nice as the views are very picturesque. I would recommend the full day tour to be able to see most of Toledo.
We had such an amazing time with this tour. They gave you your own personal headphones to hear about the history of toledo. The town looks like it is built inside the walls of a Castle. There are a lot of hills to walk up and around but 100 worth it. If you are interested in going off alone there is a tourist information booth at the bottom of the town that will give you a map and additional tourist spots to visit!! 100 worth every cent paid We would recommend this tour.
It was truly an amazing city to see
The views from inside and outside were really espectacular. The people were very friendly with us the food was very good.
VTP delivered on their promise. We were driven safely and timely to Toledo back and forth from Madrid. The ticket for the tourist train was good too.
