Medieval Toledo Testimonials


Please see our TripAdvisor page for the most recent Across Madrid reviews.


 We did the Toledo Tour with Almuneda and were mighty impressed. It was a small group of 4 plus Almu. Almu was extremely knowledgeable and knew all historical details. I dont think I would have been able to cover Toledo on our own, the way we did with her. Her passion for guiding people is commendable. She is a very pleasant to be with and friendly. We covered all the major sites in Toledo within the short day tour and details provided esp about the paintings by El Greco were wonderful. I will recommend this tour to anyone who is looking for a private guided tour.

Even after our tour Almu helped us with details of shopping and nice areas to visit in Madrid. Thanks Almu for a great trip.

My husband and I enjoyed spending the day with Almudena in Toledo. She quickly got to know us and was able to customize the tour to our interests. With her background as an art historian, she wove the history, religion, architecture and works of art into a beautiful tapestry. It is the nuances she shared that made the experience so enjoyable. It is a day we will never forget!

Her guidance for visiting other sites in Madrid was extremely helpful and some of the most enjoyable aspects of our trip. We are know fans of Sorolla based upon her recommendation to visit his museum. We will contact Almudena again the next time we are in Madrid.

Almu gave us 3 tours last weekend in Madrid: the Prado, Reina Sophia and Sorolla's house, and the tours were the most informative and enjoyable experiences of our stay.

The size of the museums are intimidating and she began by asking what specific interests we had and she tailored the tours to suit, and she added other interesting facts that we would never have uncovered. Her depth of knowledge is remarkable.

We enjoyed the tours so much that we engaged her to take us on a tour of Toledo which was the highlight of our long weekend. She took us to see a panoramic view of the city, then on to the Gothic Cathedral followed by the mosque and various other sites. She guided us away from the rip off restaurants to a sensibly priced restaurant for lunch and the whole day was truly memorable.

I can not recommend these tours highly enough.
