Excellent trip to Avila and Segovia. The tour also include Batalha Monastery. It was fun.
Nice and beautiful towns of Avila and Segovia. Enjoyed this trip so much.
Julia tours did a great job on this tour. We didn't want the day to end as we got to see some amazing sights! I would highly recommend this tour.
The instructor, Jorge, was very knowledgeable and shared the history of both cities, as well as the mountain communities in between, in a very compelling and interesting manner. He provided information in both Spanish and English. I enjoyed it immensely - all was great.
The driver was very efficient and courteous. the bus was extremely clean and comfortable. The guide was fluent Spanish/English, and was extremely knowledgeable. The restaurant was clean and interesting and offered us a variety of meals to choose from. We would recommend this tour to anyone.
Well worth the day trip!! Beautiful places (truly like a Fairy tale), and interesting history. our Guide, Anna, made the trip fun, not rushed (even though you are on a tight schedule to see everything in a day). Anna's cadence for explainations went in sentences, not in paragraphs - 2 or 3 sentences in Spanish repeated in English, then visa versa, so that no one lost interest between the two, making the history very enjoyable. Get the lunch option; the roasted pig and lamb offered with this trip was wonderful with generous portions of food and wine. Be prepared to walk -a lot- on cobblestone roads and walkways. HINT: wear comfortable, flat shoes.We watched a young lady twist her ankle in the wrong shoes -ruined her trip and disrupted everyone elses!! Have fun and Safe Travels
Amazing tour wish it could have been longer it is a wonderful experience seeing such lovely ancient cities. regards Robyn W
Both cities are a short bus ride out of Madrid and the scenery heading to Avila (the first stop) was really beautiful. Jorge, our amazing guide, had so much information to share that really made the journey meaningful and fun. He conducted a bi-lingual tour (Spanish and English) which was really impressive. I felt as though I had enough time in each city to enjoy it (I wish I had maybe a little more time in Avila), but this trip is definitely worth making if you have time while in Madrid.
There is a lot of walking involved in this tour,mostly uphill,but well worth the effort. The walled city of Avila,Sergovia and the Alcazar were lovely. Fantastic scenery,the countryside and snowcapped mountains were beautiful.Take a warm coat and scarf no matter what time of year you go.It is also quite a long day,so maybe take water bottles also. Our guide Arthur,was good. We had plenty of time on our own in Sergovia to explore and take photos. The wall is certainly impressive.Dont miss this tour.
We had a fantastic time on this two centre tour. It was well paced and full of interesting gems - from the impressive walls of Avila to the wondrous aquaduct of Segovia. Our guide had a lovely, gentle way about him and we never felt rushed even though we covered lots of ground on the day. The scenery, the history, the whole experience was wonderful. We thoroughly recommend this great trip.
