Christian, jewish and muslim architecture, legends, art, history, gastronomy and shopping.
At just 71 km from Madrid lies Toledo, World Heritage City since 1986. Built over seven hills by diferent cultures along more than 2500 years and surrounded by the river Tagus, Toledo offers you impresive views and a wide list of experiences for all your senses.
Allow me to show you why romans, visigoths, muslims, jews and christians selected this privileged site to live and to fight for it till death. Follow me inside the Primary Gothic Cathedral, the precious "Mudejar" Synagogues, the 1000 years old Mosque, and the Greco masterpices.
Walk with me through the main shopping areas full of swords, ceramics, marzipan sweets and damascene works.
Walking tour inside the old town, east to west, visiting the main monuments of your choice (cathedral, synagogue, mosque, Greco paintings)and the shopping areas.
Please notice that the number of monuments we can visit in 3 hours depends directly on you. We can visit more if we do it faster or less if you prefer to walk quietly and have some breaks.

We had an amazing tour of Toledo with Inma! She worked with us to show us things of interest not only to us but to our 8 and 9 year old children. She guided us through the city's history and hidden secrets with humor and excitement. We all agreed the highlight was climbing the city walls! She emailed with me in the months leading up to our trip to help us decide how best to use our time. Our morning with Inma was one of the highlights of our entire journey to Spain!
