Activities: Toledo - a day trip from Madrid to see 2 old Shuls. Can hire a tour guide (his contact info is somewhere in the thread), which is not cheap, or can take a train on your own. 1 of the Shuls (El Transito) is closed on Mondays. @Yehuda went on a day when that Shul was closed, and the other Shul was really just an empty room and seemed like a Christian organization now runs the center. Without a tour guide, it was hard to get anything Jewish out of our trip (other than an antique store that had some Judaica). But, people who have taken the tour (discussed in the thread) have said it was great! Recommended to go with a tour or not go at all (and ensure to go on a day when both are open!). Report in the thread that the sometimes-closed Shul has audio headsets for use, so that would help.

Best way to get around anywhere in this country is by scooter. It is safer driving them there since they outnumber cars by great proportions.

Hi

Can anyone make a recommendation for a tour guide for Jewish Madrid and Toledo.  I have identified two Asher Bentolila and Shlomo Hanoka and the information about them is odd because they seem to be operating off of the same website.

Thank you!

We used Shlomo Hanoka and he was excellent.

We did a tour with Asher Bentolila (Segovia, not Toledo or Madrid) and liked him a lot

Thank you very much.  On a separate matter, has anyone had issues bringing in packaged Kosher food (chess, cold cuts) to Spain?

Thanks
