We were 2 families, each with 1 teenager, that came in for a short tour of Toledo. We were very happy to meet Imna! who was our tour guide for a little over 3 hours. Her knowledge of the city was great. She told a story, along the way, emphasysing topics of interest to us. She was sensative to things which we wanted even if they were not in the plan. In general she was nice and kind and gave us a tour of the city that had a local advantage (hidden streets. Corners. Even under ground). Had a great time!
Marcy EttlingerUnited States
Inma was fabulous!!! Warm, friendly, knowledgeable, and filled with tons of interesting facts no matter where we went on our tour. Felt like we were walking around with a friend, rather than a formal tour guide. Highly, highly recommend seeing Toledo (incredible city!!!) and especially seeing it with Inma. Side note - we had planned on staying around for the rest of the day after using the morning on our tour, but it was not necessary. Ended up taking an earlier train back to Madrid right after lunch.

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!
Allen FlynnUnited States
We enjoyed an amazing and advice-filled tour, and are very pleased to have learned about the Jewish history of Toledo from Inma today. Her deep knowledge of the history of her home city, from its beginnings to the present, provides insight into the culture and evolution of this extraordinary place. Inma's directness recalling the perfidy and hostilities of the past leave us with a more realistic and human picture of Toledo's fragile periods of religious harmony and frightening periods of persecution.
Inma met us at the train station and from the very beginning we found her very engaging. We had a wonderful three hours listening to the history of Toledo primarily from a Jewish perspective, but also from a more wider perspective as well. Inma is delightful, incredibly knowledgeable and a pleasure to spend time with. Her knowledge is broad and her English, excellent. I would highly recommend Inma for those interested in this tour and beyond!
Clay C.United States
I arranged this tour to have Inma meet me at the train station and help me reach my hotel in the old city. She made the excellent suggestion to get a panoramic view of the city on the way. Once I checked in, she gave me a good overview of this remarkable place. We visited several of the important sites and she helped me plan what to see on my own the following day. This was the perfect introduction to Toledo and Inma is a fantastic guide. Gracias!
Nathan W.United States
Inma is a wonderful guide. Very knowledgeable about Toledo and it's history. We had such a fun time on our private tour, I would recommend her to anyone!
Marysusan B.United States
My husband and I toured Toledo with Inma. Though the day was grey, cold, and rainy, it didn't dampen her enthusiasm for guiding us around the town. She was cheerful, full of energy, and knowledgeable. Inma was very kind and understanding when we called her to tell her we were going to be an hour late, because I got mixed up with the train stations in Madrid and we went to the wrong one. One of the reasons we chose Inma was because she took the time to answer our questions before we booked the tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Marysusan. I really enjoyed meeting you. We had a good time together :)
Paul RUnited States
I can tell you that each and every one of the guides provided was wonderful. They were knowledgeable, friendly, punctual, patient, and every other positive attribute one might think of. We are not newcomers to the use of private guides, we have used them extensively in Italy, France and London. We know what makes a great guide. All of your guides were not just good, they were great.
Thomas H L.Stavanger, Norway
Fantastic tour guide. Great with the family. Knew her way around town and shared a ton of great information which we would otherwise not learned. Thanks so much.
Inma was wonderful. Unfortunately a rainy day in Toledo but this didn't dampen her enthusiasm! Inma began by asking us what we wanted to do specifically. A tour through the Army Museum was done efficiently with plenty of time for us to ask questions. Inma was a wealth of information and clearly knew her history of this amazing city. Inma met us at Toledo train station, she was personable and had a really brilliant knowledge of the city, highly recommended! Thank you Inma!
Ira RosensteinUnited States
Inma was an outstanding guide. Her affection and knowledge of Toledo made it a great day. She interacted well with all members of our family. She has a deep knowledge of history, architecture and art and was able to show us things that would have been inaccessible. Highly recommended and the Tours BY Locals platform is so easy to use.
James DoveUnited States
Inma met us at the train station from Madrid and from the first moment was a very warm and gracious hostess, giving us a great insider's view of Toledo. She really connected with us and quickly helped us see what makes Toledo such a special place. I highly recommend the taxi tour she suggests of Toledo as a precursor to the tour itself. It lends great perspective to the visit and offers a chance to take some amazing photos. Great day and I highly recommend Inma!
