Our tour guide Enrique was really super committed and really on the ball. He held everyone together and was super confident in all questions that were asked of him and could really answer everything about Spanish history. Beware now whining at a high level: we would of course be taken to a goldsmith where they still process gold in a very traditional way. I can understand that this is part of Toledo's history and that metalworking is part of the region. However, you really needed the 45 minutes more in Toledo to look around a little more. Otherwise GREAT!

Really good day out of you want to learn about Spanish history before Spain was the unified country we currently know if. If you go on the English tour make sure you get Olga. She was awesome.

The trip was excellent ( no delayed and nice bus ) . Olga our tour guide was super ! She explained in detail everything. Highly recommended when you go to Toledo ( whole day trip ).

It was good value for money. The journeys to and fro were comfortable. The tour guide knew his stuff as well.

Great discovery experience! Convenient when you're staying in Madrid and want to get away for less
