This tour was run by Julia Travel which does an excellent job. Left and returned on time. Bus was comfortable. The guide was knowledgeable. Toledo is lovely and if you have the time, spend a full day there.

Really enjoyed this tour more that I thought I might. Elisa was an excellent guide. Kept us moving along but was patient and took more time when we needed or wanted. Had good explanations and history on the sites we visited. In general she was fun and made the tour fun. Toledo was a picturesque city with an interesting history, art and architecture. I typically don't do this type of group tour because I like to take more time where I like, but I never felt rushed and I think I got more out of this than I would have touring on my own. Do it!