Robin H.United States
Michael GordonUnited States
Very professional and knowledgeable. Lovely time.
Steven MenakerUnited States
We frequently use Tours by Locals and are always satisfied by the guides. However, Inma is in a class by herself: she was energetic, personable, insightful, knowledgeable and accommodating. Her knowledge of the art in the Cathedral of Toledo made us wish she was available to guide is through the art museums of Toledo. We couldn't have been more pleased.
Steve GoldenUnited States
Inma is very friendly and extremely well informed. She is quite articulate and her English is excellent. She was right there waiting for us at the train station when we arrived, and she took the best care of us during the tour. We could not have asked for or hoped for a better guide. We give her our highest recommendation. Thank you to Inma! Steve and Marlene
Very interesting tour and she know what she is talking about��
Inma was professinal and had good knowledge. She was able to answer questions - and also showed her own opinions - and we liked that! A great and interesting day in Toledo!
Jean LyonsUnited States
We loved our tour with Inma. She is extremely knowledgeable about art history , knows how to make it come alive and did a great job customizing our tour to our interests. she was also extremely personable and engaging. We were very grateful for the messages she sent in advance of the tour with tips about seeing Toledo. An all-around great experience!
Barbara KrellCalgary, AB, Canada
Inma met us at the AVE railway station in Toledo as arranged, and was the perfect private guide for our group of 4. Highly knowledgeable and able to adjust to individual needs without any fuss at all. Highly recommended. Thank you Inma!
Michael CohenUnited States
Our guide - Inma S. - met us at our hotel lobby at the appointed time and, as we had previously emailed to communicate our time restrictions and the sites we were most interested in seeing, we were able to hit the ground running. Inma was personable and had a deep study of Spanish history. She was good at organizing the schedule to accommodate our requests, and our desire to linger and ask questions. It was as if we had become friends as we explored the old Juderia and talked about Spain and it's history.
Gail MautnerUnited States
We had the most wonderful day with Inma in Toledo. She is so knowledgeable about the history and culture of the place that we were able to really understand the different periods in Toledo's history. In 3 hours, Inma gave us a tour of the Jewish Quarter, the Cathedral, the main buildings, and the beauty of El Greco. She gave us more ideas for lunch and shopping in the area before we returned to Madrid. We are so glad to have met Inma - a truly lovely person.
Wayne LongcoreUnited States
Imma was amazing, personable and extremely knowledgeable. She seemed more like a good friend you were visiting in the city than a tour guide who knew everything and fit in with her guests.
Wayne LongcoreUnited States
Great tour and great tour guide. We have had many guides and she does an outstanding job, is knowledgeable, friendly and personable.
Inma is humble, helpful, genuine and friendly. Her respect to other religions and sects shows in her attitude. She didn't spare any efforts to make our visit memorable.
Amy S.United States
We loved Inma and her wonderful tour of Toldeo's Jewish Quarter. She was warm, bright, full of fascinating information and stories, and most impressive - she handled 3 tired and cranky 13 year olds unbelievably! If you have a chance to tour with Inma - take it! Worth every penny and every minute.
Kay DieckmannUnited States
Inma was such a professional and knowledgeable tour guide. Her English was great. She made the tour so enjoyable. We loved the fact that she was from Toledo and knew her history. She saved us time by skipping the lines at the attractions. She was so nice and made the tour so lively. I would definitely recommend Inma to tour you through the small streets of Toledo and she makes you feel like you were back in time with the rulers, artists , and people.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kay, I´m sorry to hear that you were involved in that terrible situation but happy to know that you are safe back home. It was a pleasure to meet you in Toledo. Thank you for comming!
Alexander HoffingerUnited States
We had a terrific tour of Toledo. Inma brings an exceptionally strong knowledge of art and architecture - her explanations in the Cathedral and of the El Greco masterpieces were highlights of the tour. She also brings a deep understanding of the cultural and political history of Toledo which was great. My two teenagers really liked the tour too!
Leslie KurtzUnited States
Inma was a wonderful guide to the city of Toledo. She was attentive to our preferences and let us guide our time. We also quickly realized that her experience and connections in the town were allowing us to see some "behind the scenes" sights. Incredible.
