Terrific trip...Segovia is a must see destination. Well organized by Julia travel through Viator

The tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. The bus ride was a bit long, but this was by far the best way to see both Avila and Segovia. Only 2 of us chose the lunch option, but I believe it was a good decision. The food was delicious and plentiful.

The tour guide was very knowledgable and friendly. We had a great time and learned quite a bit about two very interesting medieval towns.

Our guide was fantastic and we saw all the best sites in both cities. It was very informative but also interesting, and we kept a nice quick pace so nobody got bored but we still had ample time to explore on our own and take photos. I recommend not doing the included lunch so you have more time to explore Segovia without the group. Overall excellent tour and I really do recommend!

Avila is a very picturesque walled city with many towers in the walls. The tour walked through the city and stopped at a couple churches including the Convent of St. Teresa. Segovia is the star of the trip! It is a breathtaking city with ancient Roman aqueduct, meandering streets, great restaurants (lunch on your own gives you many options and we highly recommend it!), and the incredible Alcazar (the royal castle of Segovia and Summer home of King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella). The views of the countryside from Alcazar were stunning! Definitely a lot of walking but well worth it!

Well organized, moved along nicely, good guides on the bus and in the towns, no b/s!
Assembly at the travel agency was a bit bizarre but not a problem. Good value, well worth it.

Arturo is a great guide. Our 14 person group had both English and Spanish speaking members. He spent about the same time with the English as the Spanish explanation. The "gourmet" lunch was good but not outstanding.

Amazing sights. But like the full-day Toledo trip, no time to shop for souveniers.

Most beautiful country, and awesome history in both the walled city and the aqueduct! Had plenty of time in Segovia to have lunch in the square and wander and explore the streets. Guide was Excellent!

Segovia is an amazing town and an absolute must do tour. The acqueduct is beautiful, however it is the town that is amazing to wander through. I would skip the lunch and simply grap something or bring a sandwhich and spend more time seeing the city, it is that pretty.

Great trip, even weather was bad. We really enjoyed both locations and especially loved walking around in Segovia. The tour guide spoke well, going back and forth between English and Spanish and was easy to understand. He was very pleasant, too. Gastronomic lunch was very tasty..

Helped by perfect weather and an excellent trilingual and interesting and knowledgeable courier (Arturo) in a new aircon bus this was a great day out! Sociable fellow passengers and a good typico Segovia lunch was a "bonus"

Our guide Horhay was fantastic and the walking tour was just at the right pace (for a 30 year old guy). He spoke English very well and explained things in English and Spanish equally. We went to many beautiful places. I also did day trips to Toledo and Sevilla so visiting Avila and Segovia is a little repetitive with the cathedrals and alcazars, but each city does have its own unique but subtle differences.
