Wonderful day trip from Madrid. Avila's fortress walls were impressive and I learned about St. Teresa and the martyrs Vicente , Sabina, and Cristeta. The walk through the town was nice.
Segovia was fantastic! We walked upto the Roman aqueduct to marvel at the scale and skill of the builders. Then, we had the lunch featuring the famous bean soup and roast suckling pig. It was topped with a nice Rioja wine. Then, it was onto the beautiful Segovia Cathedral just off the Plaza Mayor. As the last Gothic style cathedral in Spain, it had a great blend of styles inside.
Lastly, we went to the Alcazar - said to have inspired Disney and his princess castles. As you walk through the garden, the views of the surrounding areas are awesome. Finally, the castle appears and you are impressed with its beauty and its stature. I can see why this was a favorite castle for the kings of Castile and Leon.
All in all - a great visit for history and architecture buffs.

Avila and Segovia are beautiful cities so this is a day trip not to be missed. I recommend opting out of the lunch option as you will have some free time to explore on your own. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from in Segovia where you can have delicious cochinillo (roasted suckling pig).

Both towns are fascinating to visit. Segovia's aqueduct and Avila's complete wall are wonderful to see. We loved this tour.

Both cities are wonderful places.
The guide should give us a map of Segovia or show us the meeting point before dismiss the group for free visit time, otherwise one lady of the group would not loss with the group after free visit time.

Our guide was WONDERFUL. This was one of the best day tours we have ever experienced, and we have been on 6 continents. It was a privilege to see this place, get to know some new people from around the world over a VERY good lunch, and learn so much. Thanks for setting this up!

Fantastic but little time spent in Avila and we could have spent a whole day in each town.Segovia was brilliant and we actually were naughty and left the tour group and wandered around ourselves and saw things that we wanted to see. Got into a bit of trouble from tour leader for leaving but we like to travel independently usually. In hindsight we could have gone there ourselves. Do your own lunch and you will discover some great food - the Segovian specialty of suckling pig !!!

Mainly, it was not as small a tour as seemed advertised. I suggest you indicate that there is a fair amount of walking on hills (up and down) over cobblestones. Not a great tour for people with limited mobility.

This tour is exceptional. You get to visit two amazing cities that are full of history. Highly recommended! For the Segovia tour, I highly recommend getting the most expensive lunch option. The lunch was delicious and included soup, main course, dessert, wine and coffee. The Tour Guide, Ana, was truly exceptional. She had a wealth of knowledge about both cities and the history of every place we visited.

Two cities in Spain you just cannot miss if you like Roman history. This tour was amazing with a very knowledgeable tour guide who spoke both Spanish and English. Definitely a must do tour from Madrid.

Great tour however there wasn't really enough time at either location to do everything wanted. The trip is definitely worth it, though. The tour guide, Hulia, was very informative, friendly, and helpful. She was also just plain out nice and pleasant to be around. Avila is suprisingly beautiful inside and out with a wall out of a fairy tale. Segovia is unbelievable! I'd suggested getting a fast-ish food lunch there so you have time to shop and look around the town.
