We rode a coach bus from Madrid to Toledo. Our guide, Diana, spoke in Spanish for everyone and English for us. She was very informative and enthusiastic which made everything she had to say even more interesting. The walking tour was easy to keep up with and not too long or short. We were also given plenty of time to do our own activities (zip line- which was fun too! Good value for money and photos are a great bonus). We also had time to get some food for an early dinner and than meander through the streets before heading back to the meeting point. Definitely recommend for someone who wants to see lots of Toledo in a short time frame.
Very nice experience. Very good guide in Toledo, moving on time. The cableway is a really nice experience!
