What people are saying about Province of Avila

Well paced tour with informative guides and enough time for food and rest breaks! For anyone considering the tour, it's a great way to see both cities and I'd highly recommend it. We got 15000 steps in so wear comfortable gear and get your naps in on the bus! Also get a good feed in Ávila, there won't be enough time for anything other than a light snack in Segovia before heading back to Madrid - we got a cochinillo asado and it was delightful (not for the veggies :D ).

Our family of 4 highly recommend this tour. It started and ended on time, guide Irene was well-versed on history, with a pinch of humour. Sights are made more interesting with guides like her. Nice touch to organise aperitif as part of the tour. Truly memorable`and would do similar tours in future.

Outstanding experience learning about these Spanish walled cities rich in history. Our guides were phenomenal. Irene and Herman was knowledgeable and very engaging. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and the bus was comfortable and very safe.

Great itinerary to see these two beautiful places. Perfect schedule, walking tour wasn’t too fast paced or too slow to be boring. Guides were excellent and very knowledgeable.

It was a great experience. Be prepared to walk but it is worth it! The guide, Maria, was great.
