This was a really fun way to explore Toledo with my husband. The clues were just tricky enough and we felt very accomplished when we figured them out! An interesting storyline as well. I wish there was a little more general history included and maybe audio or video recording because it was a lot of reading but all in all would recommend!!

We were in Toledo on August 14th, apart from the heat everything went beautifully. The meeting point was easy to find. As soon as we arrived in Toledo the guide (Jesus) immediately told us about the city and then arrived at a panoramic point (5 minutes for photos). We then entered the city center. Jesus accompanied us explaining the history of the places of Toledo (about 1 hour and a half). Too bad for the free time (too little to be able to see everything). Overall, however, we were very satisfied. Driving was the highlight. Do not miss the synagogue and the monastery with the bracelet
Nice guide but the monument selection omission of best monuments included on the paid bracelet were disappointing Every body in the tour wants to see the cathedral and el Greco museum but this wan not included
Good tour and very good guide. Calculate the times well because Toledo deserves to be visited carefully so take a whole day to visit it.
Transport on time. Very competent guide. A very nice excursion. I recommend.
very satisfied, only downside that there is no guide in French.
