Half day to toledo from Madrid - Elder people

Hello, I would like to visit toledo for a half day with my parents (over 70), do you think walking guided tour with a group(through viator) would be difficult for them ? Especially that I read that the city is uphill? In this case, What do you recommend as an alternative... appreciate your recommendation for the most comfortable way to do the tour.

Thanks

Hey, I am 72 and plan on a Camino in 2020! Half a day isn’t very long to see anything

Hi. I am 71 and there is no way I would even consider doing the Camino but I have done Toledo about a year ago. It is a little taxing but definitely doable if you do it slowly and comfortably. At your own pace and being able to stop when you wish. If it gets too difficult you can grab a taxi (not so easy to find but not impossible) which is very inexpensive.

Yes agree with that. They don't want to be dragged around at some tour guides pace. Toledo is tough, you need to be at your own pace. When we arrived at our villa last May in Mazarambroz and expressed our desire to visit Toledo the day after, the owners told us it takes 3 days to see Toledo properly. We did a long half day and eventually concluded they were right!

Hello, did you end up going with you parents? I'm in the same situation and have second thoughts.

Please advise, I'm traveling in a week.

Thanks

You can minimize the worst part of the hill by using the escalator; located near the intercity bus terminal
