I was the only English speaking guest on the tour but it was a great bilingual experience. Roberto was an excellent guide and took the time to share many great stories, tips, and helpful reminders.

It is a relatively fast paced tour and the 2nd city of Avila has many small sights you may want to have a quick lunch in order to see more areas.

This guided tour bus let's you leave the driving to someone else and I got much more history and information than if I had gone alone. I think there was one other solo traveler among about 17 total.

The trip was amazing! Well paced, with time for rest room breaks, coffee breaks and souvenirs. The lady tour guide was incredible with history and details. The bus driver was also amazing, making us all comfortable during the bus ride. We took the optional lunch and it worked for us because it saved us time to pick where to eat. It was a 3 course meal with suckling pig and lamb as main course. My 9 yr old is a picky eater but the restaurant changed his menu to accommodate him as well for no charge. Overall, i highly recommend this trip. There will be a lot of stairs so thats something to consider.

Excellent tour of Avila and Segovia.

Our tour guide (Robert) is very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful.

Our driver Oliver made us feel safe by driving carefully to and from both cities. He was also very help and courteous.

Both cities are beautiful and there’s quite a bit to see. Interesting history and opportunities for great photos.

Excellent service thanks very much!

First of all, the tour was supposed to leave at 8:30 am. We didn’t leave until 9am. 30-40 minutes into the trip , traffic was stop due to a traffic accident. All traffic was diverted and it took an hour to get back to where we started so that the bus driver could take the express lane. Instead of extending the excursion, it was cut very short. Upon arrival at Avila, we literally had 30 minutes to see the wall . Part of the time was taken to distribute the headsets. The tour guide should have distributed them while stuck in traffic instead of taking the little time we had. It was so rushed, you couldn’t enjoy the town of Avila. Back on the bus we head to Sergovia. Upon arrival, we’re told our free time/lunch was only a hour instead of he 90 minutes advertised. We literally saw the aqueduct for a minute before lunch. After lunch we toured the outside of the basilica and finally spent quality time visiting the Alcazar of Segovia. Overall, we didn’t not get the time advertised . It was to be a 9 hr tour, we got 8 hrs, which included all the delays. I feel the company should have extended the time instead of shortening the tour. For the service we received, it was not worth the money.

Dear MsChinita, Thank you for taking the time to share this review, I regret to learn the inconveniences you experienced on the beginning of the Ávila and Segovia tour, Even though we strive to provide excellent service and keep the tour punctual, the start can be affected by unexpected circumstances such as the ones on the day of your tour. I regret this situation happened on your tour, please bear in mind the duration of the tour can not be extended since most of the attendants usually have later appointments to attend on arrival in Madrid. On a more positive note, I am glad you were able to take in the beauty in these two exceptional cities. Sincerely,

My teen daughters loved the fortress at Segovia. My husband’s favorite part was the wall in Avila and I was in awe of the aqueduct in Segovia. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly. We had a wonderful day trip from Madrid.

Walking through the city of Avila & Segovia - the quaint buildings and streets were amazing. Alberto was a great guide & very knowledgeable. Visiting end of Mar/ early April, it gets really cold in the hills, so definitely bundle up with jacket, hat and gloves

This full day tour was well narrated in both English and Spanish. Manolo, our guide, repeated everything exactly in both languages. He was extremely knowledgeable about the cities and their character. The tour was paced well. We had a very good sense of both cities and never felt rushed. We saw everything as promised and had time to explore Segovia on our own after lunch. It was a great day out, and we were fortunate to have fantastic weather. I highly recommend this tour as an excursion from Madrid.

The walls at Avila are amazing. It really transports you back in time. The aqueduct as well. I’ve never seen anything like it. The meal was good if you like to not think about what you are going to eat, but there was plenty of time and other options if you’d rather explore a little more.

It is a good idea if you have few time and you though only in public transport (which has a little difficult schedule and not cheaper prices).
Take more than one place in the same day gives you not very much free time for lunch and shopping and walking on your way. The general conclusion is I recommend it.

The Guide was excellent. Gave us a real perspective of all the sceneries and was open to questions. The food in Segovia was great. Especially the cochinillo. In summary the whole day was great. Friendly people enjoying life being tourists in a different culture and guided by knowledgeable guy in Robert. Recommended.
