Excellent day and tour guide. Our guide was delightful. She was knowledgeable and translated every single word to ensure all travelors understood. She also gave us space to do our thing. This is a plus. Both cities are treasure troves of history and culture. Worth every penny.

Great trip, well worth the 9 hours! Amazing sights, particularly the aqueduct in Segovia. Guide was really informative, with good English.

I highly highly (if i can, highly) recommend this. Everything about it was just perfect. The price is very reasonable. The length of the trip is enough. And Barbara, our guide is awesome! It’s worth it rather than jumping on and off trains to cover both cities.

Loved this tour especially the city of Segovia with its amazing aqueduct. Avila is a World Heritage monument and one of the oldest cities in Spain. The 17th-century convent of St. Teresa of Avila is located here which is a destination for Catholic pilgrims to Avila. Catherine was our tour guide and I highly recommend to do this tour with her.

Fantastic Tour! Pick up in coach was prompt. Small group tour and was able to have our own time in Segovia to look around which was perfect for us on a very hot summer day with 2 younger children. Avila and Segovia are both beautiful places to visit. We found a perfect place for lunch in Segovia too

This was a very long day, but I think it was really a favorite tour in Madrid. I read the reviews so was prepared for what happened. Unfortunately this is a tour of two languages. Most of the people on the bus speak Spanish and then there were about 8 of us who were English speakers. So you have to listen to lots of dialogue we couldn't understand. It made the tour harder to follow. More complicated. But Avila's walls were fantastic! What a beautiful sight! There were a couple of interesting churches we went to as well. Segovia was really a great place. The aqueducts were really impressive! We did not opt for the lunch so ate on our own. I would recommend that. We ate at a great restaurant that served the local speciality, Cochinillo. It's delicious! The Gothic cathedral and the Alcazar of Segovia are wonderful places to visit. Loved this tour! The ride home was long because of an accident, but still so glad we went! Highly recommend!

Katherine our tour guide was excellent. She was very informative and upbeat. We loved that there were only 8 people in the group so we had plenty of time to explore. We all got along so well and shared pictures. We also had a chance to sample their specialty in Segovia which is cochinilla roast pig.. The restaurants in Segovia were all packed. The places that were highly recommended were full and could not seat us until after a couple of hours. Not a big deal because all the other restaurants were good too. You just have to walk fast so you can find a place to eat since all places are packed. Avila was beautiful. We were very fortunate to see this beautiful and religious place. The Aqueduct in Segovia was amazing and Alcazar was so grand and beautiful. We are all in awe that all these places are so well maintained. Beautiful and Blessed experience. These tour is worth it. We went in October thinking that it will be less crowds and cooler. Wrong! It was hot but not humid like September and Madrid is beautiful so you just cant keep the crowds away. Loved this tour and highly recommended.

As it says. Takes you to both cities and leaves you in center.

This was a wonderful tour! I was picked up at my hotel promptly at the scheduled time and taken to the meeting spot. Since I speak Spanish fluently, it didn't matter to me if the guide spoke English or Spanish. As it turned out, I was in a group of all Spanish speakers, with our wonderful guide Barbara. She and the driver had a really good relationship and they kept us entertained while we were on the bus. There was so much to see and so much to do, but we didn't waste any time and didn't miss anything important. We even had enough time to shop and to have lunch in Segovia. I highly recommend El Desván if you find yourself looking for a place to eat in Segovia.
