ABOUT THE Toledo: Day & Half-Day Tours from Madrid

This tour is operated by our partner Julià Travel

 

Discover the historic and impressive ancient city of Toledo, just a 1-hour scenic bus ride from the centre of Madrid. Explore the winding streets of this fascinating cultural melting pot on this stunning day or half-day trip from Madrid. There are two different tour options, all including entrance to the cathedral and transportation by air-conditioned bus.

 

Option 1

5-hour Half-Day Trip to Toledo with Guided Tour 

For those wanting to pack as much into their Madrid trip as possible, this tour departs from Madrid at 8:45am and is typically back in the city by 1:45pm. Enjoy the beautiful scenery on your way to Toledo and back onboard an air-conditioned bus, included in the price.

On this half-day tour of Toledo you'll wander through Toledo's fascinating streets while you learn about its magnificent architectural heritage. Few places in the world better represent the coming-together of Europe’s three major religious cultures than Toledo, which has seen periods of Christian and Muslim rule throughout the centuries, and is also home to significant Jewish cultural history. Perched on a hill rising over the plains of Castilla-La Mancha, this UNESCO World Heritage-listed city never fails to impress.

After following your guide through the cobbled streets of Toledo, you'll reach the 13th-century Cathedral - considered one of the most important Gothic cathedrals in Spain. You'll admire the details of its façade before enjoying a complete guided tour through its interior led by your local guide.

Before returning to Madrid you'll have some free time to explore Toledo on your own.

Your ticket includes:

  • Transportation on an air-conditioned coach
  • Entrance fee to the impressive Toledo Cathedral
  • Builingual guided tour (English and Spanish)
  • Individual radio guide system

 

Option 2

This tour departs from Madrid at 8:45am and returns by 4:45pm. Enjoy the beautiful scenery on your way to Toledo and back onboard an air-conditioned bus, included in the price.

Once you arrive, your local guide will take you on a walking tour of the Historic City of Toledo and you'll learn about its fantastic heritage and incredible architectural style. Visit the Monastery of San Juan de los Reyes, the Synagogue of Sta. Maria la Blanca and admire one of El Greco's most famous paintings, the Burial of the Count of Orgaz, at the Church of Santo Tomé. After that, you'll explore the iconic Toledo Cathedral, considered one of the most important Gothic Cathedrals in Spain.

Around 1pm, you'll take a 1.5-hour lunch break before your guide takes you to the ancient Mosque of Cristo de la Luz.

And before returning to Madrid, the bus will stop at the view point Mirador del Valle, so you can enjoy some of the best panoramic views of Toledo.
