If short of time or without transport this is a great way to see these two cities - our guide was fantastic with a good depth of knowledge.

Both towns are magnificent but Segovia offers even more than expected. Our guide Alicia was very knowledgeable and experienced. Even though she had to speak English, Spanish and Italian at the same time she managed it properly. We had a feeling that everybody was satisfied.

Both Avila and Segovia are incredibly charming cities! Our guide Jorge was very professional and informative. We were the only ones that spoke English on our tour, but Jorge took special care to make sure that everyone got equal information, and the others on the tour were very nice (we broke bread and shared wine at lunch!). I speak some Spanish and overheard Jorge telling another guide how important it is to give everyone the same treatment, which was very cool. The lunch that we paid for was very good and authentic, however if you are squeamish about your meat beware. Overall the trip was great, and the castle tour in Segovia was a lovely way to end the day.

Very nice trip and also very nice places. I recommend this trip full of historical information. And the segovian lunch - gastronomically, indeed and very tasty!

This tour was very nice. The guide was highly informed about the area. We had a very tasty lunch where the waitress used a plate to show the tenderness of the meat and then broke the plate. Highly entertaining too.

We loved these 2 cities! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. I would definitely do it again. We opted for lunch on our own. Do not eat next to the aqueduct in Segovia. There are much nicer restaurants if you keep walking towards the cathedral.

Wonderful trip. Tour guide was very knowledgeable. Group was mixed with both English and Spanish speakers. Enjoyed seeing all of the sites - the walled city of Avila and its basilica and cathedral, and Segovia with its aquaduct, cathedral, and castle. We signed up for the tourist lunch and the food at the restaurant was good. Highly recommend this tour.
