What You Can Expect
Driver and Guide:
Start with a pickup from your Madrid hotel, and then relax on the journey to the famous UNESCO World Heritage site of Segovia. This ancient Roman city enjoys an idyllic setting between the rivers Eresma and Clamores, bordered by the imposing Sierra de Guadarrama mountain range.
First, take a look at 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. Then, continue with your guide to admire the impressive Alcázar Castle, one of the most remarkable castle-palaces in the country.
If you want a break from exploring, enjoy a rest in the shade in Segovia’s grand central square. Here, the hustle and bustle of daily life continues as it has done for centuries, and you can soak up the atmosphere whilst enjoying the fine views. One of the benefits of a private tour is that the itinerary is relatively flexible, and you can take breaks or perhaps see other attractions, as you wish. Simply discuss with your guide on the day.
As you continue to discover Segovia’s many wonders, 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!
Follow your knowledgeable guide through the city, and ask for tips for the best places to stop for lunch, perhaps enjoying local delicacies such as suckling pig or delicious Castilian soup. Any meals and drinks are at your own expense. At the end of your tour, say goodbye to your guide and travel back to your hotel in Madrid with your driver.
Segovia is absolutely magical and well worth the trip from the imposing aqueduct to the soaring castle. Our guide, Juan, was the same guide we had for the tour of Toledo and extremely knowledgeable. He kept us at a good pace and ensured we saw and became familiar with the history of all the key sights, including the castle. Don't miss the suckling pig!
The tour to Segovia is great value..you will see some of Spain's countryside as well as being able to explore the city of Segovia at your own pace. Alcazar Castle and the 2000yr old Roman Aqueduct are standout attractions.
My only negative comment is that the driver did not use the microphone and passengers were unable to hear his commentary, also more factual comments on the history would have been better with less of his own opinions. He was a very cheerful and happy driver and we all enjoyed the day tour.
