Friendly tour guide who was able to provide a lot of interesting information. Great price for the two cities including a ticket for Alcazar, but the wording "with option Avila" was a bit confusing, since the 3rd city is not included in this ticket. Competent and patient care, good timing and comfortable coaches - really recommendable day trip.

My family of four with two adults and two children thoroughly enjoyed our tour with John! Three hours was the perfect amount of time to see the city and hear all of John’s wonderful insights and stories. The tuk-tuk was comfortable to ride in, with great visibility for all passengers! Highly recommend!

I offered this dinner show to my parents, they were delighted, the artists are extraordinary!

A unique experience! The artists are excellent. The service is the first.

Informative tour and great guide Laura, a great orientation to Madrid