Richard SartiniUnited States
We would like to pass on how pleased we are with our tour with Inma. She was informative and accommodating. In the time allowed we were able to see the highlights of Toledo and learn so many things that we would never have known on our own. She is a lovely woman and I am sure will continue to provide excellent tours for visitors.
Gail S.United States
Imma was a amiable fantastic guide! Her command of the English language was superb. She has profound knowledge of the history of Toledo and the sites we visited, and shared it with us in an enjoyable way. She navigated us thru the Jewish quarter as well as other highlights of the city, with the best route to avoid the big tour groups. The memorable visit to the private "house of the jew" was a special treat, that most don't get to do. She even spent a little extra time with us, so much appreciated!
Imma is very knowledgeable about the history of Toledo. She adjusted the tour to our interests and pace. She took us to most interesting sites which are not part of the regular tours in Toledo. She is a very interesting and pleasant person who is punctual and well organised. In addition she advised us on an excellent restaurant for lunch. We would highly recommend Imma.
Paul BogaardsUnited States
Immi was terrific, knowledgeable, savvy about spots to avoid and ableto get us around with great effficiency during our half day. She also has keys that provide guests with secret access to places!
Kathy Bright NovickPalm Springs, CA, United States
In a was informed and gave an interesting tour. Additionally, she made late lunch reservations at a beautiful outdoor restaurant for us after our tour.
Martin RoffmanUnited States
Inma was pleasant, knowledgeable, and quite familiar with the subject matter of the tour. I strongly recommend her for anyone interested in learning about the Jewish community of Toledo that existed 500-600 years ago that was unfortunately eradicated by pogroms, unbridled hatred, and ultimately, the Inquisition.
Barbara SanchezUnited States
This was a wonderful experience. Inman was knowledgeable, flexible and we saw an amazing number of sites in a short amount of time, I would definitely book a tour with Inma again without any hesitation.
Kelly HaberUnited States
Inma was delightful to be with and very well informed about her city. We enjoyed learning about the history of Toledo and what it's like to live there now. We did not have an agenda for our visit, and Inma was able to give us a very personalized and chock full experience. I had been concerned that 3 hours might not be enough time, but felt very satisfied at its conclusion. Inma's advice was helpful and accurate. She really knows her city!
We have only words of praise for Inma. She knows history, is very well informed, has opinions that lead to stimulating discussions, plus is flexible regarding tour interests, gracious and relaxed. What more can one want in a guide?
Eric FreemanUnited States
Fantastic tour and well worth it!
Erin HoppeUnited States
Inma was so great! She was nice and informative..wantes to make sure we saw what we wanted to see. If we were interested in stopping aomewhere we could but we just let her lead the way. We had a great time and saved time by getting right where we needed to fo. If we were on our own, it could have beeen a vwey long day! I highky reccomend her if you are going to Toledo!!
We are a family of frequent travelers around the globe and have had mixed experiences with tours and tour guides. Inma was a lovely person and a great private tour guide with lots of local and historical knowledge. She made our half day experience interesting and enjoyable even by our children (who are harsh critics). She was flexible in addressing our needs and special requests, and helpful with suggestions for the remainder of our trip. Highly recomended.
Tiffany VolpeUnited States
Such an amazing city! Very large and lots to see but Inma took us to just about everything. She really knows the history of the city. Absolutely wonderful with children and very accommodating to your needs and preference on sights to see!
Alan SchapiroUnited States
Inma was everything we could have hoped for in a tour guide. We visited Toledo with our two teenage children and were concerned that a 3-hour tour would be overwhelming. Inma immediately asked exactly how much detail we wanted from the tour vs. visiting more sites. She even rearranged the tour based on weather conditions. The result was a fantastic tour that exceeded our expectations. Inma was funny,informative, tireless and even directed us on where to eat and shop. You won't go wrong hiring Inma.
Jill BachUnited States
Inma is an excellent tour guide. She is prompt and makes sure that you maximize the time you have with her. We loved Toledo and wish we had more time to spend there!
