Very disappointing tour. Did not see much of Toledo and had the feeling that all the guide wants is to get rid of us. First thing they take you to a very expensive souvenir shop, telling you that there will be no rest rooms available for the rest of the day, which of course is not true. At the end... More

The reviews on here are all over the place, we booked them through our hotel not knowing who we had until the front desk gave us our reservations. We looked them up on TripAdvisor and had no clue what to expect. Here's our experience: no chaos, left on time, good bus and comfortable ride. Toledo is beautiful, our tour guide... More

We did a half day trip to Valley of the Fallen and El Escorial. The tour guide while on the bus was barely audible and there was a lot of time that was silent. Once we arrived at El Escorial, we separated into two groups (English speaking and Spanish)had to move rapidly. Beware- lots of stairs which wouldn't have been... More

We experienced a very disappointing Toledo half-day tour with Julia. The bus was nice, everything else was terrible! The guide was barley audible even after repeated requests. The monotone, robot voice was not effective. No welcome for anyone, although we were reminded 4 times in the first 10 minutes to not eat or drink anything on the bus! Avoid. TIP:... More

Great tour and saw a lot of great things, but I couldn't understand the tour guide and the tour was meant to be in English only which it said online but once we got there he talked in Italian, Spanish and English and so we missed so much cause we thought he was talking in the other languages until we...

Since contributing toTripAdvisors 2 years ago, and having done over 100 reviews in close to 50 cities, this is the worst grading I have ever given.....and with good reasons.The tour we took was the Day Trip to Avila and Segovia on 2 July. One of the main reasons for us joining this tour was to see the well preserved Roman... More

This tour was average. The cities were nice to see: Avila-ancient 1st century city walls were captivating and then we were rushed off to a small family mosque and then right back to the bus to go to Segovia. Segovia was beautiful with intact aqueducts from the Roman times-that was amazing to see. We paid for the gastronomic lunch but... More

Actually she called out in Spanish three times as she quickly walked away to bus across busy street. This and chaotic office to sign in did not start tour well. We signed up... More
