Tour description

Discover the lifestyle in Toledo in the past thanks to this mystery tour and take advantage to have the general introduction about the city and the best recommendations.

Secret Toledo!! Since Roman times, a multitude of towns have made Toledo a prosperous and abundant place.
Jews, Visigoths, Arabs, have dressed the streets of the city with art, history and a lot of mystery. Discover with this route the most hidden and beautiful streets of the city! I will also tell you the secrets of each one and we will see the places of worship left by our ancestors!

Welcome to a Secret Toledo where you will discover the history and anecdotes of:

  • Alcazar of Toledo

We will start at the imposing fortress that stands in the city of Toledo. We explain the history of the city and how this building was formed.

  • stolen streets

How stolen streets? Yes, you read that right! It turns out that in Toledo people robbed a street and kept it for themselves! How can it be? I will show you some of them and you will see part of the Spanish picaresque!!

  • Old prison in the city.

One of my favorite points is to discover what is hidden behind the prisons in Toledo. I will show you a 16th century Gothic building full of precious and mysterious details.

  • Primate Cathedral

Spectacular cathedral filled with works of art both inside and out.
We will give the most important and relevant details, as it holds a lot of history and is an essential stop.

  • Mosque

The best preserved mosque in Spain from the 10th century AD, one of the jewels in the crown that gives off an incomparable charm. We cannot miss the mosque that has been preserved for more than 1000 years.

  • Jewry

Here were located most of the synagogues and buildings related to Jewish culture. now it has become a very important part for everyone.

You can locate yourself in this neighborhood thanks to several signs that are scattered throughout the Jewish quarter! I will help you identify them and so you will always know where you are.

In this area we spend about 10/15 minutes since it is a very large area and it is impossible to explain everything, we explain the most important thing about the Jewish quarter.

If you are especially interested in the Jewish quarter, you can arrange a private tour by contacting our guru.

We'll waiting for you!!

If you are earlier in Toledo, before the tour starts, let us know and we'll recommend you tips to take advantage as long as the tour starts!!

The free tour is created for individuals, couples, families and groups of up to 6 people.

If you are only able to visit Toledo for a short visit. I highly recommend this tour. Our guide gave us just enough information to make us feel like we learned a little about this amazing little city. It was well worth the 30 minute speed train from Madrid for a few hours.

We went in Nov month. Our guide Carmen was really knowledgeable and told us many small yet interesting things about Toledo. She gave us recommendations for best restaurants and photo spots as well. Time well spent !

Carmen was a great guide! I loved that she handed out sheets with suggestions at the end. Made it so much easier to figure out where to go once the tour was over. The route was interesting and not super strenuous. I'd take this tour again.
