Full description

Embark on a tour to discover the main attractions of Toledo and Segovia, two of the most popular cities in Spain, both declared World Heritage Sites by UNESCO. Enjoy guided walks, entry tickets to the Alcázar of Segovia, and plenty of free time to explore. Your trip also includes a stop in Avila.

Starting from Ventas in Madrid, depart first thing in the morning to Toledo. Once there, stop at a viewpoint next to the city to take unbeatable panoramic photos. Next, begin your guided visit to Zocodover Square, before crossing over the river to reach the San Martín Bridge.

Walking through the narrow streets of Toledo, head to the cathedral. On the way, see the Jewish neighborhood, learn about some of Toledo's illustrious characters, and discover the best places to buy typical Toledo products.

Next, you will have the chance to visit a damasquinado workshop where you will observe artisans as they inlay gold and silver threads to create handicrafts that can be purchased as souvenirs.

Head to Segovia and enjoy some free time on your own to experience the gastronomy of the city before starting your guided visit. Your guide will show you a good spot to admire the views of the mountains and will talk about Segovian architecture.

With your guide, walk to the Alcázar of Segovia, seeing the Cathedral of Segovia and the Plaza Mayor on your way. Once there, greet your guide who will then give you access to visit the inside of the castle. Buy souvenirs, take photos, or explore the area further before going to Avila.

The last stop will be in Avila where you’ll walk through the streets and corners to experience the city's great heritage legacy.

Enjoy views of the city's medieval walls dating from the 11th century and visit the Mirador de los Cuatro Postes monument, where you'll have the opportunity to take pictures.

It was good... However, Vanessa seems new as she doesn't talk that much though she was trying to be informative but the tour wasn't fun or lively. As for Jose he seems to know a lot and shared information about Avila. The tour became lively when he overtake or handled the group going to Avila. Overall, glad to see all of the historical places.

Jose was a fantastic guide. He was thorough with his instructions and we all knew exact what to expect. He was very knowledgeable of the facts about the areas visited. The tour required a lot of walking, some over slopes, cobblestone roads, and steps so just be ready, and wear sturdy shoes. Oh - the recommendation in Segovia was very good! The cochinillo, flat bean soup, dessert was worth the price!
