Great option for those who don’t want or simply can’t spend a whole day in Toledo. Our guide was so nice and told us about the history and facts in such a wonderful way. We definitely got a perfect glimpse of Toledo and what it has to offer. The buses were comfortable and everything went according to schedule.

The beautiful city, but the rainy and windy weather combined with a bad attitude of the guide, she went very fast describing the places and did not give almost time to take photos, there was a moment that a companion and I stayed behind to do a purchase and the group got lost, we did not know where they were, we called the agency but they did not help us much, they only told us that they were waiting for us at the end of the tour in a certain place but for it to end there were more than 2 hours left, we we started looking for them and finally 15 minutes later we found them and the guide didn't even realize that we were lost, also the earpiece didn't fit my ear well (and those of others in the group too), it fell off every moment and no longer I was able to put it on and it also ran out of battery, I couldn't hear anything anymore, the guide gave me another one almost at the end of the tour but it didn't have a battery either, a disaster!!!

Alhambra is a massive complex and it was incredible to navigate it with a guide. Although we didn’t get to Nasrid palace, we saw everything else and learned so much. I would definitely recommend this tour! You will have to walk up the hill so make sure your legs are well rested!
