Moises is a well informed guide. He made the tour great. Toledo is a nice city. Wish we had longer to spend in the not so touristy areas but overall a great trip and glad I was with this particular tour guide.
Cathedral is great, a must-see. You may have to return to see more of Toledo as the trip is fantastic but not enough time to shop. Guide Paco was excellent. Didn't really enjoy the traditional lunch
