This tour involves a lot of walking and I managed it because the guide suggested we get a taxi for one part (broke my leg 11 weeks before tour and was using a walker). The guide, was very knowledgeable and spoke excellent English. The tour information was given in both English and Spanish. We booked the included lunch and it was 3 courses and very good. We were even offered seconds on the suckling pig!
Great tour. The guide was terrific. Would have liked a little more time to explore on our own.
This is a fantastic tour, a must do when in madrid. The segorvian lunch was excellent and very good and knowledgable guide.
Great tours. worth the money. your guide was informative. Beautiful cities and we had extra time for shopping.
The tour guide(Carmen) was extremely knowledgeable and communicated well to us in English. It was a great way to see more of spain.
It is very difficult to describe the emotions I experienced looking at a Roman aqueduct. That this edifice has stood for 2 millennia with no mortar is a marvel. The Cathedral in Segovia as well as the walls of Avila make this tour well worth the trip. I must also commend our guide Jorge for his knowledge and organizational skills in keeping the tour moving.
The tour guide, Jorge, was fantastic. he was extremely knowledgable and told you enough about all the sites without over doing it.
I think this one of the highlights of out trip to Spain..
Highly recommend this tour
It was a great tour and i recommend to everyone who is interested to go :)
However, i recommend that the tour guide to be more friendly and patience.
Great day trip! We met the group at a very convenient location in Madrid to begin our trip. The bus was very comfortable. The tour guide was excellent and we did not feel rushed in any way. They made plenty of stops for refreshments and bathroom facilities. We had the "tourist" lunch with the group and the food was excellent. We had gone to Toledo the day before on our own, but we really enjoyed joining the tour group. I highly recommend.
My only complaint was that I tried to book online from Madrid and I thought I was booked only that asnot the case. When I finally managed to talk with a person I had a wait of 30 people before me. Also there was no address online to figure out if we could get to the departure location of the buses.
Our guide was knowledgeable and we had a positive experience.
An excellent tour, the aquaduct in Segovia is amazing as well as the basillica in avilla and the castle. Excellent tour guide. We did not opt for the food, there are plenty of places to eat in Segovia. Would highly recommend.
It was an amazing tour, loved it, wouldn't recommend it with lunch though. The tour guide was very nice lady, was willing to explain things to all ages. I had my 10 year old daughter with me, she liked it so much. The tour guide connected with her and made it an interesting time for her.
