We decided to extend our time in Madrid an took the tour to Segovia and Toledo, it was a wonderful experience, the tour guide Irene, spoke very good Inglish and was very knowledgeable of the history of both places, I highly recommend to take this tour to anybody going to Madrid, it was probably the high light of our time in Madrid
Our tour guide Lydia was very helpful, friendly and informative, offering information in Spanish and in English. The bus was brand new and very comfortable. The only drawback was some guests found in necessary to start talking loudly amongst themselves as Lydia spoke the the group in English. A great trip.
This is an excellent trop, two beautiful places to visit. Our tour guide was excellent (Prioro sorry if spelt wrong) she was interesting and had a sense of humour really made the experience come alive. The places themselves are beautiful and really a must see! I would highly recommend the tour. We were unfortunate enough to have a puncture on the way home and our driver Oscar was brilliant. The company and guide also dealt with really well and arranged alternative transport for us, only really put 45 mins on to the trip, was really well handled by all involved!
We love to do tours with Viator but this one was too rushed and not enough time to spend at the beautiful attractions. a Small group tour would have been better. Too many people on the bus/group. Everything had to be done in different languages which took a very long time. The guide was friendly but instructions not very clear. We arrived at our first destination were told to find bathrooms/coffee and be back at the starting point. Problem not enough places open too many people. Guide left without confirming that everybody was there. Segovia and Toledo is too beautiful to to be done in this short time. It helped that our entrance tickets were bought by the guide to make entry easier to the castle etc.
Our group of 6 was a few minutes late to the bus and everyone, including the passengers, were very understanding. The bus ride was comfortable (with wifi!) and they way they break it up for the two cities didn't make you feel like you were on the bus all that long. My husband and I enjoy history so seeing these medieval cities was very cool. The tour guide (I think Meghan but I'm not sure) was funny and knowledgeable. She spoke the tour in both English and Spanish and gave us time at each location to walk around. Segovia was impressive and the Alcazar with its rich history was amazing but the tour did not include the tower view tickets which I think I would have liked to see. The only bad part was the lunch hour felt rushed since the service people in Toledo were entirely too laid back. It added stress to what was until that time a very relaxing tour. The Cathedral was amazing and Meghan? did an excellent job taking us around. If you have an extra day in Madrid, I highly recommend this tour but remember it is an all day event.
