Both Avila and Salamanca were amazing locations full of charm and history. Our guide Minerva was very knowledgeable, professional and friendly. She told us a lot about the history of both towns and was fluent in both Spanish and English. She also kept doing a headcount to make sure everyone was accounted for and she also gave us clear instructions on how to get back to our meeting point. At the end of the trip, people gave her a round of applause. Highly recommended!
Had a perfect day to tour these 2 amazing old cities..
Excellent informative guide, clean comfortable bus.
Loved both cities,definitely worth the trip. Guided walking tours in each followed by free time and time for lunch. Enough time to see the highlights and get the feel for the cities, but not time enough for extensive exploration
So we had four seasons in one day on this tour, we had sunshine, rain, hail and snow!!!!! But none of this distracted from an excellent trip. Both places are beautiful and amazing! We Also had a wonderful tour guide Berlin (apologies if spelt wrong). This is a long day but is well worth it and the places you visit and see such as the cathedrals are a must do just fascinating and beautiful!! Excellent trip despite the weather!!!!
Good tour package but tour vehicle was not comfortable

Tour was good but vehicle was very uncomfortable and cramped even if not full due to space/leg room. Tour guide was great and driver was good and drove safely. Tour needs to provide headsets/ear phones for better communication and appreciation of tour information/details. This is how live/day tours in other countries/key cities are conducted such as in Rome, Paris, and New York.
This trip was very well done with lots of good information. Well organized and nice sights to visit. Time at each location was more than enough to get a good taste of the town. The early start time and less running subway cars on a saturday almost made me miss the tour so be careful.
It was long but very informative day, 3 hour bus ride to Salamanca. Both sites visited were impressive and would like to spend more time in Salamanca. Both tour guides were extremely friendly and helpful. Tour was bin-lingual on a large bus which is not optimal.
Great day visiting 2 beautiful places. The guide Maria was great. I had been to Avila before, but this tour covered some places the tour I did several years ago did not cover. The tour includes cathedral visits in both places - something I was not expecting!
