Mayte was quite wonderful as a guide and made sure that the excursion matched the interest and stamina of her clients. Most importantly, she was perfect in her communications to teach and inform, all without sounding like a travel brochure. We felt that the tour was fact-filled, but with the valid perspectives that helped to humanize the perspective. Highly recommended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Judy and Andy thanks a lot for your review.... hopefully we will meet again in your next trip to Spain.

Mayte was great during our recent visit to Spain. We had our two year old with us, which can make things hectic in terms of staying on schedule. She was very patient with us and our daughter. She was very informative and gave us many tips which we used during the rest of our trip. Highly recommended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Un fuerte abrazo para toda la familia. Mayte

Mayte was our guide to the fabulous city of Toledo! She was very professional, prompt, and paced our day perfectly. We so appreciated that she purchased our train tickets and picked a place for lunch that had local specialties. Her narratives and talking points relating to the artworks that we saw really made our day complete!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your kind words! I will remember you when ever I cross a "gentle pacer". ;)

Mayte was a jewel. She knew her way around both Marid and Toledo like the native she is. We traveled by Metro and Train to Toledo and she showed us the history and wonders of that former capitol of Spain. Mayte met us at our hotel and took care of us like family and made our tour something we will never forget. Mayte also encouraged us to customize our tour, for example we wanted to not do the ABC (another bloody church) tour but she did encourge us to see the Cathedral and one other church, rightfully so

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I had a really great time with you. I hope to see you back soon

We booked a private tour with Mayte from Madrid to Toledo for our family of 5 including my 79 year old mother. She could not have been more wonderful! She made the booking process extremely easy and her communication was excellent. She pre-purchased our train tickets and even met us at the apartment we were staying at in Puerto Del Sol. The day was extremely well organized and Mayte was incredibly knowlegdeable about Spanish history as well as the city of Toledo. We could not be happier with our day

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your comments! I am happy to read that you enjoy the tour. Next time with the third generation of the family

Mayte led us on an energetic and very informative tour of Toledo. Despite poor weather conditions she asked us if we wanted have the more intensive tour that required more exposure to the elements. She led us on an extraordinarily informative and exciting tour of this historic city. The education we received was as good as any walking tour with a professor. We arrived back in Madrid a bit wet but much better off for having had our tour of Toledo with Mayte.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am flattered by your nice comment. Thanks , I had a great time with you.

Mayte was terrific as our guide in Toledo. From the early morning pickup to the end of the day it was an informative and enjoyable day of sightseeing. From the train tickets to the itinerary Mayte organized it all. After a taxi ride to a viewpoint overlooking the city, we walked the entire town of Toledo. We saw it all and had a history lesson to go with the tour. Mayte was both personable and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend her to visitors to the Madrid area.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Sheila and George,many thanks for your nice comment, I enjoyed sharing the day with you. Best regards.Mayte

Mayte was an outstanding tour guide for our trip to Toledo. Even before the trip she suggested our group of 10 rent a mini bus, which cost about the same as taking the train, but allowing us much more flexibility. In the city, her knowledge and explanations were outstanding. This was my third trip to Toledo, and there were so many things we saw that were missed in the past, thanks to her knowledge of the city, and historical explanations. She also tailored the tour to meet in the interest of the group.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind comment :)

Mayte was very knowledgable and took us to areas in Toledo where the crowds were not. Her knowledge of the history and the different cultures of Toledo made the tour very rich and satisfying. We loved walking through the back streets and the views of the city were gorgeous. Highly recommend this tour and Mayte!

Toledo is not to be missed if you are in Madrid... We had a great experience taking the high speed train, then walking the walled city with Mayte. There is so much history here and so much to see. The cathedral is astonishing and especially the art inside (El Grecco) which Mayte explained to us in detail. Mayte is so well versed in art, history and architecture, a real feat when you consider how many different civilizations have ruled over Spain.

A good day spent with a delightful knowledgeable guide, Mayte. Well paced and took in all the major sights. I would like to see more costs included in the price as train fare (for all of us, guide included), entrance fees and lunch for the guide were extra. This added up to @ an additional $150 for 2 tourists and our guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thanks for your comment!

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: We do acknowledge that for added convenience, it would be desirable to include the entry fees into the tour cost. We leave this to the guide discretion though we do ask that these details be transparent on the tour page. The guide has ensured to make this very clear on the tour description that there will be additional costs at a total of 100-150 EURO pp. We appreciate the feedback and it will be considered moving forward.
