Detailed Description

This tour gives you a taste of Spain’s cultural highlights. You’ll visit two of the country’s most important cities, each of which represents a totally different aspect of Spain. Madrid, the capital of Spain, is a dynamic modern city that buzzes with excitement. As a perfect contrast, the nearby historic city of Toledo has a magical aura. Strolling around Toledo takes you back in time to a world that existed several centuries ago.

Madrid is pure energy. Fun-loving people, amazing sites and nonstop nightlife await you. You’ll discover world-class art, tour the amazing royal palace and enjoy the finest cuisine—all in the same day! Adjust your schedule to sync up with Spanish time, so that you can enjoy the leisurely late lunches and dinners. If you’re visiting in summertime, you’ll want to do as the Spaniards do and take a siesta in the afternoon. Stroll the impressive grand boulevards, meet the locals at tapas bars and visit a fashionable casino or jazz lounge. 

Toledo is often described as the “soul” of Spain or the “essence” of Spain. This ancient walled city, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is steeped in history. High above the city looms the foreboding Alcázar, the ancient Moorish fortress that was later converted into the palace for Christian kings. From a distance, the Alcázar appears to be a fairy-tale castle. When you arrive up close, you can feel the magic of centuries gone by. Take in the inexplicable sense of mystery and history. You will feel the ambience of another era, as you stroll the ancient streets.
