This was so confusing. We were put on a bus with people that were doing 4 different tours. There was a group with a half day tour, whole day tour, going to Segvoia and then we were doing whole day with train by ourselves. We had no idea when we were supposed to leave or where to get train. We never did take train so weren't even able to do it. Carlos was a terrible guide. It felt like he hated his job and we were a bother.
I loved seeing Toledo, but VPT tours was poorly organized. Tour coordinators did not have a point of check-in when you arrived. The were not sure which bus to assign you to and sadly, I witnessed three people unable to join the tour because the bus was full. The tour was suppose to be bilingual English/Spanish. For every few sentences of description in Spanish, we heard one sentence in English. They mixed the full day tour with the half day tour. We were on the half day tour. If you were on the half day tour you only got to see exterior points of interest and had to pay extra for admission. Were also suppose to have access to the Toledo Train but were never given directions or tickets to access the train. Toledo was beautiful. We learned more by taking the hop on- hop off bus tour after our half day tour concluded. VPT tour was a glorified bus ride to Toledo. Next time I will go to Toledo by train on my own and do the hop on-hop off bus.
Toledo is wonderful, and I liked the "on your own" part, however we lost about 30 minutes with a late bus.
Very disorganized. Several buses waiting to figure out which one is taking what group of people. On the way back the driver wouldn’t allow us back on the bus even though we came on time and it was very hot outside until the “leader”, who was late, arrived.
The amplifier that our guide wore did not help at all! When she is in the lead down a narrow, winding cobblestone street and it is amplifying in front of her and we are strung out behind her, we could not hear a word she was saying. The torrential rain wouldn't have dampened our spirits if we could have heard any of her commentary. Instead of riding the train and continuing to get soaked, we opted for the earlier return on the bus.
The tour was great. Toledo is great place to visit. The train was eh...a touristy train. Could have skipped that part.
I recommend this trip. We were not picked up at the hotel, but the departure location was a 5-minute walk from our hotel, so it was not a problem. The bus left on time. Maria, our tour guide, was very informative and spoke of the history of Toledo on the way there. The ride is only 1 hour from Madrid by bus. Once we were there, Maria guided us to the escalators that took us to the top of the city from where the bus dropped us off, and trust me, the escalator is necessary as the city is perched on top of a steep hill. After walking half of the city with the Maria, we split off because we had the Toledo on your own tour and headed to tour the cathedral on our own. After we had linch and took the trolly/train ride that was included in our tour price. The trolly is really only good to get a great view of Toledo from a great vantage point across the river, but had it been a separate charge, probably would not have been worth it.
If I have one complaint it is that we were under the impression that there would be a 4:30pm return bus to Madrid and there wasn't. Our options were 1pm or 7pm and this was not particularly clear when booking. However, we made the best of it and opted for the later bus.
Overall, it was a splendid day trip and worth the time.
Hassle free tour. Excellent guide. Must to do for anyone visiting Madrid.
Rather than mentioning Little bit of walking is required, disclaimer should be Little bit of walking uphill is required.
Bus picked us up at our Hotel to join the main bus leaving Madrid. We made a stop before entering Toledo, large souvenier shop with WC's - possibly 15mins. Upon reaching Toledo our guide brought us from the Bus Park up into the city via the escalator and we had a short guided tour to the main square, a bonus for us as we were not expecting this. Tourist train in Toledo an absolute must, sit on the right hand side I would suggest for photos We took the option of the 4.30pm bus back into Madrid. Absolutely value for money and Toledo is a beautiful walled city
Toledo is simply amazing...never had hoped to see such a place...i chose Toledo your own way and it was good -- not too tiring
