    The trip was very pleasant, travelling through beautiful countryside. The time in Toledo seemed a bit short, and we wished we had stayed in the town instead of going on the bus to the pre-arranged lunch. The food was not great and we would have enjoyed some free time in the town much more. The winery was a long way from anywhere, and the time there was too long. The stop at the factory was interesting.

    A must see for Toledo . Our tour guide was excellent and well versed in where we went , however it was difficult to hear him in the bus. The wine trip was well worth going to . A great day and so glad we went

    Tour was organized well and provided a comprehensive experience of the magnificent city of Toledo.Beatrice, our tour guide, was both knowledgeable and pleasant to be with on our all day excursion. Mateo, our tour driver, kept us safe and punctual on a very comfortable small-sized transport. Marie, the winery host, shared interesting insight into the wine making process and of course excellent wine!Lunch on our own in a local bar added authenticity to our memorable experience.

    A great day visiting a beautiful old city. So glad we took a guided tour as the meandering streets and alleyways would have been a challenge to maneuver on our own. A couple of hours was just perfect to see the city. The tour included a very nice traditional lunch which was outside of town. The winery was a half hour ride from there. Would probably opt to do something different. I guess I didn’t realize it was far from town and I’ve visited a winery before so the tour was very good but I’ve heard it before. Great guide. Taking the minibus was a good decision too.

    Great expirience. Very well organized!

    This is a really fun day. Enjoyed the tour of Toledo and the wine tasting. The optional lunch is a bit of a disaster. If you don't select the lunch, which i wouldn't recommend, they come back and get you in town. of course, we rushed to meet them and then they were late because group lunches take forever. I think they should just nix the lunch completely and let everyone go on their own or just explore the town more. Also, i didn't appreciate the factor tour where we were supposed to buy things.

    Nice Tour...Great Guide.

    great tour. Toledo was amazing, seeing and hearing about the history and the 3 cultures. The winery was fun, and really good wines. Bought some, and just bought some more in the distributor back in the states. well worth the tour.

    Tour guide was very knowledgeable. It's a lot of walking up and down hills so be prepared. I don't recommend purchasing the lunch, you will be better off getting lunch on your own

    Toledo is a easy and wonderful day trip from Madrid. We had a very small group only 3! so our tour through the city felt very personable. The coach that drove us was very nice. We especially enjoyed visiting the winery and could have spent more time there. We opted not to have the lunch, but ended up eating the provided lunch and paying for it on our own. The good part of this was that while driving up to the lunch location we stopped for some fabulous, picturesque views of Toledo which we would have missed otherwise. The lunch was only okay and part of us wishes we would have stayed to explore the town more rather than sitting down for a long lunch. Overall a recommended day trip!
