Madrid Combo Tour: Toledo and Aranjuez Royal Palace Day Trip
Reviewed by: NorthUmpquaFarms, November 2014
Excellent tours with great guides. These are really two half-day tours to sites in different directions from Madrid. So, first tour ends in Madrid with a quick hour (or less) for lunch and then the next tour leaves. This makes for a VERY strenuous and long day. Even though there is an escalator most of the way from the drop off point to upper Old Town Toledo, there is still a lot of hill left as well as stairs within the buildings visited. In addition, the Aranjuez Palace is multi-story. Even though I sat out and enjoyed a bench in the palace gardens after interior tour, I still had a wonderful time and would recommend the tour (but maybe split into two days).

A wonderful experience, our guide was very knowledgeable, kind, and to the point. Both places are very pretty. In my opinion Aranjuez was more impressive than el Palacio Real in Madrid.

Our tour guides were both excellent. Although strict with time, they were so very knowledgeable and well-spoken. Both their Spanish and English were impeccable. Their passion was infectious and made the many sights we saw come to life. After the previous day's nightmare, I was relieved to have both excellent experiences. There were four of us in the group and we all noted how wonderful both tours were that day. We owe that to our guides.

The guide we had, Ana, was extremely knowledgeable and pleasant. It was worth the price we paid. The bus we rode in was very comfortable. I will use Viator again on my next trip.

Very good excursions for just one day. The guide was very good (but I don't know her name).
It's been a good choice!

The guides were both every informative and friendly. They showed us a lot of the interesting sites and told us the important information. It would be better if it was a combined tour, as the trip back to Madrid was a bit unnecessary. I also wouldn't recommend the Aranjuez tour, only because the site itself is unorganised and inaccurate in terms of their flow of rooms, time periods and representation of rooms.
