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.

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.

We were in Toledo on August 14th, apart from the heat everything went beautifully. The meeting point was easy to find. As soon as we arrived in Toledo the guide (Jesus) immediately told us about the city and then arrived at a panoramic point (5 minutes for photos). We then entered the city center. Jesus accompanied us explaining the history of the places of Toledo (about 1 hour and a half). Too bad for the free time (too little to be able to see everything). Overall, however, we were very satisfied. Driving was the highlight. Do not miss the synagogue and the monastery with the bracelet
It was an unforgettable experience, very beautiful landscapes, places, there is only very little free time in each place.
Tour that really deserves. Marta and Ignazio really very good, kind and helpful. I highly recommend it as an experience!
Super recommended. Thank you Marta for giving us this magical and complete tour. I invite you to
Really amazing and pretty place to visit! The guide was so funny and great!
