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.
Hello: this was a great tour and well worth it as many people told me it’s too complicated to do it yourself. So I was very happy with everything. Except as I was walking to find a seat on the bus, the driver started to move, and I fell quite hard on the floor. I don’t why he didn’t wait until I was safely in my seat. I didn’t say anything yet I felt bruising around my ribs after a few hours and for days after.
Had a great time. Comfortable bus ride to Toledo. 2 really nice informative guides. The cathedral was outstanding. Lunch is in your own and we found a nice local tapas restaurant and enjoyed some wine with our meal.
The transportation was comfortable and timely. The guide was wonderful and time on our own was just perfect. I would recommend this to everyone. Thanks so much!
Everything was perfect, punctuality on time, very professional interpretation by Irene and a very pleasant personality as well thank you.
