Attraction details
Reviewed 24 October 2016

I was really looking forward to the day trip in Toledo, but came away so disappointed, the theme park feel seems to have destroyed it's identity. From the first moment it felt like the place is geared to suck every last Euro out of the tourist market. I chose to walk up to the city centre, which had has an amazing view, but the steps stank of urine and there was litter everywhere. On close scrutiny you can feel the tangible history but so much of it has just been concreted over and very unsympathetically restored. Nevertheless, there were some nice moments to saviour, in particular the nature walk down by the river which has a great view of the city. Just a shame the local authorities haven't tried harder to preserve the authenticity.

Not a tour to do on a rainy day, great sights and views over the valley that tolado sits on top of. Recommend the panoramic train tour around the city, prepare for a bumpy ride though as it travels around old stone streets. Recommend you do the museums first, as they tend to close by 5pm if you doing the half day tour. Lots of great bars and cafes to check out as well as restaurants, not too pricy either. Only an hour south of Madrid itself so doesn't take long to get to, just remember to get down the bottom of escalators in good time where buses pick you up from (and drop off at start of day).

Nice walking tour to the heritage city & old capital of Spain. the painting in Temple tells about the history of place. Visit to art factory while returning is un-warranted

It started with a one-hour bus trip from Madrid to Toledo City. We took the half-day Toledo City tour. Just enough time to see the city through the uphill-downhill trek along their narrow streets. One will appreciate more the story of its landmarks with a guide. The history of Toledo is so rich and inspiring. The city lies on top of a hill so it has a fantastic view too. We were awed by the grand architecture of their churches. It's worth the sidetrip from Madrid.

The tram took us through the town of Toledo and I must say WOW! The view was breath taking and the river with a bridge and waterfall was eye candy. So serene and the town so intimate I want to go back. People are super friendly from the shops to the commute of people.
