Taking a tour to Avila and Segovia is a wise choice. It is difficult to arrange public transportation and the drive time is 4 hours of the trip. I would recommend taking the tour But staying over night in Segovia. It’s charming at night and it is very easy to take the 30 minute train back into Madrid to the Chamartín station. The tour guides were so informative and personable, as well.

The tour was in english and spanish. Herman our guide managed the time well, he was friendly and explained the history of significant landmarks. Our coach driver was also very good, drove carefully and at a pace which got us through the sites and back to Madrid in good time. Highly recommended!

I thought it was pretty good, just a little rushed. But it was worth the trip. The guide Cristina is very friendly, good physical preparation for the routes and explains everything in detail. Congratulations Christina!

Excellent tour and very illustrative, the story and description of the guide Rafael also with high qualification, we have been very satisfied and happy to have preferred this company
