Discover the "City of the Three Cultures"! Located 70 km away from Madrid is Toledo, a beautiful city-museum declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO. It is one of the oldest towns in Europe and has a great artistic beauty and buildings from almost all periods in history (Arabian, Gothic, Mudejar, Renaissance and Baroque style).

Description

Discover Toledo, one of the oldest towns in Europe with a great artistic beauty and buildings from almost all periods in history (Arabian, Gothic, Mudéjar, Renaissance and Baroque style). Toledo is called the “City of the Three Cultures”, since Christians, Muslims and Jews lived together.

Upon arrival, we will start with a panoramic walking tour of Toledo, entering the old quarters to visit the Plaza del Ayuntamiento, and admire the facade of the impressive Primate Cathedral, the old Palace of Justice and the City Hall.

We will explore the beautiful Church of St. Tomé*, with the very famous painting of El Greco "The Burial of Count Orgaz".

During the morning tour, you will get to discover the Home-Museum of El Greco**, as in the XVI century Toledo was the place of residence of this great painter, as well as the Convent of Santo Domingo El Antiguo, where he was buried.

During the afternoon tour, we will visit the Synagogue of Santa Maria la Blanca as well as the beautiful Mosque of El Cristo de la Luz.

Finally, we will visit a typical factory of Damasquino, where you can enjoy a demonstration of the making of this well known handicraft art of Toledo (incrustation of precious metals in steel)!

*The Church of Santo Tomé might be substituted by the Monastery of San Juan de los Reyes.

**The Home-Museum of El Greco might be substituted by the Hospital Tavera Museum that houses an important collection of masterpieces of El Greco.

The tour was well done, we enjoyed it. Tour guide was great in translating to all the languages for the guests. Loved that we also got to go to a factory where the inlaid work happened and had a gift shop.

Short, on The run, but one thing is for shure: we did not get tired!

Sara

We are liked the attitude of the operations team at Julia travel office and appreciate them for accommodating us inspite of we bei...ng late by 5 mins. As for the tour, it was fully packed and each minute of the guided at Taledo was utilised. It did meet our expectations. Just a small feedback to the Guide - Perhaps he could be a little more considerate towards people with infant and carts. Information about the accessibility around the visit areas interms of cart friendly could have been provided to the visitors. Having said, the guide was well verse with the historic significance of all the places he covered during the visit. Just a suggestion to the agency - perhaps the tours can be in only one language i.e. English. Mixing languages does drop some efficiency I believe. We definitely recommend this tour to all the travelers without infants. more

We were a group of 5 friends in our late forties. We all thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Toledo is magnificent and we all highly reco...mmend the tour. One caveat, the shop for damasquinados at the end of the tour is more expensive than that of the first stop. more

We enjoyed our tour. The city is beautiful and you could probably spend days exploring. Our only concers we're that while our... guide spoke English his accent made it a little difficult to understand and it seemed as though the English information was less that that in Spanish. more

Mary Ann

This was an excursion I had wanted to do for some time. Due to other circumstances I had to cut it short. The first problem was th...e tour leaving without me. I didn't hear anything as I stood at the office and waited for over an hour. Obviously the guide didn't conduct a head count and to compound it all I had received my ticket from the office only 30 minutes beforehand. Thanks a lot! Eventually, I caught up on the full day tour bus and transferred at the cafe the buses use for their toilet break. Toledo is drenched in history stretching back to the Romans, so I was a little annoyed when the guide spent so much time on what miracles had been performed. Really? Nevertheless, the visit to the craft shop was worthwhile and the visit was still relatively informative overall. more

Andy Wallace

We booked the afternoon tour because the departure time was very convenient to us. We had the feeling that we booked an English sp...eaking tour and from the very beginning we realized that the tour was first is Spanish and then in English. We didn't like this option at all, because we dint knew it before. Our guide was a tired lady who used to give more information in Spanish for the Spanish audience and then some of the previous information in English. Her accent was Spanish accent and many times was really difficult for us ( and to other English speaking people) to understand what she said. At the end we spent a lot of time to visit a tourist shop, instead an inside visit of the Toledo Cathedral or Greco museum. more
