What people are saying about Toledo

We visited Toledo in October and had the pleasure of spending the day with Javier. He's pretty passionate and knowledgeable about his hometown, and he's full of insights and stories to tell. Javi took care of all the trip details, including having a taxi waiting to take us for a panoramic ride, up to ensure we had a lunch reservation at a great restaurant. We enjoyed his company, valuable tips, friendliness, and overall discovering Toledo with a great guide. The highlight of our visit was visiting the Cathedral, which I recommend doing together with Javier.

The tour was amazing. Natalia picked us up at the train station with a big taxi as we were 5. Then she took us to admire the old city from afar, spectacular view! Then the taxi dropped us off in front of the monastery and we practically crossed the old city on foot. We stopped at the Church with a wonderful painting by El Greco. We pass through the Jewish quarter, the Cathedral and end up in the commercial square. She was very attentive and her explanations very good. Despite being Spanish, his Portuguese was amazing!!

Roberto was a very knowledgeable local showing us the places to see in Toledo and where we could eat. It was a great experience!

Anhrl was really interesting and very personable. The tour was great, and we saw a lot in two hours.
