I did this tour by myself and it was great! Rocio was very informative, caring and knowledgeable. Met some interesting, nice people. Avila and Segovia are a must see, beautiful and a nice get away for the day. Only issue was with the hotel pickup.
Cannot rate this tour as we missed it. Hotel we stayed at first booked a ride to get to the VPT office, but driver did not show up, Hotel then told a taxi driver where to take us and still could have made the tour, however the doorman spoke very little English and Cab driver did not speak English at all and dropped us at a tour bus stop, which still would have been alright, but no one there spoke English and could not direct us to the bus. Were stranded in the middle of Madrid. Thank goodness my daughter found a city map on here i-phone and we were able to walk about a mile to Julia Travel, and then to a cab back to the hotel.
We saw a variety of interesting things which we would have missed had we traveled on our own. The big disappointment was that the tour guide barely spoke English and did most of the tour in Spanish. She also had a soft voice. I probably was able understand 10 of what she said.
The included lunch was so so. Buying our own meal would have been a better choice.
The tour sites were excellent and well-chosen and important historically.
I can't give a higher score to the tour, though, because I couldn't understand our guide--she has a good command of the history and of English vocabulary, but her pronunciation is very difficult to follow. I would have got much more from the audioguides I saw some people using at the Segovia Alcazar and the video screen at the Segovia Cathedral.
Toma cuidado com a voucher que é imprimido, coloca o local onde está hospedado para buscar uma hora antes da excursão, porém, o que estava escrito não era o que era, resolvi com agência que foi bem prestativo e fui no dia seguinte, o passeio muito bem organizado.
...tanto ávila como segovia son lugares magníficos para descubrir la historia y disfrutar de lugares tan increíbles como el situarse bajo los acueductos romanos o el ingreso a santa teresa, pero la comida típica que no es tipo gourmet de la posada si bien es suculenta no es del todo sabrosa, el bus tenía problemas en caja de cambios y marchaba en cambios bajos a poca velocidad y la guía en varias ocasiones se ausentaba hablando por su móvil, todo lo demás es perfecto...
