It was long but very informative day, 3 hour bus ride to Salamanca. Both sites visited were impressive and would like to spend more time in Salamanca. Both tour guides were extremely friendly and helpful. Tour was bin-lingual on a large bus which is not optimal.
Great day visiting 2 beautiful places. The guide Maria was great. I had been to Avila before, but this tour covered some places the tour I did several years ago did not cover. The tour includes cathedral visits in both places - something I was not expecting!
We did our tour in March and it snowed on our way to Salamanca. That made for a very pretty drive. Our guide thoroughly explained the significance of the walls, the university, the culture, and made great food recommendations. It was a good day on the bus and walking.
We had the pleasure of the same tour guide Stef who was relaxed, amazing and very knowledgable.
If you get her as a guide just sit back and relax.
Stef goes over everything before you get out of the bus as well as at the meeting point. Even puts it on a map for you.
