We had a great tour with Maria as our tour guide. The bus was comfortable. We were able to leave our car seat on the bus. Toledo is an amazing city and we enjoyed learning about the architecture and old churches and buildings.

Jorge was an excellent guide - provided great context for everything we saw. I was impressed with his knowledge, not to mention his ability to herd a big group of people through the streets and not lose any of us.

Not bad for an "overview" of the city. Too bad the audio guides are quite tired. The walking tour was interesting but for non-Hispanic people it's complicated.

Great way to get from the train to center of Toledo. The bus gave us great views of the city. Very informative.

It was a nice and quick way to check around Outside Toledo. I used this to get to Mirador.
