I was lucky to be born in Toledo in 1974; I grew up here and I fell in love with my city. I studied humanities here, and I got my degree in 1996. I have worked as a restorer of fine arts, especially painting. For more than 15 years I have worked as a guard in the main museum of fine arts in the city. So, art and History are part of me; even my friends say that I look like a character from a painting by El Greco. I live in the old town, close to the cathedral.
I became an Official Tourist Guide in 2007, and since then I have not stopped working, but I have not stopped studying, researching and designing visits for all types of travelers. I have all the licenses and local permits to access the more than 100 monuments of this incredible city. Walking through the streets of Toledo, or going into its historic buildings is like going back in time, and a truly unforgettable experience. What better way to enjoy Toledo than with a local guide.
Apart from being an art and beauty lover, I also paint and am an amateur actor in theatrical companies and cultural groups. This helps me to be a good storyteller and to transmit my love and my passion for Toledo to all these travelers who want to feel the essence of this magical city. Come with me and enjoy this real time machine; I can adapt to all your needs, so your stay in Toledo will be really profitable.
A Recent Review of this guide
We highly recommend spending a few hours with Vidal. We've hired many guides in other countries, but Vidal was by far the best guide yet. He met us at the train station, where we started with a taxi ride to view the town from afar, then toured by foot throughout the town. His vast knowledge of both history and art was very evident and greatly appreciated. Anyone planning on visiting Toledo should definitely book with Vidal.
I am official tour guide in Toledo city and its province.
I have a degree in Humanities by UCLM University.
- I have a small car that I can drive through the old town, and it can fit up to 3 people comfortably. Please inquire for larger groups
