Was a bit unorganised to start off with but our tour guide was lovely and explained everything really well. She Walked us to the main city centre in Toledo, did some sight seeing on the way, then left us to do our own sight seeing. Was a good day overall but thought Toledo would be different.

Favor de corregir las horas de duración en su página web, dice que es de 5 horas y cuando abordé me dijeros que era de 6 horas, eso complicó mi día, ya que me vuelo salía a las 20:30 hrs y me vi obligada a tomar taxi para llegar al aeropuerto
