We really enjoyed our tour in Toledo with our guide (Alec I think). He was friendly, super prepared, and showed us the best spots to visit. I only suggest that the tour company gives tourists audio guides to hear the guide better.

It worth every penny to take this tour. Both towns, Toledo and Segovia are incredible. To many things to see in a few hours walk. I definitely will come next time to spend a full day in each of them. In Toledo lastimously we couldn’t visit the church where the famous paint of el Greco is kept because it was monday. They don’t open mondays.

The trip was wonderful. Very fast though. It felt rushed But if you don’t have much time and want to see a lot this is a great bang for your buck. Segovia was our favorite, especially seeing the Roman Aqueducts.

The trip was well planned and the tours were informative and worthwhile. The only reason I gave this a 4* rating is the lunch was not very good. Nacho was an excellent guide and our bus driver Sous did a good job driving so many miles. We learned a lot about Spanish history.

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.
