Toledo and Segovia Tour with Alcazar Entrance from Madrid

1,015 reviews
Visiting both Toledo and Segovia in a day from Madrid is near impossible without a car rental and some serious time management. On this trip, you get to see both cities as a guide charts their history, minus the stress of organizing transport. Plus, you’re certain of seeing the key sights, including Toledo’s Primada Cathedral, and Segovia’s Roman aqueduct and Alcazar. Ideal if you’re pressed for time and want a day out of Madrid.

One day bus tour of Toledo and Segovia left us ot wander the town and find food. Some went to MacDonald's YIKES!!! Walk a block or two GPS and find this shop with diagonal corner doorway. Sign offered a sandwich for three Euro. One of the best "meals" of our trip: absolutely delicious long roll with a stripe of oil and Iberian ham with Manchego cheese. You are in the center of Manchego country and it is excellent. We tried a few slices of the other offerings.: chorizo and sausage, all screaming with flavor. You will never be happy with American cheese and ham again!

This is an excellent store to pick up jamon, aceite de oliva and other regional Spanish products. It is centrally located, the shopkeeper is extremely patient and helpful, and the prices are not outrageous. You can find more affordable products elsewhere, but this place has superior quality.

This place was near my hotel and I was looking for cheese and wine for the end of my day. The gentleman who helped us was kind, patient, and went above and beyond so that we not only found what we were looking for but took out the products ready to eat/drink: he cut our bread into slices, opened our wine, suggested a local cheese. All of that with a smile in his face. Oh, how I wish people in NYC learned from this gentleman... Totally recommended. I'm eating the cheese and drinking the wine right now. Lovin'it!

We came across La Encina de Ortega as we were staying nearby at Casa de los Mozarabes. This place primarily caters to locals - it is open early but also closes early at 3pm. Seeing the delightful display on the window, we planned a morning to come by. In the mornings, all the other clientele were locals who would banter with Jose Maria, the proprietor. This establishment has a great selection of local food products - to try yourself or to bring home to share with friends. Jose Maria was very engaged and patient with us (despite our language barrier - we managed through charades and our broken guidebook Spanish). He is also very specific on what comes from Toledo or from other parts of Spain. We sampled the jamon he had on display (wonderful!!). They have a great selection of pates, jams, hams, olive oils, mazapan, chocolate bars. Since they are a one stop shop, they also have eggs, bread, homemade pasta, crackers and other staples. We were going back to the US and the best products to bring home would be the different types of local jams - fig, apple preserve … there are nice sampler packages that has several jams. We specifically got several of the one that is meant to be taken with cheeses (there are several varieties with another one packaged as a breakfast selection'). We also got boxes of mazapan and larger jars of the fig jam. They are all nicely packaged if you are opting to give as presents. The store has a lot to offer ranging from wine to jamon - and even sells interesting accessories such as a 'jamon case'. Like a tennis racquet cover case but instead of a tennis racquet, you put a leg of ham in there. We highly recommend. PS: We usually only review hotels/accommodations on TripAdvisor. We love this place so much that we decided to share feedback on TripAdvisor as it would mean a lot to Jose Maria.

Great food, great service, excellent recommendations and a genuinely friendly person that wants to help travelers discover all the great things Toledo has to offer! We were very happy customers, we went in three times in two days, not just for things for while we were there but specialty items to bring back home. Without Señor Ortega we never would have found the local micro brew or Crema Naranja.
