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.

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 a wonderful experience. Everything is in order and the tour guide are very helpful and knowledgeable.
A very well organized trip. The guides are friendly, they speak in English. It's worth the trip!
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!
