Know More about this tour

Start your private tour with a pickup from your central Madrid hotel and travel southwest to Toledo – an ancient UNESCO-listed city that is often considered as the spiritual capital of Spain. How you get there, how you see it and how long you spend there is up to you; choose from five different options, either seeing the sights with a guide (as detailed below) or simply making use of your private driver to see Toledo at your own pace. All entrance fees and meals are at your own expense.

5-Hour Tour: Driver and Guide
Head to Toledo by air-conditioned minibus or minivan, and as you travel, your guide will chat to you about the ancient city and its countless attractions. The journey takes roughly an hour, leaving you with a good three hours in town to see the city highlights. Many attractions are clustered around the Old Town, so head there first to see Catedral de Toledo – a Mujedar and Renaissance building that represents the heart of Catholic Spain. Stop for pictures outside and learn of its impressive 13th-century history. Continue to Sinagoga del Tránsito – a synagogue that was built at a time when Jewish houses of worship were banned in Christian Spain – and hear tales of the different religions that left their mark on the city.

After stopping for lunch, visit Museo del Greco to see the home of Spanish Renaissance artist El Greco, admiring artifacts that once inspired the painter, and then perhaps visit Museo Sefardi to see a collection of traditional costumes worn by Toledo’s Sephardic Jews. Finish with a stroll around the old Jewish quarter before returning to Madrid.

8-Hour Tour: Driver and Guide
Visit Toledo by minibus or minivan, enjoying roughly five hours in the city for a more in-depth look at its highlights. Spend longer at each of the sites included in the 5-hour itinerary, or choose to see more sites instead! Pay a visit to Mezquita de Cristo de la Luz, a glorious 10th-centuy mosque that was later converted to a church, or perhaps check out the Alcázar – Toldeo’s medieval fortress that looms over the city. Get your camera ready to capture photo-snapping views!

8-Hour Tour: Train and Guide
Travel from Madrid Atocha Station to Toledo by high speed train . Cutting the journey time by half an hour, this option enables you to spend the most time in Toledo itself. Explore the city by foot and spend longer at each of the sites, enjoying lengthier explanations of the key attractions from your guide. Alternatively, take a more leisurely lunch break -- just as the locals do! Please note: Guide will be available for 3 or 5 hours.

  • Excellent private guide and comfortable/spacious van transport for a party of 7. A very worthwhile day trip from Madrid.

  • Great tour make sure your guide stops the taxi by the bridge to the Jewish Quart for a great photo opportunity. It does get crowded with tourists, but you can backtrack by side streets back towards Jewish Quarter and avoid the crowds. Our guide was excellent and we had her for ourselves that day.

  • Outstanding

  • Very interesting day trip .. The guide Carmen and the driver were very polite and smarts.

  • Wonderful trip to Toledo

  • My family of five had a wonderful time on our day trip to Toledo. Driver was on time, friendly and helpful. Our tour guide spoke excellent English and was very knowledgeable about the area! Thank you for a terrific tour of the city of Toledo! We wouldn't have missed it and would happily recommend this tour to other travelers!!!

  • We enjoyed this tour -- our guide, Juan, was extremely knowledgeable and gave us the history of Toledo in the context of the history of Spain. We would never have known what to see and there's quite a bit here -- from amazing cathedrals to El Greco's home. There is a fair amount of walking up hills and around charming side streets so wear comfortable shoes.

  • This was a great tour -- our guide was incredibly knowledgable and we had a great time with her. The train ride was fun and we were able to have some free time on our own after finishing the guided part of the tour. We had a little communication problem regarding our tickets and their delivery, but were able to work it out and appreciated that Viator didn't let us down. Everything went very smooth after that and we would certainly use Viator again. We were so pleased with the quality of the guide. We actually ran into her the next day at the Prado while she was leading another tour!

  • Toledo is such a beauitfull city and worthwhile visit and spending more than a half day in it,
    the our was great, the guide knew her city and she was sweet and friendly

  • Our guide gave us a panoramic tour first then took us throughout Toledo. She was very informative and made learning about the history of the area very interesting. It was a beautiful city with a rich history
