Amazing tour. The drive to and from Toledo was comfortable and quick. The tour-guide was very knowledgeable and tells a lot about the city in Spanish and English. If you enjoy history/culture or like to see towns that look like medieval videogames this town itself is a must in my opinion. Very nice atmosphere, good food all around and the views are amazing. The zip line was nice as well, a little underwhelming but for €10 it’s a nice addition to the already amazing tour.

A fabulous recent visit to Toledo thanks to our very knowledgeable guide Christina. Toledo is steeped in history with stunning architecture and places to visit of interest, including some lovely unique shops. There are cobbled streets on some of the route, and some uphill walks which can't be avoided, something to consider for those with mobility issues. Definitely worth a visit if heading to Madrid

Family of three here. We really enjoyed the tour and love the fact that we have extra time to explore the old town by ourselves after the walking tour. Jesus our tour guide was fantastic. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes and bring lots of water

Amazing informative tour. Zip line was extremely fun. Definitely recommend.

Bellissima esperienza! Aranxa preparatissima e gentile, grazie.
