We are deeply grateful for the time Vidal took to give us such a fascinating tour of Toledo! We learned so much from him regarding quite a few topics that we would not have otherwise understood or perhaps noticed about our surroundings (architecture, art, history, cultural relations and exchange). Because of Vidal's insights and expertise, we definitely feel that we were able to obtain a much greater appreciation for our visit and time spent in this very special city. We hope to visit again someday!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Lyn and Austin for your kind words. It was a real pleasure to show you my city; and I am very happy to hear from you that it was a great experience. I hope that your Spanish trip had been really special with other Tours by Local guides. Aloha!

We had a GREAT tour with Vidal! We have 3 children, ages 4, 6 and 8 and ahead of time asked Vidal if he could tailor our tour to them. He said he would and did a wonderful job leading our family around Toledo. His knowledge of history, religion, and the city of Toledo are very impressive, and he is easy to act with interpersonally. He helped our kids re-imagine what life was like in Toledo throughout the centuries and we had so much fun. We highly recommend using Vidal.
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.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks for your kind words, Deb. It was a real pleasure to show you and your family the wonders of my city. It is fantastic that you have appreciate the tour. I wish you a very pleasant trip in Spain, and enjoy the cities with other Tours by Local guides.

Insightful, thorough, lively, engaging, kind … just a few of the adjectives to describe our tour with Vidal, who paced things so well that we were constantly seeing and learning things and enjoying it the whole time! Vidal did not just recite historical facts and numbers; he was actually telling us a very compelling story, with thoughtful insights to help us consider the meaning and context of what we were seeing. Thank you so much, Vidal, for helping us "see" and appreciate your amazing city!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Phuong and Aminah. I have no words to describe how I am feeling with your words. It was a really pleasant experience to see how behind monuments there are lots of stories, and how much we can learn from the past. I am really glad with your rating and best of all with your toledan experience. Best regards and continue your experiences in Spain with other Tours by Locals! Vidal

We had booked the tour a couple of months in advance and a few days prior to the tour the local tour guide became ill. Tours By Locals did an excellent job to find an alternate guide, Vidal, within 24 hours. Vidal was excellent, thorough, and had a deep understanding of the Jewish history in Toledo. His English was easy to understand and his knowledge allowed us to appreciate even more the history of this beautiful city. We recommend this tour for anyone with limited time in Toledo.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your comment and your rating, mr Martin! It was a pleasure going with you and your family and show the wonders of our wonderful Jewish Quarter. Have an incredible trip in Spain and enjoy it with the other guides from Tours by Locals!
