Would appreciate more information about the tour ahead of time. We did not realize that we had two half day tours from Madrid - we might have scheduled differently. Also, while we asked for English, we did not realize that the tour would be given in both English and Spanish- I always wondered whether our guide was giving more Spanish information than English. The tour to Ztiledo was quite controlled - the stops ( even at the gift shops) were the ones the tour company picked out - I had no opportunity to look at the linens I wanted to see. Finally, we arranged for this tour through get your guide. I did not realize that we would be out together with most people from Julia tours. I wish I had received more detailed information.
Sol, the tour guide was in my opinion quite disorganized and was unable to sustain the attention and interests of the group. With limited time, she could have managed the tour better. At times we would be walking for long periods of time in extreme cold weather. We had to switch buses. She was knowledgeable but lacked people skills. I would prefer someone far pleasant and interesting. We were not able to visit the inside of churches except maybe for one so my goal to compare churches was not fulfilled.
Great tour! Guide was knowledgeable and Toledo is an incredible city steeped in history; however, the lady at Julia travel was horrible when I showed up with my Get your Guide mobile voucher. She would not accept it and told me that it wasn’t valid and that wasn’t her company even though it said it was on the voucher. I tried twice and then finally had to go to another man there who took it immediately. Other than that it was well worth the money for the full day.
El Escorial is a must see place. The arrangements were very good but the guide was in a mighty rush and was walking well ahead of the group, mostly talking to herself. A little more patience on her part would have left a much better impression on all in the group.
The tour in Toledo was very short-1 hour walking tour and one hour into jewelry factory in Toledo. I did not pay money for commercial tour to jewelry store.
