Full description

Take a walking tour of Madrid's vibrant neighborhoods, like Plaza Mayor and Las Letras, before visiting the Prado Museum for a guided tour of Spain’s greatest masterpieces. Get driven to Toledo to see the historical side of the region and take an optional tour of its gothic cathedral.

Start your day at Plaza San Miguel where your guide will be waiting for you. Take a walking tour through Plaza Mayor, on to Plaza del Sol, and to the historic district of Las Letras. Pass by Congreso de los Diputados and the Thyssen museum until you reach the Prado museum.

Enter Prado to learn about Velázquez, El Greco, and more great figures from Spanish art history with almost 8,000 works on display. Marvel at the majestic architecture of the museum that’s almost 200 years old and take some time to walk through the pristine gardens.

Head to Toledo and discover its inspiring reputation as the "city of three cultures" with your guide. See landscapes of the Spanish countryside while you relax during the ride to this UNESCO World Heritage city.

Choose the upgraded option for a guided tour inside the Primatial Cathedral, whose architecture is a perfect example of the Spanish Gothic style. Notice the intricate architecture and golden-detail of the interior that are characteristic of the gothic style.

Enjoy some free time to explore Toledo on your own and picture life in the Middle Ages walking through the narrow streets of the old quarter. Ask your guide for recommendations on some hidden gems for coffee or lunch before your ride back to Madrid.

First of all they gave us a tour of Madrid where we could see some of the most important points of the city and then the Prado Museum, where if it hadn't been for the guide I wouldn't have understood or learned anything. On the other hand, I had already been to Toledo a few years ago but this time and thanks to our guide during the experience I was able to enjoy much more than my first time in this ancient and beautiful city, this was a perfect end to the tour. In short, a tour that I would repeat again without hesitation

There is no better tour to discover Madrid and Toledo than this one, I have found it to be a sensational tour where I have learned a lot of things about the capital of Spain and Toledo, an ancient city that I had not known until now, but which I found charming. . Museo del Prado was great too and thanks in part to the guide's explanations this was my favorite part of the tour!!

Magnífico Tour!! No sabría decirte exactamente qué parte del Tour me gustó más porque el guía hizo muy ameno todo el recorrido y sentí que él disfrutaba dando las explicaciones (me he encontrado otros tours donde los guías ni siquiera sonreían). La visita al Prado me la esperaba mucho más aburrida ya que yo no soy muy fan de los museos pero tengo que decir que me encantó porque el guía lo hizo todo mucho más llevadero. Toledo fue de lo que más me gustó del tour, una ciudad donde me perdería para siempre. Al principio me asusté un poco porque el tour no tenia ninguna review pero al ver que el tour era de World Experience no dude en reservar, ya que este mismo año estuve en Barcelona y hice un par de tours excelentes también. La próxima vez que vuelva a Madrid repetiré este tour sin dudarlo.
