The tour was very good and the guide was very knowledgable and kind. However, at times It felt rushed. Lunch in segovia was 1 hour and doesn't leave time to eat and shop or venture on your own much so we had to eat rushed and run to the meeting lovation. But it was still a great experience both cities are so interesting!

Our guide Hugo was marvellous - speaks good English tells the history well and is also very humorous. Makes the entire trip very interesting. Trip started 15 min late but the journey was good. Bus is very clean n comfortable. Partigularly like the earpiece n audio commentary by Hugo made the trip very rich. Definitely recommend this to anyone thinking of visiting Avila & Sergovia.

What we saw was very good, and the guide, Andrea, was very good also. As usual there were a couple of people who were 20 min late after lunch, which cost us being able to go into the cathedral in Segovia. The guide should have sent us into the cathedral while she waited for the latecomers. They could have missed it instead of the whole group. For those of you reading this that are always late and make the whole group wait, shame on you for being selfish. Please think about those standing waiting for you.