Lynda GordonUnited States
Imma was an amazing tour guide - Her knowledge of Toledo and her excitement as she spoke made our tour one of the best we had while away. I have never used this web site before but having a tour with someone that grew up in Toledo only added to our experience. I would highly recommend Imma.
Jack McElroyUnited States
Inma led us on a wonderful day tour of Toledo. Saw all the highlights and more. Highly recommended.
Laura WeissmanUnited States
We can't recommend Inma highly enough. She is a wonderful guide whose roots are in Toledo. She is wonderfully sweet and so patient with our elderly parents, treating them as if they were her own family. She took great care to focus our tour on our interests. She speaks English fluently and made the whole experience informative and enjoyable. She knows the city as only a true local could
Richard FrederickUnited States
My wife and I are very happy we chose to take a side trip from Madrid and hire a private guide to reveal Toledo to us. Inma was our guide, and we loved her approach to showing the city to us. We took a cab ride around the city and we went to the major attractions in the city. She effectively related the history of Spain and Toledo. She is relaxed, competent, and friendly. When asked for a restaurant recommendation, she guided us to one that may have been our best experience in all of Spain. Wonderful!
Barbara LarsenUnited States
Our tour of Toledo with Inma was superb. The depth and breadth of her knowledge of places in Toledo, political history, cultural history, religious history, and art enabled her to tune what she shared on the fly as our interests were revealed. A great way to see the city!
Phyllis KalowskiUnited States
Inma was a wonderful guide. She was very professional and personable. Her knowledge was in depth and she made the information clear and interesting. Her English is very fluent. She added a great deal to our visit!
Inma was very easy to work with on this tour. She met us at the train station and provided a taxi tour overview before we began our working tour. Inma was very knowledgeable of the history of Toledo and was most helpful in understanding and appreciating the three cultures. Her knowledge of art and art history was amazing. She made recommendations, but did not force choices on us which was just great. She offered several lunch suggestions. I highly recommend this delightful tour guide - Inma.
Fred ShulmanUnited States
On short notice we engaged Inma for our Toledo tour. She met us at the train station and arranged a car for a panoramic tour before walking the city. Inma is a very knowledgeable guide whose roots are right in Toledo. She was perfect as she took us to all the points of interest we wanted to see plus the ones she felt were not to be missed. She is sweet , easy to understand and a pleasure. Highly recommended !
Julie SeitzmanUnited States
Wow! What a great tour we had. Inma was delightful and super knowledgeable. She has a great view of Art History, Religion, Spanish History and Toledo's history. She took us to a lovely restaurant for lunch and suggested an amazing restaurant for the next day. We went there. It was just as she described. We would not hesitate to recommend her. When we return to Toledo we will tour with her again.
Ursula BlancoCosta Rica

ALL 9 OF US RATED THE TOUR 5/5 Inma's knowledge of everything about the history and the geography of the city was amazing as only a local can know THIS MUCH.

Jeffrey MarcusUnited States
Inma amazed me with her in depth knowledge and compassion of the tour that she designed for my requests.
Norman K.United States
Inma S. is a guide as full of information and historic and artistic expertise as she is charming and energetic. It was a privilege to have her company, and her enthusiasm was absolutely contagious. We are three couples,close friends who have traveled together for decades. We rarely encounter a guide with more knowledge and preparation than we bring to the sites we tour. Inma was that rare exception. We have made a friend in Spain. I give her my highest personal and professional recommendation.
Inma was a wonderful guide in Toledo. Her knowledge is deep and she shows great respect and empathy for the three great religions that served as the cultural foundation of the city. Inma was born and raised in Teledo so she provides an insiders perspective on this beautiful and historically significant place.

Marjorie GorodkoUnited States
Toledo is a fascinating city...and Inma was the perfect guide to show this beautiful, historic city to us. We asked to see some specific places and she made sure we saw all of them.Our original plan was to meet her at 1 of the bridges, since we were going to take a Hop On Hop Off bus around the city. She was so concerned that we would miss each other, she met us at the train station.Her knowledge of the city is extensive and she joyfully shares it with you.I recommend her & the company w/o reservation.
Elliot KeyneUnited States
Imma S. is a great tour guide. Her knowledge of history is very deep and therefore she could tell us about about the events and people that surrounded the historical sites we visited.
