I enjoyed this tour, especially the history and old quaint towns. Avila is a small walled town from 13th century, whilst Segovia is bigger with many restaurants and cafes for lunch as well as a beautiful old 15th century castle. Our guide was very knowledgeable however he did conduct the tour both in English and Spanish so patience was needed at times. He led the group very well. We had a new air-conditioned coach for transport and the group size was around 25 (possibly smaller today because it is sunday).
This cycle tour was a lovely way to see Madrid sights. There was only myself and one other on the tour, possibly because it was a weekend, however this meant a more personalised tour with plenty of time to take photos. Our guide was ok, however at times he sped off down big streets, the wind in his hair and dodging cars/buses. Luckily we were both experienced cyclers and could cope, however i would not recommend this trip for children or anyone not really confident on a bike (spain does not have many designated cycle paths, therefore some of the tour is on a shared road with cars). Helmets were provided.
