What You Can Expect
On arrival, travel with your guide by taxi into central Segovia, and then head out on your walking tour. First, take time to marvel at the city’s enormous aqueduct, one of the finest Roman monuments still to be standing on the Iberian Peninsula. The Aqueduct of Segovia’s precise construction date remains a mystery, though it’s thought to date back as far as the 1st century. The structure still carries water from the Fuente Fría River into the city to this day! Admire the sheer scale of this masterpiece of Roman engineering, and take time to photograph this important landmark.
Continue onward with your guide to admire impressive Alcázar Castle, one of the most remarkable castle-palaces in the country. Built in the 11th century, this medieval fortress is often said to be an inspiration for Disney’s fairytale castle! As you explore the exterior of the site, imagine the many medieval tournaments, feasts and festivals that may once have taken place inside its walls.
Your next stop is impressive Segovia Cathedral, fondly known as the ‘lady of cathedrals’ for its elegance. Built in late-Gothic style, this Roman Catholic church sits in the center of the city and boasts a fascinating history. Pose for photos in front of its attention-grabbing façade, and hear snippets of its past from your guide.
After your walking tour finishes, enjoy some free time to see the city at your own pace. Perhaps ask your guide for tips for the best places to stop for lunch, and try out local delicacies such as suckling pig or delicious Castilian soup. Any meals, refreshments and admission tickets are at your own expense.
At the prearranged time, make your own way back to Segovia station and board your train back to Madrid’s Chamartín Station. Please note: Guide will be available for 3 hours during tour.

Must do if you have a few days in Madrid. Gorgeous town, loved the aqueduct and the Cathedral. The Alcazar was being worked on so it was partially covered in scaffolding, but the interiors were well worth the visit. Our tour guide was great and we had no one else in our group. We went in March and it was considerable cooler than in Madrid. Not very crowded with tourists highly recommend it.
this tour states ALL DAY TOUR-8 hours and i did not get that and paid 508 euros for a round trip train ticket...was picked up at 10 and and the tour guide left at 1pm. then had lunch but the town SHUTS down from 2-5 and we had a 6pm already purchased train ticket. we have been debating weather saying anything now that we are home, but i will not recommend your website and defiantly not this tour to Segovia b/c this is not what the itinerary stated. that money was hoped to be spent on a day trip and not just 3 hours...plus the train time. not sure what you can do to credit us back funds as i kinda feel like i was robbed. the tour guide was pleasant and knowable and we got to see the cathedral and castle at extra charges, not mentioned but i am so disappointed it almost makes me angry to feel lied to as well on the description. i can not recommend you to friends going to Spain.
