You can either choose the itinerary among those proposed or we can adapt to your requests (schedule, itinerary, etc.). It is private visits or on demand, that is, you are not going to join people outside your group. The visit is for you and the guide works exclusively for you. These are aimed to organized groups like associations, schools, groups of friends, families, couples, etc. Likewise, we can arrange visits to indoors or outdoors monuments according to your requirements. Depending on the amount of people that belongs to the group and the day of the week, the guide service has a different pricing (from Monday to Friday, Weekends or holidays). We suggest you the following itineraries, considering that the first one is intended for those who either visit Toledo for the first time or have not gone on a guided tour. Note: if the group comes to Toledo by their own bus, we can arrange a PANORAMIC TOUR with our guide as an introduction of the city bordering the Tagus River, walls, bridges and access gates.
