Toledo by high speed train with private guide
Successively a Roman municipium, the capital of the Visigothic Kingdom, a fortress of the Emirate of Cordoba, an outpost of the Christian kingdoms fighting the Moors and, in the 16th century, the temporary seat of supreme power under Charles V, Toledo is the repository of more than 2, 000 years of history. Nowadays, a World Heritage Site by Unesco, its masterpieces are the product of heterogeneous civilizations in an environment where the existence of three major religions - Judaism, Christianity and Islam - was a major factor.
BETTER NOT TO GO ON SUNDAY AS THE CATHEDRAL DOES NOT OPEN TILL 2 PM
We will meet at Atocha Railway Station or in your hotel/apartment if you prefer. The train only takes 25 minutes!
Once in Toledo, we will take a taxi to enjoy a sightseeing tour of Toledo to see the views of the old city. Then, we will get into the old center and will walk through the narrow streets to visit the Cathedral, explore the former Jewish Quarter and Santa Maria la Blanca Synagogue.
These are the highlights of Toledo. However, along the way, we might see other things like the Santo Tome Church where El Greco's masterpiece is, El Transito Synagogue or San Juan de los Reyes Church.
After lunch, we will pick up the train to come back to Madrid. Usually, we are back around 4 pm.

Communication was prompt & courteous. Nani was very flexible with our plans. She helped us purchase tickets and make restaurant reservations. We had 3 generations travelling together but she tried to engage everyone & pace the tour accordingly as we have 2 seniors who cannot walk long. We would not hesitate to recommend her.
