We visited Toledo, the long-time capital of Spain, on a perfect day. We took the train station from Madrid from the Atoche Station at 9:20 and our guide met us at the train station at 9:53. Buy your tickets on line and even though you may not know your return time, you can always exchange your ticket for an earlier (but not later) departure. The cathedral is stunningly beautiful with unique art and history. The Jewish section of town is interesting as well, with but two remaining synagogues, one with Moorish architecture, the other with a comprehensive history of Judaism in general and in Spain specifically. Our guide took us into the basement of a Jewish home with a hidden Mikvah which we suspect was used by Marranos. We ended with El Greco's "Burial of the Count of Orgaz", surely his greatest painting. The guide also gave us a great recommendation for lunch, and after wandering for another couple hours we returned to Madrid at 5:30. Our best day in Spain.
great tour, David was very knowledgeable and helpful, the waitress (didn't catch her name) could work a little on her attitude, but in general a good experience, was a little rushed but the itinerary was extensive and you can't always plan for people being late, perfect if you want to take a quick look to the important places and have an idea of the history, in case you want to dig deeper in other time, would recommend!
Totally worth the value. Ivan was very knowledgable and friendly, and spoke english and spanish very well. The tour was planned out very well and gave us a lot of information and enough time on our own to explore different shops and cafes and other sights that we wanted to see. Would recommend to anyone for a great day trip.
Great tour with Ivan. It is a full day tour, quite packed. Since Segovia and Toledo are 2h away, there is a lot of driving involved. But nevertheless there is enough time for exploring, walking a lot and enjoying those 2 beautiful cities.
Excelente Guia con la mejor actitud y muy buen conocimiento con datos interesantes y curiosos, el transporte fue adecuado y el tiempo perfecto para recorrer las dos locaciones.
