Tour Reviews
Neil (UK) - Toledo Day Tour: In short it was excellent! The coach arrived in good time and was very comfortable - the driver was very good too. Our guide, Matilde, was superb. She assessed our needs and wishes then produced an itinerary which was varied and comprehensive without being too tiring - after all we are all retired and a few of us over 80 years old. I make the above comments not just as a client and passenger but also as someone who spent the greater part of his professional life organising transport and group travel. Our day in Toledo was one of the highlights of our short break in Spain. Thanks to all those who contributed to its success.

Rolf (SE) - Toledo Day Tour and Madrid Historical Walking Tour:
We are back home in Sweden again and I just want to let you know how pleased we are with service provided by you. Carmen was a very nice person, filled up with knowledge. She is a superb guide. She gave us interesting and useful information and made Madrid and its sights and history very attractive to us. After the Walking Tour we were extremely glad to learn that Carmen would join us again for the Toledo excursion day. It was indeed a very exciting and sunny day. Thank you for your cooperation and I wish you all the best in the future.

Carla (US) – Toledo Day Trip:
I was very satisfied with the recent day tour that I took with a group of students from Texas. The tour guide, Carmen, was very pleasant and knowledgeable. The bus driver was also very friendly and helpful; he was gracious enough to take a picture of our group from the lookout area. I like the fact that the tour began with a panoramic view of the city. This is very helpful for giving the students an idea of what the city is like. It is also reminiscent of the “Vista de Toledo” work by El Greco. My students absolutely loved Toledo! I appreciate the fact that you allowed us to have an extra hour without additional charge! (One of our students was in a wheel chair which slowed down the tour a little.) This gave the students time to shop and explore a little on their own. I would DEFINITELY book another tour with Madrid Tours & Travel.

Marli (ZA) – Toledo Day Tour:
We enjoyed our tour immensely. We visited Toledo with Angela The trip from Madrid to Toledo was in a comfortable air conditioned micro bus. Toledo was a very interesting city to visit. Angela was very friendly and showed us all the sites. She also showed us places that interest us. Her English was very good and we enjoyed the restaurant she recommended for lunch. We would recommend this for someone visiting Spain.

Alan (US) – Madrid City Tour & Toledo Tour:
It is my pleasure to report back to you that our guide (our Toledo and Madrid City tour guide) was a complete joy to work with. She was knowledgeable and passionate about her subject, but more to the point, she was able to gauge quite remarkably the interest levels of the university students, focusing on certain topics and letting others go for the good of the students. This is a truly welcome feat. I have hired many tour guides in the past, but you have a gem here - one who might have a laundry list of topics to go thru but one who balances those in a sensitive manner with the interests of the clients. One last item. As you can tell, she dealt quite positively with the students. She also was very open to my suggestions and my questions. Again, the entire experience was a great educational experience and I would be happy to use your services again on my next trip to Spain.
