Both places were very interesting and our tour guide Alberto was excellent! He was very professional, personable and friendly, and was really knowledgeable about the places. He made it a point to talk about all of interesting points in both location in a funny and lively way. Highly recommended!

Worth the while to go along with the tour group. Amigo Tour guides are more knowledgeable and the lady guide for Monastery was patient with the group. Valley of the Fall is a must go, spectacular view and awesome architecture
Great Trip!

The tour company listed on aviator did not match the name on the bus. It was 7nclearwhich of the six buses lined up were for this tour, the guide was no where to be found. Mixed messages given throughout the trip. However, the sites and explanations were very good, and I liked that we were not rushed in any way, although that did mean getting back into Madrid much later than planned.
