Private Tour to Aranjuez and Toledo from Madrid with an Official Guide

Loading...

On our accessible day tour from Madrid, we will first drive to Aranjuez and finish the day at Toledo.

To start our tour, we drive for 1 hour to Aranjuez while your official local guide introduces the history of this city. First, we will visit the main attraction in Aranjuez: the Royal Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It was built on the order of Santiago, however, the Catholic Monarchs assumed authority of this order. Hence, Aranjuez became part of the Royal state with the palace becoming a countryside residence for the Spanish kings. Carlos V initiated the construction plan for the palace. He wanted to build a large Italian-style villa. Yet, his son Felipe II started making it in 1564 after he became the next king.

Afterward, we will stop at a local restaurant to have lunch and take a break. After lunch, we continue to the UNESCO World Heritage City of Toledo. It is one of the most important cities in Spain’s history. Our drive will take about 45 minutes. At Toledo, our first stop will be Mirador del Valle.  From this viewpoint, you can admire the beauty of Toledo’s walled center. Once in the city, we’ll take a stroll/wheel through the old city to discover one of the richest monumental heritages in Europe. You will see many important buildings such as Bisagra Gate, Cristo de la Luz Mosque, Santa María la Blanca, and Tránsito synagogues. Next, we will visit Toledo’s cathedral, Catedral Primada, with its Mujedar ornamentation. Inside, you will see paintings by El Greco, Rafael, Tiziano, and Goya.

After exploring the treasures of Toledo, we will return to Madrid. Here our accessible day tour to Aranjuez and Toledo from Madrid will officially end.

As an alternative for this tour, you can also spend one whole day in Toledo and go on a half-day tour to Aranjuez on the following days.

This tour does not require a high amount of walking or wheeling, and it can also be completely tailor-made based on each person preferences. Most streets in Toledo are very old and has irregular cobblestoned pavement, so it’s recommended that some people depending on their level of mobility are accompanied. Almost all the halls in Toledo’s Cathedral are accessible. Some points in the Royal Palace have old stone pavement and parts that stand out. There are different adapted bathrooms mapped along the tour. However, the itinerary also avoids steps and it follows a mostly flat path along the Tour.

  • Meeting point: Hotel Pick-up or other
  • Starting time: Flexible
  • Duration: 8 Hours
  • Return: We recommend allowing time for a Lunch break to sample typical local cuisine and wine at one of our suggested restaurants, equipped with an adapted toilet.
