Arturo was a very knowledgeable guide. We saw the walls and convent of St. Theresa in Avila. Lunch was OK. The service was excellent and it was very fast so we could continue with the tour. Segovia was beautiful. The aqueduct is a marvel and Alcazar is beyond belief. A great tour.

The tour was excellent. The guide was a very nice lady, very polite and gave us a lot of good information. (I am sorry I forgot her name). She gave exactly the same info in Spanish and English ( I am bilingual and could check, lol).
We visited Avila first, I enjoyed the most visiting the daily fresh food market in an old town square.
Avila is ok, but Segovia is SPECTACULAR. It is amazing the location of the aqueduct and how it still stands (stones with no cement), we had lunch in a very old restaurant with fine food (I chose the cheaper lunch and was ok, the complete one was too heavy to allow you to keep walking the rest of the day). I found Segovia a much nicer city too, we had a nice walk through the pedestrian area which was delightful. The cherry on the pie was the alcazar: just a beautiful castle with an amazing view: they say Walt Disney got there the inspiration to design Cinderella's castle in Disney (I do not know if it is true, but looks possible).
I enjoyed the one day tour a lot

Great tour. Our guide was knowledgeable and I loved that she gave all the information in both English and Spanish. We really enjoyed it. I do wish we had had some free time in Avila (15 minutes would have been enough) but overall it was a terrific experience and we would definitely recommend it!

We found the trip was great. The guide was full of knowledge but could have spoken more in English instead of Spanish. It was an English tour that we booked. Well worth the cost even though it rained most of the time.

Avila and Segovia was well worth the money. Segovia was amazing. We were about a half hour late leaving, and the English only tour was in both Spanish and English, but the tour guide was great and pointed out all sorts of things along the way. Gave us some background on Madrid as well while leaving. Totally recommend it!

One of the nice places to see when you're in Madrid. Highly recommended. Amalia did a great job in explaining stuff in details.Did not join the group for lunch but we found a place where they serve cochinlilos (roasted suckling pig) and it was very tasty and crunchy.
