Great Value

I booked this tour very last minute- I opted for the self guided tour that included a wristband to most of the main attractions in Toledo as well as a sandwich and drink for lunch. I honestly thought this was really good value for what I’d paid. I enjoyed the 1 hour walking tour as this was able to show us where everything was before setting off on our own to tour at our own pace. The only downside would be that perhaps the pickup time of 6:50pm is a bit later than needed.. I did a lot but I was done by about 4:30pm so I think a 5 or 5:30 pick up would have been better as 6:50pm is too long.

good organized tour in a worth seeing city

The tour is in principle very well organized and executed. Toledo is a beautiful city, with the day trip you have enough time to explore on your own. The only downside was the return trip, which was carried out in a bus together with the participants of the group who had booked the wine tasting, which they had evidently also extensively awarded.

Excellent organization

I purchased tickets for the tour through EasyJet. The organization is impeccable, separating customers with the green ticket from those with the pink or red ticket. Each color indicates the choice of paid services. The guided tour of the city lasted 40 minutes and not an hour (due to the rain or the small group?). The sandwiches included in the purchased offer, especially those with ham, really good, so much so that we bought others in the same shop. The guide is prepared, nice and pleasant. The anxiety came at the time of the meeting for the return trip. Despite the initial explanations about the meeting point, we and other passengers were a little dubious as to where the Pullman would stop. Allow me to suggest to indicate, not only the black P on the map, but also the fact that the bus stops at the side of a roundabout and add other details to better identify the meeting point. Punctuality both on departure and on return.
