    Tour guide was very nice, very informative. We know where we are going and what time, and what happens if we got separated (like where to go). Comfortable bus ride, she gave a narrative about landmarks, city, history, etc. on the way to and from the trip to Toledo.

    Stefi was very professional and cordial. She waited for us with an umbrella. That was very thoughtful. She was very pleasant and easy to understand. She showed us how to appreciate fine art of the masters. Keep up the good work.

    Great tour with an excellent English speaking tour guide who was very informative, helpful and friendly. A long day but certainly worth it.

    This was such a relaxing day for our family, starting with the comfortable drive from our hotel in Madrid to Toledo. Javi met us in Toledo. He tailored our hours with him based on our family’s dynamics, as we had ages ranging from 8 to 72. He was very knowledgeable and seemed like a bit of a celebrity in the town. Everyone serm d to know him. Javi used an iPad to help explain and illustrate things, which was super helpful in keeping our kids’ attention. We loved our time in Toledo so much we hope to return soon. I highly recommend this tour for quality and value for the money.

    Pedro was awesome and did a great job on our tour. It was raining and a bit cold but he was very good at adapting to the situation and making sure everyone had fun. Highly recommend Pedro.

    A beautiful historic place well worth touring. Our guide was a fluent English speaker who was very knowledgeable. The full day tour gave us a chance to shop in the afternoon and also have a leisurely lunch at one of the many restaurants. All in all, a lovely day

    We were happy with how easy this tour was to find and follow. We loved the basilica inside the Valley of the Fallen. Cristina was a great tour guide.

    It was a very pleasant tour. The driver was very friendly and extended the payed time around 10 minutes. We saw Madrid de los Austrias and we learnt many things about the city.

    Cristina was great providing many details of the palace. My suggestion is to change the meeting point to be in front of the entrance.

    My fiance and I booked the tour over Madrid's park but the weather was not nice over this area for the day we booked so they offered us to go to Segovia instead and it was INCREDIBLE. Choose Segovia ! The castle and the cathedral from up in the air is stunning. The staff was nice, pick up from hotel was perfect. Little snack and glass of sparkling wine in the field after the landing was great. Would recommend ! Only down side was the 2 other client that listened to music on speaker phone while the hot air balloon was in the air and did'nt bother the other 12 persons around, but was not the fault of the companie. Next time i would book a private tour 100% worth being alone !

    My initial tour date was canceled due to national holiday. Julia Travel accommodated our schedule providing morning tour the next day. Guide was excellent - knowledgeable, helpful and enthusiastic. Palace is amazing and the day was a beautiful one for seeing one of the treasures of Madrid

    Short and good tour of Toledo. We did the half day tour. We spent a lot of time in the cathedral and I was expecting more touring of the streets as they are fascinating. Our guide, Jorge, was knowledgable and friendly. Tour was in Spanish and English. Comfy bus ride. Good value. Stopped at great spots for photos.

    This was a great tour. Our guide Cassie was extremely knowledgeable, warm and understanding. Our stop at a tapas bar for a vermouth and tapa was very cool. Lunch at Botin was priceless. I have no reservation recommending this tour.

    We took this tour the day we landed to give us an intro to Madrid. David was our tour guide. He was so knowledgeable and shared his knowledge in an engaging way. He also takes great pictures. Riding e bikes made everything more fun and easy, especially on the hills! It was a great over view of the landmarks. Highly recommended!
