Great tour - especially the vantage point that was first approached by bus with a great view of Toledo was a highlight. And a visit to the cathedral is an absolute must - without our great guide we probably wouldn't have gone in on our own.

Our guide Rafa (fund and tickets) was wondeful. Always kind and humorful. He has good knowledge about Toledo which helped us to enjoy the visit a lot! Highly recommended.
