What people are saying about Toledo
The city is beautiful, if you plan to make a short visit, check the places to visit, the time is short and the streets are steep, which makes the trip slower
Well organized! To return at 13:00 It is a short time to get to know the city, as only in the Cathedral you will spend about 2 hours inside.
Loved this tour. Affordable and enough time to see as much as possible. The 45 minute tour guide was very informative.
The walk was very nice, everything I knew and the excellent guide. Point against the bus had no air conditioning.
The guide was great. She covered the main points and we had time to exercise explore the area after ourselves.
