What can you expect from this wine tour to Toledo?
This tour to Toledo has nothing in common with the typical daily tour buses travelling from Madrid to Toledo - it offers a truly unique opportunity to enjoy so much more than just Toledo city. Expressly for small groups, this tour to Toledo is led by a senior guide who will escort you through the history of Spain, introduce you to typical food from La Mancha, as well as provide you with expert knowledge on the production of wine in this area of Spain (which is, coincidentally, the world´s largest vineyard).
The tour begins in La Mancha, where you will enjoy the silhouettes of the elevated Don Quixote windmills (and maybe go inside, date depending).
Next, a beautiful winery is waiting, where you will learn about wine production in this part of Spain and enjoy high quality, award-winning wines, accompanied by an expert from the winery (or on many occasions, the owner himself, if he is available).
Lunch is served in one of these truly unique and very special restaurants, located inside a 13th Century cave or in a traditional clay pottery workshop. You will enjoy a traditional meal that we have selected especially for you, a menu that includes high quality dishes that come from the region of La Mancha. This will be a meal to enjoy and remember.
After the meal, Toledo awaits in the afternoon, where you will enjoy a panoramic drive around the city from the other side of the river, to really see Toledo at its best (see tour pictures above). After this, we will walk through the old town to explore the city where Hebrew, Catholic and Muslim cultures co-existed and have left an incredible heritage. We will visit 2-3 monuments, such as the Cathedral, one the most beautiful Cathedrals in Spain, and the Synagogue.
Duration: 10-12 hours

I would like to say a massive thank you to the company and especially to Raul and David for the excellent tours to Segovia and Toledo. You guys went above and beyond! You guys are true ambassadors of Spain! Thank you very much!
A tour does not get any better than this. Picked up at our hotel by the smart and informative guide, who speaks perfect English, then whisked away to a micro-brewery and excellent vineyard, plus an extravagant lunch in a cave, and on to wonderful Toledo! The places were amazing, but I think the best part of the day was meeting our guidel, the energetic folks (beer artists) at the brewery, and the charming young owner at the winery. So far, my favorite Spain experience!
Fantastic tour! Tour guide Raul was a delight! His knowledge of the area and of Spanish history and art was exceptional. Winery tour one on one with the owner, with so much to see, learn and taste! Unique and interesting restaurants and Spanish cuisine. Do not miss the El Greco Museum. I travel all over the world and this was one of the best tours I have ever taken.

Our guide, was excellent - his English was superb, he was very knowledgeable about the history and about wine, he had a good sense of humor, and he was very flexible and accommodating, no matter what we asked".
My wife and I had a wonderful experience. Our all day tour included a very personal tour of a winery by the third generation family owner. The tasting was great and we ordered a case of their red wine for delivery back to the US. The charming restaurant selected for our lunch was picture perfect. Located in a small Spanish village near the old Danish windmills in the La Mancha region, the restaurant served up an unbelievable menu of fish, meat, vegetables and more wine. We recommend this tour to anyone desiring an escape from the larger city environments. Our tour was day-long and we were able to see a tremendous variety of landscapes, villages and country culinary experiences.

What an absolutely perfect day! I highly recommend this as something different to do on your visit to Spain. We were picked up at our hotel at 8:00am by our guide; his English is excellent and he made us feel immediately welcome. We drove out of town towards La Mancha and the town of Consuegra. Before we drove up to see the windmills we stopped at a tiny café in the town for a great cup of coffee. Then it was up to the windmills which were really cool; you can even walk inside one and see the inner workings and the views from the top which were beautiful. Then it was on to a family-owned winery where we got a private tour from the owner. He let us taste several wines right out of the casks which was a nice touch. Then into the tasting room for some amazing wines and snacks. We then headed to lunch at an absolutely beautiful restaurant built right in a cave. The food was awesome and it was one of the most unique restaurants I have ever been too. Finally we headed to the town of Toledo. We went up to the top of the town for some photos of some of the most amazing views on our trip. We then drove down to the city to explore and see some more monuments including El Greco's painting "The Burial of the Count of Orgaz:. If you haven't been to Toledo, I HIGHLY recommend it. It is small and quaint and much less crowded than either Madrid or Barcelona. Finally, we stopped to enjoy a beer and do a little people-watching before heading back to our hotel in Madrid.
