Traveler Tips


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!!
This is how live/day tours in other countries/key cities are conducted such as in Rome, Paris, and New York.
The early start time and less running subway cars on a saturday almost made me miss the tour so be careful.

Pretty towns
Katherine_S, Dec 2021
I came by myself. I'm glad I joined this group, it was small and the tour guide was energetic about the history. I learned a lot! The towns are small so you get to explore both really well!

A truly enjoyable and uplifting day!
Adelberto_B, Sep 2021
It was a dream come true for me, as I have always wanted to visit Avila. The visit to Salamanca was very enlightening, gave us a history of the university and how it’s on par with the other very old universities in Europe like Sorbonne.

Very average, lousy bus
Gabriel_P, Sep 2021
Bad: The Bus was lousy and small, very uncomfortable. The same company sent big buses to other tours, while they provided a small one rather very uncomfortable for this one... The guide never stoped talking with the bus driver. At 7:40am and with more than two hours to get there, everyone wanted to sleep. Again I compared the tour from the previous day with this one, and the day before the guide kindly stated that otherwise asked upon, he would remain silent to give us space to sleep on the road. But our guide just kept talking for the complete two and a half hours with the driver. Also, while she was kind and had good explanations at the sites, they were rather short and simple. From over hearing other guides at the sites, we could tell that ours didn't had that much information, which is always interesting to hear.
