Depart from Madrid in a comfortable, air-conditioned coach, and relax during the scenic drive to Toledo. Commence your guided tour in the old quarter and note the Arabic, Renaissance, and Gothic architecture as you navigate the ancient streets and learn about Toledo’s history. 

Gaze at the medieval castle, with its towering turrets reminiscent of fairy tales, and admire the ancient majesty of Santa Maria La Blanca Synagogue. Then, feast your eyes on some of El Greco’s most influential artworks in the Church of St Tome. Gaze at the meticulous brushstrokes in The Burial of the Count of Orgaz, and then head to the Monastery of Saint John of the Kings for a tour. 

Choose the full-day tour to enhance your experience of Toledo. See the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Cathedral of Toledo, a 13th-century structure declared Spain’s finest example of Gothic architecture, and take a guided tour of the interior.

If you opt for the Toledo and Madrid combo tour, you'll begin the morning with a half-day tour of Madrid, stopping at highlights such as the Royal Palace, the Prado Museum, Ventas Bullring, or Santiago Bernabéu Stadium, with a complimentary drink at the Hard Rock Café. Continue with a half-day tour of Toledo, including entry to the Church of St. Tome, the Synagogue of Santa Maria la Blanca, and the Mosque of El Cristo de la Luz.

Great day out in Toledo. Excellent walking tour and pace was perfect. Clara was our guide and her knowledge and English were excellent. As is always the case with an organised group I would have loved a little free time at the conclusion of the tour to stroll the lovely little streets and shops. Even an hour would have been good. We returned by 5pm so a 6pm finish would have allowed that extra time. We opted to do our own lunch.

Not plan at all, terrible customer service not willing to cooperate and find solution. When a demonstration at toledo was met, i tried to walk and gain some tiMe instead of waiting in the bus. I requested to meet the redt of the group when they would be available. Although I suggested to call the guide through cc, they never reached him successfully. He never had the courtesy to tell me they would delay! Awful experience
