Depart Madrid by air-conditioned coach and relax onboard as you travel toward your first stop, Avila.

En route, listen as your guide provides fascinating commentary about this beautifully preserved medieval city, the birthplace of the Spanish mystic, Saint Teresa, in the 16th century.

Then, continue to Segovia, a history-steeped city with Roman roots, set between the Eresma and Clamores rivers.

Learn about the construction of the aqueduct during the 1st century, and its 166 arches and 120 pillars.

Next, head to the Alcazar, a spectacular 11th-century fortress-palace that was one of the inspirations behind Walt Disney's Cinderella castle. Take a guided tour of the UNESCO-listed, building as you hear how it served as a royal palace, prison and artillery college.

Afterward, explore some of old Segovia’s other highlights, including Segovia Cathedral, the last Gothic cathedral to be built in Spain.

Good but mostly in Spanish
, Apr 2022
I was expecting a small tour in English, but it was a mixed group. The guide narrated in both Spanish and English, but 75% was in Spanish, so we we struggled to stay focused on what the guide was saying- so much was not understood by us.
Obscure meeting point.
, Mar 2022
Company office is located on a hill resembling the tower of babel with 35-40 small streets and no arrows or company labels. Horrible experience and they refuse to offer refunds.

Dear Hortensia_H, I regret to learn you were not able to join the tour because of not being at the departure point on time. Please note our office address is indicated on the voucher, we also request customers to arrive 15 minutes before the tour to avoid this type of issue. Sincerely,
Fantastic Tour

March 11, 2022. Jorge was our guide..He set a perfect pace, was extremely knowledgeable and very friendly! Avila and Segovia were fantastic! Highly recommend this tour!
Quick Visit to Avila and Segovia
, Dec 2021
The visit to Avila was very short and superficial: climb one short section of the wall and see the outside of the cathedral. By skipping the tour lunch, we had a nice time wandering the streets of old Segovia. The visit to the alcazar was interesting. The tour guide was pleasant but distant. His commentary was canned. However, the three times I asked questions, he was courteous and responsive.

Exploring Avila was...
, Nov 2021
Exploring Avila was interesting and seeing the wall. Segovia was just as interesting and seeing the water service from 2000 years ago still standing and seeing how advanced Roman architecture was for the time.
Well worth the money. Highly recommend.
, Sep 2021
Our guide was excellent. Even though she had to do the presentation in two languages, she always took the time to make sure both groups understood. The walled city of Avila was stunning. In Segovia, the two highlights were the aqueduct and the Alcazar, although the entire town was beautiful.

Julia Tours gets an A+
, Aug 2021
This tour was amazing. We saw the highlights of both cities, and our guide, Jorge, hit the right tone for the tour. He transitioned seamlessly between Spanish and English throughout the day, even though my husband was the only one who didn’t speak Spanish. Interesting historical facts were shared and questions answered. We opted for the lunch included and felt it was worth the money.
