What to Expect
Head to central Madrid to board your air-conditioned coach to Avila. Your guide tells you the history of the pilgrimage site, which is also the birthplace of the Spanish mystic, Saint Teresa. At the Four Posts (Cuatro Postes), see one of the best-preserved medieval bastions in Spain. Visit the city walls, towers, churches, and the tomb of a martyred saint, including alabaster Avila Cathedral and the Basilica of St. Vincent. Then reboard for the trip to Segovia’s city center, where you see a 2-tiered Roman aqueduct, one of the best-preserved ancient monuments in Spain. Continue to UNESCO-listed Alcazar, an 11-century fortress-palace. After a guided tour, head to Segovia Cathedral. Take some free time for lunch (at your own expense) or upgrade for either a simple meal or Segovian feast. Then, return to Madrid where you’re dropped off at the original departure point.

This full day tour was well narrated in both English and Spanish. Manolo, our guide, repeated everything exactly in both languages. He was extremely knowledgeable about the cities and their character. The tour was paced well. We had a very good sense of both cities and never

Dear scroberts09, Firstly I would like to apologise that the tour to Avila and Segovia did not meet your expectations. Kindly take note that we strive to provide an outstanding service and make sure that our tours are informative and interesting with enough time to get to know the places we visit. I am deeply sadden that you felt that you did not spent sufficient time at some of the points of interest and could not fully enjoy them, however it is satisfying to learn that you could spend a nice amount of time at the Segovia castle. We will transfer your comments to the corresponding department in order to improve the quality of the service provided to the customer. Sincerely, Alex B.

Dear sms0315, Thank you for taking the time to write such a detailed review on our tour to Ávila and Segovia. First of all, I would like to point out that the time available on this tour is very tight taking into account the distance between these two cities, and with Madrid as well. Please, kindly take into account that there is a timing established for the tour that needs to be followed in order to guarantee the visit and explanation of everything included in the program. Secondly, please note that unfortunately it is not possible to stop for photo opportunities or explain some things found in the way to the main points of interest since it would make those visits even shorter. I deeply regret your expectations for the tour were not met. Nevertheless, I would like to thank again the comments provided on the tour, since these are our greatest source of information to adapt the excursion to the needs of our customers. I hope you had a pleasant stay in Madrid. Best regards, Alex B.
