Overall a nice half day tour and the guide was excellent in using both Spanish and English language. Although we had signed up for an English tour it was Bilingual.

Could have done without the stops in the souvenir shops before and after the tour which would have allowed an extra hour in Toledo itself.

Overall good value for money. Some people chose to just take the transport and explore the city on their own and joined the bus at the end at time for departure which may be a better option to maximise the time in this beautiful medieval city.

Where do we start?...

We were in Madrid and unexpectedly had some time and wanted to visit Toledo. As a last minute decision we saw the tours being advertised in multiple kiosks and thought as this was all the same tour company thought it would not be so bad.

I guessed wrong...

Here are the bad in quick points
1) They tell you to arrive at 8am.
a) Then at 8:30 AM a rep arrives and says wait
b) Then 9:00 AM another rep comes others and says wait
c) Then at 9:15 AM finally a bus comes
d) Then they transport to a hub location
e) Then at 9:45 AM we are transferred to yet another bus
f) Then at 10:15 AM we finally depart
2) We arrive in Toledo
3) The self guided tour participants are dropped off
4) We are transported to a souvenier shop on the supposition of a "bathroom break"
a) ridiculous... As there are actual guidea that guide you to the people that make the souvniers, they could have told us the history of damascus steel which would have been better than making of pendants... So turned off by this!!
5) Then Bus departs to a spot with a panoramic view of Toledo
6) Next is the ride back to where we dropped off the self guided tour guests
7) We take the elevators to the top
8) The we are herded to key spots
9) No real time to stop for souvenier shopping, resting or anything.
10) you are transported back to the hub area
a) YOU HAVE TO FIND YOUR OWN WAY BACK TO YOUR ORIGINAL STARTING POINT

We left our hotel at 7:45 AM and returned 4:30 PM a total of 9 hours.
Because of the shuttling, and herding and this and that. The actual tour is only about 2 1/2 hours long

Overall:
It is semi worth the price, but marginally.
I was more annoyed at the waiting and herding and lack of information that is given.
That in itself made the whole tour very annoying.

They also said we would be able to take a later bus back. Making the guided part a half day and by taking the later bus we could have some time for ourselves, but they said no, but it was an option on the brochure at the kiosk.

To be honest I would try and find a smaller, better tour company suited to your needs and not their needs. It is their way or no way and it is not a friendly tour.

We took the Toledo 1/2 day tour from Madrid. First off we left at least a 1/2 hour late, then went to another meeting point where we shuffled people on and off buses based on where they were going which took another 15 minutes before we finally left. Once we were on our way and our tour guide started to talk we could not understand him as the microphone did not work properly. Once we arrived in Toledo we were taken on a 1/2 hour tour (which should have been one hour) so that was a dissappointment. Then we were left to our free time which was alright, however was only 1 1/2 hours due to our late start. When it was time to go back we boarded a bus to drive 5 minutes further where we again sat and waited again for at least another 1/2 hour. We then left to go back to Madrid we had a good ride, however once we arrived we were dropped off at a different spot than where we were picked up in the morning and when we asked the tour guide how to get back to our starting point he just pointed to us to go down the street to find our way back. All in all this was a very disappointing tour.

DON'T HIRE THIS COMPANY!

We bought the "On Your Own" tickets for the 3 PM bus and this happened:

1. They asked us to be there at 14.45 but the bus left the meeting point at 15.15. Half hour lost
2. They took us to a Store where they kept us for 1 hour and only after that shopping tour they took us to Toledo.
3. We arrived at 17.15 to Toledo city (but we arrived at 16.00, so we've lost an entire hour inside that unsolicited visit to the store).
4. The last visit to the Alcazar of Toledo (the city's main touristic point) is at 16.30, so we've lost it while we were waiting at that unsolicited store visit.
5. After losing the city's main attraction, they asked us to be at 18.45 at the meeting point but the bus showed up at 19.15. Another half hour lost.
6. Finally, the bus was overcrowded with twice the amount of people we came with.
7. So I couldn't visit the Alcazar because we lost one hour at the store (even considering that we bought the "On your way" ticket that means No Guided Visits). So we had to run through the city without seeing a thing and then waiting under the sun for the bus to pick us up (late).

A day ruined, a visit to Toledo waisted and money given to a very unprofessional company.

Bought tickets for the next day from a nice vendor in Plaza mayor. Should’ve done our research before buying but we were planning this Toledo day trip quite last minute. He goes over every option and we decide to do a half-day tour from 1030-1630. He puts our pickup point to be near our hotel which isn’t too far from the departure point and sets it at 1000. On the day, no one comes and we just decide to taxi over. When we talk to the guy at the front desk about the pick up he tells us “No pickups today.” And we ask him what would’ve happened if we had stayed there waiting for our pick up and he just shrugged. No apology or anything. Tour guide spoke mostly spanish and almost no English. Good thing we did the on your own tour instead of a guided tour or it could’ve been a much worse experience. This is a reminder to definitely do your research before booking anything!!

Should have known this would be horrible when they didn’t even acknowledge/respond to my text asking for confirmation a day before.
A crowd of people in a fairly small room by 3 pm. Announcements are made in Spanish, yet not fully intelligible (my family is Hispanic). We all walk out and end up on the wrong bus. We are asked to debark and switch. A woman tour guide announces we will be going alone (why?) with driver that will stop on the way for WC needs. Bus is comfortable. Driver announces a few blocks down that office disapproved of the stop on the way. We get to Toledo and meet an old man, Andres. Grumpy throughout, some Italian tourists not helping either, with their sense of entitlement. No individual headphones. Andrés has a microphone hooked to a loudspeaker that works when it wants. Beautiful city. Andrés shares towards the end that he’s been doing this for this company for many years: it sounds like his grumpy attitude is already accepted by the company as a given. Tour of city ends and Andres leaves us on bus to be taken by a new driver that stays mute even when tour ends in Madrid. He just opens doors of bus and says nothing.
No sense of continuity, no organization. They cover as needed, various different tours happening at the same time with different options with no clarity.

My wife and I, plus our son & daughter-in-law, took the tour from Madrid (they picked us up in a charter bus a couple of blocks from our hotel) to Toledo. For 22 euro, we received the round trip bus plus a 50 minute guided tour of Toledo. For the low cost, it was definitely worth it. However, you have only 2 return times for coming back to Madrid - 2 hours after arrival or 8 hours after arrival - and the 2 hours before departure was including the guided tour. So, it was a little rushed if you didn't want to stay the additional 6 more hours. The guide gave us very good information about the area - explaining it in Spanish as well as English. We would recommend this tour.
