Full description
The tour departs the busy city of Madrid and heads to the first stop of the day, the UNESCO World Heritage listed city of Toledo. Armed with the tourist information pack provided by your guide, head to the square of Zocover in the heart of the city to start the tour of this fascinating location.

Enjoy around 3.5 hours to explore Toledo and learn about its culturally rich legacy that has been influenced by the Arabs, Jews and Christians who lived here together for centuries. Visit the admirable Toledo Cathedral, the cultural labyrinth of the Jewish Quater, and the Alcázar of Toledo among other monuments. Wander through narrow streets and alley ways, palatial mansions, churches, mosques and synagogues.

Head back to the bus and continue to Segovia, another UNESCO World Heritage listed city. Visit the Aqueduct of Segovia, a prodigy of Roman engineering and an icon that represents this beautiful city. From the Aqueduct, head into the medieval part of town and enjoy the stunning views from the Canaleja, then continue onto the Plaza Mayor and marvel at the spectacular Segovia Cathedra.
