Toledo Half-Day Tour from Madrid

Depart Madrid for the medieval city of Toledo, picturesquely located on the banks of the River Tagus. The half-day tour provides a full introduction to the historic city, wandering winding streets to monuments that reveal its fascinating past.

Start with a panoramic walking tour of the old quarters, and visit the Plaza del Ayuntamiento to see the magnificent façade of the Primate Cathedral of Saint Mary, the old Palace of Justice, and Toledo City Hall.

Continue through the former Jewish Quarter, wandering the narrow streets to the Church of St. Tomé, location of El Greco’s famous painting, “The Burial of Count Orgaz.” Visit the old Synagogue of Ste. Maria la Blanca, which remains as a symbol of the co-existence of Toledo’s “3 Cultures.”

Marvel at the Monastery of San Juan de los Reyes, built by the Catholic Monarchs in the 15th century. See the former Mosque of Cristo de la Luz, the last of 10 mosques that once stood in the city in the days of the Moors.

Enjoy panoramic views of the river from the Museo Victorio Macho, where you can also see works by the famous sculptor and watch a short audiovisual movie about Toledo. End with a visit to a typical Damasquino (Damascene) factory to see the precious jewelry perfected by the Arabs and brought to Spain by the Moors.

intéressant
Tolède est une très belle ville, il ne faut absolument pas rater l'occasion pour aller la voir mais le prix est cher par rapport aux activités : transfert + guide. Merci

Tour in Englisch gebucht. 45 Teilnehmer, davon 4 englischsprachig
Für eine 5-Std-Tour standen für Toledo nur 1,5 Std zur Verfügung. Tour begann verspätet. Vor Toledo technische Pause -OK- aus 15 Min wurden mehr als 30. Eigentliche Führung begann 17:00 Uhr, Ende 18:25 Uhr. Viel zu wenig für diese herrliche Stadt ! Bei der Menge der Teilnehmer nur schlechtes vorwärts kommen. Außer St Thomae zur Besichtigung des El Greco Bildes und der Synagoge keine Kirche oder anderes Gebäude besucht. Kathedrale nur im Vorbeigehen. Von der imposanten Stadt nur einen winzigen Bruchteil gesehen. Auf die Verkaufsschau auf der Rückfahrt kann verzichtet werden. Fazit: Nicht noch einmal solch eine überfüllte Tour mit extrem wenig Zeit für das Eigentliche. Schade !!!!!!!! Reiseleiterin trifft keine Schuld, sie versuchte diesen unmöglichen Spagat zwischen Englisch und Spanisch zu beherrschen.

Sehr schöner Ausflug
Alles in allem war der Ausflug sehr schön, zwar hätte man sich meines Erachtens die Verkaufsveranstaltung am Ende der Tour sparen können, und die Zeit lieber in Toledo verbringen können. Der ein oder andere Fand die angebotenen Schmuckstücke jedoch sehr reizvoll.

Una vista rápida por Toledo
Toledo es maravilloso. En mi opinión las visitas son demasiado rápidas, apenas tienes tiempo de sacar fotografías. La guía conoce muy bien el relato del lugar. Los días lunes la catedral está cerrada. La salida y el regreso son puntuales y no tienes tiempo extra de hacer algo por cuenta propia.
