El guía fue muy amable y bien informado. Me gusto bastante pero la una razón por ir a Ávila era ver el convento de Santa Teresa. No nos lo enseñó y estuvimos ahí. Yo no sabia y hubiera ido sin el grupo pero pensaba que quizás estaba en otro sitio y nos iban a llevar después. No lo hicieron y estoy pero bien triste porque no puedo regresar.

Continue the trip to Toledo, the third city declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and known for its long Christian, Jewish, and Muslim historical tradition.
Estuvo muy bueno. El guía fue muy atento y contribuyó a que fuera una buena experiencia. Las ciudades buenísimas, Toledo es magnífica, las murallas de Avila y el castillo en Segovia son bellísimos. Hicimos varias paradas muy buenas, lo disfrutamos mucho. Eso sí… un tanto caluroso… hay que caminar bastante y bueno… llegamos de regreso a las 7pm. Pero era parte de la dinámica. Recomendado!!

Excellent! Really good documentations of the guide and very helpful. The driver was great, on return everybody slept in the van! Instead of renting a car and do it on your own, this trip with tour guide is the best: taking all your worries so you dive in a part of Spanish History and culture. Thank you guys!
The tour is perfect! The bus is comfortable, the tour guide speaks several languages and her English was perfect. The lunch was fabulous and super yummy. The amount of time given to tour each town was just right and we were able to fit some tourist shopping in too.
Our guide, Diego had so much knowledge that he shared with us. He also spoke in Spanish and English throughout the entire tour to accommodate everyone. It was great!
It was a good trip if you have limited time and want to experience a little bit of the three different towns.
