Barbara was wonderful! Very knowledgeable, organized, and personable. We had a great time!
Several years ago, my family and I traveled to Rome and used Context for a tour of the Vatican and food tour of Rome. Both tours were outstanding and when we decided to travel to Spain this summer, we went directly to the Context website to book our tours. All together we booked three tours with Context for our stay in Spain and this one was the weak entry. Itziar provided general overviews of the three cultures but didn't really go into much about how they interacted within or shaped the culture of Toledo. While she was great at getting us into attractions in front of larger tour groups, she often walked away from our group, leaving little time to take pictures or interact with what we were seeing and we were forced to scurry along, dodging between other tourists to keep up with her. At the end of the tour, we asked her for some restaurant recommendations in Toledo and while Itziar pointed us a general direction, she did not provide more guidance than that.
Fascinating history & Itziar was very nice and well organized. The tour for the price should include the cost of entrance fees and not make us pay out of pocket at each stop. Further, lunch was not supposed to take place, but we stopped at a cafe & had to each pay for coffee, et al...felt awkward & we were not interested in stopping while the other couple was. Also not a good fit with interests and age grouping with other couple on the tour...wide age difference made it hard for Itziar to guide effectively.
