What people are saying about Museo del Greco

Definitely alleviates the headache of having to wait in the ticket line. The line was really long at the crack of done. It’s pointless looking at historical items and monuments when you don’t understand the story behind it. We always get guided tours when we travel. The guide for this tour is great! They leave enough breaks in between tours for bathroom breaks. And a healthy amount of free time to explore on your own. This tour also gives you audio receivers so that you can hear your guide among the crowd.

It was a great day and well worth it. Our guide Christina was amazing very knowledgeable and knew the city well. Toledo is a must see. We had enough free time to walk around the city and take in the wonderful sites.
