A list of the best guided tours of Toledo, ranging from one-day trips from Madrid to multi-day itineraries that take you all around Spain.
Toledo is an ideal Day Trip from Madrid, but you're going to run into difficulties if you want to visit Toledo by public transport en route to the south of Spain as there are no trains buses on from Toledo - you have to return to Madrid.
Many of these guided tours, on the other hand, do the logical thing and treat Toledo as a stop over on the way from Madrid to the south.
There's a tour which includes the same half-day in Toledo as in the above tour, but with a half day in the oft-overlooked World Heritage-listed town of Aranjuez with its Royal Palace and gardens: Combined Half-Day Trip to Toledo and Aranjuez
Another option is to combine Toledo with El Escorial, where you can see the final resting place of most of Spain's kings: Combined Half-Day Trip to Toledo and El Escorial
In addition to your visit to Toledo, the four-day trip takes in Granada, Seville and Cordoba. The five-day version adds in a trip to Ronda (which is great) and a night on the Costa del Sol. The six-day tour adds in Barcelona as well.
You can take the four-day itinerary from Barcelona, adding an extra day to accommodate the extra travel time and a trip to Zaragoza.
Though these tours cram a lot into five days, they are a hassle-free way of seeing some of Spain's absolute gems in a short space of time.
